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 learned a lot about myself and the ways I interact with others. I'm a very introverted person, and I'd always believed that charisma was something extroverts naturally acquired. However, after employing some of the techniques suggested in this book I noticed that peoples reactions to me changed and my conversations because more engrossing. This book is definitely worth a read.
Nothing to see here. Nothing new, what little substance there was I had seen and heard elsewhere. It's mostly happy feel good nonsense. Goes on and on about the vague feel good concept of "warmth" never anything solid. I made it 3/4 of the way through this book and stopped because it was such a waste of time. Between reading and audiobooks, I usually go through 5-12 books a month and this is the first book I have quit on in probably 5 years. I don't know what convinced me to buy it, I am usually pretty good at screening my books and avoiding stuff like this but this one got me.
Short term: lots of helpful tips for improving your interpersonal skills.
Long term: has given me the guideline to help me build myself into the charismatic individual I wish to become.
I loved this book so much I shared it with a friend before finishing it, knowing full well that what I had read was going to help him just as much, if not more, than it helped me!
I loved the book, and the many valuable tips it provides! However, the editing of the narration should be improved, especially the pausing, which in many ways contradicts the teachings of the book.
This book dragged on far longer than necessary and was a chore to finish. I concede that it had valuable information, but it was all so hidden inside numerous examples and hypotheticals that it left me waiting for some kind of grand revelation. The last half of the book was only finished so I could feel that my assessment wasn't lacking some later redemption. Go read something else, I plan on returning this!
