I would put this book in the category of "professional self help". Because of my desire to further my career, I have strayed away from the enjoyment of fiction and my David Baldacci obsession to this genre. I received this book on Saturday, 5/27/18, and finished it within two days. It is a very short read, around ~200 pages, large print, small pages, and has several comic-style strips, and long lists taking up space, making it a quick read (~3 hours).

As far as content goes, the book actually does deliver. It has some very detailed advice regarding speaking to people from starting a conversation, continuing a conversation, transitions, topics of conversation, etc. The reason I knocked off one star is because each category the author gives taxonomies (IE: The 5 types of conversation killers), but does not go on to direct the reader on how to correct this behavior. One other pitfall I found in the book is the amount of "confidence building" or "ego stroking" the author conveys, although I understand the audience and reason for this, it is a little too much at times.

Overall I think this book is great, especially for people who experience anxiety with social situations as I do. With that being said, the book does not do the work for you, but it does prepare you on how to effectively make social situations more successful. I even gave it to my intern, who is a recent college grad, and has been open about her anxiety at professional mixers, and she found it very helpful. Some of the advice can easily be implemented very successfully the same day as reading, which I found to give me a big confidence boost.

Seems like other books in this genre assume there is some level of social competence in the reader. Which, I suppose there might be some use to that, but this does not make that assumption. This book is just what I needed. Specific examples, specific suggestions to say, It has already helped me to make small talk. I just had to memorize a few phrases she suggested to get things going, and other phrases for what to say when the conversation has hit a dead spot, and the rest of the conversation takes care of itself.

This useful and concise book contains entertaining anecdotes, elements and suggestions that are immediately actionable, confidence builders and lists of topics and questions that can be used to get a conversation started. It covers everything from networking events to dating - airports and air time. It is a good book, a useful resource, and was an insightful read.

I've been in sales for most of my professional life but have actually learned from this book. I bought it for a family member who has benefited as well. Small talk and connecting with others is, I believe, a basic skill that everyone should learn by young adulthood. Sadly, with today's technology obsessions, it's a skill that is dying out.

What a helpful book. I check the lists of opening lines before I go out socially and try one or two each time. Like magic they work. Where was this help when I needed it in years past. Well, got it now and it is a keeper!
  • Uylo
The book does exactly what it is supposed to do. It is not about how to form lasting relationships, but about how to engage in casual conversations in social situations. For the shy person who never knows exactly how to start or maintain a conversation it is an excellent guide to the practicalities of everyday conversation.

As a server I can say this book helped me a ton. One book that I’ll definitely read again soon.
A good read with lots of good information. Much was basic and not much use to a more experienced person, but great for my teenage daughter who found this enlightening.
