Editorial Reviews

Review

“Everything Vanessa does is captivating, but this book is her masterpiece. Nearly every page contains surprising insights and practical tips to help you succeed more in life.”
—CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, author of The Happiness of Pursuit and host of Side Hustle School

“If you’ve ever thought ‘I hope they have a dog at this dinner party so that I don’t have to talk to anyone,' read this book. Hello Captivate, good-bye awkward moments.”
—JON ACUFF, author of Do Over

“There is a big difference between faking your way into building relationships and deeply un­derstanding the science of what makes people tick so that you can naturally and effectively connect with them. Captivate teaches this science in a fun and accessible way, so that you apply the learning in your everyday life, growing your network, influence, and impact.”
—PAMELA SLIM, author of Body of Work

“This book is rewarding regardless of your level of skill in getting along with others.”
—ART MARKMAN, PhD, coauthor of Brain Briefs

“Captivate is packed full of useful information for anyone interested in improving their social skills—it’s a must read.”
—JOE NAVARRO, former FBI agent, body language expert, and author of What Every BODY is Saying

“In Captivate, Vanessa Van Edwards has not only decoded the secret formula for what makes people tick, she also explains how to harness and put the latest people science into action.”
—JORDAN HARBINGER, founder of The Art of Charm

“Full of helpful tips, actionable anecdotes, and fascinating research, Captivate is the consummate wingman (or woman)—a book you’ll hear whispering in your ears, giving you social superpowers.”
—JENNY BLAKE, author of Pivot

“Vanessa Van Edwards is pure gold, and this book is an invaluable guide to harnessing the science of what makes people tick. A must read if you want to use its power for good inside your company, cause, or career.”
—CHASE JARVIS, CEO of CreativeLive
