9780099581987: The Conversations: 66 Reasons to Start Talking

We've all known the heady thrill of a conversation that goes on all night. Once we had opinions on everything but as life becomes more humdrum we often lose that passion. Sometimes we can't remember what we really think at all.

This brilliant book encourages us all to think anew. Olivia Fane provides the starting points for 66 conversations to be had with a partner, friend, stranger or simply with ourselves. These though-provoking and stimulating short discussions on happiness, vanity, infidelity, education and more, ask you the questions that will help you get to know those with whom you share your life.

Whether you agree or vehemently disagree, The Conversations provides endless food for thought and a surprising window onto some of the big subjects that define who we are and how we live.

Review:

"Olivia Fane gives us 66 things to talk about in 66 terrific little essays" (William Leith Evening Standard)

"Superbly ingenious - this book will make you think and argue" (Oliver James, author of Affluenza and Office Politics)

"Full of wisdom about how to live, what is means to be you and how to communicate that knowledge to the people you love" (Andrew G. Marshall, author of I Love You But I'm Not In Love With You)

"They fulfil their brief perfectly: as aide-memoires to better human interaction. The charisma of her writing will certainly win her allies, but Fane doesn’t try to impose her belief system on her readers. You will read the book in a single sitting and dip back into it for years to come" ( www.welovethisbook.com)

Book Description:

In the vein of Alain de Botton and Adam Phillips, a provocative and diverting book of short essays to get you thinking and talking. Conversations to have with friends, partners, or just with yourself.
