Wish you knew how to walk up to anyone and break the ice effortlessly? Do you hope to avoid awkward silences and make an instant impression? You'll get more than that in this book: not only what, when, and how to say it, but the exact roots of why from human psychology and interaction.
Flowing conversation is the basis of all of our friendships and relationships, there's no getting around it. Yet sometimes it feels like we just can't connect in the depth we want without some luck on our part. Why? It's because most people haven't broken down the patterns of a great conversation. Specific principles get specific responses, and that's exactly what we want, isn't it?
Each phase of conversation analyzed, from beginning to end, complete with examples, so you can handle any conversation and see it to greater purpose. Every chapter is packed with actionable steps that are far beyond the generic "make eye contact and ask questions" that typically passes for social and conversation development.
Here's what you'll learn:
That promotion you want? That cutie you want to talk to? Better treatment and better friendships all around? Conversation skills are the common thread, and the most powerful tool to getting you everything you want. Most of all, conversation skills are necessary in our lives - making the choice to improve them will allow the best parts of you to shine.

This book is touted by many reviewers negatively as being, "very basic."
I however, absolutely appreciate it's basic nature as I am not a star conversationalist, and will employ many of the lessons I learned in this book with hopes of becoming a better conversationalist. Read and learn!
This book is very basic but had some common sense reminders that are key and great points. Overall very basic. I had a credit left and used it on this.
Don't expect too much from this book but if you only have a short amount of time and want some common sense reminders then this is it.
Some examples were dumb and corny but expected.
I can see why some like this and some do not. It all depends on where you fall in the introvert spectrum. Most concepts are pretty basic here. I enjoyed it but was looking for more ways and examples of real life scenarios. Overall good but not great. Oh. And the narrator was kind of monotone.
