Some of the book is about talking to yo, but quite a bit is about other aspects of relationships. Both books are on similar topics, but written by very different authors. While Boothman’s book is short and less thorough than I would. While Boothman’s book is short and less thorough than I would have liked, I really enjoyed his personality. He seems like someone who genuinely likes meeting people, someone who finds joy in everyday life.
His friendliness and enthusiasm were contagious. And then there’s Leil Lowndes. She seems anykne a shallow, petty, artificial person which I assume is not true, but it’s the image I’m left with having read her book.

The end result of this self-improvement ought to be that I am a better person, regardless of whether I am to use Lowndes’s terminology a “Big Cat” or “Little Cat.
Afterwards, Lowndes says, “I still like Laura. She’s still my friend. But will I introduce her to any other Big Winners who might help her? I can’t take the chance. I also find it difficult to understand what, in Lowndes’s opinion, constitutes proper, caring behavior, and what is shallow and false. A prime example is her pride in a form letter that she sends to supervisors of employees who have given her good service Technique To me, a form letter just doesn’t seem the height of caring.
However, there are some really good techniques in the book, too. And there are many other pieces of advice that are very good. It’s just the overall odd tone from the author that leaves a bad taste in my mouth from the book as a whole.
Also, it seems that the pinnacle of Lowndes’s career was being a hostess on a cruise ship; she’s not married; her anecdotes are mostly about “friends. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Lril to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Refresh lwondes try again.

However, there are a few tips that countered common wisdom, such as waiting until after a caller announces their name to sound excited rather than sounding excited as soon as you answer. Some tips seem disingenuous and manipulative, such as timing your smile, crafting your compliments, and altering your behavior, but most are sound. I listened to the audiobook, which is energetically read by the author. Don’t do this more than twice a year per person, or you’ll dilute its effect. Dec 21, Laura rated it it was ok.
The woman who wrote this may have social skills, but she is also an idiot.
The book is lwil so shoddily and offensively written, I often found myself needing to take breathers between chapters. At least pages of this tome needn’t exist. Like a true conversationalist, Landes makes sure every single “trick” is accompanied by one or two vapid anecdotes. She has some good tips, but far from 92 of them.

Some just make you a stupid jerk — instructions on how to trap someone else into speaking with a bore so you can walk away?
Favorite idiotic quote- “Most Big Apple subway riders know only two things about the subway: Lowndds know nothing about the rest of the system.

How to talk to anyone | Leil Lowndes
Then let a big, warm, responsive smile flood over your face and overflow into your eyes. It will engulf the recipient like a warm wave.
The split-second delay convinces people your flooding smile is genuine and only for them. Sticky Eyes — Pretend your eye 1. When you must look away, do it ever so slowly, reluctantly, stretching the gooey taffy until the tiny string finally breaks.
Epoxy Eyes — This brazen technique packs a powerful punch. Watch your target person even when someone else is talking. No matter who is speaking, keep looking at the man or woman you want to impact. Hang by Your Teeth — Visualize a circus iron-jaw bit hanging from the frame of every door you walk through. Take a bite and, with it firmly between your teeth, let it swoop you to the peak of the big top. When you hang by your teeth, every muscle is stretched into perfect posture position.
The instant the two of you are introduced, reward your new acquaintance. Give the warm smile, the total-body turn, and the undivided attention you would give a tiny tyke who crawled up to your feet, turned a precious face up to yours, and beamed a big toothless grin.
Hello Old Friend — When meeting someone, imagine he or she is an old friend an old customer, an old beloved, or someone else you had great affection for.
How sad, the vicissitudes of life tore you two asunder. But, holy mackerel, now the party the meeting, the convention has reunited you with your long-lost old friend! The joyful experience starts a remarkable chain reaction in your body from the subconscious softening of your eyebrows to the positioning of your toes—and everything between. Limit the Fidget — Whenever your conversation really counts, let your nose itch, your ear tingle, or your foot prickle.
Do not fidget, twitch, wiggle, squirm, or scratch. And above all, keep your paws away from your puss. Then plan your moves accordingly. If a horse can do it, so can a human.
Lkwndes will say you pick up on everything. You never miss a trick. HEAR yourself chatting comfortably with everyone. FEEL the pleasure of knowing you are in peak form and everyone is gravitating toward you. Then it all happens automatically. If you ever want to bring people around to your thoughts, you must match their mood and voice tone, if only for a moment.
