Do you want better conversations with your lover, your colleagues at work, your family, friends or strangers, or yourself? Conversation explains what kind of talk charmed and excited people in the past, and why we talk differently today. It explores the art and the history of conversation and how it can be the key to a happier, more interesting future. It shows how women have changed the ways lovers speak, how families avoid silence or boredom, how your work can damage or improve the way you converse, and what role there is for the tongue-tied and shy. This book will enable you to see more clearly what you want to talk about, and what conversation can do to your life.

Zeldin is a remarkable mind and a person of extraordinary brilliance in terms of writing. However, this bookd fell short on my expectations. perhaps i was expecting a lot more, influence by the author's masterpiece - 'An intimate history of humanity'. The book does have some gems of reflections and observations but overall I did not find it too engaging.
