I really like the concept for this book. I've struggled with casual conversations my entire life. Once a conversation partner and I find a topic of mutual interest, I can usually talk for a long time. Even other people who are great conversationalists are easy to talk to, they know how to start a conversation and carry it, too. It's those people who are generally quiet, like me, and seem to have the same issue I have where it's uncomfortable to be with.
The first chapter seems like it would good to use on a first date and so many of the questions seem geared towards a close, personal relationship. A lot of questions are not suitable for the people I meet, in business, for example. Could you take what you've learned writing this book and expand it to use in a more formal, business relationship?
