We learn to speak as babies, but how conversation actually works is something most of us pick up only haphazardly, and many have yet to learn.

What is it that some people have naturally which enables them to converse comfortably and easily, to engage people and build better relationships? The Art of Conversation will show you step by step how to converse skillfully and enjoyably with other people, at home, at work, on the phone and in the street- even if youre daunted now, discover the difference good conversation can make in every aspect of your life.
