Good practical advice

A good book with very practical advice. I was not 100% satisfied because I am looking for deeper psychological analysis, but this book gives great advice on everyday situations. I am yet to find a more practical book.

Fundamental but Practical

David Lieberman provides a fresh, but practical perspective on influencing. As a behavioral scientist his work is however founded in sound principles and cutting edge thinking. A truely helpful book.

How to Manipulate Anyone!

This book can help anyone willing to practice its principles be a more gregarious personality. It is not just for mouse-hearted individuals seeking to become lions--this book also has some practical advice for the rest of us. While I wouldn't dare to use everything in this book, it is useful knowledge to have.

Some practical advice offered

I am the type of person that can get stuck in a conversation every now and then, baffled as to what the proper response may be. This book offers very precise things to say in sticky situations and/or approaches for times when there is something to be gained and you are unsure how to do it. It would be better if the book was longer and more explanatory though.

This book was disappointing. A bit on the common sense side. it lays out tactics that most of us know and practice subconciously anyway. (ie.. how to tell if someone is lying to you). this book does not deliver on its promise. save your money.

Designed for women

The tips are solid, however it doesn't go beyond the comon sense. Maybe a couple of pages are worthy. It's one of those audio books that you don't feel like listening again. In general it is more oriented to women.

iceing on a terd

This is just another book to try to teach people to change their personality in order to gain popularity. This book sucks. If you want substance, try The 7 Habbits.

This is a awesome book. No wasteful filler as in so many other books of this type, just the facts. Great stuff... Works like a charm!

I bought this book in error. Stupid me. So I listened to it since I paid for it. This book is so predictable. The information provided was all plain common sense items. Nothing new. And the narrator - it sounded like I was listening to a 50's instruction tape. Save your money or your credits. If you really want some worth while information, buy a Wayne Dyer or Deepak Choopra and try a more spiritual approach rather than trying to manipulate people.
