Critic Reviews

"A gifted conversationalist." (The New Yorker)
"This is a program that delivers: It's short, read by a likable and upbeat author, and well illustrated with vignettes of conversational success. The sophisticated principles show solid thinking, yet they're delivered with the geniality of your favorite meteorologist. Easy-to-follow lessons and Gabor's positive delivery make this an empowering listening experience." (AudioFile)
