Ignition: Superior Communications Strategies for Creating Stronger Connections isn’t Matthew Moseley’s first book, but he writes with the same fresh spirit of inspiration fueling his initial efforts. Even a cursory reading of the book shows a writer fully immersed in his subject though his passion for the topic doesn’t obscure his message. His time working as a communications director for political bodies such as the Colorado State Senate, corporations such as Xcel, and other significant players speaks to his expert handling of issues surrounding messaging. He is well-versed in this area.
