A book onbody language rather than talking.,
This review is from: How to Talk to Anyone: 92 Little Tricks For Big Success In Relationships (Paperback)
I bought this book hoping to discover some useful small talk techniques. How to draw things from other people that you can use to create conversation. This isn't covered in this book. This is a book almost exclusively about body language, not talking.
The insights aren't especially new or useful either - full of stuff like "smile when you first meet people".
The best thing about this book is that it is broken down into specific techniques with an illustrative anecdote which makes for easy reading.
The worst thing is that it is written in that sickly insincere "Oh my God, already" American style.
