As a professor and psychologist, I converse a lot with people from all walks of life. I thought I was a good conversationalist because of all the practice I had...that is until I read this book. Using tons of social science research to back up her claims, Celeste Headlee dives deep into what is wrong with our conversations and how to fix it. I found myself nodding a lot while I read. Yep, I make that mistake. Oh no, I make that mistake too...all. the. time. Luckily I didn't have to beat myself up too long before Celeste would gift me with data-supported advice on ways to address the mistake she just helped me uncover. I've already seen her advice pay huge dividends in conversations with my kids, spouse, and colleagues. Seriously, this is a must read...for anyone...especially if you think you already know all you need to about conversations. It's going to be my go-to gift from now on. Seriously, buy it. You won't regret it. I surely don't.
