Took a chance

Saw this book mentioned in a youtube video and took a bit of a chance on it and im very grateful I did because it already helped me get thru (and really do well!) at a family wedding this weekend, something I was dreading as it was so full of people I didn't know. I was able to strike up conversations, hold small talk and really excel.

One I really liked

First book in a while that I actually really liked. I can find some conversation / social situations quite difficult so this book was a welcome guide and gave me a lot of "tools" to help handle different situations.

Learning new (or forgotten) skills

Not only did I learn a heap of new stuff, I also got a good and clear reminder of skills and conversation tips I had forgotten from the past. A very valuable book I have already listened to twice now.

Wasn’t sure at first but ended up loving it

As i said in my headline, I wasn’t sure at first. I was a little diubious simply as I have tried similar books to this and i thought it might be the same thing again - but, by the time i got to the end, I am happy to say I was proven wrong! This is a very different book. Practical, easy to follow and valuable. I found it very very motivating which is what I needed.

Using this everyday

Great tips - I suffer from shyness and sometimes low self-esteem, especially with small talk and social situations but I already feel a lot more calm and confident about these situations only 2 days after getting this book.

EXCELLENT!

So impressed with this book, took a bit fo a chance on it but I am so so glad I did as I know for a fact it has helped me massively improved my conversation and general social skills. Until this book I never realised quite how much I was doing wrong, this was a real (life changing) eye opener for me!

Enjoyed and found the whole book valuable but I particularly liked the stuff on body language and it was different from what I had read in the past. Putting it all to great use lately

Highly effective.

The skills and tips given in this book, I found to be highly effective. I guess everyone is different, but to me, I find conversation FLOWS easier now and I have a lot more confidence in social situation, something I was perhaps lacking a little of in the past. I loved the sections on body language, I am shocked at how effective this can be

Finally, something that makes sense

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would and I have - why? Because it actually makes sense! So many of these books are full of utter nonsense that is impossible to understand but this one is laid out in such a unique way. It all made perfect sense and is already proving to have a positive impact on my life!

Conversation skills

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend to anyone who wishes to improve their communication skills, and was also superbly narrated which was quite refreshing as I’ve listened or tried to listen to similar books, but had to turn off due to the boring monotone robotic voice, the exact opposite of what we’re trying to achieve. Derr.

Very good audiobook!

If your conversation skills are rusty and need a refresher course, this book is for you.

I’ve just finished the book and I recommend it. It’s very good.

Fundamentally sound

This book I feel hits the spot when it comes to an easy listen, making you aware of fundamental issues which I believe is the first step to becoming a great conversationalist. Unlike many other well known books like ‘how to win friends and influence people’ this book gets into the guts of concepts which you should further look into and practice in your day to day interactions. This is a simple book but if used effectively can prove wonders.

Not sufficiently in-depth

I felt this audiobook was rather superficial lacking examples. It was entertaining, not so much actionable.

Brings up a lot of good points but needs to expand

Brings up a lot of good points about social interaction, but could expand on many of those points instead of just listing them. I felt like I was struggling to remember and take in stuff as it came at me too fast.
