There are 3 simple questions to determine whether you should listen this book.
Does the thought of "small talk" make you cringe? Do you wish you were more magnetic and charismatic? Do you want to learn how to instantly turn surface interactions into lasting and deep connections?
If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, you need this book immediately!
We’ve all heard that life is about who you know… but that’s only half the picture.
Chatter will show you step by step how to become the person who can build intimate rapport with anyone they meet, expertly work a room, win instant friends, and project a winning image that people will flock to.
This isn’t a book of one-liner conversation topics and generic "you can do it" tips that other books would have you believe will make you successful. Through my 20 Chatter principles, you will learn to master skills that will make you shine in everyday interactions, such as:
… as well as advanced communication skills and techniques that will change your life:

Hmm, what would make chatter better? Good question. I think this book goes for 90 minutes; of this I think there are about 10 minutes worth listening to. The rest is an instruction to be both as embarrassment and a little offensive. If this is what it takes to "talk to anyone" I'll keep quiet thanks.
Possibly, he didn't write the content
The first few minutes were good and made me want to listen further in the hope I would get some benefit from the rest
This book is an easy read (or in this case listen). It really shows how to build rapport and how to talk to anyone, whether you have anything in common or not. It shows you how to work with your strengths and how to bulletproof your verbal and non verbal communication skills. Listened to this book 3 times now and will definitely come back to it in the near future. I am now moving on to other books written by Patrick King.
It really delivers what it says.
The sample doesn't given the book any credit. The sample is boring. The sample is only the introduction. The rest of the book is a bunch of useful tips anybody can use in every day life.
Going to listen to it again for sure!
"The author gives types to sound like a douche bag"
Did a frat bro write this book? I am a young business professional who has a good sense of humor but the tips in this book are either inappropriate or tips on how to small talk at a boys night out or a frat house. This is stupid. Besides basic common knowledge this book will teach you how to be "that guy" (aka the jerk). Don't waste your time reading
"This is not a good book."
While this was mildly entertaining, many of the recommendations are just flat out terrible advice!
"skew slightly inappropriate... seriously?"
skew slightly inappropriate... seriously? it ruined the book.. your friend to ask about the weather in your supposed to ask him how hot it is in his pants after a date.
"Worth a read"
Overall useful but his hip, dating bias colors the recommendations. I would have found it more useful if the examples had a bit more refinement (especially content about inappropriate conversation).
That said, there are many good nuggets to consider.
"common sense stuff"
this book just repeats common sense knowledge and stories of common sense issues no worth the time to read unless uou really really have no social skills.
The information wasn't necessarily new or earth shattering but it was nice to hear it all organized and concise. For the price and the time invested it was worth listening to.
Can help many struggling to improve and trying to reinvent themselves. Always worth a shot.
"Good book if you apply these principles."
Good . Really.. Strongly recommend to everybody. Good for people who wants to develop social skills
I didn't particularly enjoy this topic or the book it was important for me to read it and get the information. It's a short book with valuable insights.
"Short and to the point"
Good tips in this listen. Nothing but solid self-help here, but worth a quick listen.
Comprehensive and straight to the point.
Jam packed with quality information.
Smooth tone, engaging and expressive voice.
"Some good advises, but quite simple"
Although at the beginning he said this book will not include things that you can find on the Internet blogs, some advises are very basic and more or less, a common sense. However, it got some good advises in there. Most importantly, this book is relevant and doesn't go on and on like some self-help books. The given examples and stories also quite good.
"Good but a bit short"
Overall quite a good listen, however it was rather short ideally I would have preferred something a bit more comprehensive
