From the Publisher
Understand human behavior and social psychology - and then you can understand yourself and the people around you.
Let's face it - most of the problems that we encounter in our lives aren't about the situation, it's about the person in front of you. Whether it's a parent, sibling, co-worker, or even significant other, there might be a gap in understanding. That's reasonable and normal.
But what if you could learn to understand people, their motivations, what makes them tick, and ultimately how to connect with them better? This is renowned author Patrick King's specialty: distilled emotional intelligence that helps you decipher why people do the things that they do.
He combines his natural instinct for human analysis with a plethora of the latest scientific research in the field to bring you the end result you want: better relationships, high self-esteem and confidence, self-understanding, and overall fulfillment and happiness.

I feel weird in writing such a glowing review someone's gonna be like FAKE. I swear it's not, look up buying profile or reach out directly to me. Whatever man...I'm already getting worked up about people I don't know saying I'm fake...haha
Patrick does give several examples of good exercises to improve your quick wit and a framework, of sorts, how to prepare before any conversation. I did find it helpful and inspirational that anyone can improve and become a better conversationalist. It's not revolutionary, but a nice short read that might open your mind to more things.
