Publisher's Summary

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.

Please note: The accompanying workbook for this title is available at http://AskOlivia.com/book/exercises/.

    "A must-read book if you want to be more effective"

    I was so impressed by this book that I've bought multiple copies to give to others, including my daughter. I own both audible and hardcover versions. I don't normally do that. I also frequently reference it when I'm going presentation and other types of training. I also loved that I was able to immediately start applying the principles it lays out. A well-crafted book and I can't wait for her new book on innovation to come out. It doesn't really have a "story" per se so I didn't give it full stars for that.

    "Highly recommend"
    Would you listen to The Charisma Myth again? Why?

    Yes. The book had so many pearls I took 7 pages of notes (typed, single space)


    What about Lisa Cordileione’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was easy to listen to


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It had a lot of information that I had to think about, as well as some exercises to do so it is better to fully understand one section before moving on the next.

    "Surprisingly good"

    "Great content"

    The content, exercises and concepts are gold. The performance isn't bad but didn't grip me much. I enjoyed this and would recommend it.

    "Very useful on many levels"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Some excellent tips and some research to back it up. She could have mentioned more of the research but I think her focus was to do less citation and more anecdotes. Very sound advice and I think it works.
