What are the principles of great conversation? What are some great books on the subject?
I can talk to people, but I lack the skill to surprise and delight strangers with my ability to relate to them. I want to change that. Teach me about the principles of conversing with someone you don’t know. How do you connect with them without knowing much about them. What are some great books on conversation and the principles, purpose and benefits of conversing with others?
