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.
This was a great book giving insight into how to be more charismatic. As an individual looking to have more influence and leadership in the workplace, I believe this book was able to provide solid ideas on how to "build" charisma. I did find that listening on audio was a little slow so I wouldn't recommend listening at night, unless you need something to help you sleep!
I have listened to this book twice. I have really enjoyed this book, and, while putting it's advice to use, it has helped me in many ways.
Lisa did a great job of reading this book.
Effective Communication, and How it can Improve your Life
I'm not sure about helping with charisma. But, I speak regularly, and have gotten many more compliments, just by implementing some of the basic suggestions put forth in this book. I have listened twice and will listen again in a few months, just to catch some things I may have missed or may still need to add.
I really love this book. It's full of practical information that I was able to start implementing right away. I found the suggestions so great that I played a bit of it in my car while my daughter was riding along, and she also found bits of advice that she loved. Some of the suggestions are basic, some I've heard before, but it was great to have so much wonderful guidance all in one place, and I'll refer to this one again.
Four star book with 1 deduction for editing and one for narration.
Pleasant voice, even paced reading, & wrong book for this narrator.
The content is more defining than the editing and narration. During several chapters of this book on charisma the narrator was remarkably uncharismatic.
The editing between paragraphs created a myriad of runonsentancesthatconfusesubjects.
I found myself concentrating and wanting to take notes in order to remember the ideas presented and unable to recall the lessons moments after hearing them (a keystones failure of a charisma enhancing book).
This book is a great "flea market find" worth the money if you plan on doing the work to get something from it, but not the user ready 'open and go' format one might want.
