EXCELLENT!

So impressed with this book, took a bit fo a chance on it but I am so so glad I did as I know for a fact it has helped me massively improved my conversation and general social skills. Until this book I never realised quite how much I was doing wrong, this was a real (life changing) eye opener for me!

Loved it

Enjoyed and found the whole book valuable but I particularly liked the stuff on body language and it was different from what I had read in the past. Putting it all to great use lately

Highly effective.

The skills and tips given in this book, I found to be highly effective. I guess everyone is different, but to me, I find conversation FLOWS easier now and I have a lot more confidence in social situation, something I was perhaps lacking a little of in the past. I loved the sections on body language, I am shocked at how effective this can be

Finally, something that makes sense

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would and I have - why? Because it actually makes sense! So many of these books are full of utter nonsense that is impossible to understand but this one is laid out in such a unique way. It all made perfect sense and is already proving to have a positive impact on my life!

Took a chance

Saw this book mentioned in a youtube video and took a bit of a chance on it and im very grateful I did because it already helped me get thru (and really do well!) at a family wedding this weekend, something I was dreading as it was so full of people I didn't know. I was able to strike up conversations, hold small talk and really excel.

One I really liked

First book in a while that I actually really liked. I can find some conversation / social situations quite difficult so this book was a welcome guide and gave me a lot of "tools" to help handle different situations.

Taught me a lot

Taught me a lot I didn't previously know or understood, was well laid out and superbly narrated, so I am a happier customer.

Learning new (or forgotten) skills

Not only did I learn a heap of new stuff, I also got a good and clear reminder of skills and conversation tips I had forgotten from the past. A very valuable book I have already listened to twice now.

Wasn’t sure at first but ended up loving it

As i said in my headline, I wasn’t sure at first. I was a little diubious simply as I have tried similar books to this and i thought it might be the same thing again - but, by the time i got to the end, I am happy to say I was proven wrong! This is a very different book. Practical, easy to follow and valuable. I found it very very motivating which is what I needed.

Using this everyday

Great tips - I suffer from shyness and sometimes low self-esteem, especially with small talk and social situations but I already feel a lot more calm and confident about these situations only 2 days after getting this book.
