Recommendation

When you meet someone, look ’em in the eye and give ’em a firm handshake because everyone knows that making a good first impression is important. Former fashion photographer Nicholas Boothman explains why – and a whole lot more – in this fascinating look at how people make connections. Like most people, you probably establish immediate rapport with certain individuals and don’t seem to have anything in common with others. If you’ve wondered why, the author explains the components of communication and offers specific techniques you can employ to create connections quickly. The fun part is that after you’ve finished the book, you can try your newly acquired skills on just about anyone in any situation. Though some people are naturals, for most becoming a skilled conversationalist takes a lot of practice. getAbstract believes that almost everyone will find useful information and practical advice in Boothman’s book. At the very least, he gives you plenty to discuss.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to make a good first impression;
  • How to strike up a conversation with just about anyone; and
  • Why connecting with people can help you in all areas of your work and life.
