should be required reading or listening

depending on your preference. so much useful information on how to converse. starting with the yes and, yes really responses to keeping dialog flowing to the HPM template on never being stuck for a response and so much more. As a bonus the book is to the point and a short read or listen. the author doesn't​ belabor points to pad the book. here is the message a couple examples and moves on. more authors should take note less is sometimes more and in this case it is in spades.

Succinct and Helpful

A really good book. Covers the basics of conversation. If you understand the fundamentals of conversation, don't expect epiphanies. Do expect solid, helpful reminders about what works...those things we know or have heard of, but have stopped incorporating into our daily practice in conversations. After all, even those of us who believe we're pretty good at conversation need to go back to the fundamentals over and over until those fundamentals become an unbreakable habit that we practice every day.

Dave

I tried giving this audiobook several attempts to get through it. Quite honestly, I’m surprised this book was published as it seems like all of the information is so basic. It’s great that the author was able to articulate it into words, but it was as simple as stating that the sun comes up in the morning and goes down at night some days there are clouds, and sometimes there is snow on the mountain. This means it’s cold. The book was utterly ridiculous and a waste of money
