Charisma and Social Skills

I really genuinely loved this book. I only leave reviews on occasion but this one was too good not to say something. Charisma is something I have struggled with for a long time but now it feels like my eyes have been opened - I finally GET it.

Charisma

Charisma is SO vital to communication but something that is often overlooked as silly or just for flirting.
This book explains, in an easy to listen to but engaging fashion, just how vital charisma is and how to use it in life to be a more sociable and likeable person.

The ultimate guide to charisma

Perfect book.

It wasn't so short that it didnt contain all the info needed but it also was not so long it was full of fluff and filler.

Narrator was engaging throughout and audio quality was superb.

This is a genuinely very interesting guide to all things related to charisma which is so far having major positive effects on my life.

Guide to Charisma

This is my review of The Charisma Guide: just finished it a few minutes ago. I dont often leave reviews but I just had to this time. One of the best books on communication I have ever read or heard. Proper charisma is not easy but it CAN be obtained.

Charisma book

I have tried many books on the subject of social skills, conversation skills, charisma, being more likeable etc - this is the ONLY one I could ever recommend! So good, packed full of vital info, no filler. Loved it.

Genuinely excellent

As useful in my personal life as it was at work, this book changed a lot for me. I was previously a bit of a shy person but this book gave me the confidence to tackle social situations in a totally different way.

Incredible. Best book in the past year!

I have seen two reviews of this, one mention on a podcast, one mention on YouTube and two friends recommended it...so it was time to take the plunge.

I was a little dubious at first as I have tried various other books on charisma and communication skills but really, this is the best so far.

Fresh, modern, ORIGINAL, easy to follow - the perfect guide to charisma, confidence, social skills, small talk, assertiveness and much more.

Highly highly recommended.

Interesting but Basic

Many interesting points were discussed however most of which we were already aware of. Great book if you have not read other books on human behaviour and confidence before.

Low level generic insights into Charisma

This is my second book on Charisma...the Charisma Myth really piqued my interest. However this one seems to be of a very low level, providing generic answers and even lower anecdotes. First anecdote about someone who wasn't doing well with her presentations, did some mindfullness and meditation and now doing a lot better in her presentations. I have summarised briefly but that is essentially the general gist. One could even argue that the anecdote is about improving presentations, not even about charisma. However even if it is about charisma then there are very few specifics.

Secondly the the first chapter is straight out of the Charisma Myth but without the research which th Charisma Myth brings.

Lastly, I'm unsure as to why it has received such high reviews and wonder if I am missing something...I can only guess it's because there is nothing to disagree with and it all sounds good...being told you need a positive outlook will impact your charisma is no doubt true...however other books will tell you the particular techniques to do so. For example the book talks about meditation and offers some techniques...technique one is focus on your breath. However it lacks how long you should focus on each breath, whether there are different breathing techniques (which there are), when to use different breathing technique and what each different breathing technique is designed to do.

In short I'd say there is little reference to research or specific techniques to help you increase your charisma as far as I can see.

Charisma and communication skills guide

If you read one book in your life...make it this one! I listened to this book three times in a row when I first heard it and still want to revisit it to remind myself of different segments. A LOT is packed into 3.5 hours here.

It is filled with heaps of useful tips and insights about how to interact with people. I found it very useful as I sometimes lack confidence...this book showed me skills and methods I can use to get over this.

After listening to it and putting some of the skills to use in both my social and work life, my life has shifted dramatically for the positive!

Narration is top class, easy to listen to yet engaging throughout.

This is a 10 out of 10 book.

Charisma, charm, confidence, sociable skills....

...conversation skills, assertiveness, small talk and so much more. I could go on, but really, if you want to be a more liked, successful person then get this book and listen to it at least twice.

5 out of 5. Recommendation from YouTube

I have seen this book recommended on YouTube, in various podcasts etc.

Not my usual thing and I was a little suspicious but gave it a go.

Got to the end and immediately wanted to listen to it all over again. THAT is how good this is.

Incredible charisma guide.

Wow this was good. It helped as much in my work life as it did for my personal life. I found it especially helpful for me as someone who lacks confidence in social situations.
