    good flow and examples for conversations only

    Once the author moves into the science of 'No', there are no citations, just their own limited judgement. I just listened to Chris Voss 'Never Split the Difference ' and his real world examples from an FBI agent's perspective trump the authors here . A decent book overall, just wish they 'stayed in their lane' or cited more sources when making a general assumption.

    should be required reading or listening

    depending on your preference. so much useful information on how to converse. starting with the yes and, yes really responses to keeping dialog flowing to the HPM template on never being stuck for a response and so much more. As a bonus the book is to the point and a short read or listen. the author doesn't​ belabor points to pad the book. here is the message a couple examples and moves on. more authors should take note less is sometimes more and in this case it is in spades.

    Succinct and Helpful

    A really good book. Covers the basics of conversation. If you understand the fundamentals of conversation, don't expect epiphanies. Do expect solid, helpful reminders about what works...those things we know or have heard of, but have stopped incorporating into our daily practice in conversations. After all, even those of us who believe we're pretty good at conversation need to go back to the fundamentals over and over until those fundamentals become an unbreakable habit that we practice every day.

    Misleading Title

    I'm sorry to write a negative review, but this audiobook would be better titled "How To Be Conversationally Agreeable." If that's your goal, this book will reinforce some fairly basic rules of thumb, but it has precious little to offer those wanting to up their wit-game.

    Missing link to other conversation books

    This book is short and sweet. The author connects the dots between many techniques that I have heard about having good conversation. His ideas are practical and easy to start while his examples of successful and unsuccessful attempt gave me several, “ah ha” and “awh shoot” moments. I feel more self aware with a guide to improve.

    better than the Great Courses

    getting ready to host my own podcast, I drove into a collection of books speaking on conversation. this has been the best so far. a strong focus on humor and what people find funny, not only does this book make for an entertaining read, it also gives productive excercises that one can take to task to actually improve their conversations with others. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    A couple tidbits

    The author has a few tidbits in this book that I wouldn’t of thought of - techniques to think about to improve a conversation with people you don’t know well. But then the rest of the book is nothing new it’s all “ listen better” “ don’t think about was going to say next - don’t interrupt “. So maybe the tidbits were worth the read ?
