Publisher's Summary

Do you want to boost your people skills to easily build rapport with anyone? Or just avoid uncomfortable misunderstandings and awkward situations?

If you (1) have trouble speaking so others listen and respect you, and (2) never know what to say or how to act around new people, that feeling of dread and despair isn't something you have to live with. People Tactics is your key to social intelligence and better relationships.

Discover exactly what enables someone to call themselves a "people person".

People Tactics is a book of action that allows you to truly understand others and speak their language. You'll learn how to apply great charm to make new friends and engage old ones. It will fundamentally change your mindset on how to approach people and give you the specific words and phrases to do it.

People will listen when you speak because you'll always know what to say and how to say it.

Whether it's winning at work politics, making new friends, or strengthening current relationships, people skills are your quickest and surest route to success - no matter the situation.

More than what I expected

Reading some of the reviews here, I didn't expect to receive much information as I did after going through the whole book. I've read several books about interpersonal relationships, this was an easy read that wasn't boring, and only one of which I plan to read again and again as a refresher. I found the information useful, and parts which I have tried as experiments on my own, are truthful in the outcome.

Lots of statements with little substance

basic concept of looking within to improve communication. very little substance or examples to help someone actually apply what is discussed

Nothing new here.

Not a thing. This author is just a writing machine... and would probably be helped by doing more reading. There just is nothing new here. If you have never read any self-help anything, this might be worth the effort. Otherwise...

Clear and to the point - very helpful

As I was listening to people tactics I found all the information to be delivered in an easy and understandable way.

This book really covers as the title suggests "people tactics" that can and will help you practically have better results in building relationships.

I would have appreciated a few more stories in the book to make the lessons learnt easier to remember.

Overall helpful and thorough. Not a lot of new information on the topic of gaining influence and getting people to like you, but it delivers a strong punch of the best tactics out there all in one place.

Thanks for your work Patrick.
