📚 Finished reading Talk: The Science of Conversation by Elizabeth Stokoe. It’s fascinating to see how inadequate our usual methods of transcription are versus the more accurate scientific methods used here. A short book which gives an insight into how conversations really work.

@adoran2 Ah! I work designing conversational interfaces (like Alexa and Google), and while I've read several other books on conversation, not this one. Thanks for the reco.

@bsebesta Ah, super! The book is written for the general reader but I thought it was really insightful.

@adoran2 I'll have to read it. BTW, how do you make the nice quote graphics you use for some of your books? Is that custom or do you have a tool to automate it?

@bsebesta I use Readwise to save highlights from books that I read. It then generates one of these graphics if I want to share a highlight.
