Book Overview

Have you ever been at a cocktail party when all of a sudden you feel like an outsider in the conversation because you have absolutely no idea what the person is talking about? You're standing around with a glass of wine and someone starts talking about how the stock market did that day leading to the career highs of Ben Bernanke and the best way to short a stock. You stand there completely silent because you know nothing about the stock market, let alone the history of economics. You're being pushed to the outside edge of the pack and there's no way to reach gracefully for your iPhone and Google. Fear not: Imogen Lloyd Webber is on a mission to make everyone as conversationally nimble as she has learned to be as a cable news pundit. Her solution: get a few cheat sheets and study up. Remember cheat sheets, those slips of paper filled with facts? As Imogen might say Google is good, but a cheat sheet is forever. In eight cheat sheets, Imogen takes you through the facts that come up in most conversations: the English language, math/economics, religion, history, politics, geography, biology and culture. From the history of money to who signed The Magna Carta, Imogen shows you how to get back in a conversation, win any argument and most importantly, how to pivot out of a tough conversational bind. Imogen Lloyd Webber's The Intelligent Conversationalist will help you talk with anyone about anything anytime.

   Treat it like a Whitman's sampler
This might not make you the smartest person in the room, but it will help you SOUND that way. Lively, enticing reading that you can learn whenever the mood strikes. It is treated like a Whitman sampler. A few minutes is spent dipping at random into the pages. At every turn, you will find a satisfying nugget that will enliven your conversations.

   Good prep!
This book was not what I thought it would be, but interesting and helpful nonetheless. It is a general lesson on several general subjects on which intelegent people should be familiar. This book is a must read before engaging in conversation with people you don 't want to look stupid in front of.

   Highly Recommended!
Wonderful review of everything you should really be able to converse with other adults confidently, along with great ways to escape potentially dangerous topics. Imogen shares a lot of information in very efficiently written cheat sheets that will help you sound like you actually paid attention in school. My whole family has thoroughly enjoyed the book, including my know-it-all father, obsessed with learning history and politics. Imogen, thank you!

   Disappointment
I wish I had saved $16. There are no new insights or great information hete. It has a pedantic, snarky tone with a subtle note of British superiority. A lot of it is the kind of uber-liberal drivel that you hear on an episode of West Wing, which seems to admire the author so much. I think that if you live in Hollywood or Manhattan and attend cocktail parties with these pseudo-intellectual, self-aggrandizing, egotistic types, this book might come in handy. For the rest of us, subscribe to a good online encyclopedia, it is a better use of $16.

   Loved it!
A wonderful book, filled with so much insightful information. It is well written and it's funny so that you can 't put it down and you learn so much about all kinds of things that I can see how it would keep a conversation going.

   waste of time
This book was written to teach money, not to make it. A waste of pointless information and a full waste of time. Don 't buy it!

   Written to politically persuade instead of educating objectively
No doubt that the author is intelligent, but I was not expecting the lofty tone, political bias and anti-American feel.
