Spoken Like A Pro
More than your average reference
This is truly an informative and interesting book; one that many people could learn from. It could help not only the lay person learn some new terms, but also management to better understand their employees. I can only hope that a sequel comes out with even more professions included.

A very enjoyable handbook for those interested in the ever-morphing English language.
As someone in the Graphic Design field, I found it very accurate as well.

A good idea, and fairly well executed. However, the range of professions represented is much more limited than I had hoped when I bought it.
Useful as far as it goes, and quite insightful.

Spoken like a pro
A great book for any business person, as it will help you “tune in” to your clients and customers, to better understand the way that they talk and what they’re really saying. It’s entertaining but also informative, and a great conversation starter at any function. My favorite section was the one on retail. Now I really feel like an informed shopper!
