it was ok
Recommended for: Someone who needs to start at square 0, the rare soul endowed with no common sense.

This book further cements my bias to rarely pick up a book without looking at reviews first. The table of contents looked promising--How to Deal with Conversation Predicaments, How to Keep Any Conversation Going, How to Graciously Stop A Conversation, etc... but this book was all fluff. Sure, there were some decent ideas, but I'm a pretty awkward guy and 90% of the material was completely obvious or fluff--nothing truly helpful (in fact, some things I would say were downright counterproductive: some of the things the author suggested I *tried* to visualize when or how I would say such a thing without disastrous results... many times I could think of no way out. The author was out of touch).
