This book can change the way you interact with people in your daily life. If you want to be charismatic, this is the book you grab!!
I love audio books, fiction and nonfiction. I seem to be drawn to the Scandinavian writers and their narrators.
I was skeptical about a trait such as charisma touted as one that could be earned. I think I was wrong. The book was laid out logically and made effective use of powerful examples. Ms. Cobane should be making money hand over fist as a consultant.

This is probably the best book on personal human to human relationship management that I have ever read.
Super job, but you can tell that some portions were over dubbed much later. The dubs are at a lover volume level.
Yes...you can but I am on the second listen and will be looking forward to the third and fourth.
Really amazing good...must read.
I am a middle aged male who thinks radio is bubble gum for the brain, so I listen to books in the car. At least one a month.
Yes, this is time well spent. I would recommend this book.
It starts off good, but really drops off as the concepts that you are learning become really basic in the middle. The foundation is good.
I don't thing that I have listened to a book with more injected words. It is just too many. It is understandable that changes were made and they did not want to re-record the entire book, but the edits really add no value and it is mostly just one or two words each time. It is almost a demonic kind of injection...:)
People must believe that you have the power to effect them and if you are fully present, with warmth, you got charisma.
I was able to put the content to work immediately. I would highly recommend it be read (listened to, an ongoing debate I have with my peers) in an environment where you can write down information. I listened on my commute and feel I missed certain things. I will be listening again.
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 book has very helpful ideas for becoming for charismatic.
Pause after someone else talks so the person thinks you were listening rather than waiting to talk.
It is an interesting subject that I had not thought much about. The author has studied and is an expert on the subject of charmisa. She talks about who has it, different types, and how to get it. I'm finding it very intersting.
I think reading the book would be good too, because she refers to some charts and boxes that probably have bullet points that you miss with the audio. But I'm busy, I would never have time to read the book, so the audio is best for me.
I know I will listen to it again, there was a lot of information in there, and I'm always multi-tasking while I am listening,
The author, Olivia Fox Cabane, delivers true insights in how relationships are established and provides useful techniques to make them even stronger. Through her established expertise, she teaches how to become a better leader and a more caring individual.
For having listened to the author in an interview she gave about the book, I would have prefered if she would have done the naration herself.
Pick up this book today and start putting into practice, chapter by chapter, the differents techniques in becoming a better leader and being able to succesfully communicate one's ideas.
Maybe, but I will keep looking.
Performance was the strong point.
Not for a person like myself.
After the first few chapters I requested a refund. She is too hard left for my taste. If she is going to get in to politics, at least be bipartisan if you want bipartisan money.
