Although this audiobook is well suited for a teenage audience, I still found it to be thoroughly entertaining. There is nothing groundbreaking in this book. It is not a literary masterpiece by any means. However, I thought the author did a great job of keeping the storyline interesting, and the narrators portrayed the characters well.

In fact, I just finished listening to this audiobook for the 2nd time, and I seldom give any audiobook a 2nd listen.

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".
