Good new perspective on the benefits of small talk

What did you like most about Small Talk - How to Connect Effortlessly with Anyone?

I'm generally shy and tend to avoid small talk because it doesn't feel comfortable or natural to me, but this book has helped to shift my mindset a bit and put the concept of small talk in a new light where I can appreciate the potential benefits I may be missing out on by avoiding small talk situations.


Any additional comments?

I also liked the cast recording as it made the dialogue examples feel more real.

The power of small talk

"Small Talk" delivers so many practical lessons for any level of English speaker. As a native English speaker it might be easy to take for granted or forget the power of small talk since we use it as a tool to transition into and out of daily scenarios. This book brings greater awareness to not only the techniques of small talk, but also a greater understanding of the associated human bahaviour. These are particularly helpful lessons for someone keen to sharpen their interaction skills as small talk is not always about talking, it also has much to do with social judgement and perspective.
