Instant Wit: How to Be Witty and Come Up with the Right Things to Say Instantly! by The INSTANT-Series covers many more topics than the title describes. You are cleverly taught how to interact with everyone in professional and social settings, no matter how uncomfortable or aggressive they are. The book lays out why having a witty repertoire is essential for success in work and life in general. There follows a quick test to measure your own level of wit. It gives you a clear understanding of how to read others and how to interact with them according to their mood or personality. This book is not only useful for your personal life, but will give you the skills to easily deal with confrontations and awkward social situations. The book will arm you with your own personal arsenal of witty comebacks for any dilemma and transform you into a professional of banter and witty one-liners.
Instant Wit was not what I was expecting, in a positive way. The INSTANT-Series has produced the perfect guide for anyone who has thought ‘I wish I had said that!’ By following the fun exercises, you will understand how to develop a comeback to defuse the situation and put you back in control. It will also teach you how to read situations from a different viewpoint, by removing the perceived threat, and then gives you the tools to create a clever, witty retort instantly. I loved the Cashier Scenario and will definitely be using that witty wonder! I would recommend this book to anyone who is afraid of public speaking or works with the public or just for those who struggle with social interactions. I will also check out the other guides in The INSTANT-Series.
