A British journalist uses Old World values, razor-sharp social skills, and an endless supply of fascinating stories to make the “neglected pleasure” of conversation sound like fun. Though her presentation is full of rules and her British accent sounds somewhat formal, her breezy and optimistic tone will help most listeners hear her advice as an opportunity to connect with people in a skillful, satisfying way. She’s astute in the way she breaks down various conversational challenges such as talking with bores, bullies, and people who are egotistical, ill-at-ease, insulting, or in the middle of difficult circumstances. This is an indispensable, highly nuanced resource for anyone who wants more skills and confidence when interacting with others. T.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
