Publisher's Summary

We've all seen them: the people at work and at parties who always have a crowd around them. They are funny and smart and have everyone's ear. People gather to hear what they have to say and bring friends from rooms away to meet with them. To those who do not have such an easy time socializing with other people, they seem almost magical.

Have you always wanted to talk more easily to others without your shyness and social anxiety getting in your way? Do you want to know how to communicate better with others at the workplace, and to have your coworkers and bosses to respond to and respect you more? Do you want to learn how to navigate social events with ease, meeting and learning about new people, making friends, and gaining valuable business and personal contacts?

In How to Talk to Anyone: 21 Tips for Instant Rapport, you will learn how to strike up a conversation with anyone, anytime and anywhere. Whether at work or out on the town, with coworkers or with casual acquaintance, you will learn how to get people talking and keep them talking. You will learn how to make a good first impression on anyone, how to take the initiative when starting a conversation, and what questions to ask. You will also learn about unseen social forces that affect people and conversations, such as body language. How to Talk to Anyone: 21 Tips for Instant Rapport discusses the intricacies of giving a genuine smile and meaningful eye contact.

Master the art of small talk - an often unpleasant and dreaded task - and how to make it fun and informative for both you and anyone you talk to. Learn what questions to ask to keep people interested and talking, and how to make people feel comfortable talking to you. You will learn to get people talking about themselves (many people's favorite subject!), how to learn their passions and motivations, and to use what you learn about them to benefit yourself.

Meh

I'm sorry to say that this book was not impressive to me at all. It might be for someone who is a hermit who never leaves home and has never had a conversation with a stranger. But if you are a business person or are just looking to increase your communication "game", then this is not the book for you.

It's a lot of common sense tips, like make eye contact and avoid talking about politics and religion.

I really wanted to like this book, but I feel like I wasted my credit.

Meeting new people is now FUN

After reading this book, I have gained a newfound appreciation for how much fun it can be to meet new people. I am definitely more of an introvert and value my time alone, however I am learning that I don’t have to be shy in social situations when I am around people.

Politeness Always Wins

Politeness always wins, but you have to know how to take control of the conversation. Loved the tactics in this book, they really work well. FORDS is a great method to remember as well.
