    " Listened to the audiobook. Very enjoyable. I may even buy it for reference (yes, I'm that socially challenged), and I rarely pay for books. "

    " It is quite amazing how easy mingling seems, in theory, after reading this book. There are so many topics of conversation suggested that it seems inconceivable that anyone could ever be lost for words. The trouble is I still am. I suspect it would take more than a book to make me mingle, but for less hopeless cases this book could well be the answer! "

    " I got to "Advanced Mingling Techniques" and decided to abandon ship. I picked this up mostly for the humor factor, but seriously - so much of it is based on lying, often at the expense of other party guests! The people who actually employ these tactics are THE REASON that the other 90% of us are "minglephobes!" "

    " Read by the author...a bad idea in this case...voice is too unpleasant and there is a lot of information without pause. More pauses would be good to allow one to consider what has just been said. "
