This is kettle calling! The book was not bad. It’s another book that I wish I could give to many friends and family but fear that they would take it the wrong way.

I wish the author had a firm editor who did not allow grammar and sentence structure mistakes. And, while the information is valuable and the narration excellent, it is hard to take in large doses.

Books by Margaret Shepherd. I’m sure coonversatiei these examples apply to someone. Feb 19, Amy rated it really liked it. I recently moved to a conversatiej city and have found myself in a lot of new networking situations. I found some parts of this book a bit condescending and silly, but the sections near the end about conversations beyond cocktail parties how to talk to someone much older or much younger than you, how to talk to someone who is terminally ill, how to talk to someone who has had a miscarriage were really thoughtful.


Dec 22, Ariane rated it it was ok. The Art of Civilized Conversation: It put me to sleep a few times. Jun 25, Ty rated it it was ok. Much of the advice given is, for most of us, common sense.
