At universities all over America, I found they were teaching students skills for doing better.

I had no friends, was not at all socially confident, was wandering around Europe after having dropped out of UCLA because of loneliness and depression. One day I stumbled upon an article about some universities which were teaching conversation skills to groups like men who never date, women who have no friends, and couples who seldom talk to each other. After learning these skills, the men, women and couples all did considerably better. I was intrigued, and made it a point to learn these skills upon my return.
