The book has a lot of content I already knew, which can be found in other books. The part on how people use specific senses to view their world and how you can use that to improve the interaction was new to me though and was very refreshing to learn about. That and the various suggestions how to practice the skills makes it a good read. The quality of the audio wasn't that good though. There was a light buzz in the background most of the time.
Not likely, although there were some interesting thoughts/tips it was really not ground breaking compared to other more in depth books I have read.
I didn't want to judge this book by it's cover which seemed a bit gimmicky, but it essentially was. It referred to many other deeper theories about first impressions, trust, confidence, and interpersonal connections, but other books have done a better job. I think this book's niche is in the quick and easy surface stuff which comes across gimmicky.
Not an issue.
It did refer to important underlying considerations for why interpersonal connectedness is important, but was too surface level not to be gimmicky. I see it more as a seminar than as a book.
