"How to Strike up a Conversation with Anyone (or Anything)"
A confidence-building self-help book. The book repeatedly claims that, if you just believe in yourself, you can talk to anything. Yes, that's right - just start talking to something and you'll magically be able to understand it. I don't know how true that is, but it sure was inspirational!
I'm now finished with my studies, and recorded my knowledge here for you all. We should now be able to attempt to start conversations with other beings, as well as more effectively communicate with them.
