In The Art of Conversation, Catherine Blyth eloquently points out the sorry state of disrepair that conversation has fallen into - and then, taking examples from history, literature, philosophy, anthropology, and popular culture, she gives us the tools to rebuild. Her prose embodies the conversational values she promotes: It's smart, succinct, self-deprecating, and light on its feet.

Missing a Majority of the Book

For some reason, this book only includes the first few chapters. Of course, Catherine is a delightful narrator...but this book lacks completeness and is not worth the cost (and trauma) to be forced to re-listen to the beginning bits of the book.

Audible, please replace this recording with the full version. If not available, please edit the description to include this information. It's misleading to not disclose this information to customers.
