Publisher's Summary

Good conversation is at the heart of networking, meetings, interviews, negotiations and raising your profile. It can ease your way in work, enabling you to build alliances, create strong relationships with staff, bosses and clients, succeed at interviews, motivate and inspire. But conversation is something most of us were never taught! We learn to speak as babies, but how conversation actually works is something most of us pick up only haphazardly, and many have yet to learn. Why is it some of us are stuck for words, but others blabber or can’t stop? What is it that some people have naturally which enables them to converse comfortably and easily, to engage people and build better relationships? The Art of Conversation will show you step by step how to converse skillfully and enjoyably with other people, at home, at work, on the phone and in the street - even if you’re daunted now, discover the difference good conversation can make in every aspect of your life.

It's also about the way you talk

What did you like most about The Art of Conversation?

Great audio book and very useful but so spoiled by the fact that the lady voicing it talks to you like you are a moron. Why can't she just speak normally??

Didn't deliver

I bought this book, influenced to a large extent by the title and its "promise". Sadly, this is just "another" book about communication with subject areas covered much better by others in other books I have read. There wasn't much original work in this book and a lot is taken from other people's quotes or work. The book talks a lot about why communication is important, dealing with conflict etc, but I found little practical help on "the art of conversation". Very disappointing.
