Publisher's Summary

100% scientific and proven ways to make friends quickly, turn enemies into friends, gain trust, and be flat-out likable.

Some of the most interesting, shocking, and counterintuitive scientific conclusions to simply make people want to be around you.

In The Science of Likability, you'll get all that and more. I've taken 27 seminal scientific and psychological studies and broken them down, so you can use their findings to your advantage. Every piece of advice in this book to increase your social standing and likability factor is 100% backed by in-depth, peer-reviewed research.

Learn how subconsciously to make yourself seem likable, trustworthy, and intelligent.

You can get a new haircut and wardrobe, and you even learn funny jokes. But likability is something more. It's subconscious, and it's the small signs that signal our brains to let their guards down and embrace others. Learn what common sense and intuition doesn't teach you.

Analysis and insight from the best in the business.

From Freud, to Cialdini, to Pavlov, to Schachter, to Goleman, these studies are insightful, analytical, sometimes surprising, but most importantly, effective and actionable. Pair that with the insight and human intelligence factor of best-selling author and social skills coach Patrick King, and you have a guide that can be listened to equally for education, as for helpful, real advice.

Small and subtle actions, big results:

    - Chapter 1. How to Improve People's Moods.
  • Chapter 2. How to Turn Enemies into Friends.
  • Chapter 6. How to Gain Trust and Credibility.
  • Chapter 7. How to Work Well With Others.

Understand what makes people tick.

    - Chapter 8. How to be More Endearing.
  • Chapter 10. How to Lead Anyone.
  • Chapter 11. How to Avoid Being Judged.
  • Chapter 13. How to be Funny and Charismatic.

Being likable unlocks the doors to everything you want in life.

A better career? You better believe that the people with the most promotions and highest salaries aren't just the most qualified. Better love life? Being likable keeps you a potential date to anyone you want. Better relationships and friendships? Not only that, but you open the door to people wanting to be friends with you. Likability is the hidden force that makes people appear to be lucky in life, and receive more opportunities than they know what to do with.

    "Narrator made it a hard listen but content is good"

    I found it difficult to listen to the book because it sounded like it was being read by a robot. The content, however, is helpful. Highly common sense, but helpful nonetheless.

    "Short and to the Point"

    This is a quick book with zero fluff. It brings up some great points that make sense when interacting with other people. Purchasing the audio book was necessary for me because I like to listen in the car, however I was hard to listen to whoever was speaking. The person is very mono-tone. The voice was at times a distracting combination of computer-automation and radio announcer. It was actually humorous. Better to read the book than listen to it.

    "Why would someone use a voice like taht"

    It is really unconfutable. I was really looking forward to listening to this book in commute but it gives me the chivies.. I think people, actors and other professionals who have to impersonate, present, speak, broadcast or narrate should not have a tone or accent, and they should be neutral. It’s as if he is reading a cowboy story to kids or like singing something. I have friends that are broadcasters and actors and they have to take classes and practice to not have an accent.

    "Less than desirable"

    The book is a nice reminder of things one should already know and be practicing. Probably would've enjoyed it more reading paperback as the narrator is less than desirable. He sounds like a robot and doesn't inflict emotion or personality, which makes the book hard to listen to. I don't know how they pick people to read these, but if they need someone who could do a better job I'm available.

    "Eh"

    I suppose there's some good ideas in this book, and I'm glad I read it. But it isn't all that well written, contains a lot of blatant over-generalizations, and a lot of stuff you already know. And the narrator's voice really got on my nerves. For someone interested in this topic, I highly recommend the classic How to Win Friends and Influence People. It's 100 times better.
