From Publishers Weekly
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.

We all can articulate the way to act. We know what being likeable looks like, Tim Sanders explains why so many people don't act likeable (even though they are nice people) and why they should start. Typically well researched, The L Factor provides insight into the advantages of being likeable, the reasons it works, and how to best achieve ...likeability.
This is a book filled with research findings, examples and is written in a very readable style. Most importantly though, the book comes at this topic with a decidedly positive and practical approach that we can raise our "L-Factor" (Likeability Factor) and gives you many suggestions for doing just that.
This book is a fun and easy read, yet it explores some very important principles that you probably haven't thought about before. Not only is this a great book for you as an individual, but if you participate in a business book club, this would likely make a great selection.
How would you rate yourself in each of these areas on a scale of 1 to 10?
Buy this book! It's a fast reading 200 page book that will have an immediate impact in your life no matter where you rate yourself on the Likeability scale.
