By Mark E. Mathis on December 1, 2002
Format: Hardcover
What a wonderful little book that packs a great big wallop! If you are serious about connecting with people in business, and reaping the rewards that come with more and better relationships, then this is an absolute must-read for you.

I had the good fortune of reading Nick Boothman's first book, "How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less," while on a flight to a conference in which I was teaching. I was inspired by the simplicity and practicality of Boothman's approach. I began using his techniques before even leaving the airplane and continued to use them in the cab, the hotel, and at the conference. It was a breakthrough moment for me. My audience paid closer attention, laughed more, and learned more than any other I had previously served. This happened because I connected with them in a much stronger and more meaningful way-Boothman's way. I've been following Nick's direction ever since.
Now, Mr. Boothman releases a pitch-perfect sequel-"How to Connect in Business in 90 Seconds or Less." While this volume is grounded in the same principles as his first book, every page is crafted with the businessperson in mind. As I have read and re-read this snappy, entertaining, profound book, I am amazed at how much more Nick Boothman has to teach me about persuasion-the craft of getting people (in this case clients and other business contacts) to want to do what I want them to do. It's all KFC: Know what you want, Find out what you're getting, and, Change what you do until you get what you want. Sounds obvious, right? Wrong. If it were many more of us would be much more successful.
Some of the material in this book is good basic sense that your mother told you but somehow leaked out of your head.

I have been involved in marketing and networking for the last 30 years both in Europe and North America and thought I had learnt almost all I could about connecting in business. I was so wrong. On a recent transatlantic trip I read Boothman's book twice and put many of the suggestions to work at a function I attended at the end of the trip and was blown away by the positive reaction generated by using the techniques suggested.

Great advice and well narrated! Nick provides actionable, practical tips on how to be more effective in personal interactions. How to pace and watch for queues in your audience whether it be an audience of 1 or 1,000.

I was inspired by the simplicity and practicality of Boothman's approach. This audio book is packed with tips on how to connect to people and is presented by the author in a snappy and entertaining way. When you've finished it, you'll want to go back and listen it again. It's insights help me to be more charming when interacting with other people instead of more alarming! :-)

I picked up this book because I wanted to improve my ability to network and make business contacts. The majority of the book is common sense advice and is fairly helpful. You're not going to read anything particularly novel nor innovative by any means (contrary to what some of these reviews might lead you to believe). It's a quick read and has some good reminders, but it's mostly just good advice slightly adapted to the business world. I'd recommend the book, but don't expect to hear anything you haven't heard before.
