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.

Unfortunately, the recording starts from again at the beginning around minute 40. If you can skip to minute 40 and start listening from there, this is a pleasant and informative read. I loved 40+ from there!
