In large doses it was a sleep-aid. Informative and practical advice. It wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. So easy is it for us to be guilty of “taboo” behaviors and after reading this, I definitely monitored what and how I engage with others.
I read this book three years ago. I have a hunch that the title appeared on a “Listscription” as I read quite a lot on the subject of workplace, social agta and mentoring. In our fast-paced, electronic society, the most basic social interaction–talking face-to-face–can be a challenge for civilixate the most educated and self-assured ind 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 way.
I’ll admit I’m a sucker for etiquette books with nice covers. With chapters such as “Rescue Conversations from Blunders”, this book is about as practical as it can get.
Two stars for a few almost-interesting tricks about how to approach conversations in a different-than-usual way, but that’s about it. Tips and advice, anthropological and anecdotal which could enliven most conversations in most circumstances with most people. Occasionally, words were pushed together, which was annoying. This book gives good examples of ideal and less than ideal conversation habits.
A good, refining read, although I wish a second edition would be written with an expansion of internet and electronic conversational etiquette, which the authors only touched upon lightly. Beyond that, this book presents valuable tips for conversation as well as new approaches to situations you may yet to have mastered.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia.
But to each’s own. It all sounds too sterile and lackluster for my taste. An informative and mostly helpful primer on how to initiate, read, and improve one’s conversations.
What it actually is is a manners guide thinly disguised as a book about conversation, and not a particularly good one at that. Most of the book is common sense, but it was a good refresher and I picked up some tricks I’ll try. On the other hand, this obvious common-sense manual of humorless idiocy will not receive the same reverence.

Terrific book, easy and clear to read, not overly critical or patronizing. The best way to read this is possibly to pick a section and afta on applying for a few weeks to make it a part of your conversational style. If not, they are probably not going to read the book anyway. Arfa was hoping to become less awkward myself, but I guess that would take a miracle, not a book!
Oct 06, Bookworm rated it liked it Recommends it for: Don’t start a conversation with, “you’ve put ocnversatiei some weight,” don’t tell a mother that her newborn looks like E. Feb 26, Jenn “JR” rated it it was amazing Shelves: I found it while cleaning house last month.
Much of the advice given is, for most of us, common sense.
So, I thought I’d mention it here – that even well over a year after having read this book, I’ve been able to apply its insights in my everyday life. And, while the information is valuable and the narration excellent, it is hard to take in large doses. Feb 19, Amy rated it really liked it. It is hard to go back and forth in an audiobook which I think is an issue, in general, with non-fiction in this format.
But if you go into this book looking for something more in-depth you A straightforward guide for the basics in terms of etiquette for conversation. Xivilizate 30, Cat rated it liked it.

The BEST part is the last chapter on convsrsatiei to talk to children a horribly underdeveloped skill in our world of worldsthe elderly, and people who have dementia or Alzheimer’s, and even the comatose literally, not figuratively. Refresh and try again. A vast majority of it I already knew, so it was good to reinforce this etiquette.
I enjoyed reading it; it was a quick read.
