Review

“Something magical happens when two people connect eye-to-eye. Michael Ellsberg’s wonderful book helps you create that magic every day.” (Marci Shimoff, New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason)

“Effective business networking depends on effective eye contact. If you want to improve your networking skills, this book will be an important read.” (Dr. Ivan Misner, author of the New York Times bestselling Masters of Networking and Truth or Delusion? Busting Networking's Biggest Myths)

“Ellsberg takes us on a captivating journey through the world of eye contact. Both mysterious and rewarding, the text reveals the powerful secrets of using the eyes to connect with others.” (Rom Brafman, co-author of the New York Times bestseller Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior)

“The Power of Eye Contact is a must-read book if you want a lasting relationship--or want to deepen the one you’re in. Few skills hold as much potential in the realm of the heart as offering your deep presence through your gaze. Michael Ellsberg shows you the way.” (Marie Forleo, author Make Every Man Want You)

“Rumi often speaks of the soul mystery that gets exchanged through the eyes, in the glance. Michael Ellsberg provides a clear guide on how we can bring this practice, with all its beauty and power, into our own lives.” (Coleman Barks, bestselling author of The Essential Rumi, The Soul of Rumi and Rumi: The Book of Love)

“After I swam the Amazon, demand for my public speaking skyrocketed. No one has taught me more about connecting with audiences on a visceral level than Michael Ellsberg.” (Martin Strel, holder of 4 Guinness World Records in marathon swimming, co-author of The Man Who Swam the Amazon, professional public speaker)

“Michael Ellsberg incisively surveys the many centuries of literature on the qualities of eye contact, skillfully interviews contemporaries who shed light on its complex dynamics, and with a clear eye and open heart offers profoundly practical guidance to those who hunger to see deeper—into others and themselves.” (Thomas Farber, author of The Beholder)

From the Back Cover

Eye contact can land you a job. It can get you a date. It can deepen your connections with the people you love. It can make or break business relationships. It can help win a fight. It can win over an audience.

Simply put, eye contact is one of the most powerful tools in human face-to-face interaction. The Power of Eye Contact is your concise guide to harnessing the potent force of eye contact.

Master this force and you will notice three things:

  • You meet more people.
  • Your connections deepen with family, friends, and business prospects.
  • You look, feel, and act more confident.

The Power of Eye Contact is your invaluable tool to enhance your relationships in every part of your life.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought this book might be useful in providing the science behind eye contact, or an explanation of what certain contact means (or does not mean). There was very little of this. Instead, the book is full of interviews and anecdotes: not really what I expected. It seemed like the author was filling up pages with personal experiences to surpass the 200-page mark. It felt as though a lot of this information was on his blog (I don't know that he is a "blogger") and he just compiled it at some point.

It did have some useful information, though much of it was intuitive. Nonetheless, I suppose if you are a business professional, this might be a good book to reference. The chapters about flirting seemed somehow out of place (3, 4 and 9). Since the subject is so very interesting and relatively unexamined (as far as I know, and as presented to laymen), I have to rate the book well. I suppose in this sense, I was willing to pay for and found 25% of the material actually useful.

I was first inclined to give the book 3 stars, but the author somehow seems very likable and genuine. I wish he wouldn't have mentioned that he is the founder of "Eye-Gazing Parties"; that was a bit strange and off-putting.

The book receives 3.5 stars.

This book gives you the minimum of actual exercises/ techniques on developing your eye contact AND spend the vast majority reciting stories of how important eye contact is, and how this famous or powerful person has it and has used it.
Hoped for much more, unfortunately does not deliver.

Same as review from

M. Hamann "Markus"

Found this book hard to get in to seemed very thrown together, and was more about coverstaions or articles or quotes about eye contact . I could have written this book myself, by doing a Google search of eye contact then copy and pasting every thing i found in to one place.

Not what i expected. It was not a page turner. and the information in this book was hidden within the text in a way that i would find it hard to pick up and use again. If your interested in eye contact, it basically says do it more often till you get used to it.

Awesome. Brilliant. I have tried eye gazing already and noticed that in the UK at least, people are quite shy about looking you in the eye. After reading this I have noticed I am more aware of people eye colours now and try, not overly, to see what colour eyes people have. One thing I have noticed though is that one needs to be a bit careful and not come over too strong with the contact. I am also passing on the details re giving presentations to a trainer I know who gives training in giving speeches and presentations. She has agreed to pass on the recommendation as well.
