    "Quite Helpful"

    This book contains very useful information on meeting and socializing with others. If you are shy, or just seem to have trouble expressing yourself, I would definitely recommend this book. Keep in mind, though, that the suggestions given by the author will take some practice. You're not going to become an instant "People Magnet" as soon as you finish listening to her advice. However, I can say with a fair amount of certainty that your people skills will improve almost instantly when you begin applying the lessons given by the author. Although the book is written by a woman, she gives an equal amount of quality suggestions for both men and women regarding our interaction with the opposite sex. The only reason I didn't rate this book a 5, was the excessive amount of "fluff" which added little more than length to the book. Other than that, I thought the author did an excellent job of both writing and narrating "How to Be a People Magnet".

    "The book was great"

    I thought the book was interesting, informative and full of useful information and insight. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author's voice was not at all unpleasant. I have to wonder if the other reviewers downloaded the wrong format or something. If the title interests you - don't let the complaints about the author's voice put you off.

    "More Than Candy Coating"

    On my first listen, I heard the author's speaking style and wrote her off as a silly person. I was very wrong. I decided to listen to it again a few weeks later, mostly because I was tired and thought I might doze while reading. I didn't get a nap though because I actually started thinking about what she was saying and not how she was saying it. Before long I was intrigued and began to look for ideas I could use at a meeting the next day. I decided to try the ideas as if I was playing a little game, and that helped me to overcome some of my shyness with people who I perceived as smarter and more polished than me. With the ideas I found, I was able to talk to a woman who had previously ignored my suggestions and got the attention of a man who introduced me to a friend of his who could help me get my project off the ground. This book is sort of like an M&M candy: you miss the good stuff if all you taste is the candy coating on the outside.

    "Full of insight"

    This book is full of insight on interpersonal communication and relationships. While it does give some no-brainer advice and insights, the author does an excellent job of explaining the reasons why the advice or insight is true based on psychological and scientific evidence. I would have rated this a 5 star, but as other reviewers have said, I had a very hard time getting through the first couple of chapters because of the authors voice and tone, but once you get past that it is very provocative, educational, and entertaining.

    "Absolute torture."

    This title seemed to be the audio book analogue of Chinese water torture to me. The narrator has THE MOST ANNOYING WHINY VOICE I HAVE EVER HEARD. She keeps shrieking things like "HUG THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU!!!" I swear if she was next to me I would have choked her just to make her stop. As for content, I can't really comment b/c my brain couldn't hear anything besides her glass-shattering delivery, but it seemed to be commense sense/no-brainer type advice -- e.g. give a firm handshake, smile, etc. Alas, another wasted credit for me.

    "Author's pity story"

    Low on insight, the reading was annoying, and the book was filled with obvious life observations. I felt like I was listening to a pity story from the author the majority of the time. Actually, I couldn't make it all the way through the book. Don't waste your time...

    "Not an inspiring book"

    The book does have few tips and tricks but overall the flow of the book is not coherent and it is not inspirational or motivational. If you really keep your interest in reading the book, then you may pickup few good points. But I lost my interest half way through the book and found it difficult to complete the book.

    "Handy tips"

    You can become a people magnet if you follow the book to the letter. Otherwise you can do what I am doing and reap the benefits. Pick one thing out of it at a time and start using it.

    "Simple, straightforward life-skills"

    I approached this with a degree of cynisism and was pleasantly suprised by the straightforward, unpatronising delivery and how practical the advice was in terms of simple steps to incoporate into everyday life, which do really work and make a difference.

    "Boring tand annoying to listen to"

    Wouldnt recommend this on account of its content and boring/annoying presentation. Much better stuff out there on this topic than this.

    "Not as good as Dale!!!"

    Sorry, but the insincere chuckles and patronising 'children's entertainer' tone of this audio detracted from what is probably a very good text. Shame, I just couldn't listen to her voice. The Dale Carnegie 'How to Win Friends and Influence People' is much easier on the ears!!!

    "hmm,.... a little out of topic"

    interesting , not that applicable for some of the points , she should be more precise and more clear with her techniques and not stray out the the topic too often , its people magnet , and she stray into some other topics time and time again .

    well , not too bad .. not too good , but enjoyable and there's things to learn anyhow
