Product Description

Amazon Review

The subtitle "Proven ways to become a people magnet" might have been a better choice of title for this, and certainly one less desperate. Author Leil LowndesLeil Lowndes is an American relationships coach and author of the inevitably successful How to make anyone fall in love with you.

Claiming that the book is backed by sociological studies and that it contains confidential testimony from thousands of people attending her seminars, Lowndes attempts to assure us that this is serious stuff. However, a read through the contents list alone (63 chapters crammed into 300 or so pages with an intro!) will have you chuckling and smiling. In fact the contents list might give you all the tips you need: "What about turning a friend into a lover?2 or "Beauty is as beauty feels", and even "The making of a star: me!"

Given the hazy premise that fear, uncertainty and doubt are at the root of not being liked (Lowndes calls it the FUD factor) and with tips like sprinkling your conversation with "uh huh" when speaking to a woman, it is easy to dismiss this as superficial pap. However, Lowndes does have the gift of the gab, and combined with short sections, plenty of tips and soundbites, this is certainly a quick, easy read. It might even win you a few admirers--if that's what you really want. --Lorna V.

There is no doubt that Lowndes has a superb informal style of writing, sharing anecdotes as though she were in the room with you. However, some of her tips almost seem common sense in my mind - almost all of the friends that I know use at least some of her communication techniques, especially speaking as though they were the listener. Also, as a man I found some of the gender stereotyping (whether backed up by sociological studies or not) a little curious. If I had someone blankly stare at me whilst speaking and not nod or make it known that they are paying attention, I would either be offended or just plain freaked out.
Regardless, the book is excellent to brush up your social skills and is genuinely useful, especially in chapters such as networking and the unique approach that Lowndes recommends at parties. The reader might best be advised however that although the book contains truthes, they aren't all necessarily universal.

Format: Paperback
'How to make anyone like you', is similar to many self help books in that it is exceedingly optimistic. There is apparently no limit to what you can achieve by being a friendly person and accumulating a good 'network' of useful friends to be helped by and to help in turn. It's all very good in theory, and there is definate potential for a life changing read in this book.
However, I think it is unlikely that many people will act quite so emphatically upon the good advice contained within the pages of this book. The reason for this is that a great deal of the ideas put forward, require someone who is a little more outgoing than most, and not so scared of acting differently to others. The reason I see this fault may be simply that the UK doesn't fall into the target audience of the book, which does seem to be mainly aimed at an American reader. There are numerous reasons I think this, America being generally thought of as a less inhibited nation, being just one of them.
There are lots of useful litte tips though, that anyone can use to their advantage. Many seemingly obvious differences between the sexes, are highlighted with the aim of giving both men and women an idea of how to behave differently, in the company of friends of the opposite sex. These kind of tips and many others, give the book a certain level of usefulness whatever kind of person you are.
'How to make anyone like you', is a well written book, that offers enough good advice to make your success in its subject matter, have a good correlation with the amount of effort you put in to making Leil Lowndes' ideas work. Basically, the more you take her ideas on board and incorporate them into your life, the more liked you will end up being.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book as I am not a people person. People scare me, and therefore I do not know how to meet new people without them thinking i'm somewhat aloof rather than shy and awkward. I bought this book in the vain hope of being able to resolve this some what and at least know how to come across as normal. The approach is very american both its language and in the advise that it offers, such as greeting every third person in a room as if we're old friends. Err, no. There is a full chapter on handshakes, as if I wasn't coming across weird enough already. Again, No. Also in each chapter she illustrates her points with apparently 'real life' examples from her friends and family which were blatently made up and usually that lame that they were funny. There is some good pointers, as in use of touch, eye contact blah blah, I actually abandoned this book a while ago and is gathering dust next to the downstairs toilet.

I bought this book with the intentions to learn how to talk and make new friends esp when one is shy. What I didn't expect was the book would be packed with matter-of-fact information which is a eye opener to those also seeking to know themselves.

This book is a defo must have .... and worth reading and re-reading .... best self help book i have read with simple home truths that hit the nerve ... wake up and read it .... in fact dont just read it, go live it!

Format: Paperback
A fairly good book, with plenty of ideas.
However, the book makes frequent references to the appendix, in which we are supposed to find activities which will help us. WHERE IS IT?
I was most disappointed, to find there isn't one, as the activities would have been helpful.

Although the book says it is based on scientific research, the majority of it is anecdotal. It is more an autobiography of the writer than a factual book about psychology/ relationships. Having said that, it is an enjoyable read, but contains little more than common sense tips about getting on with people.
