The Ethel Cotton Course in Conversation, 1964, 2nd Revised Edition

£29.99

Product description

'Do YOU suffer from poor conversational skills? Although nowadays I may seem confident to the point of arrogance, I used to be just like you. My own failings in social intercourse embarrassed me so much that if I was approached by an acquaintance in the street, I'd frequently run away to another town and start a fresh life under an assumed name, rather than risk exposing my inadequacies to public ridicule.

Now, though - thanks to the wisdom of Ethel Cotton as displayed in her priceless Course in Conversation - I am a different man. In every situation I conduct myself with unshakable poise, conversing freely on various topics with a cultivated diction.'

The Ethel Cotton Course in Conversation, Director of Studies: G. A. Dudley. B. A. 'The fascinating new way to win poise, charm, personality.' Printed by C. Nicholls & Company in 1964- Manchester, the 2nd revised edition of 1927's original U.S print run. 12 course booklets, along with all of the original letters, model answers and paperwork in great condition, stored in the original box. Slight scuffing, but otherwise good condition. Fascinating read.
