From the Inside Flap:

Everyone's experienced it: feeling trapped in a going-nowhere conversation with a vague, argumentative, or just plain boring talker or, worse, realizing that you are the one who just can't seem to get the point across to your listener. While it is easy to identify a bad conversationalist, pinpointing how to improve communication can be difficult.

Experts Kevin Hogan and Ron Stubbs can help. Here, they identify the eight most common communication mistakes. These bad habits include failing to make a good first impression, flubbing the story, not listening, arguing with the intent to harm, criticizing, displaying hostility and contempt, disregarding body language, and ignoring the cycle of communication.

Then, the authors use plenty of examples and suggestions to illustrate the proper techniques and strategies for improving communication. By using these tips, anyone can improve their conversational skills and be a better communicator, in their business, social, or family life.
