Publisher's Summary

Summary of Presence by Amy Cuddy | Includes Analysis

Preview:

Have you ever bombed a job interview or fumbled an elevator pitch? Based on a number of social psychology studies, Presence is a book by Harvard Business School professor Amy Cuddy that encourages people to stop worrying about the impressions they make on others and instead use simple tools like body language to change the way they feel about themselves. Presence shows how, by accessing one's personal power, an individual can become bolder and more confident in challenging situations like job interviews, business pitches, or even relationship breakups.

Achieving presence occurs when people stop focusing on what others think of them and instead focus on the changes they are making in themselves. While understanding this presence can certainly help in public speaking and presentations, someone with a presence that communicates quiet confidence might also be viewed as a better listener, which is a key attribute in any organization....

Please note: This is summary and analysis of the book, and not the original book.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Summary of Presence by Amy Cuddy | Includes Analysis?

    I would take out chapters 1, 2 and 16, 17 since it is only intro and a lot of mentions of Instaread.
