***What readers are saying: *** 'This is a little gem of a book. In School of life language, (which I hear in my head as the voice of Alain de Botton) which just succinctly, and without arrogance explains some clear ways of articulating difficult conversations or thoughts with family, friends, partners, work colleagues and strangers. There's something for everyone. Would be a perfect stocking filler gift.' - NetGalley review 'A helpful little book. Sometimes it's so hard to find just the right words to say in difficult situations. This book can help with that.' - NetGalley review 'This is a cute short read offering many suggestions to how to get around the awkward situations that are unavoidable in life. They are bound to happen at one point or another, don't get caught off guard! This book will help you tackle these situations with grace and confidence.' - NetGalley review 'The School of Life puts out some lovely books, and this is similarly stellar. There are some golden nuggets in here about areas of life that people rarely discuss.' - Goodreads review 'A small book but with some very good advice. We all need help in delivering difficult messages, or in finding more subtle and socially acceptable ways to avoid the direct route.' - Goodreads review 'A warm, supportive book. A short read but containing plenty of moments I went back to re-read and really think about. A lovely reminder that when we're communicating, what we really want to do is extend and experience kindness - easier said than done!' -NetGalley review
