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 tips were a great mix of behavioral psychology and Dale Carnegie, mixed with some good exercises. All in all, it was a well-thought story that was about the right length.
The narrator was more patronizing than charismatic, hence 4 stars.
This book provides a good set of tools for building your own personal charisma.
While most of these exercises can be found elsewhere, it's nice to have them all in one concise little book.
I'll be recommending it.
The religious ideas and references are annoying and distracting but that's mostly only early in the book. The reading is almost comically *not* charismatic, very flat almost robotic.
However much of the advice is well considers and helpful.
This was a very good read/listen. I would recommend supplementing this book with other titles like Crucial Conversations, One minute manager series and the like.
Boring but informative. I implement the concepts, I see results. I'm disappointed the author didn't narrate the book because I would've liked to gauge her charisma level.
Nice reminders. Nothing groundbreaking. I've read many self-help, leadership, and spiritually oriented books, it doesn't have the depth I was looking for.
For more concrete and actionable information, try "Executive Toughness" or Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People".

This is not the most inspiring book I've "listened" to (and maybe it's also due to the narrator) but it's worth the time.
