"Narrator is irritating"
Interesting but not really mind blowing. One thing I hated is the narrators voice and the way he speaks, it is so irritating, it's like he's trying to sound so cool and laid back but it was just distracting.
"Nailed... My innate?? "
He did a really great job at laying down what he had. Thing is, I already knew and do much of this book like I breathe.
Also it sits on the verge of my personal morals. He says it's not manipulation, yet I can only support that if when you follow his guidelines that you reeaaalllyy ARE interested. Otherwise.... It's manipulation.
Liked it. Just didn't learn anything new.
I admit there were some good points made, but "Interrupting as a conversation tactic" was ridiculous. Respect the other's person thought process over endearing yourself, selfishly, to them by interrupting to agree. :D :D :D Seriously had me LOL
The most interesting aspect was that someone with such a shallow approach to conversation would feel so strongly impelled to share it as "the" right approach.
"Introduction to Conversation"
This is a book for people who have only recently begun speaking with other humans. The scientist or med student who looked up from their books to notice humanoid life forms passing close to them and decided to attempt communication. Not a bad thing but if you have any facility talking with people you won't learn much here.
"Tips for sociopaths"
This was OK but the underlying agenda and liberal overtones really diminished any lessons that I should have received from this book.
"Political and terrible!!"
If the author gave credible information that was not politically driven!
No; this has made a horrid impression.
VO should be more selective with who they speak for.
Anger and disappointment. I was hoping to use this in one of my future lessons.
I enjoyed this book and will continue to review this book to emerge myself in the absorbing of the lessons taught in this book. the narrator has a trusting voice. like listening too a family member.
"Interesting and applicable"
Though I know it is an introductory book on conversation and argumentation, I think it could have gone a little deeper on some topics. Aside that, it was nice.
"Great book for variety of social situations"
I enjoyed the personal stories and simple and clear explanations. It's great knowing that I can befriend an enemy by using conversation as a lock pick.
By far the best book that I have found on enhancing conversation. He gives simple, practical and easy techniques.
