Publisher's Summary

Connect to the world around you and realize the enormous potential in talking to strangers.
Every day, random encounters really can change lives, when you make them happen the right way and leverage the connection at the other end. Talk to Strangers explains how to stand out and tap the potential of others by taking notice of who is standing alongside you on the bank line, the latte pickup point, or the ticket counter at the airport. David Topus' life-changing message is that we should "always connect", which means going beyond online relationships and engaging in the random, real-life interactions that have unlimited potential to supercharge businesses, accelerate careers, and enrich your life.
In Talk to Strangers, you will discover:

Why there is opportunity through the people you meet wherever you go
The four key beliefs of successful random connectors
Techniques for creating comfort and trust quickly with complete strangers
How to optimize and monetize your newly-established contacts
When you connect to those in your everyday world, you'll discover the life-expanding potential of random encounters and unlimited opportunities.

A New Low.

I was intrigued in purchasing this Audio Book, as I thought..with such a simple premise, there has to be some sort of valuable insight, or a twist on how to intereact with people. Boy was I wrong! This had all of the quality and sophistication of a 1950's-era- educational film on how the earth "is round." Not only does Mr. Topus confirm by his very writings that he manipulates people and settings for his personal business agenda, he undermines the very premise of this book, that all people have something to offer. Apparently not. Stunningly bad book. I do give it one star for this reason -- clearly, Mr. Topus walks his talk. Only through a "random connection" could he have come into contact with someone high enough in a publishing house could this book have been published.

Not what I expected

I was expecting more of a "how to" guide outlining the subtle tips and tricks there are for talking to strangers. Rather what I got was a series of short stories resembling a biography, outlining examples of how the author or a friend achieved positive results from talking to a stranger.

While interesting it was not exactly what I was expecting

Master of Leverage

The super-successful-American drawl grates from the offset and is entirely mercenary, though I have to admit I (too) did easily warm to the clever Mr Topus - a real master of 'leverage' in business. It does what it says on the tin, though it was a little repetitive at times. I bought this in haste so I expected it to cover lots of different life/career situations - my fault for not reading the description. It doesn't. It is purely about generating income.
