More Than Just Talk: The Essential Guide for Anyone Who Wants to Enjoy Better Conversations (Paperback)
After months of social isolation due to the Pandemic, do you feel that your “conversation muscles” have atrophied a bit? This just might be the read for you! We all know how connections benefit our basic health and psyche. Author Patti DeNucci has done extensive research on the skills and benefits of communication, and coupled with her interest and ability to communicate, she has written this straight-forward, easy to digest guide filled with advice, guidance and inspiration. The book format invites readers to reflect on their own conversations, and choose the information that applies to them. I know first hand that Patti has the innate capacity to engage in fun and meaningful conversations. (She’s my sister-in-law) , and I may be biased, but I love this book! If you enjoyed Atlas of the Heart by Brene Brown, then I know you’ll relish More Than Just Talk. If you don’t believe me, check out Patti’s Podcasts and Ted Talks.

Research proves we humans are wired for connection and community. What's more, positive daily interactions with family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and even people we encounter as we go about our days help us thrive personally and professionally. And yet, we live in an era where an increasing number of obstacles prevent us from communicating and conversing well-or at all-with others.
What can we do to make it easier, more pleasant, and more rewarding to converse and connect-and do it with greater authenticity, ease, and confidence?
Networking and communications expert Patti DeNucci takes on this challenge with her latest book, More Than Just Talk: The Essential Guide for Anyone Who Wants to Enjoy Better Conversations.
Like her previous award-winning guide, The Intentional Networker, Patti's newest book is well-researched and impeccably organized. Short yet substantive chapters are filled with engaging stories, opportunities for reflection, valuable strategies, and dozens of try-today techniques that can help readers have more of the conversations they want-and fewer of those they don't. Delivering unique insights with her funny and friendly style, Patti has created a timely, compelling book that is highly readable and universally appealing.
