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!
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.
The book is about interacting warmly with others, but includes other self-help topics about controlling yourseful in difficult situations. I don't plan to follow the author's step by step plan, but the book really made me think about several things I can change about myself. I plan to reread it more thoroughly and do some of the exercises.
The only negative I have is that it is a little padded with information and exercises that are found in most self-help books, but there is enough on-topic to think about to make this a recommended listen.
I've been intrigued by the topic of charisma for some time now. So, when I saw this I had to give it a listen. I love how charisma itself is broken down into 4 main types. The book is full of tools and visualizations that are easy to apply everyday, I have lots of bookmarks and I look forward to continuing to practice them.
I have an eclectic taste in books: my fave would be historical fiction (Bernard Cornwell, Ken Follett, etc.) but I've been getting in deep to biographies lately (I recently finished one on John D. Rockefeller and now I'm mid-stream on George Washington). I thought I'd roll the dice to and see what this book was about. I got maybe 20 minutes in and couldn't take anymore. This is the only book I've actually stopped without finishing (usually I'll plow ahead even when I don't enjoy the book bc I was raised to finish what you start). I just couldn't continue on with this book. It was very obviously psuedo-scientific. Couch dubious "studies" as an authority and then repeat the same point over-and-over until you just can't state it again. Then repeat it 5 more times.
Absolutely. If it resembles a self-help book, count me out.
Make narrators voice less annoying. Maybe that's unfair. The content was remarkably bad and that could color my opinion of the narrator.
Don't buy this book.
No. It should be READ so you can go back to emphasize actions to take and points the author was giving.
It was clear on how charisma could be learned/faked depending on one's goals.
I didn't listen through the whole thing because I realized I needed a printed copy instead and was kind of bored as I listened more as well.
