In How the World Sees You, author and personal branding expert Sally Hogshead applies the principles of fascination triggers to understanding "personality brands" - how individuals use different triggers to influence, persuade, and captivate others. You already know how you see yourself and the world. But how does the world see you? If you want to be heard and remembered, if you want people to take action on your ideas and opinions, then you need to get the full picture.

This book and the accompanying assessment helped me find a focus to base my social frame around and helped me identify areas where I was less comfortable, where my attempts to engage and fascinate others in less fruitful ways was costing me rather than helping me. Only quibble is the characterization of introversion as a negative quality, which is a misapprehension

At some point every one of us embarks on a journey to find love. We meet people, date, get into and out of relationships, all with the hope of finding someone with whom we share a deep connection. This seems standard now, but it's wildly different from what people did even just decades ago. Single people today have more romantic options than at any point in human history.

Candide and his tutor Pangloss travel the globe trying to follow the philosophy "All is for the best in this, the best of all possible worlds". However, they are stung and let down at every turn, being robbed, tortured, and ridiculed, amongst other trials. On hearing about their often disasterous travels, a listener feels unfortunately less than empathetic, and can't help themselves laughing out loud at this very funny account of the trail our optimistic travellers take.

Models is the first book ever written on seduction as an emotional process rather than a logical one, a process of connecting with women rather than impressing them. It's the most mature and honest guide on how a man can attract women without faking behavior, without lying and without emulating others. A game-changer.

Noble's perspective carries extra legitimacy for concepts that can come across as boorish coming from male dating coaches. It's like permission to approach women for those caught in the trap of believing that it's bad to be sexually attracted to them. She sheds light on women's psychology in a way that leads to appreciation of women rather than a cynical conquest paradigm that comes from some male pua types. Highly recommended for its practical and insightful presentation of concrete and usable information. This book is excellent.

Narrator mistakenly said 'casual relationship' when he should have said 'causal relationship' and 'smile' instead of 'simile' this was consistent and bugged me quite a bit. Otherwise, excellent production.

The content of the audiobook is superlative. Extremely helpful and educational.
