So many of our conversations take place online, through text messages, email, and social media. But small talk still happens — short informal conversations that usually last a few minutes. “Small talk isn’t just about chattering away for no particular reason,” it’s a social skill that this short book can teach you. Chapters on barriers to good small talk, conversation openers and endings, and dealing with difficulties that arise in conversation are useful to even those who can effortlessly chat. The last chapter is a 30-day small talk challenge that can help introverts get themselves talking. Available at the Prescott Campus Library.
