'If you ever have to conduct a formal interview, if you are ever likely to be interviewed (for a new job, perhaps), or even if you want to have more meaningful conversations with your kids, Jane Hutcheon's Rebel Talk will be an invaluable guidebook. Engaging, amusing and illuminating, the book draws on Jane's rich experience in the art of guided conversations and distils the wisdom acquired from her brilliant career in journalism.' Hugh Mackay AO
'Have you ever tried slicing the top off a soft-boiled egg? The eggshell splinters and separates. It never looks as neat as you intended and the yolk starts to drip over the edge. It's a bit like that when a conversation goes wrong; it's unpredictable and messy ...'
