This book sucks

Seriously. It’s not so much a book about small talk as it is a book that just says the words “small talk” over and over and over...

Good listen

I love this book. I like the fact that it moved quickly and gave me a few tips for several situations. I'm not looking for a whole counseling session I just want to be able to talk to people so this was a wonderful book to give me a push in the right direction!

Very informative and provides great examples!

The book is great, it covers a lot of situations that you come across in your daily life. It provides you with great tools to use in communication and gives you great examples for clear understanding of how to use the tools. It's also great for understanding why communicating with these tools work so effectively. I enjoyed it thoroughly!

Exceptional book. Straight to the point.

I loved the book and that it covered off on a number of different regularly occurring scenarios. My only recommendation would be to title the chapter in the audio book so listeners can revisit chapters at a later time that are pertinent to them.

A great resource!

This book had great advice for improving communication with job interviews and life in general! The narrator was awesome and as someone already said, sounded like he was speaking to me rather than reading a book. I enjoyed this audiobook and highly recommend it.

Loved this book a great deal!

This book has been extremely helpful to me because I am a bit of an introvert. I'm currently dating someone who is a very sociable person so the fact that I am lacking in this area is apparent. He has challenged me to work on my communication skills to adapt and I have accepted the challenge. I believe that the material you covered will be extremely helpful the more I work on it. Thank you!
