Conversation skills

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend to anyone who wishes to improve their communication skills, and was also superbly narrated which was quite refreshing as I’ve listened or tried to listen to similar books, but had to turn off due to the boring monotone robotic voice, the exact opposite of what we’re trying to achieve. Derr.

Took a chance

Saw this book mentioned in a youtube video and took a bit of a chance on it and im very grateful I did because it already helped me get thru (and really do well!) at a family wedding this weekend, something I was dreading as it was so full of people I didn't know. I was able to strike up conversations, hold small talk and really excel.

One I really liked

First book in a while that I actually really liked. I can find some conversation / social situations quite difficult so this book was a welcome guide and gave me a lot of "tools" to help handle different situations.

Learning new (or forgotten) skills

Not only did I learn a heap of new stuff, I also got a good and clear reminder of skills and conversation tips I had forgotten from the past. A very valuable book I have already listened to twice now.

Wasn’t sure at first but ended up loving it

As i said in my headline, I wasn’t sure at first. I was a little diubious simply as I have tried similar books to this and i thought it might be the same thing again - but, by the time i got to the end, I am happy to say I was proven wrong! This is a very different book. Practical, easy to follow and valuable. I found it very very motivating which is what I needed.

Using this everyday

Great tips - I suffer from shyness and sometimes low self-esteem, especially with small talk and social situations but I already feel a lot more calm and confident about these situations only 2 days after getting this book.
