Press & Reviews

Fine fully engages her audience. She involves readers in the discussion and gives lists of lines people can use to start, maintain, or end a conversation. She discusses conversation topics and how to use them and also includes quizzes, throws in a poem, and scatters a few cartoons to break up the text. Originally released as an audiocassette in 1997, this work comes across much like one of her seminars on small talk.
—David Leonhardt, Toronto, Library Journal

“Debra Fine’s excellent writing skills make it very easy to follow the compelling points she makes about verbal skills. As I read Big Talk, I felt that she had directed her presentation specifically to me and my industry.”
—Mark Ballenger, EVP and Managing Director, Grubb & Ellis, Denver

“The most essential communication skill today is engaging others in conversations that create relationships and achieve results. The Fine Art of Big Talk provides us with all the techniques and tactics we need to win over the people we live with and work alongside. I can’t recommend this book enough. It’s a must-have!”
—Susan Fenner, Ph.D., Education and Professional Development Manager, IAAP
