Description-

  • Teens sign up for phone plans with unlimited text messages and 200 talk minutes, yet can't carry on an ordinary dinner conversation. Beyond Texting is the first book for teens to explain how to be plugged in without neglecting the necessity and power of physical, human interaction.  Sure, MySpace and Facebook are wonderful ways to communicate with friends or stay in touch with a far off relative. Yet  success in the online world does not transfer to success in the art of conversation. Even the most outgoing teen may find a job interview, first date, or meeting with a teacher to be challenging because of lack of skills.   Beyond Texting presents communication tools and conversation skills to boost confidence, survive AND thrive. This book describes how to develop the ability to have a 3-D conversation while gaining interpersonal communication skills. Offering practical advice and cheat sheets Beyond Texting strives to help teens balance their digital and real world image and relationships. Beyond Texting is a reminder to a teenager that you do have the courage to speak up at school, that you should feel confident going on a date, that you can attend a party alone and that you are capable of a successful job interviewall without the crutch of technology.   Authored by Debra Fine, bestselling author of The Fine Art of Small Talk, a nationally recognized conversation and communication guru.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    June 16, 2014
    Fine aims to help teenagers navigate their social and professional lives through effective communication. Suggesting that early relationships inform later ones, she encourages readers to move beyond their comfort zones to better understand themselves and others. Included are anecdotes about individuals facing various dilemmas (one student “comes across as disengaged in class” because she is shy and avoids eye contact with her teacher), as well as tips for making conversation, saying “no” to peer pressure, and balancing online and in-person relationships. Fine is keenly aware of the role technology plays in teenage relationships, while recognizing that building meaningful connections still requires work. Ages 13–up.

    Gr 7 Up-Fine, who has written titles for adults, now turns to teens with advice on conversation and social skills to help with friendship, jobs, and social events. Short chapters use pithy titles to describe various topics ("Entering the Chatroom" discusses icebreakers, while "Sending Instant Messages" deals with body language) and, in a nod to Facebook, end with a "poke," or a brief sum-up. Unfortunately, these metaphors feel a bit forced and may date quickly. The book is divided into three sections: "Conquering the Conversational Basics," "Dealing with Difficult Interactions," and "Managing the Digital World." The first section is the most successful and contains some helpful suggestions for starting a conversation that both adults and teens should find beneficial, while the latter two have some fairly predictable advice without real insight. Overall, the author's style is accessible to teens. However, despite its eye-catching, bright yellow color, the cover is cluttered with writing and lacks illustrations, meaning most teens will probably give this title a pass. A useful book, but one that may have limited appeal to its intended audience.-Michelle Anderson, Tauranga City Libraries, New Zealand
