Do you hate making small talk?
Do you wish you could walk up to anyone, anywhere, anytime, and just start talking to them?
Well, it isn't difficult.… In this book I detail everything I've used to overcome my fear and inability of making small talk so that you can, too. You can pick up this book, listen to it, and have an actionable step-by-step structure to follow so you can master small talk.
Everything in this book has been boiled down to its simplest form and then molded into actionable steps. This means you don't need to spend countless hours researching, reading, and testing techniques; I did all that for you.
As you work through the book you will learn the following:

Small talk can be used to do any of the following, and much more:

Effortless Small Talk: Learn How to Talk to Anyone

Would you consider the audio edition of Effortless Small Talk to be better than the print version?

I much prefer the audio book version over print because of my busy on the go lifestyle and learning style.

Which character – as performed by Nathan Dunford – was your favorite?

This story was told in first person, so there weren't any characters aside from the author point of view. I liked the performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I liked the personal experiences the author shared about how overcoming shyness and moving toward engaging conversation through small talk made a big impact professionally. It's interesting how much of a difference a little small talk can make in making friends and networking professionally. Author provides great "how to" examples to put in practice.

Any additional comments?

Overall it was a good listen. Simple and easy to understand.

Nothing new here

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book was so obvious. Some out-of-the-ordinary suggestions would be helpful, but this book makes suggestions like "Talk about the weather". What a snooze

What was most disappointing about Andy Arnott’s story?

I learned nothing

Any additional comments?

This book is a lazy exploration into an interesting and puzzling topic. It adds nothing you haven't heard 100 times before. I do not recommend it.
