Secrets Of Having A Good Talk : NPR

New Year’s means we have, at last, reached the end of cocktail party season. That means the end, too, of long conversations with almost-strangers. Some people may breathe a sigh of relief at that, but not Daniel Menaker. Guest host Ari Shapiro plies his skills with Menaker, author of A Good Talk, about the art and science of conversation.

Listening to Daniel Menaker talk about talking on Weekend Edition. His New Book, A Good Talk, is mostly geared to conversation, but it seems to me there’s more than little application to more formal situations. I mean, how many times have you heard a speaker mention the talk he or she is about to give? Audio should be available at the NPR site in about three hours.
