Publisher's Summary

Whether interviewing, selling, networking, or leading a team, brainstorming with the boss or delivering a presentation, success in business depends on connecting with other people. Nicholas Boothman, the best-selling author who consults with Fortune 500 companies, now brings his system of forging instant relationships to the world of business. Beginning with the simplest of tools (face, body, attitude, and voice) he shows how to make a dazzling first impression. And then, for when those first 90 seconds are up, how to master the people-to-people skills that are essential to self-confident, effective, ongoing communication.

Based on sound scienfic principles in psychology

Listened to the book twice so far. Author is entertaining, informative and based on sound psychological principles.
I am a psychologist and developed some of these skills taught by leading professors at my University. Highly recommend this book.

Good choice for establishing rapport

NLP is the basis of this book. Those who know NLP will likely know what to expect from this book. Those who don't should take a peak. NLP takes the stance that non-verbal communication such as, body language, drives people closer or further away during the early stages of the conversation. By understanding how our non-verbal communication affects those around us, we can learn to establish trust and rapport with other people. Like any self help book, you will likely have to change your current attitude toward communication to get real results from this book.

Overall the book is well done. The author has a pleasant voice, and uses numerous stories to illustrate his examples. I would have liked more outline, structure and summaries to emphasize key points. I find it difficult to get every detail out of a story, especially an audio story. Several times, the author would end a segment by reminding the listener to review the steps in their head. But he would not do so on the audio program. The audio format makes this review difficult since it requires rewinding and re-listening to the program segment. Again, I would recommend this book to anyone desiring better connections skills.
