Review & Giveaway: A Good Talk by Daniel Menaker



Sometimes when we speak we are actually saying what we mean. Other times there is a hidden meaning behind the words that pass through our lips. I've always wondered why there are times when I seem to open up to a complete stranger or keep a secret from my closest friend. Sometimes, getting a conversation started is more difficult than moving a mountain. Daniel is an expert when it comes to analyzing different conversations and I was surprised at how much I learned about myself by reading this book. If you like to dig deeper, then this is the book for you.
