Summary

There are 3 simple questions to determine whether you should listen this book.

Does the thought of "small talk" make you cringe? Do you wish you were more magnetic and charismatic? Do you want to learn how to instantly turn surface interactions into lasting and deep connections?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, you need this book immediately!

We’ve all heard that life is about who you know… but that’s only half the picture.

Chatter will show you step by step how to become the person who can build intimate rapport with anyone they meet, expertly work a room, win instant friends, and project a winning image that people will flock to.

This isn’t a book of one-liner conversation topics and generic "you can do it" tips that other books would have you believe will make you successful. Through my 20 Chatter principles, you will learn to master skills that will make you shine in everyday interactions, such as:

  • How to bulletproof your verbal/non-verbal first impression and first 30 seconds of any interaction
  • How to handle conversation lulls and silences – and prevent them in the first place
  • 3 easy ways to be proclaimed as perceptive as a mind reader
  • The best icebreakers for any situation (hint: use your surroundings!)
  • Speaking comfortably on topics that you have little to zero knowledge on
  • 4 ways to make people open up to you on an intimate level.
  • How to handle uncomfortable or hostile topics
  • The best way to gracefully exit a conversation

… as well as advanced communication skills and techniques that will change your life:

  • The building blocks of charisma and how you can embody them
  • How to implement emotional intelligence in your daily life.

Passable

Well Narrated but limited in content. Has a few common sense principles and helpful for someone who may be very shy but not a great deal of detail (audiobook just over an hour)

Some good advises, but quite simple

Although at the beginning he said this book will not include things that you can find on the Internet blogs, some advises are very basic and more or less, a common sense. However, it got some good advises in there. Most importantly, this book is relevant and doesn't go on and on like some self-help books. The given examples and stories also quite good.

The author gives types to sound like a douche bag

Did a frat bro write this book? I am a young business professional who has a good sense of humor but the tips in this book are either inappropriate or tips on how to small talk at a boys night out or a frat house. This is stupid. Besides basic common knowledge this book will teach you how to be "that guy" (aka the jerk). Don't waste your time reading

This is not a good book.

While this was mildly entertaining, many of the recommendations are just flat out terrible advice!

quick and good points

Filled with examples of what not to do followed by examples of what works better and why, for keeping that conversation going strong!

Changed my life.

I'm able to have great conversations with people I meet for rage first time. I'm better at communicating with my family too. It takes a lot of practice but it's worth it

A summary of other people research and books

It's an outline of a very large topic. It's a summary introduction to the topic. Seems like this book it's a shallow condensation of a person who has taken the work of other authors and researchers, summarized and outlined it. Later, past it as his own. Childly written. Useful and helpful never the less as a first book for a teenager.

Worth a read

Overall useful but his hip, dating bias colors the recommendations. I would have found it more useful if the examples had a bit more refinement (especially content about inappropriate conversation).

That said, there are many good nuggets to consider.

Insightful

I think this book contains a lot of good ideas and touched on a lot of issues I have with my own difficulties on starting and holding conversations. I listened to this straight through the first time and will listen to it several more times to help me remember the suggestions when I encounter those stressful moments. I liked the author's voice very much.

Interesting

The information wasn't necessarily new or earth shattering but it was nice to hear it all organized and concise. For the price and the time invested it was worth listening to.
