    "Based on sound scienfic principles in psychology"

    Listened to the book twice so far. Author is entertaining, informative and based on sound psychological principles.
    I am a psychologist and developed some of these skills taught by leading professors at my University. Highly recommend this book.

    "Good choice for establishing rapport"

    NLP is the basis of this book. Those who know NLP will likely know what to expect from this book. Those who don't should take a peak. NLP takes the stance that non-verbal communication such as, body language, drives people closer or further away during the early stages of the conversation. By understanding how our non-verbal communication affects those around us, we can learn to establish trust and rapport with other people. Like any self help book, you will likely have to change your current attitude toward communication to get real results from this book.

    Overall the book is well done. The author has a pleasant voice, and uses numerous stories to illustrate his examples. I would have liked more outline, structure and summaries to emphasize key points. I find it difficult to get every detail out of a story, especially an audio story. Several times, the author would end a segment by reminding the listener to review the steps in their head. But he would not do so on the audio program. The audio format makes this review difficult since it requires rewinding and re-listening to the program segment. Again, I would recommend this book to anyone desiring better connections skills.

    "Great Book!"

    I thought that this book was great and had a lot of useful information. It takes a while to digest and I have had to go back to it again, but I think that if you are looking for some instruction on how to make yourself into someone who can connect with and interact with just about anybody, this book will be a big help.

    "Surprisingly Good"

    I was skeptical about this book from the start, but it was surprisingly good! It covered basics of NLP and using your body language to make friends out of your business associates, which in turn makes you more money!

    If I were pressed to state a negative, it would be that he doesn't cover the examples well enough. He mentions briefly that "looking up and to the right or left is a trait of..." But that's not enough info to use it in everyday life.

    But all in all, I was surprisingly impressed with this excellent book!

    "Great! Great! Great! (Read it to understand)"

    I listened to this book at least 6 times, and learnt something new each time. This stuff should be taught in school. Try it. It works.

    "great greAT GREAT"

    Well worth listening to a number of times. Each listen will reveal new nuggets of information on how to connect in business. The tips are easy to put into practice and Boothman's reading style is very engaging. Great!
