Summary written by: Jonny Petrucco "I developed the Conversationally Speaking workshop and have written this book to fill in this gap and teach these skills in an interesting, straightforward, and nontechnical manner. However, I think the goal of interaction is mutual connection as opposed to making random and untimely noises.

Alan prefers to equip others through in-person workshops, but decided to capture conversation best practices into book-form.
