Compared to other books on charisma on the market, this book is...
1. More actionable.
There is a 30-day action guide at the end, like a workout plan for your charisma skills.

2. More realistic and nuanced in its advice.
Not the typical "Make more eye contact!" quips, nor the vague Dale Carnegie advice on "Show interest in the other person by asking them questions"--the authors actually go into detail on crucial things you need to do before asking people about themselves, in order to have them actually care about giving good answers..

3. Easier and faster to read.

The book makes an important distinction between mindset (inside) vs. behavior (outside). If you have all the "right" behavior but you don't have the inner mindset to match it, people will notice the incongruence, and feel that it lacks in authenticity. For example, the first part detailed 12 Charismatic Convictions, all of which were related to mindset rather than behavior:
- I'm okay. I will be okay.
- I care more about my character than the opinions of others.
- I have impeccable integrity.
- Don't convince.
- Communicate your purpose.
- Break solemnity and be fun.
- Broach taboo topics.
- Demonstrate clear boundaries.
- Break down physical barriers.
- Be liberal with your praise.
- Let others know when you're nervous, pissed, or hurt.
- Reveal your flaws.

Only then is there discussion of outer behaviors to practice (body language, style of dress, conversational techniques).

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 ;)

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.

The book starts off very strongly. The story about the Reddit founders and the author's personal story (marred, however, by the unnecessary detail that the girl who spurned him came back and he got to blow her off...though he did so because he feared being rejected again. Really?). It then tells the important non-verbal story of charisma at the start of chapter two. He continues going strong with his writing on the power of conviction. I was convinced I was going to give this book 5 stars. Then the wheels start coming off his wagon.

"You build conviction that you have impeccable integrity by living with impeccable integrity. ...You cut out lying. Even the little white lies. Even the lies of omission." p. 49. Two things. One of his foremost example of charisma is Bill Clinton (a charismatic person of the first order, but one who was not known for impeccable integrity--not telling lies of omission, etc.--even while he was undeniably charismatic). Second, I am not sure anyone living or breathing lives up to this standard.

Some of his advice about charismatic people seems fuzzy and tangential. How does being the first to bring up "taboo" topics like religion, politics, money or sex make you charismatic? I know a few people who do this and they are often viewed as annoying, socially inept, and not charismatic.

There are moments when he regains his footing and again offers sound advice, but I became much more wary of what he was writing because it seemed so spotty. His message lacks integrity and soundness. For example, after offering several pieces of good advice he recommends introducing people with a flattering headline. For example, "Meet Mary, the smartest person I know.
