Format: Paperback
I have many, many self-help books on my book shelf. Many of which I haven't finished reading despite having them for years. Leil Lowndes 'How to talk to anyone...' is the most useful, in fact, the best self-help book I have ever purchased. I have finished reading it - yay! And I will now go back and re-read putting into practice many of the tips she has suggested - yay!. In fact over the past week I have put into practice some of the tips and I feel that people have already responded to me differently and I feel more confident.

This book is better than others because a) it is easy to read (the chapters are short, and straight to the point) b) the tips are very, very practical and easy to put into practice you can do most of them almost immediately, and c) it is not boring and written like a school textbook like many other help books.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their communication skills instantly. The only negative comment I have is that there are many references to Leil's 'high society friends' - the average person doesn't associate with the CEO of multi-national companies or have friends that are work for famous actors - so there is a lot of indirect name-dropping which I couldn't relate to but despite this I did think of situations where I could use her advice even though I'm not 'high society'.

I am always a little cynical about these kind of books - this however, is written in a fresh and interesting style that is easy to follow. There have been comments that it is a little patronising in it's tone but I didn't find this. I am intrigued by the whole idea of body language but I think this book takes it one stage further and I have found it very useful indeed. I had a very important interview recently and used a couple of techniques - I felt they helped me to relax and feel a little more in control. One thing to remember though, don't try to use too many at once when you are trying to grasp them!

It seems like there are some good tips in here for talking and communication.

However, the stories which Lowndes uses to explain each tip do get a bit annoying after a while and I have to agree with an earlier reviewer about the 'truth' of some of these stories, it seems as if the author is perhaps embellishing some of them to enthuse the reader into becoming a walking, talking charm-bot. Credit to Lowndes enthusiasm, but it does get a little nauseous.

Perhaps if the tips were presented in a more succint and less exuberant manner, then it may serve as a better read for getting Lowndes useful tips across. Saying this, each tip is presented in a small box containing no more than a couple of sentences to summarise so you can always just flcik through and grab hold of these little pointers.

All in all though, a little disappointed.

Hi
I found this book interesting; I've tried many of the techniques and found that they work very well.
Unfortunately, the author has little genuine warmth, empathy or interest in other people.
One example (not untypical). The authors 'good friend' had started a business and Leil (the author) introduced her to an important - powerful - contact. The author's friend 'messed up' when she contacted the 'important person' - she didn't have a pen and asked him to wait a few minutes whilst she got one. The author's reaction 'that's the last time I'll introduce her to anyone'. Jeez - I'm glad she's not my 'good friend'.
I thoroughly recommend it to anybody who wants to communicate more effectively i.e. get what they want out of other people - respect, friendship, business, a job, etc.
However don't let it turn you into a self-centered, manipulative, jerk.
Remember that communications techniques can help in one off relationships (e.g. a job interview, sales call), can help lubricate new relationships (a first date), and increase your social standing (working a party, or social engagement).
They can't help in long-term relationships (when a date becomes your girl/guy, on the job, parenting, etc.) For that you need to invest in your character.
Happy reading

I have to say I was really looking forward to reading this book. I think everyone would like to have a few more social tools in their toolbox. And there are a few good ones as well as some funny anecdotes, but for the most part and as other reviewers have pointed out, what's on offer here amounts to little more than plain old common sense. I think most people know these things and but Lowndes spells it all out in idiot-proof language with a lot of waffle. In fact, there is so much filler in some places that sometimes when I finished a chapter, I couldn't remember what the main point was and had to go back and find it. I think if the book were about half as long but with the same number of chapters, it would have been a lot more effective. The author also focuses much more on hobnobbing, social climbing, and work environment and very little on making friends and talking to people in normal situations, which is more what I was after. I wasn't so irked about the advice given being manipulative as others have mentioned, but you probably wouldn't want to use a lot of these tricks too liberally if you didn't want to run the risk of being branded a phoney. I have tried a couple of them out with good results, but in eyedropper quantities. Not a bad read, a bit boring sometimes, and no, it isn't really what it claims to be.
