I'm currently working through a book that I find very useful. It's called Conversationally Speaking, by Alan Garner.
It's easy to follow, and has practical advice on how to start and carry on conversations.

How to Talk to Anyone: 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships by Leil Lowndes is a great book which I've learned a lot from

I own Conversationally Speaking, and it seems really nice, I just haven't had the time to read though it. How to Talk to Anyone is just really easy to open up a to random page and learn something useful in a few minutes

Fine art of Small talk, good book... too much story telling and not enough substance. For conversation and building friendships is the old classic, "How to Win Friends and Influence People". Also if you are a single guy, I would recommend some of the dating books, such as "Double your Dating" by David Deangelo..... Its absolutely horrifying to try the techniques in these books but once you do you feel better about yourself, even if it is temporary. But each time you do it, you build confidence.

I speed read Conversationaly Speaking and thought it was good. Only thing I feel like I gained was the social behaviors, open posture, eye contact, so forth. I haven't tried conversing much with people though. But thanks again. I should browse and read the conversation skills chapters over again.

I couldn't fine How to Talk to Anyone: 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships by Leil Lowndes in my public library so I requested online some other book by the same authors: How to talk to anybody about anything : breaking the ice with everyone from accountants to Zen Buddhists / by Leil Lowndes.

I just requested Fine Art of small talk. Let's see what I gain from it.

I think I quickly speed read How to Win Friends and Influence People once before. It seemed like a good book. I think I should browse it again. I might learn something from it. I just requested that also.

Dating book, for me? I don't think so. I'm not ready for dating or a relationship. But thanks though.

Thanks for the book recommendations. I really appreciate it.
