What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.
The Charisma Myth is a mix of fun stories, sound science, and practical tools. Cabane takes a hard scientific approach to a heretofore mystical topic, covering what charisma actually is, how it is learned, what its side effects are, and how to handle them.

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.
It ranks as a definite favorite. It is a stand-out book.
It started a little slow, but then the author went on to give EXCEPTIONAL advice.
I would highly recommend this book! Nearly anyone could benefit from this book.
What a fantastic book! Olivia has managed to de-construct the elements of charisma and explain them with the help of fascinating stories and the results of ground breaking science. I especially liked how she provides a ton of useful examples and exercises to help solidify each major topic; after applying these, I can honestly say that I noticed a big difference in my own level of charisma and confidence in general.
It was fascinating to learn that the secret to great focus and charisma can start with your toes!
This is a great book that gives practical examples of what you can do to change your thoughts and mindset. I have read and listened to several books and this is one of the best!
Charisma Myth is the Title however it is so much more than just charisma. Finally a book that actually makes sense and is not so hard to understand!
If you need more sleep this is the book for you. Otherwise, I'd steer clear.
It is all things I already knew.
The whole book ,if you dout me go read it and see how poor it is.
The pleasant narrator's voice, and the author offered several short but effective therapy to help increase charisma level.
I'll update after listen to the ending.
I decided not to keep this book is because it will derail me from the right track. Thanks the author did lots of research about human being, history, culture and etiquette and offered lots of exercises. With that said, I'll still return the book is because it somehow will make me want to use everything in the book to serve my favor instead of God's favor, and eventually I know I'll be fooled by my own understanding and my smart. I'll write more in the future if more comes up.
