Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
Price: £5.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, 20 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating look at the cultural implications of generalising conditions at work and school for an idealised assertive and energetic personality type, supported by some scientific research and personal stories. Rather US-centric but does make reference to other cultures to highlight certain concepts and features. It did make me think about how I organise my own time and how I interact with colleagues, friends, family and strangers, so in its primary aim, I would say it was a success.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick and punchy, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice little book covering all the basics with frank honesty and helpful guidance. It doesn't pretend to be anything it's not or claim to hold all the answers which is very refreshing for books in this field. Instead of pomp and arrogance you get a handy little quick start guide which gets people in and out of 'trance' without any fuss.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This guide only tells you how to get a stranger you have impressed enough to get a number for into bed without the intermediary stages of dating and emotional attachment development. It is a shallow, self-gratification masterclass. I was hoping for something with a little more soul to help me say the right things to get to know girls better between dates. This book was not what I needed. No doubt others will find it very helpful indeed. The punctuation is a nightmare throughout the text but I was still able to follow what was being taught.

This was a good start to building confidence in approaching and talking to strangers. However it's not always strangers that you want to be more comfortable talking to. In order to develop and sustain an active social life it needs to be read in tandem with other books in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction To The Subject, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent introduction to the subject. As a non-academic with just a passing interest, it was clearly laid out and all the main ideas were described in simple, plain language. The repetition of points the author thought were important got a bit annoying but I guess students would find them useful. It was particularly good to see the focus was on the criminal system in the UK. As a Brit I frequently struggle with texts from Amazon that concentrate on the US procedures that I am unfamiliar with. A great and educational read.

Always Know What To Say - Easy Ways To Approach And Talk To Anyone
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Always feel comfortable talking, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title is a little misleading as it is not a manual full of lists of what to say in a hundred different scenarios or a guide to conversational etiquette at high society gatherings where you may feel unfamiliar and confused. It is a book challenging you to think differently about yourself, people and interactions between them. It poses the questions to allow you to find your own style of conversing, with a few handy prompts. It is lovely and simple and easy to use. It is clearly written and organised. A thought provoking and encouraging book. I would recommend it to all the shy people I know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shy guy guide, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike other self-help manuals written by doctors and research psychologists and relationship counsellors and the like, you really feel as though the author has gone through these same situations too. She knows how hard it is to break the cycle and the routine for real. It feels honest and genuine and supportive for people who really do struggle with strangers rather than ordinary folk who just want to become better at wowing a crowd.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hula hoop a poo poo, 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What Joe Vitale takes a whole book to say is think positively, take responsibility and sign up to our weekend workshop and spiritual seminars for a very reasonable rate. No wonder this man is rolling in money (as he so often loves to point out). There is no real evidence to back up any of the claims made in this book other than testimonies of positively biased friends colleagues and the anecdotal coincidence of a criminal mental hospital closing down at the same time as Dr Hew Len worked there.
At best, the idea that your past affects your present through your subconscious is basic Freudian thought; at worst, trying to convince people that they must give themselves over fully to The Divine hints at cults. I also object fully to being told that I am responsible for the war in Iraq simply because I saw it on the news one day.

There are better written, better researched, better motivated self help guides out there than this money making scam that has a link to a website on every other page.

Save your money. Think happy thoughts. I guarantee your life is already more improved than if you'd read this nonsense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made Me Miss My Bus, 12 May 2013

This review is from: Virtual City® Free (App)
A good and challenging logistics game. Trying to beat the timer is driving me to distraction. I can't stop playing. It is addictive. Best of all it doesn't require frequent in-game purchases in order to get to the next level (unlike the sister game Virtual City Playground which cost me a lot of money to build next to nothing and almost put me off the franchise entirely). A good game very worthwhile having.
