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.

    "I did not find it useful."
    What disappointed you about How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less?

    I did not like the fact that you had to do some excerises with other people, I was working alone. I think we all want to be liked and we all need to work on our social skills and although there were a few tips to help oneself, I did not think there were many that really helped.


    What was most disappointing about Nicholas Boothman’s story?

    n/a


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicholas Boothman’s performances?

    maybe


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less?

    I did think some of the exercises were silly...


    Any additional comments?

    "Unsatisfactory"
    What would have made How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less better?

    Actual information


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nicholas Boothman again?

    Very unlikely


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I didn't pay much attention to the narration. This is a non-fiction work. I was listening for information. The narrator seemed okay. Didn't get in the way, and conveyed the information it was supposed to convey.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    A good suggestion here and there, I suppose.


    Any additional comments?

    The book's content arises primarily from the theories of Neurolinguistic Programming, a discredited, pseudo-scientific theory of thinking styles.
