Be a good conversationalist

It's more about being a good conversationalist versus being witty. Still, there are some good tips like having topics and stories prepared much like you would have answers prepared for a job interview. Some suggestions include a list ("resume") of unique experiences, interesting accomplishments, interesting things that happened that week, recent fun weekends, opinions on top cultural news, and funny facts about your hometown. Another good tip is to not throw out compliments randomly. Observe what the person has spent time or considerable thought on, such as someone wearing a Hawaiian shirt instead of a T-shirt as most others have done. Compliment the person on his style. Not only would the person appreciate the acknowledgment, it will likely start an excited conversation about how he got into Hawaiian shirts and his favorite colors and patterns.

Witty? Really?!

While this would be a good book on learning how to talk to others, I think he should drop the word "witty" from the title. I read it since I enjoy humor. This author's witty remarks didn't strike me as humorous. on most of his "snappy" comebacks I not only wouldn't be amused, I'd be insulted.

Not what it says it is

This has nothing to do with witty banter more a beginner's guide to conversation for the socially inept. Very disappointing .

Shart of a Witless w**ker

Utter tripe. A Painfully pedestrian stole through the autistic ramblings, examples of 'clever conversations' given are eye gougingly moronic and lack even the basic understanding of a playful exchange, they are devoid of wit and charisma. Annoyed I wasted my hard earned cash on this cak!
