4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful book, 11 Dec 2012
This review is from: Conversation Lubricants - Easy Ways to Start and Keep a Great Conversation Flowing (Kindle Edition)
I got this book for my niece, who is very shy. She's also young and she responds well to direct and straight talk.
I read the book before I gave it to her and found it really practical and useful. The author doesn't write in convolute ways, but he conveys the message in a clear, direct manner. Some of the stuff mentioned in the book may appear obvious, but we shouldn't assume it's obvious for everyone.

As we grow up we tend to forget how difficult it was to talk to strangers when, as teenagers, we'd get to a party, or even when we had to make conversation with our parents' friends, who had nothing in common with us, and so on. We may not have a problem now, but perhaps we had it then.

Even in our adult life, we can get stuck. We may be extrovert and friendly, but what do you do if the other person is not responding? or if the topic of conversation is highly controversial? I found myself in these situations in the past, and I had no idea how to go about it. These issues, and many more, are covered in this book, so I definitely will be treasuring some of the tips I found in there.
