Imagine having three life-coaches who had been through the toughest mental and physical challenges; a crack team of problem-solvers who knew in their day job that one mistake could be the difference between life - and death. Whilst as a society we can benefit from instant messaging through text and WhatsApp, we are primed to hear rather than see. To coin one of Nihal's own phrases, it's 'more light than noise' and as such, I found it truly inspirational. With insights from ‘professional conversationalists’ from various sectors, this is a thoughtful read with some practical takeaways on how to have better conversations. That being said, Arthanyake conducted some great interviews for the book and I enjoyed many of his/their insights into conversations and the psychology around the subject.

From ever decreasing face-to-face meetings to echo chambers online, we no longer have the necessary tools to talk to each other. I read this at the same time as Malcolm Gladwell's Talking to Strangers and despite the books being on a similar topic/approach, this is hands down the better of the two. I hope that most of us won’t be in the positions that some of the interviewees were in, there are lessons to be learned about having better conversations with those we disagree with.

A resolve to be a giant among men, to conquer, plunder and seize the greatness that he thinks is his right. A lot of the time this worked well to link together the individuals the author spoke to for the book, but at times it did feel more like I was being sold his radio show/podcasts. According to Johann Hari which is literally quoted in this book saying that such a thing as tweeting keeps you distracted for about 25 minutes every time. He currently presents a daily daytime show on BBC 5 Live, and his unique interviewing style was recently recognised at the BBC Radio and Music Awards where he won Interview of the Year.

In this five-part series, US happiness expert and positive psychologist Michelle Gielan and British journalist and author Oliver Burkeman explore ways to become truly happier, backed up by scientific evidence. Although this won’t be a major revelation for most, I enjoyed this read and found it v insightful in parts. In conclusion, “Let’s Talk: How to Have Better Conversations” is a book that gives us insight into why conversations, even the most difficult, as ones that are worth having, I leave you with a quote from one of our previous book club authors, Matt Haig “ A very impassioned defence of conversation as an art”. Let’s Talk blends Nihal’s experiences as an acclaimed interviewer with expert opinion on the secrets and psychology behind successful communication. P66[ Elizabeth Stokoe ]- ‘an effective conversation is one that generates the least misunderstanding, the least friction , the least need to do the thing again, And the least tension and friction and misunderstanding as you make progress together across the arc of interaction.In many ways this is not like any of the books I have read in the past, in the sense that this is not an easily read fiction book, or even an autobiography. For those who aren’t aware, Nihal Arthanayake is a Radio DJ for BBC Radio 5 Live and the host of the Headliners podcast.

Annoyingly, I couldn't finish it as I couldn't renew the library copy - three people in line behind me to read it! This is such an important book right now, and I find that I need to heed many of these tips and process many of the questions raised.

Naturally you don't agree with everything but you understand the logic and the argument is of course well made.Nihal Arthanyake has done a wonderful job of telling us how wonderful conversations by bringing people who need to communicate on. The 9 Step Negativity Detox is a powerful series that will teach you the nine simple steps to free you from the unnecessary causes of negativity in your life. Broadcaster Nihal Arthanayake helped me through lockdown; I’d often sit listening to his interviews on his BBC Radio 5 Live show when my social interaction and conversation topics were limited! As an essential part of my day job as a coach is having better conversations, I was intrigued by what I would uncover when I read “Let’s Talk (How to Have Better Conversations)*. This book is easy to understand, although I would have preferred maybe a few transcripts of the conversations involved, rather than the style this book took with its information, but I guess it got to the heart of the matter of what it wanted to say.
