Good conversations are more than just a fun way to pass the time, they're essential to our well-being. Studies have shown that people who have more good conversations are happier, healthier, and even live longer. So it's no wonder that we all want to learn how to have more of them!

We all intuitively know when we are having a good conversation, but few of us know what we can do to have more of them. Let alone that there is a whole scientific field called conversation analysis (CA) that studies social interaction and language. And there's a lot of practical implications we can take from the science of good conversations and apply to our daily conversations.
