So glad I purchased.

"After making it through this book I honestly can’t tell if the timing lines up with other things in my life but at some point in the middle a loft of the apprehension I had of starting conversations with others is gone. It feels like a literal weight has been lifted off of my soldiers and I don’t feel as reluctant to partake in conversations with other people.
It was good! I can’t say that all conversation openers were relevant to real life, but it’s still was helpful book! It was worth getting just for learning about ‘conversation offenses’! This book can definitely help you to get more mindful!"

Great book with concrete suggestions

"I always felt like a good communicator, although recently I felt like I faltered at small-talk and feared difficult meetings. This really helped to raise my level of confidence with practical advice and once again feel like I can talk to anyone. Thank you Jason Miller. Great job with this one! Learning and applying the concepts presented here will change your life - personally and professionally - for the better. The lectures start from the basics and work their way through exactly how communication works. This is useful for anyone who wants to learn how to better communicate with other."

so bad couldn't take it after 20 minutes

I tried to give it a chance, forced myself to listen, just couldn't. I can't see either the author or narrator having anyone talk to them more tan 30 seconds before walking away.

Solid book!

Great book and an easy listen, even at 1.4x the speed. Lots of great content albeit in some case a little light on the detail.

Worth buying and will recommend it to others.

Great Audible

Definitely one the best Audible I have audiobook recording on this subject. I struggle with social anxiety and have read quite a few Audible related to this area. The book offers clear and concise information without getting bogged down in anecdotes like other Audible tend to do. It has a lot of relocatable and useful information that I have been able to put in to practice. It is very well written and covers the topic brilliantly.

This is one of the best books

"This is one of the best books I've listen. I like self learning listening. This one really stayed with me, it's an easy listen and when you put it into motion you'll see the difference. The title is a little deceiving as there is no violence. It's just how we typically speak. After making it through this book I honestly can’t tell if the timing lines up with other things in my life but at some point in the middle a loft of the apprehension I had of starting conversations with others is gone.

By being soft and confident you can change how you look out the window of your life to make real change. This is one of the best books I've listen. I like self learning listening. This one really stayed with me, it's an easy listen and when you put it into motion you'll see the difference. The title is a little deceiving as there is no violence.
