Book Review - What to Talk About: On a Plane, at a Cocktail Party, in a Tiny Elevator with Your Boss's Boss
About the Book
Homo sapiens have been speaking for hundreds of years—and yet basic communication still stymies us. We freeze up in elevators, on dates, at parties, under Dumpsters. We stagger through our exchanges merely hoping not to crash, never considering that we might soar. We go home sweaty and eat a birthday cake in the shower.
But no more. With What to Talk About you'll learn to speak—fluently, intelligently, charmingly—to family, friends, coworkers, lovers, future lovers, horse trainers, children, even yourself. This hilarious manual, written by two award-winning authors and illustrated by legendary cartoonist Tony Millionaire, is tailor-made for anyone who might one day attend a dinner party, start a job, celebrate a birthday, graduate from school, date a human, or otherwise use words.
What to Talk About is not rocket science, but it is a lot like brain surgery, in the sense that is terrifying, risky—and could change you forever.
My Take on the Book
Have you ever walked into a room, met people and completely been at a loss for words? Whether it is in a room, an elevator, a lobby or anywhere else, this book gives you a ton of starters that you can use in any of these situations and more. The book also gives you a ton of ideas on how to best approach the situations and the people in those situations. The book was easy to read and simple to implement, but the book also was an amazing resource that you can take anywhere you go to give you a ton of tools to be able to help you to be more confident and comfortable in practically any situation.
