The Age of Conversation
In early in 2007, Gavin Heaton and Drew McLellan challenged bloggers around the world to contribute one page â€” 400 words â€” on the topic of â€œconversationâ€. The resulting book, The Age of Conversation, brings together over 100 of the worldâ€™s leading marketers, writers, thinkers and creative innovators in a ground-breaking and unusual publication.
The proceeds from the sale of the book (cost less printing and publisher’s commission) go to Variety, the Children’s Charity. The editors of, and contributors to, this book have waived their rights to royalties in support of this charitable cause.

The Age of Conversation 2
The Age of Conversation was successful enough during its first year that a second edition will be written in 2008 called The Age of Conversation: Why Don’t People Get It?
