The book gets five stars from me because it provides tons of valuable advice; in addition, Leil keeps it interesting by giving personal examples and stories alongside her tricks. I fully intend to come back to this book to help make these tricks habit. After a full read, it becomes a guide, you'll look back at conversations and realize what tricks you used, or failed to use.
This is definitely one of the best most-useful books that I have ever read.

I personally utilize very few of the techniques contained in this book, but then again I have very little desire to climb most social or corporate ladders. I do occasionally have clients who ask me to help them improve their social skills, so I like to have some familiarity with recommended social behaviors. The skills and behaviors outlined in this book can improve your social presentation if you take the time to practice them until they feel natural. Like every thing else in life, practice does lessen our natural imperfections.
Yes. I felt timid every time I spoke to the editors, and despite how much I wanted to talk to them, I couldn't even make it past a thirty second conversation. And after I accidentally goofed on our FIRST release? Oh god none of them even bothered to talk to me after that... And I felt way too threatened to try to start a conversation. So the result was this: I suffered from becoming the social outcast because of a pretty bad first impression.....
After reading the book, I understood why.
1) I abused the Quick-smiles that were mentioned as shallow in the first chapter. I would flash a smile that immediately disappear after three seconds (or less). I'm now working on the "flowing smile" technique :D :)
2) I simply had 0 skills in making small conversations. Usually the small talks end with me or the listener just running off with a "Oh I've gotta go now"
3) It was my specialty to ask overly obvious questions and make the most awkward comments at the worst times.....
4) The "instant history" technique was something I never used despite the various circumstances I catch myself in.
5) I fidgeted a lot and gave embarrassed smiles when I wasn't feeling embarrassed.
6) technique #88, "my goof your gain" was something I really should have used to ease the tension.....
well darn it. I'll just keep trying with this book's help. :D
