This book shows how a good schmooze can be turned to social benefit, without the humiliation of "sucking up" or the hypocrisy of the "the hard sell."
· Conversational exchanges in social life, family life, workplace talk, educational interaction, and cross-cultural sequences
· Excerpts from interviews, media, and ordinary verbal interactions
· Examples of personalities schmoozing well, and badly
· A glossary of sociolinguistic terminology
· A bibliography of sources about discourse analysis

Bill Clinton is a natural schmoozer, as is Barack Obama, and there is no doubt that the ability has served them well. By softening the opposition between private and public, personal and political, higher and lower, schmoozing plays a vital, but under-appreciated role as a life and leadership skill. Everybody schmoozes nowadays, but often it is the networking sort of schmoozing rather than the kind of schmoozing that creates good interactional feelings.About the Author:
Diana Boxer, PhD, is professor of linguistics at the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL.
