Some of this is very helpful and might change the way you interact with people. But it needs cutting down it seems very longwinded and repetitive in parts. It is also a little dated.

This book has a few good tips, but the author is far too pretentious for me. I expected a book with communication tips (of which there are some), but the book is much more about manipulating people to benefit oneself.

Ugh! This was awful, now i can understand why it has so many bad reviews! Thought i would take a chance but i really regret it. Such old fashioned and unrealistic nonsense, told in a patronising and annoying way. Very unimpressed with this one!

I liked the book and the content is informative and interesting but the narration after a while began to irritate me.

As someone who has always struggled with insecurities when talking to people this book has been an absolute life changer.
My issues came to a head one night at my friend's 45th birthday where I struggled to talk to people and in the end went home upset and at my wits end as to the reasons why conversations developed either side of me and I was always left facing to backs at the table.
I might add that I am the owner/director of a successful software business and consider I am well above average intelligence. I just didn't know how to communicate and make people feel comfortable talking to me.
I searched around and after listening to various snippets of a few communications book I chose this one....
This is where I have to add a warning, "if you relate to my story above, this book will literally change your life". It had an IMMEDIATE impact with me, in less than hour I'd learnt skills of first approach, something that used to make me tremor. I now chat to many many people at the gym and in shops, at street crossings etc etc AND I look forward to those chats now.
If I could give this book 100 stars I definitely would.
Thank you Leil Lowndes for changing my life

It starts off great, but 92 is just way too much. All of the good content is at the start of the book.
