Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Honestly this book treats you like you don’t know how to talk to literally anyone. The information presented is so basic, that it’s almost annoying to have someone try and explain it. If you have even a basic understanding of how conversations work, I’d probably skip this book.
I'll admit that some bits in this book were sound, but most of it seems odd and off putting or just straight up manipulative. I feel like they really lost me when they started dipping into FBI interrogation techniques and lying to try and bait someone into an argument in order to get to know them better. I also feel like the examples of different techniques in action were oversimplified and not believable. I couldn't even bring myself to finish reading the book.
This book basically goes over many things I’ve already know about the art of small talk. It basically says that you need to have knowledge to continue a conversation. Not really worth reading because it’s basic knowledge perhaps someone who is new and wants to learn something or two might be interested but I found this book lot very helpful.
Half way through this book, and I would rather stab myself in the eye with a salad fork. Obvious, cringey, and if you think Chad who's super into networking at your companies holiday party is totally annoying, you will not be any more excited about small talk by reading this.
