I read one review that sounded like, "if you've been alive for a few years you won't need this book". Something about being raised with wolves, etc. Even if you're good with people this book is a good refresher. Before retiring I spent my working life dealing with people and was very successful in this regard, even with the most difficult and demanding, but I still enjoyed the book. It's a short and easy read. But, beware of the part where the author suggests downloading his free audio. It's just a come-on to purchase. His web site address takes you to a page where you must enter your email address to gain access to the download, but then you're doused with all kinds of information designed to reach into your wallet. I didn't download the "free" audio.

If you are a shy person who finds it difficult to communicate with new people then this book will be helpful. Peter Murphy presents conversation starters, explains body language and teaches you what to ask people when you first meet. This book contains simple strategies for entertaining conversations. With this book anyone should be able to survive a party or talk to strangers on a plane. I personally find that listening to people talk about their life is a good way to make people like you. Being a shy person by nature I found some of this book to be very useful. If you are an introvert I'd also recommend you read: The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World.

It seems quite clear many reviewers have criticized this book without having actually read it - which is part of the price of giving a book away for free.

Nevertheless, although much of this book is very basic, there are a few gems that make the price of free and the 20 minutes it took to read well worth it.

There is a list of power questions that serve as great fodder for elevating a conversation, and thus strengthening the connection available to you. Some of these questions may seem obvious, but it's surprisingly helpful to have them readily available as opposed to having to dig for them in your working memory.

For example:

> What has been the most life-changing experience you've ever had?
> What is the most spontaneous thing you've ever done?
> Who's had the biggest influence on your life?
> What dream would you most like to make a reality?

If a conversation is lagging or you want to take an otherwise decent conversation to the next level - whip these questions out. I highly recommend it. It works.

This 'book' reads like a Powerpoint presentation. There's no depth to it, no substance, just headings and a few sentences to make the headings look expanded upon. They're not. I'm guessing it took the author about an hour to put together - half that if he used his actual Powerpoint slides. It's a waste of time, offers nothing of value, and shouldn't be offered on Amazon, even if it is free.

If this is a topic that interests you, try Leil Lowndes's book "How to Talk to Anyone: 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships." It's a meaty book that actualy addresses the questions this book only pretends to address.

This book doesn't actually say anything other than the generic "stop thinking this" or "don't do this, rather, do this" or "present your positive self". Okay, so how do I do that? An example would be lovely.

Some of the information, experts disagree with. For instance: swinging legs is often considered a display of child like joy; rarely anger. Rolling the foot on the ball of the ankle is a form of gravity defying behavior, and will more often than not, signify happiness. And tapping of the foot can mean anything from "I'm nervous and trying to calm myself down" to "I'm bored" to "I've got a lot of a stimulant in me" to "I'm angry". Things need to be viewed in context, not "this means that".

I was only reading this over looking for a good book on the subject for a friend of mine. I honestly cannot recommend something so lacking in substance and so generic it's misleading at times. The author should strongly consider expanding on the material, and then republishing.

Overall I liked and enjoyed this short book. While I'm a bullet-point kind of reader, pretty much everything here was numbered with the breifest of descriptions. All good stuff, some really good points in fact, but I was left wishing he could have elaborated on them more than a few sentences for each point. Perhaps even some example conversations.

It is very helpful because I am that kind of person who is always too shy to talk to strangers.This book did give me some useful advice,at least I know my own happiness is nothing to do with others' response.I got this book free on my kindle.

Really quite astonishingly bad. A completely generic and simplistic approach that offers nothing into genuine skills required for good conversation, rather, a useless list of empty one-liners!
