Description

"You'll not only break the ice, you'll melt it away with your new skills." -- Larry King

"The lost art of verbal communication may be revitalized by Leil Lowndes." -- Harvey McKay, author of “How to Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive”

What is that magic quality makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their "Midas touch?"

What it boils down to is a more skillful way of dealing with people.

The author has spent her career teaching people how to communicate for success. In her book How to Talk to Anyone (Contemporary Books, October 2003) Lowndes offers 92 easy and effective sure-fire success techniques-- she takes the reader from first meeting all the way up to sophisticated techniques used by the big winners in life. In this information-packed book you’ll find:

  • 9 ways to make a dynamite first impression
  • 14 ways to master small talk, "big talk," and body language
  • 14 ways to walk and talk like a VIP or celebrity
  • 6 ways to sound like an insider in any crowd
  • 7 ways to establish deep subliminal rapport with anyone
  • 9 ways to feed someone's ego (and know when NOT to!)
  • 11 ways to make your phone a powerful communications tool
  • 15 ways to work a party like a politician works a room
  • 7 ways to talk with tigers and not get eaten alive

In her trademark entertaining and straight-shooting style, Leil gives the techniques catchy names so you'll remember them when you really need them, including: "Rubberneck the Room," "Be a Copyclass," "Come Hither Hands," “Bare Their Hot Button,” “The Great Scorecard in the Sky," and "Play the Tombstone Game,” for big success in your social life, romance, and business.

How to Talk to Anyone, which is an update of her popular book, Talking the Winner's Way (see the 5-star reviews of the latter) is based on solid research about techniques that work!

By the way, don't confuse How to Talk to Anyone with one of Leil's previous books, How to Talk to Anybody About Anything. This one is completely different!

  • (5/5)
    Re-read--excellent advice
  • (4/5)
    A useful collection of tips for social interactions. I found many of the tips in this book to be very helpful.
  • (5/5)
    Awesome Book.
  • (2/5)
    Nothing you couldn't figure out for yourself if you really wanted to!
  • (4/5)
    It is written in a great, analytical way that breaks down human interpersonal behavior in a way that you can internalize.
  • (2/5)
    Currently have this audio book on my iTouch. Started it ages ago but found it quite boring and repetitive. Better off reading "How to win friends and influence people" or "The power of positive thinking"
  • (2/5)
    I can't pinpoint why but this was strangely off-putting.
  • (3/5)
    I love these short, 90s ('sort of), campy, phony-get-ahead audiobooks. This one wasn't short and campy enough.
  • (3/5)
    How to be more confident with conversation.
  • (4/5)
    Sweet and succinct. With clever devices and memorable anecdotes, Lowndes assembles a quick and easy guidebook for those searching to make better impressions.
  • (5/5)
    Great book to read love every single chapter. Definitely recommend.

    very insightful book with what seems to be very useful tricks. She prefaces the books with how Dale Carnegie's "how to win friends and influence people" is outdated, but hers is becoming outdated, too, because she has techniques with land-line etiquette. :) There is a typo - there are two #89s!
