Improve Your Conversations teaches you how to use the ingenious framework from improv comedy and apply it directly to your everyday social interactions and conversations...and can't we learn something from the greatest improv comedians in the world, like Tina Fey and Will Ferrell? Improv comedy and memorable conversations have almost everything in common, from their premise to what makes them great to their end goals.

Not many takeaways if you're already familiar with improv' techniques. Otherwise it is informative. I'm not sure if the drills given are really applicable in real life.

Have you ever...Invested time in something that, with hindsight, just wasn't worth it? Overpayed in an Ebay auction? Continued doing something you knew was bad for you? Sold stocks too late, or too early? Taken credit for success, but blamed failure on external circumstances? Backed the wrong horse? These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day-to-day thinking.

A very good summary of the different technics and patterns is used by creative people through the time. The voice of the narrator is dynamic and makes it to follow. The charters are short and just contain the necessary information.
Very good reference book. Listen, get inspired and start creating.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

The book gives you a extensive range of techniques to work on your self development and to become a better person in general.
I really liked the chapters on public speaking as they contain a lot of practical advice. On the contrary, I found the chapters on sales techniques a little superficial and lacking of real life example.
I'm just impressed considering how old are those books and how well they still apply to today's problems. A must read for sure
