Colin divided his book into twelve chapters from whose names, especially subheadings a lot of things can be concluded – such as Small Talk (Don’t pooh-pooh it. Tae-kwon-DO-IT), Parties (Make love to your nightmare) or Family (Harness your nuclear power).
The book is decorated with several black and white illustrations made in the form of caricature that in a funny way in the form of image show what the author writes about.
Main objection to book or its characteristic, depending on the angle from which you look, is the fact that the book is somehow written from a male perspective that can be clearly read though all of its duration; therefore I am of the opinion that the female part of the audience might not in same way found it useful, and probably will not like it as much as will be the case with men.
Also, for some of the advices found inside reader won’t be entirely clear whether the author is joking or is serious because these advices are a bit silly and I'm not sure whether using them you would achieve results the author or yourself expect.
However, in overall terms, I would say that ‘What to Talk About’ is the type of book you will see as optional purchase at the airport or bus station, to read during travel helping you to time to pass quicker, several times have a good laugh and maybe remember some advices to use it afterwards.
Viewed in unpretentious way Chris Colin’s book can certainly be recommended.
