Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People, written and read by Vanessa Van Edwards.

Do you wish you could decode people? Do you want a formula for charisma? Do you want to know exactly what to say to your boss, your date or your networking partner? You need to know how people work.

As a human behaviour investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards studies the hidden forces that drive our behaviour patterns in her lab - and she's cracked the code. In Captivate she shares a wealth of shortcuts, systems and behaviour hacks derived from her research, to help you take charge of interactions at work and at home. You'll learn how to execute a social game plan to navigate any social situation; how to speed-read faces for seven universal 'microexpressions' that can be used to predict people's emotions; and much more besides. When you understand the laws of human behaviour, you can get along with anyone. With Vanessa's help you will never interact in the same way again.

Includes a bonus PDF of quizzes, graphs and illustrations.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Life Changing"

    I don't usually write reviews but this audiobook was too good for me not to. I've really enjoyed listening to Vanessa's friendly and welcoming tone.

    The guidance she provides is so easy to grasp and very practical. I've already started implementing these into my daily life and noticed the difference.

    I highly recommend this book for anyone that could benefit from a direction on how to master social situations!

    For anyone who wants to improve how they communicate with others and enrich the quality of their relationships both personal and professional, l recommend that you purchase this audiobook. I also purchased the actual book and look forward to utilising further learning material via the science of people website. Thank you, Vanessa Van Edwards.

    "There is a science to people"

    Found the book to be full of lessons and very structured. It is hard to follow it as well as reading because of the various exercises throughout so I intend to go to the supplementary material and actually run through it to retain and use some what is taught. Overall, it's a good hack into the human mind.
