This book is organized by profession/job title. Within the few pages dedicated to each profession, there are basic questions to break the ice using key jargon. If you are well read, or have different interests, you can skip this book. If you are shy, or need that little push to get the ball rolling, give this a try.
This is from the description on back of book: "Alphabetized like a dictionary, this unique book supplies the most appropriate questions to ask, key words to use, and provocative issues to raise with anyone in more than one hundred fields."
Leil Lowndes has a special knack for conversingwith anyone. A communications expert, freelance writer, and former talk-show hostess, she has interviewed personalities in a variety of fields.
