Publisher's Summary

Small changes for big results in your social life, presence, and relationships. Learn how to be captivating, memorable, and magnetic. 

Likability is one of the most important traits you’ll ever learn. It’s more important than your intelligence, looks, status, wealth, prestige, or education. Likability is the true currency of life. 

Do you seem to fade from people’s memory as soon as the conversation ends? Banish those feelings of rejection and dejection.  

Principles of Likability investigates the aspect of human nature that affects us the most - what makes us drawn to someone without our even realizing it? This is what we strive for everyday, and it can make or break our moods. Likability - what is it and how can we achieve it consistently? Use the principles laid out in this book and you’ll wonder no more. 

Make a powerful first impression and build a thriving social circle.  

Patrick King is an internationally best-selling author and social skills coach. His writing draws from a variety of sources, from scientific research, academic experience, coaching, and real life experience. He has taught the art of becoming likable for years and only writes about real tactics that have been proven to work. 

Utilize the subconscious causes of likability and charm and learn about:

  • Simple everyday decisions to be more likable
  • Why conventional advice about focusing on others is flawed
  • How to actually listen - a unique and different approach
  • What value has to do with your likability and charm
     

Become pursued and sought out instead of ignored and forgotten and learn:

  • Why being shallow isn’t always bad, and is actually valuable
  • What abrasiveness is and why it’s more powerful than likability
  • How to become worthy of being liked as second nature

Likability has the power to take you anywhere you want in life.

flawed concept with a definite tone

first of the author has no concept that his entire foundation is built on a basis that is heavily shaded by the local culture which makes large parts of the book irrelevant or borderline unusable.
secondly, if you like me have introverted tendencies and hoped this book could help with that the advice it gives boils down to, stop being like that...

Steve convey the content very well and should be commended for making this book enjoyable despite the content being lackluster
