The book fails at its premise

The book starts with an hour of rambling using overly complicated scientific language. What follows is a set of very generic life tips (not small talk tips!) like read books and dress nicely. The book closes with 2 or 3 actual small talk tips and some cheesy examples.

Disappointing

Pretty disappointing. I expected new ideas and suggestions that weren't so obvious. That could be just me though, others enjoyed it.

The guy reads the book well enough though.

great book

In this book, I realized that there are numerous practices one can employ to get themselves out of their shell all on their own, sorta like a DIY anti-introvert guide.

it works

I still have trouble breaking the ice personality wise, but at least I know exactly what to do and how to do it. It's exhausting for me to follow, but it works.

Not recomendable

This is one of the worst books I have seen by far. It is oriented to appearance and totally full of prejudices. A waste of money and overall of time!. The reader sounds like a computer generated audio. It is horrible.

powerful


Using these ideas can help anyone become a talker rather than a shy, awkward wallflower. I learned more from this quick read than from numerous seminars and have already improved my talking and listening skills

Good

I have a problem with the small talk as such! This book is packed with info including body language and will really help people who find it hard to communicate on a personal or business level.

Easy to follow

book takes you by the hand and shows you step by step how to strike up a conversation with anyone in just about any situation. So many people, me included, as so intimidated of talking to people we miss out on so many opportunities.
