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.
Tons of information but I think she, Olivia Fox Cabane, could have elaborated on multiple topics and situations instead of putting it all in one book. That's why I think it could have and possibly should have been two books.
You know those satirical YouTube videos where the I make fun of self help books? This is the book they are making fun of. Author assumes audience are idiots and don't have any social skills. References method acting without knowing what it is. Shows little to know competency on multiple subjects. Wasted my time waiting to get something out of it.
