I picked up the book because it was mentioned in Investors Business Daily and sounded useful to improving my conversational skills.
The book is clearly written, makes some very good points and does hit most or all of the "how to" for small talk. The problem is that I think everyone knows this and it adds little or no value to meeting and talking to anyone. My reason for that is I want to have conversation not just small talk, and I think that meeting someone and developing a meaningful relationship of any kind requires more than what was presented here.

Years ago I read a book that I say is the gold standard for conversations, small talk, meeting people, and all of life's relationships. That book is "How To Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. If you want to master conversation or meeting people, start with Dale Carnegie's book.

Marvin Brown has managed to create a seminal work on a subject matter that affects most people on a daily basis. He nailed it without being dry and boring. This is not motivational self help nonsense. The author provides easy to use tools that will help anyone become more comfortable in any social situation. I read the book in two sittings and have already begun implementing the strategies. It's been a liberating experience!

I'm been in sales for 20 years, but this little book had some great ideas I never thought of and some approaches I will be using in the future. Well written and worthwhile - I think I'll read it again

As someone who is in the "people" business, I consider myself a pro at talking to clients, listening to their needs, and picking up on unspoken messages. So when I read Marvin Brown's book, I figured it wouldn't have that much to teach me. I was wrong! He breaks the conversation down into its components--starting a conversation, keeping it going (and interesting), using body language, listening, and exiting gracefully. There were many fresh tips and strategies for every type of situation, from parties to first meetings, workplace relationships to sales. I never thought about how important small talk is in my business, and it's one of the areas where I realized I could use more practice. Thanks, Marvin Brown! This book is a winner.

THE BOOK BY MARVIN BROWN BOOK ENTITLED "HOW TO MEET AND TALK TO ANYONE, ANYWHERE...ANYTIME..." IS THE TOP WORD OF THE BUNCH IN THE EXPRESSION: "GOOD - BETTER - BEST". IT IS INDEED THE "BEST" GUIDE FOR ANYONE NOT ONLY TO IMPROVE HIS SKILLS TO MEET AND TALK TO PEOPLE BUT IT IS UNSURPASSED AS AN ORGANIZED PLAN TO INITIATE AND MASTER THE EXPERTISE OF ESTABLISHING EFFICIENT AND SUCCESSFUL INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. PURCHASE THIS BOOK!

After reading this wonderful book it is now impossible for me to meet anyone or have a conversation without remembering Marvin Brown's words of wisdom. My interaction with people has become much more productive and satisfying. The book is written with insight and intelligence and I highly recommend it to everyone whether or not you think you need it.

Even though I am very talkative person, I still do have some communication problems. I usually wait for people to come and meet me instead of going and introducing myself. It is because of I did not know how to present myself or what kind of questions to ask to strangers. There is always a doubt in my mind when entering a new environment. After reading Marvin Brown`s book, I actually cleaned my doubts, and now I know the proper way of presenting myself and building new relationships at almost anywhere with anyone.

Brown indicates every single step in the conversations from how to start to how to end. He gives useful tricks such as how to take or give criticism and compliments, and how to use the body language. He basically teaches the most important communications tools for any age. Also the book is well organized and the language is smooth. When I was reading, I also had fun with his practices. I recommend this book for everyone. We all have trouble in conversations somehow. This is a great guideline to keep for lifetime.

With everyone glued to their ipads and other electronic devices these days, I can't remember the last time a stranger made any attempt at conversation with me! So I hope all of those people will read and benefit from the fine tips offered by Martin Brown throughout this entertaining "How to..." book. And Brown points out that knowing what to say or how to start a conversation isn't the only conversational skill to hone, as listening, making eye contact, entending your hand for a firm handshake are all part of those wonderful well-mannered business skills many of us practiced before the computer age made people act very boorish and self-absorbed by paying attention to the gizmos in their hands rather than the human being standing right next to them!
