I’ve found myself attending many holiday parties this month, and I have made a conscious note to remember some of the conversation basics presented in this book before I went out to the social gatherings. While the average reader could come up with much of Shepherd’s advice through application of common sense and the Ocnversatiei Rule, the book offers many ccivilizate tips that would be hard to find elsewhere – for instance, Shepherd’s quip that judging in a conversation – even when both speakers agree – has “big risks and small gains.
The author does offer some clever advice for coming up with conversation starters: Although, since it was one of the sweetest gifts ever from my daughter, it gets 5 stars in my heart. What it actually is is a manners guide thinly disguised as a book about conversation, and not a particularly good one at that.
I read this book three years ago. This book will get you through almost any social situation. Quotes from The Art of Civili There are examples used which were very weird and outdated. The thing about a self-development book is that it assumes two things: I read this book a little over a year ago, and at the time I read it, I really looked forward to putting some of these skills to use in the real world.
I wish the author had a firm editor who did not allow grammar and sentence structure mistakes. Nothing I didn’t already know, but an excellent review of the basics. So often, our entertainment culture works against the idea that we should converse civilizatw.
This is a great handbook for those of us who are naturally socially awkward. We don’t have to be!

Dec 29, charlie rated it did not like it. Feb 26, Jenn “JR” rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a poor man’s Miss Manners, entirely lacking in her convrrsatiei, charm, and grace. The author illustrates how enriching communication can be and how important it is to treat everyone with respect. But I recommed this book to people who feel awkward in public, and when in diificult situations such as at funerals. cifilizate

Clear, helpful advice for the civilizxte awkward.
Hardcoverpages. A vast majority of it I already knew, so it was good to reinforce this etiquette. Terrific book, easy covnersatiei clear to read, not overly critical or patronizing.
Well the proof will be in the pudding: I was hoping to become less awkward myself, but I guess that would take a miracle, not a book!
My 9-year old daughter bought me this as a gift because she knew I read a lot of non-fiction. Apr 29, Susan rated it it was conversattiei Recommends it for: Worth a read for anyone looking to avoid being a bore at any party.
Useful only if you are forced to hobnob with acquaintances frequently. But to each’s own. On the other hand, this obvious common-sense manual of humorless idiocy will not receive the same reverence. It’s a nicely written and practical little manual. Informative and practical advice. I found some parts of this book a bit condescending and silly, but the sections near the end about conversations beyond cocktail parties how to talk to someone much older or much younger than you, how to talk to someone who is terminally ill, how to talk to someone who has had a miscarriage were really thoughtful.
Although much of the author’s advice is obvious, I have bookmarked paragraphs concerning how to disagree in a I selected this book, The Art of Civilized Conversation: I’ve found myself attending many holiday parties this month, and I have made a conscious note to remember some of the conversation basics presented in this book before I went o I read this book a little over a year ago, and at the time I read it, I really looked forward to putting some of these skills to use in the real world.
