Charisma On Command: Inspire, Impress, and Energize Everyone You Meet Reviews
Sehr gute Tipps zu Charisma. Kann man sofort anwenden und bewirken tatsächlich einen Unterschied.Habe bereits Veränderungen bemerkt im Umgang mit Freunden und neuen Bekanntschaften.Danke!
This book is simply life-changing. You will see the results immediately. If you do not belive me then go to the part: Turning specific fellings on at a Moment's notice.And after this part you will know why I love this book so much!
I loved this book ! A friend of mine recommended it to me because I want to improve my public speaking skills. Charlie Houpert gives a a vivid description about what a charismatic appearance really comes down to. The book is filled with lots of real life examples in order to better comprehend the illustrated concepts.The only thing I did not like was the lack of page numbers.
Compared to other books on charisma on the market, this book is...1. More actionable.There is a 30-day action guide at the end, like a workout plan for your charisma skills.2. More realistic and nuanced in its advice.Not the typical "Make more eye contact!" quips, nor the vague Dale Carnegie advice on "Show interest in the other person by asking them questions"--the authors actually go into detail on crucial things you need to do before asking people about themselves, in order to have them actually care about giving good answers..3. Easier and faster to read.The book makes an important distinction between mindset (inside) vs. behavior (outside). If you have all the "right" behavior but you don't have the inner mindset to match it, people will notice the incongruence, and feel that it lacks in authenticity. For example, the first part detailed 12 Charismatic Convictions, all of which were related to mindset rather than behavior:- I'm okay. I will be okay.- I care more about my character than the opinions of others.- I have impeccable integrity.- Don't convince.- Communicate your purpose.- Break solemnity and be fun.- Broach taboo topics.- Demonstrate clear boundaries.- Break down physical barriers.- Be liberal with your praise.- Let others know when you're nervous, pissed, or hurt.- Reveal your flaws.Only then is there discussion of outer behaviors to practice (body language, style of dress, conversational techniques). Things I started using immediately were:- Eye contact, beyond the basics: How to make eye contact while coming across as "competent" and "confident", instead of "creepy" (the Bill Clinton "squint" vs. wide-eyed deer-in-headlights look).- The 3 types of conversations (news, fun, values), and when it is appropriate to use each (except news--never fall into the "news" type of conversation)- Answer the 3 most common questions in a way that hooks others' interest immediately ("How are you?", "Where are you from?", and "What do you do?")The only thing that I wish was in the book is a walkthrough of how to lead and command in a group environment.
Great book! Charlie's advice is inspiring, realistic, actionable, and presented in a clear, engaging way. Not too much new content if you watch Charisma on Command on Youtube or read Charlie's blog, but it's definitely useful to have the information in book form. The action guide at the end is incredibly useful, you can follow the steps to live with charisma of just read about it.The only thing I would have changed is that while most of Charlie's advice is universal (at least for Western culture), some parts were tailored toward men, and little to none toward women. For example, he writes about deepening your voice, being louder than normal when you speak, lifting at the gym to gain muscle mass -- and leaves it unclear whether women should follow this advice as well. I don't think this is a bad thing - Charlie's just writing what he knows best, and of course part of it comes from his experience being a dude. But if you just so happen to be a dudette looking for more specific advice to increase your attractiveness and/or become a powerful charismatic leader while maintaining some 'traditional femininity', look elsewhere.
I've read numerous books on Communication, Body Language, and Charisma over the years and by far this is the most actionable I've read in a very long time. Not only does the Charlie lay out a step by step action plan to follow but does so while walking you through his personal journey of transformation.I'm only on day 15 of the exercises in the back of the book but have already seen an demonstrable impact in the interactions with the people around me.My only recommendation would be a more realistic assessment of the level of effort required from exercises. While most of the ones I've done so far could easily be done in a few minutes, I found that others took much longer than advertised due in order to really get the most out of them. But as another poster commented, you really do get out of it what you put in. If you're looking to improve though and are willing to put in even a little bit of effort, definitely worth the read.
As a person who struggles with social anxiety, I was eager to pick this book up. I'm glad I did. It's well written and easy to read. It's filled with stories and different examples of successful people. It explains that Charisma is not a gift, it is simply a skill, and that anyone can develop it with the right tools. In addition, it provides you with some practical exercises to get rid of the fear of failure, public opinion.
This book has some good tips. I haven't read any other books on a similar topic, so I can't say how many tips are unique and how many are derivative. But I did find the book lacked a certain polish. For example, there's no page numbers, and I couldn't even find the author's name anywhere. In terms of writing, it was a mixed bag. Too many times it felt like a guide written by youth, for youth, on how to "get chicks", or "become the cool guy," like it belonged in the dorms rather than the office. I would have liked to see more references to scientific literature, and fewer personal examples. Other times it had practical advice for professionals. Overall, it was jut ok. Although I do think with more experience and polish, the author will eventually write a book worth recommending.
