Book Description

Have you ever encountered someone with magnetic charisma?

The type of person that you just immediately liked and trusted? That commanded respect without hardly uttering a word?

Maybe you've even felt something like it everything you said was engaging and made people laugh. Like people were just drawn to you.

Do you want to know how to turn that personal magnetism on at a moment's notice?

Then this book is for you!

Charisma on Command will teach you how to tap into your charismatic potential so that you can turn it on whenever you want. It draws on analysis of the most charismatic people in the world, including Steve Jobs, Bill Clinton, Russell Brand, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther King, Tony Robbins, and more. You'll learn the mindsets, body language, and exercises that can make you the person others are drawn to. The type of person you might meet for a minute, but remember for a lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little about me... I have been ... August 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A little about me...

I have been doing self-help for about a year now and throughout the process I have been trying to find ways to become more charming and charismatic. After sifting through much work of Mark Manson, Corey Wayne, RSD, and a few others, I have found this book to really bring those small pieces I found together in one.

What you will get out of this book is really what you put in. You can read it and take no action and guess what you'll still be the same! However; after reading and applying the techniques I have noticed a change not only in myself but in the way people respond to me. Their eyes light up when I start to tell a story - they actually want to hear what I have to say.

All in all this book is worth your time and money. It definitely has improved the quality of my life and my interactions.

P.S. I'm a sucker for Charlie's writing style - it really draws me in ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Social Skills GOLD. August 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is social gold. I used to hold the faulty belief that social skills could be IMPROVED, but not TRANSFORMED. Until I read this and chatted with the authors (great guys), I didn't really understand the full implications of actively working on social skills and charisma.

With conscious effort, it's possible to become drastically more charismatic and outgoing...even if you think you're super introverted.

Read it. Implement it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best tactical book on charisma I've read August 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great book. I've read all kinds of books on social skills - Models, the Game, the Charisma Myth, books on body language... and this one probably does the best job of breaking down the components that go into being charismatic.

One of my favorite parts was the chapter on making a good first impression. I loved how Charlie broke down the emotions you wanted to instill in the other person in order to make a great first impression, then provide exercises you can do to get better at this stuff. (also, found a video of the author talking about this stuff, really good -

Really strong book, the only thing I think that could be improved or added is how charisma comes across differently for men vs. women. I felt like some of the examples used in the book worked really well when I was interacting in groups of guys, but didn't work as well with women. Just a thought - still very worth the read.

Great book on understanding how to shift behavioural and communication patterns to improve your social interactions. Charisma is not necessarily innate it can be learned. most charismatic people I know naturally do the stuff that this book examines and teaches. its not about performing as somebody else's identity it is about reworking your common patterns and learning how to present yourself in fun and interesting ways. its about tapping into our own fun and creative side and generating these same feelings in others. I have applied the content of this book with great results in my personal and professional life and I recommend it to anyone looking to be more fun and socially engaging.

I really resonated with Charlie's journey of being the ultra-shy kid in high school and slowly but surely breaking out of his comfort zone to become the charismatic beast that he is today. It's so nice to know that people like him aren't born that way -- that it's attainable for everyone. Beyond that, Charlier offers a lot of tremendous advice that isn't present in your run of the mill charisma book. I've read my fair share and there are some nuggets in here that you won't find elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical & Effective Like the Best of Them August 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Charlie Houpert's work here is once again remarkable. This is one of the most practical, fascinating, and overall effective books on social self-improvement that I've yet read. Through real-life examples, Houpert shows instead of just tells. While this isn't a massive narrative a la The Game, it does offer the tools needed to be more charismatic in all walks of life.

The greatest strength of the book is the fact that Houpert connects the dots from his old non-charismatic self to his new, more charismatic character, and along the way details exactly how he got there. Best of all, Charisma on Command is not a step-by-step guidebook but rather an inspirational piece to access the tools you need to become more charismatic, regardless of your personality type.

Some smaller pieces are things that you might already know or might have already read, but the way Houpert connects them to his own experience or slots them into the broader spectrum of charismatic development makes all of the difference. He was in the same place at one time as interested readers are now. The book doesn't talk down to you, it talks TO you. The result is a development book that, instead of making you thing "I hope I can get there soon," instead makes you think "That's a good point; let's get started."

I've read numerous books on Communication, Body Language, and Charisma over the years and by far this is the most actionable I've read in a very long time. Not only does the Charlie lay out a step by step action plan to follow but does so while walking you through his personal journey of transformation.

I'm only on day 15 of the exercises in the back of the book but have already seen an demonstrable impact in the interactions with the people around me.

My only recommendation would be a more realistic assessment of the level of effort required from exercises. While most of the ones I've done so far could easily be done in a few minutes, I found that others took much longer than advertised due in order to really get the most out of them. But as another poster commented, you really do get out of it what you put in. If you're looking to improve though and are willing to put in even a little bit of effort, definitely worth the read.
