Publisher's Summary

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to cope with people who never know when to be quiet. Some people talk just to hear themselves talk, while others have to explain every detail of their lives. Some people never seem to shut up, no matter if they are monopolizing the conversation or you have a meeting to start. You will no doubt be familiar with these people because they are also the ones who can never let you finish your story before they unkindly interrupt you with a similar story that, to them, is even better. However the person is talking too much, and you can get them to shut up. You need to, if you want them to listen to you. People who can't shut up generally just ramble on from subject to subject, even when the subject they are bouncing to has no relevance to the topic that is actually being talked about. These folks can be some of the most irritating people to socialize with. They can, in a real sense, put a damper on an otherwise enjoyable time, so to save yourself a lot of frustration you need to know how to cope with them.

Poor quality no real usefulness

I thought I’d give this a try to see if I could get any tips on this improving my conversation skills. Did not get any useful tips.

It may be helpful for teenagers or young adults fresh out of school.

I found some of the language a bit rude and politically incorrect.
Using words like stupid and shut way too often just describes the authors vocabulary.

The narrator is a robot...no I take that back, a robot would have be more entertaining.

I try not leave bad reviews but I hope I can say someone the money.
