I liked this book because it discusses the importance of conversation as a glue that holds society together and helps give meaning to life. I think rethinking about and being reminded why conversation is important to civilization was the most important idea that I came away with. As a somewhat shy person, it also gave me some ways to think about how one goes about having a conversation. I really like this book and would recommend it to anyone.

I found "The Art of Conversation" to be an incredibly informative as well as an entertaining read. Even the experienced conversationalist could pick up a few tips from the book, which is well organized--each chapter's lessons are formatted into numbered bullet-points. Ms. Blyth uses referenced sources along with her own insight to deliver one of the most useful and fresh "How-To" guides to an under-appreciated art form. My only complaint is that the language can be hard to understand at times, occasionally sounding a little too esoteric for a book written in a conversational tone. However, "The Art of Conversation" remains the best self-help book I've read in a long time, and I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in improving their conversational skills.
