Did not enjoy

What would have made Small Talk Skills better?

This book will drive you crazy while listening, I wish I could stand to listen to it again to count how many times "he or she", "him or her", "him or herself" and "hence" was used. Do not waste your time or money.

What was most disappointing about Jacob Andrews’s story?

It was not useful to me at all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Dave Wright’s performances?

The narrator was "ok" but he story/book was horrible.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Big rumble about Smalltalk

Very disappointing when the title promises certain topic, but the content goes over anything and everything except that one topic. When the book is so short, you would expect the author to go right to the point, but it did not.

This short book serves to be a good one for absolute beginners in communications. It goes over personal distance, eye contact, ,… nothing beyond the common sense. Only in the last 2 chapters it starts to "touch" on small talk. Nothing Profound.
