"Sharon, you're a natural. You are articulate, and still react so spontaneously to call-ins! You should have a radio talk show."

—Ralph Steadman, KUGN, Eugene, OR


"I believe the process you teach is the most powerful and effective communication technique I have seen. I wonder what would have happened if you had been at Camp David [for the Middle East peace talks]"

—Maureen A. Tighe, United States Trustee, U.S. Department of Justice


"We have never had so many people call us to get a book simply after hearing a radio interview as we have since your interview was aired on our local NPR (KZYX) radio station."
