I thought this was a pretty great book that describes some things you can practice that improve your interactions with other people. It describes different forms charisma takes and gives advice on how to push yourself towards being more charismatic. Its really about having better interactions with others and being able to exert more influence on others.

The book references studies and provides stories that help make the author's point. Telling individuals stories helps keep the book and methods relatable. (I'm sure counter-stories could also be provided). There are enough examples and suggestions in this book that match my own observations that it is easy to believe the message of this book.

Some of the advice might seem a bit hokey but I can see how it could help someone have better interactions with others.
