2.0 out of 5 stars Hackneyed, poorly written. Enchanting? Puhleeez!, March 11, 2011
This review is from: Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions (Hardcover)
I am one of the many random people worldwide that received a complimentary copy of the book. And much as I feel grateful for the gift, I'll be honest. The book did not enchant. It's mostly a collection of tips that I've come across from various sources before this. What did not help was that the author re-wrote those tips in his own writing style (which is far from enchanting...actually it is tiresome!) It seems the author is more an entrepreneur than an original thinker or writer.

p.s. Btw, I got a link to a quiz on the author's FB page that offered to tell me how enchanting I was based on my responses. After filling out some 25 questions I clicked the Submit button to see my results and got a message that asked me to 'LIKE' the author's page BEFORE I could see my results. I was not enchanted. :(

p.p.s When I last checked, the quiz had been tweaked. You can now participate only AFTER you LIKE the page. Looks like the author still doesn't get it.

You obviously don't understand how Facebook fan pages work. You have to "Like" the page to participate on it. You are free to unlike it afterwards.

I agree. Guy Kawasaki is all about promoting Guy Kawasaki in any way he can. Snake oil salesman. Don't waste your money on this rip off book and get the original book that Guy ripped off: Robert Cialdini's Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion

That's almost as bad as charging to check for a vacancy at a hotel.

Apparently you are not too familiar with Facebook... Maybe figure that out before criticizing the author, genius.

Guy Kawasaki is a household name and pretty smart to promote the one thing he has all to his own. Never heard of the author you mention. I will read this book and many more by Guy Kawasaki due to I like success. BTW I do not do Facebook
