Publisher's Summary

From a former FBI Special Agent specializing in behavior analysis and recruiting spies comes a handbook filled with his proven strategies on how to instantly read people and influence how they perceive you, so you can easily turn on the like switch.
The Like Switch is packed with all the tools you need for turning strangers into friends, whether you are on a sales call, a first date, or a job interview. As a Special Agent for the FBI's National Security Division's Behavioral Analysis Program, Dr. Jack Schafer developed dynamic and breakthrough strategies for profiling terrorists and detecting deception. Now, Dr. Schafer has evolved his proven-on-the-battlefield tactics for the day-to-day, but no less critical battle of getting people to like you.
In The Like Switch, he presents these techniques for how you can influence, attract, and win people over. Learn how to think and react like your favorite TV investigators from Criminal Minds or CSI as Dr. Schafer shows you how to improve your LQ (Likeability Quotient), "spot the lie" both in person and online, master nonverbal cues that influence how people perceive you, and turn up or turn down the intensity of a relationship.
Dr. Schafer cracks the code on making great first impressions, building lasting relationships, and understanding others' behavior to learn what they really think about you. With tips and techniques that hold the key to taking control of your communications, interactions, and relationships, The Like Switch shows you how to read others and get people to like you for a moment or a lifetime.

Only one criticism: the audiobook doesn't appear to come with the PDF referenced by the author several times throughout the book, which evidently has some visual learning tools. That said...
Excellent, excellent book that does exactly what it says it will do, and more. The author very clearly teaches you how to:
• get almost anyone to like you
• quickly determine if circumstances will disallow you to become friends, & techniques for overcoming these situations
• know when someone is lying (or prone to lie) in nearly any situation
• bring out the best in yourself & others
• avoid being taken advantage of, both in person & online
• get the best possible deal when negotiating or making a purchase
Highly recommended.
