The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism | [Olivia Fox Cabane]

The Charisma Myth: How Anyone Can Master the Art and Science of Personal Magnetism

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.

    "Upside surprise"
    Any additional comments?

    I began the book with low hopes, desiring merely a new concept or two. I listened twice (VERY rare for me) and downloaded the accompanying PDF. I have applied her techniques in subtle ways, even applying them to areas outside the scope of the book. Good book. Well presented.

    "For anyone interested in success"

    At first glance it comes off as a typical self help book. Butt, after only a chapter it becomes clear that this is a book filled with logically and scientifically sounds theories and advice on how to control and understand the way the human psyche works in interaction with the world and people surrounding it.
