'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.

Slight scuffing, but otherwise good condition. Fascinating read.
