About this item

Beyond Small Talk is a book for enhancing social skills and developing conversation starters—how to have a deeper connection with people, with tips based on human and social psychology as well as the author's observations and proven coaching techniques. Readers will learn the basics of what makes a good interaction, as well as a plethora of highly-actionable techniques to become more confident, charismatic, and likable. For example:

  • If your conversations are boring, it may be because you don't know yourself—your experiences or opinions—so you have little to share
  • Most people ask bad questions because they are either too specific (what's your favorite movie?) or too broad (what is your passion?)
  • If you need a witty comeback to an insult, simply agree with the insult and amplify it to an outlandish degree. This shows security and wit.

    Think of Beyond Small Talk as a more detailed and nuanced How to Win Friends & Influence People for the modern age, now that most people see Carnegie's book as "common sense." It will be a handy reference for both introverts looking to step out, and confident speakers looking for an edge. Beyond Small Talk empowers readers to step out of their comfort zones to not only break the ice, but also engage an audience in a meaningful and enriching conversation. It is a handy book that will empower readers to speak confidently.
