Great book with very good insights. I liked the 90 seconds summaries at the end of every chapter, that has helped me to get to the key points and actually note them. There are quite a few good points. The best one for me was the realization that I am 100% responsible for my own communication. It's not somebody else not understanding me, it's about the way I communicate. And that can be the substance, the form, etc. Speaking the Language of the Brain as the author puts it helps a lot with getting ...more

Antes de mais nada, esse livro não é um livro de persuasão, de fazer outras pessoas terem a mesma convicção que você; esse livro é como convencer alguém a comprar algo de você -- seja produto ou seja você mesmo.

Existem vários "exercícios" para conseguir aprender as regras de convencer alguém: como olhar alguém nos olhos, como estar sempre sorrindo, como contar uma história que capture a atenção das pessoas.... cada ponto tem um exercício. Além disso, no final de cada capítulo, existe um resumo d

É um livro um pouco antigo já, no entanto, as dicas e ensinamentos que o autor nos dá não são mera teoria. A cada capítulo, ele sugere exercícios para treinarmos e confirmamos aquilo que ele acabou de dizer.

Grande maioria das técnicas que ele ensina fazem muito sentido quando você está tentando criar relacionamentos. Técnicas estas que vão desde simples apresentações até habilidades mais diferenciadas para falar em público. Vale a leitura se você precisa melhorar a maneira como se relaciona ou

Wow, great read. I found out that I naturally do a lot of things that help make a good first impression during new business encounters, but I also learned that there was a method to doing that which has helped me be more conscious, consistent, and systematic in taking the right approach to every new connection. I also learned quite a few new tricks, that have already proved useful and accurate.

This book had some interesting concept, but was a bit painful to read. I had to read it as part of some leadership training I'm taking.

Livro com explicações relevantes sobre o que se propõe, fácil de ler e compreender, as informações são dadas e são propostos exercícios.

A good start to this kind of info, there’s definitely a lot to expand on. Written in a concise way.

De esos libros que te brindan técnicas para tu desarrollo. El valor más importante: la práctica de lo que lees aquí.
Davi Busanello
O livro é bem interessante, dá vários insights para fazer um melhor networking. Mas para mim que já estudei PNL os tópicos são tratados de uma forme bem superficial.

Livro com uma grande quantidade de dicas práticas na área de negociação de comunicação.
Contem alguns exercícios práticos de como aplicar essas dicas. Muito útil a todos que precisam trabalhar no ramo de vendas.
Marília de Menezes
É um livro totalmente voltado para relações de negócio. Auxilia na comunicação de um modo geral, falando sobre os efeitos da linguagem corporal e visual, tom de voz e personalidade, especialmente nos primeiros 90 segundos de conversa com alguém. Dá dicas e exemplos bem interessantes. Recomendo!

Overall, not a bad book. Some of the chapters just dragged on though... could have used some of the advice of the '90 seconds or less' book itself... The first couple of chapters and the last 3-4 chapters are very good. A lot of it is stuff that are obvious or that you already know, but the book frames some of the tactics well. As a side - I didn't like the lay out of the book in some cases -- it would be discussing a topic, then have an 'aside' story which interleaves for two pages, at which po ...more

This book promotes constructive implementation of NLP, it is extremely well written, personable and the author communicates his secret formula's with supporting examples and exercises intended for the reader to easily practice new communication techniques. I am far more aware during conversations and put my best efforts in to begin open, engaging, curious and enthusiastic. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to learn how to be an effective communicator.

Un livre très intéressant , bien que je déteste les livres qui prétendent la délivrance des secrets ultimes , ce livre m'a attiré par sa structure , sa manière et les histoires dedans .
Sa lecture est bénéfique certes , surtout au niveau professionnel , je trouve que c'est important de lire un livre qui peut enrichir et organiser des compétences de communication.

I thought this book touched on a lot of techniques to help me sell more effectively as a salesman. It also has a lot of tools to help with communicating with all kinds of people by using simple body language secrets from making eye contact to remembering someone's name. This is a book that you can go back and forth to for pointers.

Nicholas Boothman is a genius when it comes to connecting. Some great, not-so-obvious points in this book that will help you make a fantastic first impression, and then take that first impression and turn it into a solid business relationship. Highly recommended.

Probably more like 3.5 stars. Short read on creating connections with people. A lot of the info was basic but great refresher and inspiration to get better at communicating with others. Some really good nuggets hidden throughout.

Nicholas delivered great insight and short to the point. He accompany his teaching with his own personal story which help you remember it better. The book is short so you can read it couple time to digest the ideas that he presented.

Um livro excelente que exemplifica métodos que abrangem todos os aspectos para o desenvolvimento de networking e conexões pessoais. Possui uma leitura fácil e agradável, sem duvida este livro agregara muito a todos que lerem.
Rodrigo Jardim
Meio obvio demais, tem algumas dicas interessantes, mas a narrativa é cansativa, tive problemas para terminar, quase desisti mais de uma vez, e os exercicios propostos na sua maioria são idiotas.

Mas o maior problema é que a narrativa é chata e cansativa

I am passionate about human potential.

I spent the first 25 years of my working life as a fashion photographer and as a father of five children. I met so many people with tremendous potential but without any people skills - they were like roses with rubber bands wrapped around them - and they'd never blossom until someone took off that rubber band. I made up my mind to be that person.

I took a risk
