Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether selling, managing, negotiating, planning, collaborating, pitching, instructing-or on your knees with a marriage proposal-the secret of success is based on connecting with other people. Now that connection is infinitely easier to make through Nicholas Boothman's program of rapport by design.

How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less is the work of a master of Neuro-Linguistic Programming whose career is teaching corporations and groups the secrets of successful face-to-face communication. Aimed at establishing rapport-that stage between meeting and communicating-How to Make People Like You focuses on the concept of synchrony. It shows how to synchronize attitude, synchronize body language, and synchronize voice tone so that you instantly and imperceptibly become someone the other person likes. Reinforcing these easy-to-learn skills is knowing how to read the other person's sensory preferences-most of us are visual, some are kinesthetic, and a minority are auditory. So when you say "I see what you mean" to a visual person, you're really speaking his language. Along the way the book covers attitude, nervousness, words that open a conversation and words that shut it down, compliments, eye cues, the magic of opposites attracting, and more. It's how to make the best of the most important 90 seconds in any relationship, business or personal.

Synopsis:

How to make a great first impression, it's a constant problem and Nicholas Boothman has solved it simply enough for everyone to use in business and personal interactions. Horray! Horray!!! (Martin Edelston, Publisher, Bottom Line/Personal)

Boothman's clear, easy-to-follow instructions will help anyone ace a job or any other type of interview. (Rick Haskins, author of BRAND YOURSELF: HOW TO CREATE A UNIQUE IDENTITY FOR A BRILLIANT CAREER)

Whether selling, managing, job hunting, negotiating, pitching an idea, applying for law school, joining a new group or on your knees with a marriage proposal, the secret of success is based on connecting with other people. And the most powerful new idea for making connections is revealed, step by step, in Nicholas Boothman's breakthrough program of rapport by design. Easily learned, it will help you make the best of any relationship's most important moment: those first 90 seconds.

Synopsis:

Never again let shyness get in the way of an appointment or interview. Or leave the making of an important contact to chance. Or find yourself tongue-tied or distracted in social situations. The key, according to Nicholas Boothman and his plan for face-to-face communication, is simple the way to make a person like you is to make yourself be like that person, if only for the 90 seconds or less it takes to establish rapport.

Learn the power of a Really Useful Attitude, the secr4est of voice tone and body language, the difference between ýopening upO words and ýclosing downO words.
