Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People, written and read by Vanessa Van Edwards.
Do you wish you could decode people? Do you want a formula for charisma? Do you want to know exactly what to say to your boss, your date or your networking partner? You need to know how people work.
As a human behaviour investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards studies the hidden forces that drive our behaviour patterns in her lab - and she's cracked the code. In Captivate she shares a wealth of shortcuts, systems and behaviour hacks derived from her research, to help you take charge of interactions at work and at home. You'll learn how to execute a social game plan to navigate any social situation; how to speed-read faces for seven universal 'microexpressions' that can be used to predict people's emotions; and much more besides. When you understand the laws of human behaviour, you can get along with anyone. With Vanessa's help you will never interact in the same way again.
Includes a bonus PDF of quizzes, graphs and illustrations.

Life Changing

I don't usually write reviews but this audiobook was too good for me not to. I've really enjoyed listening to Vanessa's friendly and welcoming tone.

The guidance she provides is so easy to grasp and very practical. I've already started implementing these into my daily life and noticed the difference.

I highly recommend this book for anyone that could benefit from a direction on how to master social situations!

A must for those who struggle to connect with people

I am the person, who would be described as extrovert by those who know me well, but introvert by those who just met me. I always struggled with new people and to connect with them or leave a positive impression. However as I am in a leadership now I understand the importance of it and tried to analyse others people behaviours and mirror them myself. Since I came across Vanessa’s videos and then this book I can strongly say that my communication with others have improved significantly! I have listened to this book in the car or gym, but I’ll listen to it again so I can take notes! Thank you Vanessa!

Love your work!

As usual, your insight into social interaction are awesome. The way you explain these complex but important subject is entertaining but complete. You have sparked a new level of understanding that l wish l had a decade ago. Keep up the good work.
