Short Crispy and perfect narration

The content is great with nice narration and clear pitch. Though the content is pulled from author's previous work it is assembled properly.

It talks about small talks.

It’s like a ted talk rather than a book. It’s good listen for once on 2x.

It's only 30 minutes, and it's free.

This book is like one segment of How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie... but it's still worth a listen because Repetition builds muscle.
And seriously... It'll only take up 15m of your time on 2x. Love ya Chris, keep prospering brother.

Simple but Valuable Advice!

I throughly enjoyed this book and took keynotes I know I’ll be using soon. I definitely recommend this book whether you’re looking on how to speak with one or one thousand individuals.

The title should read

"How to be an annoying assh0le"

If you take the advice given in this "book" your going to be a Billy no mates.

I didn't know how a conversation worked before i heard this. I do now.
Highly recommend if you struggle in social situations as this helps a lot and basically tells you exactly how to talk to strangers in a really simple way to understand :)

Good Simple Tips

Quick and easy listen with a few simple tips on chatting to people. Nothing earth shattering and even for me who struggles with speaking to new people and anxiety etc, it is mostly common sense. But examples are given and some things are shone in a new light.

Good quick listen but don't expect a life changing experience.

How to have superficial boring conversations

This book should be called how to have boring conversations without emotion. He even advises against asking questions about the other person's interests that you don't have any experience of! This guy must just go round having the same conversations over and over again. What an ego

Seriously, how have people like this guy become wealthy or successful just by stating the blindingly obvious? Full of wild claims about your ultimate dreams and goals being possible if you just learn these secret techniques! Utter dross. Don’t waste your time.

Boring and predictable

I didn’t rate this recording or learn anything new from it. The suggested script questions, such as ‘What do you do for a living?’ are networking cliches of the worst kind. Nothing original or innovative here.

Super basic stuff... Waste of time

This audio book has a very promising title, but the content is super basic. If you're into the self improvement literature this will be a waste of time
