Good advice but same stuff everyone says. It had a very disingenuous feel to it. Like the book was written not to help share an important insight but simply to write a book. ( )

An informative book. However, i dont think i learn much about charisma to put it into practice. just telling me the difference between political charisma and kindness chariama did little for me if not enough tips are taught. Also lacking that extra zinger: special story/technique to become a 4 star book for me.

My personal opinion is Olivia was quite young at the time when she wrote the book (possibly age 31?) and she didn't really have much trouble socialising in the first place, to really learn much about charisma. The ideas in the book are mostly theoretical and from other books/courses and the book is not funny in anyway. Practical tips to improve on your charisma are also lacking. (Harsh opinion yes but I rather have an author who mentioned stuff like 'Just be yourself/open yourself up to new ideas/friends etc) ( )

Great book on how to present yourself better.

First part of the book is about the 3 Core Concepts:
1. Power to display Authority
2. Presence to display Trust
3. Warmth to display Kindness

The second part of the book is about how and when to apply those core concepts.

Related to: How to Win Friends & Influence People
Because: It builds on those concepts, such as being a good listener. ( )

Good information. Author breaks charisma down into a few areas:
Presence (being present in the moment, focusing on the other person)
Warmth (goodwill, empathy, compassion)
Power (confidence)

The author suggests finding an "area of specialty" for your charisma:
Focus (presence)
Visionary (inspirational)
Kindness (warmth and confidence)
Authority (status and confidence)

She also talks about self-compassion, which is an important step in developing warmth and confidence.

The book is an easy read, with key points listed at the end of each chapter. There are also exercises to help you work on a specific area. You can skim through it and get the main points in a couple hours, or read more carefully and try each exercise for a more thorough experience.

A solid book on the topic. I would have preferred something a little more dense, with various theories and research to support/refute them. This is more of a quick "how-to" book. That's probably what most people need.

It's a little light for my personal taste. I feel like the same information could have been conveyed in a magazine article, and it's frustrating to scan through pages looking for important information. But a book earns more profits, I'm sure. It's capitalist inefficiency - the most useful, streamlined version of a product won't make as much money, so consumers get the bloated, lumbering one. It's true of a lot of self-help books.

There's also a rather weak work-around for atheists in some exercises ("If you don't believe in God, imagine the universe as a benevolent being, and ask it for help...") It took many years of hard work to rid myself of toxic religious beliefs. Imagining a "benevolent being" is likely to drag me back into a mental state I don't want to be in. I wish authors with a belief in God would have more respect for those of us who don't want to follow the path of faith--or some generic, watered-down version of faith.

But overall, a useful book for those of us that don't naturally have charisma. Not much new material for people who read sites like Lifehacker, but it created connections between concepts that I hadn't thought of before. ( )
