Best one so far, imo.

This is the kind of stuff I Actually wanted from my psychology courses. Is this what communications majors learn? I should've tried that instead.

This is my favorite of the 3 that I've listened to so far. And so far they're all fairly distinct. They've all contained some different actionable information to aid your success in self-improvement and people skills. I intend to keep listening.

Narration and examples in this one were solid.

I felt like the narrator was a close friend talking to me - things I needed to know but that no one told me

I really liked this book and I’ll be listening to it again and again. Lately, I have been struggling at work with my social skills. Patrick king reminds us that at the core of every situation every human wants the same thing: validation, acceptance, and acknowledgement (those might not be the exact words but you get the idea). I need to listen to it again to really get it to soak in. First time around about 3 percent stuck which to me, if a book sticks at all it is of value. All that he wrote is obviously from personal experience and not just him talking ABOUT it AT us.

Good to listen.

It was short and easy to listen. It talked through important things fast and went to main points without extra talk. Lot of good points where to focus when talking with other people. Short enough to listen multiple times if needed.

"Improve Your People Skills" indeed...

If you are looking to improve your people skills this book will most certainly help.
Even as a child I remember being uptight and awkward. Nothing with that mindset has changed since adolescence and I am almost 40 years of age. Nothing has changed until now.
So many of the principles/topics covered in this book I can relate to. The information provided has allowed me to gain new perspective on my thought processes in relation to interpersonal tact. The book has certainly given me "tools" to work on my interpersonal skills. I would recommend this book to anyone, regardless of their current level of interpersonal skills. Everyone can gain knowledge from Patrick's works.

Must read! Short but powerful !

Great book. No matter how many books you did read before about social skills, this is a good reminder and summary about all those good habits that you may have forgot.
