Very Basic and a Little Odd

As a mild introvert, I was looking for a book that may make the inevitable small talk moments a little smoother or less anxiety ridden. I nabbed this and wasn’t impressed. Maybe it’s the choice in narrator, but it’s an odd book. The author describes introverts as loners, in an almost insulting manner, and explains small talk as if we don’t get basic concepts. His samples of ways to engage or grow a conversation are so unnatural that if I used them, I’d back away from myself, haha. For example, he suggests you ask things like, “How long have you been associated with bird watching?” I feel a more natural approach might be, “Oh, neat. How long have you been into bird watching?” He also suggests answering questions more long winded (good info) but with weird long and awkward monologues.

Changed how I talk to people

I am not a shy person, but I think this read will boost even my becoming more gregarious, which I hope will boost my sales.

The book has some very awkward grammar.

The odd syntax makes the book hard to follow. I could not finish it and stopped after the second chapter.

This is terrible, who thought this was good

The positive reviews of this book had to be written by the author. No one talks like this. Plus who needs 30 minutes of the definition of an introvert vs extrovert.

Like Chinese instructions converted to English

This is just terrible. At first I thought the author went through a thesaurus trying to find big words. More and more often, the words were used in the wrong context.

Then I began to wonder if the book was written in another language and simply run through a primitive translator.

I can't imagine how the performer read this whole book and didn't call attention to how ridiculous it sounded. It's to the point you spend all your time deciphering the intended meaning, instead of absorbing the content.

Don't waste your time/money/credits.

Definitely a must have!

I absolutely love it, the insight it gave me was great! The things that were talk about I didn't see it coming. It was a great listen and things I have used in my life.

Couldn't finish

The robotic way that it's narrated is too distracting - It made it very hard to focus on what was being said because there was no emphasis or expression. The little bit that I did listen to was a little off-topic and not very helpful, but to be fair I quit listening early on because of the narration - so I wouldn't know if it gets better later in the book. Overall, I plan on returning this book.
