Publisher's Summary

Do you want to talk to anyone, in any situation, with great ease? Do you want to have great success in relationships through verbal communication? Then you need this audiobook!

Effective communication is at the heart of all rewarding human relationships. The ability to both express oneself and to understand what someone is expressing to you is the foundation of making any relationship more fulfilling. Conversation is what separates us from all other species. It’s our ability to exchange ideas, views, and feelings with one another through the magic of spoken language.

But, maybe, you’ve had that moment, at a dinner party or even a crucial job interview, when your mind went blank. Or, maybe, you often say things you regret to those closest to you. Or, perhaps, you have an ongoing fear of talking with others. Or, you’re the painfully shy type. If any of these are true for you, then Improve Your Conversations will help you.

Good conversation has a flow like life itself. And just like life, conversation is full of ups and downs, good times and bad times, and achievements and setbacks. It’s our belief that the art and science of good conversation involves ongoing acknowledgment of this flow as it occurs. Life is conversation, and conversation is life.

You will learn:

  • The basic skills that will let you take your conversation to the next level
  • Ways how these skills are useful in a wide variety of settings: in the workplace, at home, with close friends, or total strangers
  • Ways how these skills will step up your game in those most dreaded arenas: public speaking and telephone conversation even if you are shy, not a good speaker, and/or always have difficulty talking to others

Scroll to the top of the page, select the "buy now" button, and start improving your conversations in love, life, work - anywhere!

The fundamental of (informal) communication

In other words, if you're a nerd, a techie, someone too analytical, someone too business-minded, someone too serious etc, that you just don't know what to talk about except work and formal stuff, then get this book.

I was exactly the type of person that I described above. This book has changed my outlook and how I interact with friends completely.

Perfect book for an Introvert

I don't fear conversation, but often felt like I hit a dead end after "Hi, how are you". This book allows me to take my conversations to more engaging levels and form relationships faster.

Modern Dale Carnegie

Improve Your Conversations is HANDS DOWN the best book on the matter I have seen in giving you actual tips, exercises, examples, and a great approach for thinking about conversation and breaking it down. I'm obviously a fan. The author breaks conversation down into tiny pieces and shows you exactly what you are probably doing wrong and how to improve it with what to say. Really useful, and due for a re-read this weekend.

This wasn't a good fit for me. But that's just my.

just okay. I had to change the speed to 1.25x, but it made a big difference in being able to finish listening to it

Simple yet profound

Need I say more. I have enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have meaningful conversations. I was always told going into a conversation to think of a couple things you want to ask other person; however, After listening this book and implementing it into my life that’s far from the truth. Let the conversation flow, let it flow, be present. Great book.

Two thumbs up

Would highly recommend the book to anyone that wants to gain better conversation skills. That's what the book promises and it definitely delivers, from the first chapter and how it all ties together with improv comedy.

just listen it. GREAT

This is, quite simply, probably the best book about social interaction i've ever listen. it literally transformed my method of conversation overnight, and clearly articulates both basic techniques and detailed exercises to make you a better conversationalist. Highly recommended for shy people, introverts, or anyone struggling with having quality and meaningful conversations.

Favorite Book

LOVED the book! I love standup comedy so I guess I was just drawn to this aspect, and it blew me away with how many similarities there are between conversation and... really anything that you need to prepare for and work together towards! Good insight on the shared goals and collaboration aspect that we never think about. We think conversation is about us and we talk about us and we just want to say our thoughts.

Very basic

This book is ok but covers the basics of communication which most people will already know, those of you looking for a more complex book should look elsewhere

Extraordinary book

This is an awesome book for beginning on conversation.I'm extremely happy to get this book since I was searching for precisely this kind of book. I had a decent perused. Experiences are useful and can truly make individuals change their social way of life. This book shows us how to be consistent with ourselves and how to show our actual character with the individuals we met each day I especially revered the way wherein the book passes on express locales to assist make with restraining and after each segment the author reviews the essential take-influences. If all else fails, HIGHLY proposed if you have issues with resilience..

Good guide to the basics

I definitely recommended this book for those lacking social skills. A lot in this book might seem overly basic to people. However, if you feel like you struggle with the basics of social interactions, as many of us do, this book is a great guide to conversation

Great insight

Great insight into what most of us never consider, conversation. The tips and exercises are very useful. I thought the examples helped a lot. I see now what a blasé conversationalist I am with strangers and will soon be changing that!

just Wow!

I am basically a bit of a shy person, sort of the observant type than a talker. I picked up a lot of techniques to try on my future conversations with friends. It had some good stuff, and some good exercises to practice with. I am very much happy to listen this book.
