We don’t come from families who are talented in this area! Civilizste learned some things I do well already and others I can work on. So many conversations came to mind while reading this, mainly others who were attentive to me or where I made a solid connection. So often, our entertainment culture works against the idea that we should converse civilly.

When the banter gets too sassy in my house, my scold is usually something like, “Hey, we don’t talk to one another like TV and movies; families can have fun, but we have to remember we love each other. Now I’ll use it as a reference. I especially appreciated help on talking with those who are ill or bereaved and with people of different ages.
Sep 03, Susan rated it liked it Shelves: With chapters such as “Rescue Conversations from Blunders”, this book is about as practical as it can converswtiei. Jul 08, L. I read this book three years ago. I concersatiei it while cleaning house last month. I read it again quickly.
This book is very good at providing basics in polite conversation. I do not agree with everything it advises, but the generalities are solid.
I wish the author had a firm editor who did not allow grammar and sentence structure mistakes. That always distracts me from the subject. But I recommed this book to people congersatiei feel awkward in public, and when in diificult situations such as at funerals.
This book will get you through almost any social situation. I was hoping to become less awkward myself, but I guess that would take a miracle, not a book! Jan 31, Tess rated it liked it Shelves: Good, clear, and correct. Makes you think about things in more detail and consider the comfort of others, which, if you’re as typically selfish as I am, is fantastic. It’s more of a reference book than a good read, though.
It put me to sleep a few times. Dec 12, Roxanne rated it liked it. 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. As someone who isn’t necessarily a natural at the art of conversation, I found this book to be full of helpful tools to facilitate basic social interactions and then some.

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.
So, I thought I’d mention it here – that even well over a year after having read this civilisate, I’ve been able to apply vonversatiei insights in my everyday life. This is a great handbook for those of us who are naturally socially awkward. We don’t have to be! This book shows you how to feel confident and not like you want to shrink into a corner.

My 9-year old daughter bought me this as a gift because she knew I read a lot of non-fiction.
On the other hand, this obvious common-sense manual of humorless idiocy will not receive the same reverence. Although, since it was one of the sweetest gifts ever from my daughter, it gets 5 stars in my heart.

Dec 12, Charity rated it really liked it. This book gives good examples of ideal and less than ideal conversation habits. The author illustrates how enriching communication can be and how important it is to treat everyone with respect. Although I am sure my conversation skills will not change overnight, I now have a good foundation to start from.
While the book offers some great tips for polishing up your formal conversations, the author insists that all conversations, even between friends, be almost completely devoid of strong opinions.
Covilizate all sounds too sterile and lackluster for my taste. Useful only if you are forced to hobnob with acquaintances frequently. Oct 07, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: Clear, helpful advice for the conversationally awkward. Feb 16, Stephanie rated it liked it Shelves: One of my resolutions this year was to be better at conversation: Listen more, swear less, ask questions, etc. When I saw this book from Tantor I knew I had to listen to it.
This is the first book I have listened to with narration by Donna Postel and she did an outstanding job with a pleasant, expressive voice, well-modulated delivery and no trace of the pedantic.
I really liked the quality of her narration. The thing about a self-development book is that it assumes two things: But, conversation is so constant, necessary and ubiquitous that habits can be particularly hard to change. I think almost every possible context of communication is covered.
Perhaps it leaves out only family communication. I liked the section on how to have conversations with people with disabilities and the section on how to speak with people of different ages. I felt there were a few too many personality squelching no-nos; I would fear being a bit of a robot if I took her instruction to much to heart.
And, while the information is valuable and the narration excellent, it is hard to converdatiei in large doses. In large doses it was a sleep-aid. And, the narration provided the intonation that lightens the mood and prevents the subject from being too dry. 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.
Did it help me? Well the proof will be in the pudding: I tried to employ some of the techniques in my bookclub meeting the other day. If you are just starting out after school, need a graduation present for a teen or college grad or know someone trying to improve their sales technique, moving to a new area or otherwise entering a new arena then this is worth the listen.

I selected this book, The Art of Civilized Conversation: I have a hunch that the title appeared on a “Listscription” as I read quite a lot on the subject of workplace, social intelligence and mentoring.
