Tell us about yourself!
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their people skills, and understanding a bit more about human nature and interaction.
Loved the book and will listen to it again, great buy.
The presentation is logical and easy to follow. It answers many of the questions many of us have but do not know where to go to find the answers.
There are no characters in this book.
The rate of speech is excellent. It is easy to listen to and comprehend.
I learned so much from this book and would highly recommend it.
The plus is that the speaker's got a great voice, fun to listen to! Some opportunities: It would be helpful is the speaker offered sign posts when moving to a new section by pausing before starting it. In a written book, we can see the headers; not so, in an audio. Also it's really annoying that the reference is to "the box below". Why not ask the author/performer to modify the audiobook edition to that the speaker talks through the sidebars? I noticed in Bill OReilly's books, he makes small modifications ("in this audiobook, we'll discuss xyz"). Finally, and most importantly, the author emphasizes the importance of completing various worksheets. Why not make the worksheets easily downloadable for audio book listeners.
GK Chesterton (or maybe CS Lewis) said we need to be reminded of what we know more than we need to be taught something new. Many of these concepts are things we all know ... the reminder of their importance is invaluable!
She talks about everything, not just energy, but posture, voice and she has good studies. Very helpful for everyday life, but especially for presenters and teachers.
Absolutely. The book begs to be listened to multiple times to let all of its truth sink in.
Very interesting concept!
The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs... There were many parallels; however, the progression of charisma is clearly visible when applied to Steve Jobs.
Not very charismatic
I felt like the beginning was a little too graphic for my taste... A less harrowing example would've been preferred.
There was nothing wrong with Lisa's voice it was rather how mellow her voice was that contrasted with the charismatic subject of the book, I'm sure she does great on other subjects!
Not sure!! I would have loved to have a workbook so that I could get the most out of it.
I have already applied some of the insights and it works. I have people telling me how warm I am and they keep asking me if I am the manager for my sales region.
Get it and follow the advice.
There is a science and practice of charisma, and this book makes charisma learnable and usable for anyone willing to invest the time and attention. Highly recommended.
It is apparently a deep, dark secret that Audible doesn't wish us to know, but in spite of their failure to provide a pdf to accompany this book, the author herself does so on her website. She provides a free 10 page pdf "workbook" with the information that other reviewers lamented the lack of. I found this through a google search on the book's title and posted the url in a review I submitted previously. Audible did not see fit to publish that review (deep, dark secrets, I'm telling you), but I'm trying again. Google it for yourself, but be sure to select the link that lists 'Workbook and Audio files" (easy, Audible, it's not the audiobook) since I couldn't find it when I selected the link to her homepage.
As I said, my previous review, created specifically to provide this information, was quashed by Audible censors, but here we go again. Do your worst Audible.
Yes...b/c it gives you the how and why on charisma.
The author is the only character.
