    I won't dismiss this book entirely because I have taken some key points from the book to use. My biggest issue was the idea of the book is spread everywhere, points are either touched slightly or almost forgotten. I felt something was missing but it's great to know I wasn't the only one. The reviews are mixed here and I can easily sum it up here, there isn't a strong focus in the book. The author uses a lot of her own stories and just adds little quirks to explain something in two sentences.

    A good short read about something a lot of us do, but very few do well. You cannot learn about what you think you already know. Conversations are about content and connection. But always about connection. Enthusiasm alone is no guarantee of a good conversation. Mutual moaning doesn't lead to real connection. Learn how to end conversations that you don't want to drag on. Especially over the phone. Wrap it up, say what you're going to do as a result of the convo (if applicable). Physically stand up. Co A good short read about something a lot of us do, but very few do well. You cannot learn about what you think you already know. Conversations are about content and connection. But always about connection. Enthusiasm alone is no guarantee of a good conversation. Mutual moaning doesn't lead to real connection. Learn how to end conversations that you don't want to drag on. Especially over the phone. Wrap it up, say what you're going to do as a result of the convo (if applicable). Physically stand up. Collect positive states. Recall moments where you feel joy, trust and flow. Curate them so they can be summoned at a moment's notice to adjust your mood. Practice telling stories. Topics include something memorable you heard someone say, something you learnt that you found surprising, or something that made you smile. Ask yourself how you know when you're listening properly, and what gets in the way of you doing so. Such obstacles include: Wanting to make sense too quickly of what's being said. Wanting answers, and feeling uncomfortable with not knowing. A desire to lead the situation. Be clear with yourself own your own intentions for the conversations you're in. When dealing with negative people, be careful not to discount their negative statement. Accept that they are expressing their truth, and gently influence the conversation towards the positive. Levels of communication: Thing talk (objects) Action talk (personal actions) Head talk (ideas, knowledge) Heart talk (feelings) Soul talk (identity) Heart talk has to do with asking people what they care about, and them knowing you care about their answer. "I feel that..." isn't heart talk, since you're expressing an opinion. Voice principles to be understood: Speak at a steady pace. Open your mouth and articulate your consonants, especially the long sounds. Emphasise the most important words in each sentence. Vary your pitch. "Hey you can't walk away, I'm angry with you and that means we have a relationship." - David Whyte Assume success in difficult conversations. Assume positive (underlying) intent and the conversation should take on a positive direction. When dealing with confrontation: Acknowledge what you can, their right to their feelings and their personal set of values. And acknowledge to yourself that you can't know exactly what the other person is thinking or feeling or why they think and feel as they do. ____ Pointers from the re-read: Speech is civilisation itself. The word, even the most contradictory word, preserves contact - it is silence which isolates. In today's world there are many ways to learn, but it is often said that the best teaching is a conversation with an open channel between teacher and pupil. Gossip builds consensus without trust, and as such does not forge true connection. One of the great arts of conversation is to leave certain things unsaid at the most tempting moment. Matching energy is not the same as matching a mood. When you match an angry person whose energy is high and strong, match their energy and speak your first few words strongly too so they know you are tuning in to their mood. But do not speak angrily yourself. With movement, something to say will always come to you. Motion stimulates thought. When you remain open and say what you are really thinking and feeling, other people feel they have permission to act similarly, and then the conversation becomes a genuine and satisfying one. In conversation two fundamental assumptions support you. -You are okay just the way you are. You are enough. -Other people are to be trusted. You can think the best of other people and assume their best intentions. Picking up clues takes curiosity and awareness. Picking up such personal clues is a risk. But on the whole people drop the mention of something personal into a discussion only when they are prepared to talk about it; and if you go gently it may lead you to an interesting discussion and the chance to get to know the other person better. Interrupting by saying "Me too, wait till you hear about this..." may sound like an affirmation, but it's actually a coup. Judgment often occurs when a conversation doesn't feel equal. If one person makes it clear that they have a superior role, an essential element of conversation is lost. It doesn't matter whether I am your boss, your elder, more educated or more privileged than you, true listening takes place in the context of equality. Wit is one of the delights of head talk. Clever plays on words, jokes, banter and raillery all contribute to the to and fro of conversation, and often signal that people are comfortable enough to mock and tease each other. Without empathy, however, it can easily be misjudged, and often keeps people at a distance from each other. Being vulnerable may come with the risk of being misunderstood or scorned or laughed at, but isn't there a bigger risk of losing out on real connection and closeness with others through closing off your feelings? The great thing about conversation is that you can go step by step, testing the waters as you go. Seeing always requires us to see afresh as if for the first time. To practice being concise, ask yourself a question and allow yourself to ramble as much as you like. Then marshall your thoughts and give a shorter version of your initial answer. Repeat until desired length/eloquence is achieved. Naming what you perceive can often unblock a conversation that has got stuck. If one party is hiding a strong emotion, it's often useful to name what you notice without accusation. This can be especially useful if the other person is mocking, belittling, or being cynical or sarcastic.

    I found this book to be quite useful, introducing some new ideas to me about what a conversation is structurally composed of. I feel like a lot of this information is common sense though, but I still enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book; a very light read and, as I read in some of the reviews, it mentions basic points that most intellectual people already know (and follow) but to me that wasn’t a problem, I liked how simple the book was. Besides, I even noticed that I began practicing and filling the voids I have during conversations (also while giving a presentation) because of this book. My only problem was that some of the examples mentioned were very (VERYYY) simple to the extent of being very boring to me as a reader. I also would’ve liked it more if the writer had talked more about The Manipulation Game and gave another example that we would experience in our daily life and we would be influenced by. For instance, manipulative (fake) friends or manipulative co-workers rather than mentioning the sale-person example. But then again, I get the idea of the writer to mainly make the examples very simple and not very heavy to take which maybe I personally experienced them to be a little uninteresting.

    Good read! Starts with types of converser, listeners, conversations, and how to identify the games people play from the groove the conversation takes. Once I reach to the part of the games, I rushed the book to the end, since that particular part was the reason I got the book.

    Book is an easy to read combination of small tips and tricks to get the best out of your conversation and is best digested as something just to pick from. It provides numerous little bits and pieces about what to think about in a conversation but this I find can be too much to remember whilst in the heat of things. It does provide a key theme to what the author believes conversation is about - Connection.

A small amount of spelling errors throughout makes you wonder what the publisher was smoking the evening this was put together.

    A decent read. The information provided is, for the most part, common sense (even though many of us tend to forget that when communicating). I found some tips I plan to use in my daily life (the five type of talk being at the top). I will recommend this book to someone that wants to have a quick overview of the part of a conversation and a sort of introduction to ways of consciously improving their skills.

    A little light, but it made me think. My biggest takeaway from this book was the importance of authenticity to building connections - you can't connect with people if you're concealing your heart and emotions, or 'performing' a certain personality. Just be yourself. A little light, but it made me think.

    If you are terrible at talking to people, sure. This book is probably 4 or 5 stars for you. However, to me parts 1 and 2 are a lot of waffling, probably great for someone who needs a lot of encouragement to start a conversation. That is understandable.

I'm not giving it low stars because "I knew everything already" (which is an unfair verdict) but because parts 1 and 2 are not helpful advice. It feels more like..coddling, sometimes. Perhaps they would have been better as a backscript to a PowerPoint presentation on communication. Parts 3 and 4 still have some waffling but have a lot of good situational advice since it gives more accurate conversations, and example replies and counters, and that is why this is 3 stars.

    Outside of core friends and family, I find myself interacting less frequently with a lot of people in my life. More than ever, I'm aware of the importance of making the conversations I do have really count. This book is all about conversation - why it's important and how to be better at it. It's engaging and somewhat conversational in tone, with lots of little sidebars with examples of conversations or suggestions to practice. A lot of the advice is common sense, but it's an easy read.

It's worth the time for anyone hoping for some pointers on how to go beyond "what have you been up to lately?" and have more profound interactions with the project around them.

    A very quick read accompanied with exercises that you can complete alone. This would be beneficial to a speech expert in need of definitions and examples to use in workshops, as well as to someone who as very little knowledge of basic conversation. The techniques taught are limited to starting conversations with strangers, and maybe distant acquaintances.

    What can I say? Truly outstanding work. I was very inspired by the idea that small talk is a great tool to progress through trust building as my previous assumption was that small talk is one of thos things people hate about conversations. Also, the ideas behind some of the progressions through different type of talks were new to me. It feels that Judy is truly focused on advancing the science and art of connection skills with high fidelity of research and insights. Read it, worth every dime.

    I think it offers some interesting ideas which could be useful, however, to anyone struggling with social skills I would not recommend starting with this book, should probably read "how to win friends and influence people" first and then read this book as an extra thing. The writing is really friendly and there are a few interesting real-life stories.

    This is some interesting concept / framework offered in the book. However it is not a manual that gives u a step by step guide on how to make a conversation

    A lot of practical tips either on how to start a conversation or to handle awkward conversation. Easy to learn since it contains many relevant situational examples. Although it's quite abstract discussing philosophy of conversation and its purposes at the first chapter, this book -not just explains type of conversations -also digs deeper regarding the impact of conversations.

    It all comes down to forging connections with people by actively listening and responding to what they say. A simple concept, but for someone who finds it difficult to keep a conversation flowing, especially with people I'm not close to, the tips in this book are really helpful. It's not just about what people say, but their tone & body language too. It's a good book for anyone looking to improve their conversational skills.

    the book is a cool and creative companion to anyone craving effective conversation. I'll admit that it can be dry and repetitive in parts although highly recommend for anyone seeking to improve their communication. Apps provides clear and succicint examples and there's a nice mix between theory and practice! the book is a cool and creative companion to anyone craving effective conversation.
