Product Description

Product Description

Who is this book for?

"Always Know What To Say" is for anyone who wants a straight to the point explanation of conversation skills fundamentals. I point out key distinctions you can apply right away to go from being tongue tied and unsure of what to say to having fun meeting people and getting to know them better. If you read AND apply what I cover in the book you`ll make steady progress and become much more at ease talking to people.

This book is not for you if you already have very good conversation skills and are comfortable meeting new people and letting your personality shine. You need to go elsewhere if you are looking for "secrets" and advanced strategies to achieve conversation skills mastery. You`ll regard this book as common sense.

And finally, this book is not for you if you read self help books and disregard the training because you`ve read something similar before and never apply what you learn. You`ll tell yourself you knew it all already.

You`ll gain a lot from "Always Know What To Say" if you treat it as a set of principles and strategies you get to play with in the real world. This is not light entertainment, its practical training that`s designed for you to use in your day to day life. If you do you`ll enjoy the happiness and warmth that comes from connecting with the important people in your life whether that be in your family and community or at work.

Here`s what people are saying about this book at Amazon.com

"If you are a shy person who finds it difficult to communicate with new people then this book will be helpful. Peter Murphy presents conversation starters, explains body language and teaches you what to ask people when you first meet. This book contains simple strategies for entertaining conversations. With this book anyone should be able to survive a party or talk to strangers on a plane. I personally find that listening to people talk about their life is a good way to make people like you. Being a shy person by nature I found some of this book to be very useful."

Rebecca Johnson

"I found a lot of great ideas in this book. I will have to refer back to it frequently to remember some of the ideas. Its a short book but not only is it packed with great ideas but the author has a great free website packed with ideas and there is a free audio on his website. I think it would be worth writing down some of the ideas and reviewing them before a social situation."

Cynthia from Florida

"As a manager of a retail store that pushes strong customer service, I have a large young staff. I've shared excerpts from this book with them and it blows their mind. As a young person they are having a hard time talking to people about something that they are worried doesn't interest the customer so they are all worried about failure and rejection. This book, I believe, has helped save my store. It is very basic, but almost like, why didn't I think to tell my staff that!"

J.Conley

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed June 16 2013
By DB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a bit disappointed with the book. I think that the author may have had some interesting insights, but I couldn't get past the poor use of grammar and punctuation. The run-on sentences made it feel like I was correcting a 12th grade English paper. I think that the book would be very valuable if the author would hire a professional editor.

Not worth it..doesn't give realistic solutions. The suggestions are too vague. Including daily life conversational examples from different settings would have been better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book but be careful of the come-on March 8 2012
By Pawlowa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read one review that sounded like, "if you've been alive for a few years you won't need this book". Something about being raised with wolves, etc. Even if you're good with people this book is a good refresher. Before retiring I spent my working life dealing with people and was very successful in this regard, even with the most difficult and demanding, but I still enjoyed the book. It's a short and easy read. But, beware of the part where the author suggests downloading his free audio. It's just a come-on to purchase. His web site address takes you to a page where you must enter your email address to gain access to the download, but then you're doused with all kinds of information designed to reach into your wallet. I didn't download the "free" audio.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time July 16 2012
By Pontius - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This 'book' reads like a Powerpoint presentation. There's no depth to it, no substance, just headings and a few sentences to make the headings look expanded upon. They're not. I'm guessing it took the author about an hour to put together - half that if he used his actual Powerpoint slides. It's a waste of time, offers nothing of value, and shouldn't be offered on Amazon, even if it is free.

If this is a topic that interests you, try Leil Lowndes's book "How to Talk to Anyone: 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships." It's a meaty book that actualy addresses the questions this book only pretends to address.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't really say anything Sept. 9 2012
By Entomy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book doesn't actually say anything other than the generic "stop thinking this" or "don't do this, rather, do this" or "present your positive self". Okay, so how do I do that? An example would be lovely.

Some of the information, experts disagree with. For instance: swinging legs is often considered a display of child like joy; rarely anger. Rolling the foot on the ball of the ankle is a form of gravity defying behavior, and will more often than not, signify happiness. And tapping of the foot can mean anything from "I'm nervous and trying to calm myself down" to "I'm bored" to "I've got a lot of a stimulant in me" to "I'm angry". Things need to be viewed in context, not "this means that".

I was only reading this over looking for a good book on the subject for a friend of mine. I honestly cannot recommend something so lacking in substance and so generic it's misleading at times. The author should strongly consider expanding on the material, and then republishing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Conversation Igniters Jan. 12 2014
By Joshua Voiles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It seems quite clear many reviewers have criticized this book without having actually read it - which is part of the price of giving a book away for free.

Nevertheless, although much of this book is very basic, there are a few gems that make the price of free and the 20 minutes it took to read well worth it.

There is a list of power questions that serve as great fodder for elevating a conversation, and thus strengthening the connection available to you. Some of these questions may seem obvious, but it's surprisingly helpful to have them readily available as opposed to having to dig for them in your working memory.

For example:

> What has been the most life-changing experience you've ever had?
> What is the most spontaneous thing you've ever done?
> Who's had the biggest influence on your life?
> What dream would you most like to make a reality?

If a conversation is lagging or you want to take an otherwise decent conversation to the next level - whip these questions out. I highly recommend it. It works.

Decide that you are happy whether or not someone else is rude, having a bad day or too tired or hungry to spend time getting to know you. See that happiness starts with your own attitude and that its not dependent on the reaction of someone you have never meet before. &quote;
