What happens when you learn to communicate better with everyone? No doubt you’ve had to endure a painfully awkward conversation, more than once in your life. Maybe it was a stranger, a colleague, or a date. Maybe it was a group discussion. You found yourself breaking a sweat, not knowing what to say. The more time passed, the more tense you became. You thought about all the communication books you’ve read in your life and wished you had them with you…to knock yourself unconscious as a way out of the conversation. The best thing about the whole situation was the moment it ended.

Now, you also came across people in your life who effortlessly led you through a conversation. They were charming, fun, and made you feel comfortable. You enjoyed it so much and felt uplifted afterwards. This is the audiobook that will teach you to be that person. By the time you finish listening, you’ll know how to talk to anyone about anything.

Very impactful

The pace of this Audio book is spot on. It also covers enough examples as well as fundamentals to have you wanting to talk to more people immediately, this coming from the ultimate introvert is a large statement and this books really backs it up.

It’s definitely worth the read and with enough practice you’ll have the basics of conversation locked in and ready to go.

Not my favorite.

I did not finish the book because I returned it after the first 30 minutes or so. I think this book has a good message overall, but for me and what I was looking for, this book was too basic as if teaching someone to converse for the first time. I was looking for a book to help me learn to express myself better and speak my feelings instead of keeping them inside, which I did not get out of this book.

So happy that I got this book

The course is jam-packed with useful tales that assist to bring the topic to life. I particularly appreciated the relaxed lecture approach and case examples. Ian Tuhovsky, the host, is clearly enthusiastic about the subject and possesses a lot of hard-won knowledge and expertise.

Very poor and unrealistic tips for conversation.

Maybe it’s because I’m English but I couldn’t get to grips with this audio book. Too cheesy and unrealistic. I tried- listened twice- but no use from me I’m afraid.

Hopeless

This is a list of various techniques of how to converse. Minimal explanation, almost no examples. Am I supposed to memorise this book cover to cover? Absolutely awful! If I wanted a list, I’d have googled it and read some blogger’s attempt to monetise a Wikipedia list.

Avoid!

Fantastic and amazing

These thought-provoking seminars on communication have taught me a lot. It is my conviction that this is one of the greatest options accessible to me for private education. As a good communicator, I now feel more prepared to negotiate the world around me. It comes highly recommended.
