Publisher's Summary

Good conversation is at the heart of networking, meetings, interviews, negotiations and raising your profile. It can ease your way in work, enabling you to build alliances, create strong relationships with staff, bosses and clients, succeed at interviews, motivate and inspire. But conversation is something most of us were never taught! We learn to speak as babies, but how conversation actually works is something most of us pick up only haphazardly, and many have yet to learn. Why is it some of us are stuck for words, but others blabber or can’t stop? What is it that some people have naturally which enables them to converse comfortably and easily, to engage people and build better relationships? The Art of Conversation will show you step by step how to converse skillfully and enjoyably with other people, at home, at work, on the phone and in the street - even if you’re daunted now, discover the difference good conversation can make in every aspect of your life.

What the Critics Say

"Apps leaves readers with the necessary confidence – and perhaps a little swagger - to become a venerable master of conversation." (Elite Business, June 2014)

a must read

having an intellectual understanding of a concept is step towards mastering it. this book provides fundamental principles and situations which have helped me become more aware of what we witness happening everyday but don't recognize. also there are several helpful exercises and suggestions to help practice what you've learned therefore you can make steps towards internalizing the principles. after all it is inefficient to strive towards improvement when unaware of what needs to be improved. the only thing more I can recommend you do with this book is bring your own personal reasons for being motivated to learn and you'll gain a lot from this book.
