Publisher's Summary

Whether meeting a new client or bumping into a potential mate, you only have a few seconds to make a favorable impression. Is that really possible? Author Nicholas Boothman, a lecturer and licensed master practitioner of neurolinguistic programming, believes yes! He introduces a revolutionary approach to face-to-face communication that will help anyone succeed at making meaningful, and immediate, connections.

Whether selling, managing, job hunting, negotiating, pitching an idea, applying for law school, joining a new group, or on your knees with a marriage proposal, the secret of success is based on connecting with other people. And the most powerful new idea for making connections is revealed, step by step, in Nicholas Boothman's breakthrough program of rapport by design. Easily learned, it will help you make the best of any relationship's most important moment: those first 90 seconds.

Never again let shyness get in the way of an appointment or interview. Or leave the making of an important contact to chance. Or find yourself tongue-tied or distracted in social situations. The key, according to Boothman and his plan for face-to-face communication, is simple: the way to make a person like you is to make yourself be like that person, if only for the 90 seconds or less it takes to establish rapport. Learn the power of a Really Useful Attitude, the secrets of voice tone and body language, the difference between "opening up" words and "closing down" words. And reinforcing all of these skills is knowing how to read another person's sensory preference; most of us are Visual people, some are Kinesthetic, and a few are Auditory. So when you say, "I see what you mean" to a Visual, you're really speaking his or her language. And then you're on your way.

    "No value add..."
    Has How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm more of the Dale Carnegie type...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A very breathy voice... hard to follow.


    Any additional comments?

    Mildly entertaining. Didn't finish listening to.

    "I really can't understand the narrator"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book seemed like it would be great, but the narrator is hard to understand. English accents are great but he reads kind of fast. Also, if I try to slow down th audible it gets echo-de.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Story content was ok


    How could the performance have been better?

    Need better narration. I had to replay many sections.
