Narrator is irritating

Interesting but not really mind blowing. One thing I hated is the narrators voice and the way he speaks, it is so irritating, it's like he's trying to sound so cool and laid back but it was just distracting.

What would have made Conversation Tactics better?

I admit there were some good points made, but "Interrupting as a conversation tactic" was ridiculous. Respect the other's person thought process over endearing yourself, selfishly, to them by interrupting to agree. :D :D :D Seriously had me LOL

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting aspect was that someone with such a shallow approach to conversation would feel so strongly impelled to share it as "the" right approach.

How did the narrator detract from the book?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Conversation Tactics?
