If you really need help with the basics
This book is very basic. I was looking for information on how to "level-up" significantly, since I consider myself to have good conversation skills already. If you are really bad at conversation and need clear guidance, this this book could help. If you are already a decent conversationalist, then this may be too basic for you.

What would have made Improve Your Conversations: Think on Your Feet, Witty Banter, and Always Know What to Say with Improv Comedy Techniques better?
How to improve your conversations: don't have a monotone voice like this narrator.
Would you be willing to try another book from Patrick King? Why or why not?
If it isn't narrated by the same person, possibly.
How could the performance have been better?
A narrator with a voice that changes tone every once in a while would be nice. I prefer not to fall asleep at the wheel when i'm listening to this on my daily commute. I couldn't even get through the first 2 chapters.
What character would you cut from Improve Your Conversations: Think on Your Feet, Witty Banter, and Always Know What to Say with Improv Comedy Techniques?
Any additional comments?

Good information to get you started.
I would have preferred a few more examples. However I found the content helpful and interesting to listen to.
