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 before....like 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.

I've read a fair number of books on charisma. The others all have huge issues, with some being too basic, touting common knowledge as something profound, or too esoteric, with weird energy exercises and eastern philosophy clouding what really makes charisma.

Charlie has hit the charisma nail on the head, with a real understanding of what makes it all work. He gives concrete examples of every principle, and then several exercises for how to develop each. The exercises are fantastic, with some boasting pedigrees from greats like Tony Robbins.

At the end of it all, as the icing on the cake, Charlie gives a 30 day action plan to implement each principle. This is above and beyond the vast majority of self help books. The action plan is powerful and easily followed.

I've been an introvert for an awfully long time, (still am) but I've been practicing Charlie's stuff over this summer, and I truly am more charismatic. My conversations are improving, I'm making more friends and just enjoying life more. That said, this is not a magic bullet. You have to actually do the exercises to reap the results, and it takes time. Building charisma is just like building any other muscle. It takes time to reach your full potential.

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.

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).
