Good advice to anyone who thinks that they might want to talk to another human being. Some of it is common sense (understandably) and some advice is going a bit far, but overall it is worthwhile. Read full review

I've just started reading this book but the contents are quite interesting with real-life examples such as hand shacking tips (which we usually don't pay attention to).I find it quite entertaining with some funny jokes around.Those quotes are great. Read full review
