Summary
In our fast-paced, electronic society, the most basic social interaction-talking face-to-face-has become a challenge for even the most educated and self-assured individuals. And yet making conversation is a highly practical skill: those who do it well shine at networking parties, interviews, and business lunches. Good conversation also opens doors to a happier love life, warmer friendships, and more rewarding time with family. For those intimidated by the complexity of personal interaction, or those simply looking to polish their speaking skills, "The Art of Civilized Conversation is a powerful guide to communicating in an endearing-and noteworthy-way. In its pages, author Margaret Shepherd offers opening lines, graceful apologies, thoughtful questions, and, ultimately, the confidence to take conversations beyond hello. From the basics-such as first impressions, appropriate subject matter, and making graceful exits-to finding the right words for difficult situations, to an insightful discussion about body language, Shepherd uses her skilled eye and humorous anecdotes to teach readers how to turn a plain conversation into an engaging encounter. Filled with common sense, and fresh insight," The Art of Civilized Conversation is the perfect handbook not only for what to say but for how to say it with style
