Publisher's Summary

Everyone aspires to live a life that is fulfilling. This is through building meaningful relationships and enjoying the benefits that the environment around them offers. This requires someone who has mastered the art of socializing and that has various skills which people have to acquire.

Some of the socializing skills are natural and inherent in our nature as humans. Others, however, have to be learned and acquired through practice. Some people are unable to draw on their social skills and interact well with other people within their environs.

This audiobook looks at the way people have to interact with others by practicing various social skills. These skills are sometimes lacking in certain people while other people have certain limitations in their personalities that render them unable to interact.

Social skills entail learning how to start and sustain conversations. There are people that we often meet and since we do not know how to create conversations, the moments we encounter them are cold and sometimes awkward. This audiobook addresses some of the awkward moments in the process of socializing and interactions. By listening to the audiobook, you realize why the interaction has awkward moments and how our lack of certain attributes to facilitate interaction contributes to these moments.

Steps are highlighted and well elaborated on how to ensure that we are able to trigger our social skills in interacting with others. Those who have been having difficulty with keeping communications going for long will benefit from this audiobook as they will realize being sociable and enjoying being in social situations does not require you to have any special gifts.

There is a section dedicated to highlighting the use of body language. This is because someone usually sends signals before they can even talk to us verbally. Inability to read people’s signals through their body language can make us be irrelevant when we approach people.

The audiobook also focuses on how to make friends. This s particularly for those who have problems with initiating friendship. This book takes a dig into how people can interact in a way that can cultivate mutual friendship. The steps and skills that have to be exercised to this end are well elaborated to show you that making friends does not require someone who is talented at it. Everyone can make friendships if they follow the steps and start to exercise the skills discussed in this book.

The issue of social anxiety and shyness is also addressed. This is for those who have strong fear for situations that require them to speak before people or interact with others. Steps to overcome the fear and develop courage and esteem are highlighted to make it possible for anyone to overcome the limitation.

The way to apply these skills to dating circumstances as well has been given out. This is as a way to help people be able to develop relationships and learn how to build intimacy. Skills of keeping a relationship going are described in a clear way in this book.

If you are seeking to improve your social skills, you have to read this book. It evokes self-reflection, creates a need for action and opens the gateways of possibility in social interactions.

Brilliant book !

Excellent. It adds structure to social interaction, confirms what you have been doing right, and illuminates what wrong you have been doing wrong, and how to do it right. As a person who deals mostly with computers, this is exactly what I needed.

The best book ever!

The best book ever! So practical. So like a good friend, not like a motivational speaker. The author spells out exactly what I’ve been through and I hope to be able to write a book like this one day.

An awesome listen

I enjoyed listen this book. I always considered myself an extrovert, I found that I'm pretty insensitive and will dominate conversations. I'm eager to apply some of techniques this book has discussed to improve my future relationships.

I am grateful for this book

I was looking for a book to give to my daughter to help her with her social skills. She is 14 and does not have a diagnosis, but had shared with me that she struggles with certain social skills.

I've listen a few self-improvement books

I've listen a few self-improvement books over the years and this one is by far up there with the best, if not the best. This book strikes the right balance between pragmatism, quantum science, esoteric concepts all blended into a solid and actionable message. Great listen and highly recommended!

I bought this for my son

I bought this for my son because he has been having a really hard time at school recently. Brilliant book for both adults and children. And i hope that it makes him more compassionate to those around him as well since the stories involve a variety of kids involving different circumstances.

Social Skills Improved!

This book could just as well be entitled: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Improving Your Social Skills. I say that because of the methodical, thoughtful and flowing way the author guides us through the complex maze of social interactions in which we find ourselves.

Good book to listen.

This listen is extraordinary for individuals battling with mingling. It completely clarifies the do's and don't of associating to help individuals gain trust in what they are doing in social circumstances.There is a special significance in the listen that will play a very useful role for us. This listen shows us how to be consistent with ourselves and how to demonstrate our actual identity with the general population we met regular. Many thanks to the author for giving us such a beautiful listen.

One of the best book.

One of the best books on social skill improvement I've ever listen. I want to improve my Social skills, the reason why I listen this book. And it did not fail me indeed. This book is way more helpful than I thought it would be. I consider myself moderately educated on social media strategy and yet I am still learning from his book. I have learned tons of information about how to improve Social skills.

Pretty Helpful

The book is very helpful up to about 3 quarters of the way through. The last bit is pretty much worthless information about being courageous.

An entertaining and useful book!

I enjoy listening this book. The style is like a dear friend is writing to you, trying to help you out of your social anxiety. There was some hints that I think could be use for other areas in my life.
