Charisma is not a gift, it's a tool. Cabane makes a big promise with this book and delivers on it (Seth Godin)

If you are interested in increasing your ability to be charismatic, this book will give you direct skills to use (Psychology Today)
Charisma Myth is an easy read, effectively integrating stories and research, strategies and applications, techniques and practices. (New York Journal of Books)

Yet I’m frequently involved marketing events and have to give presentations to large crowds.
So I can only dream of having the charisma of Obama or JFK.
At the same time there is little hope for me as I rarely read self-help books mostly because they are generally poorly-written by self-obsessed authors and teach me trivial things that I already know.
This book is not so different. Yet it places the myth of charisma in a decent perspective.
In the end I should be glad I picked up the book and worked through it. As it is somewhat helpful, it teaches you important elements of charisma and how to be more mindful of that.
Now I fill the room a little bit more with my presence. I have gained a slightly more magnetic personality. And feel I’m better able to steer my daily group meetings in my desired direction. Moreover.. my power over the other-sex has dramatically increased! haha.. but from a very low level, as it was non-existent before.
The recommendations aren't merely a sticking plaster over the 'real' (uncharismatic) you; but rather help you peel off negative habits like drifting off when speaking with people, or holding onto resentment; thus exposing the real charismatic You.
Famous characters' charisma is discussed and some have more or less of the three main foundations for charisma, so there is plenty of flexibility to develop what is natural to you.
Overall, I can't recommend this book enough.
