Sanders's message in this follow-up to his bestselling Love Is the Killer App isn't exactly a revelation: people who are well liked are more apt to get what they want out of life than those who are disliked. However, Sanders does offer a valuable look at the four personality traits he says contribute to a person's likability—namely, friendliness, relevance (do you connect on interests or needs?), empathy and "realness" (genuineness or authenticity). Sanders, a Yahoo! leadership coach, is able to deconstruct complex subjects such as personality traits, and the book's value is in guiding readers toward understanding that likability isn't an accident of birth but a skill that can be learned (exercises are included). No doubt every reader knows someone they'd like to give this book to, and perhaps people who suspect their own L-factor is low will find their way to it, too.

As an introvert, this book was especially helpful. Introverts tend to be seen as mean and closed off, but all of us can be likeable and friendly. Likeability is also the key to moving ahead in the world, and getting things done. It is true that you are more likely to get a promotion or a job, or get something done if you are more likeable than another person.
One of the things he brough up, that is especially interesting as a Pastor was, "Our research shows that 80 percent of those surveyed don't believe something the first time they hear, see, or read it" (76).
In 1967, Kim Griffin did a study that showed, "There are 5 characteristics of a speaker that contribute to a listener's perception of trust. They are expertness, reliability, intention, dynamicism, and likeability" (84).
All in all, a good read, that is a quick read, so that moves it up the list.
