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.
