Surely you've encountered (or even know) that one particular individual in your life who seems to be able to find something witty to say at the drop of a hat, something that knocks everyone's socks off by generating the perfect response at the perfect moment. They're always cracking unexpected jokes, making people laugh, or bantering witty one-liner comments with their endless repertoire of repartees.
So who is this Mr./Ms. Witty? You're scratching your head, dumbfounded and in awe.... How in the world do they do it? And deep down you secretly want to be like them.
Who doesn't, right? Who wouldn't love to be admired, respected, and worshipped for their charming, clever wit? Yet it's much more than that. By being witty you can always come up with the right things to say at the right times; by expressing yourself clearly, concisely, and convincingly in an instant - with a few short words (no more, no less) - you establish authority, credibility, and trust.
That's the power of having a razor-sharp wit! If the pen is mightier than the sword, then the wit is sharper than the knife. However, let's be honest, being witty doesn't always come naturally, especially for those who are less creative and more logical. The good news is that your wit is like a muscle and, like any muscle, it can be trained and built up.

"Great Tips on How to Be Witty."
The examples from the presentation were engaging.
I am the type of person who needs examples and to be told specifically when to apply these tips. This audio tape was effective in that.
The information sticks better for me because someone is presenting and with an engaging tone. As compared to reading, it can get boring.
I wasn't interested in the book.
I was never able to quickly think up some witty sentences right on the spot, but would think of witty sentences after the fact. I have always wanted to be quick when it comes to being witty and this audio tape as exceeded my expectations. When it comes to being witty, it doesn’t mean only being funny. It’s about on how to start interesting conversations to say on the spot, instantly, and not 15 minutes later when the moment has passed. Being witty, people would be able to listen to you more, allowing you to break the ice in conversations and people love being around fun and witty individuals. People who are witty easily get their message across even though others may not agree with them. In some instances, a witty person might be able to change their mind so this is beneficial to politicians and great leaders. This audio tape is one of the few that I have found to fully covers this in a detailed manner. I was able to pick up a lot of helpful tips for becoming more interesting, which the presenter stresses how much it is important to be interesting then being able to make ironic and quick biting remarks. Most of the audiotape contains exercises and examples, making it a useful tool for easy learning of the fundamentals of how to be witty in your conversations. Topics include why certain people are identified as witty, what being witty means, and how to incorporate wit into your daily life in order to take your relationships and conversations to a whole new level. This auto tape was easy to follow and I recommend it for people wanting to improve their witty skills.
Short and simple :)
Really valuable lessons that you can pick up.
Worth the price and time!
The book has very simple and straight to the point format as well as flowing through each of the subjects in a progressive manner; something that I found enjoyable and made the material easier to absorb.
Instant contained fun exercises and plenty of examples throughout the book which makes the book an even greater tool for learning to growth. Add that in with the techniques the author shares such as the “Twister” technique and you have a quick book that gives you a ton of info on how to think up things in pretty much any situation with ease.
I learned how to find things to talk about in a pretty easy way and don't feel as nervous as I once did in certain situations which have boost my confidence quite a bit.
Great listen, simple, fast and right to the point with good exercises and techniques along the way.
