Description

"You'll not only break the ice, you'll melt it away with your new skills." -Larry King

"The lost art of verbal communication may be revitalized by Leil Lowndes." -Harvey McKay, author of How to Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive

What is that magic quality that makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover). In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their “Midas touch?”

What it boils down to is a more skillful way of dealing with people.

The author has spent her career teaching people how to communicate for success. In her book How to Talk to Anyone, Lowndes offers 92 easy and effective sure-fire success techniques - she takes the listener from first meeting all the way up to sophisticated techniques used by the big winners in life. In this information-packed audiobook you’ll find:

  • 9 ways to make a dynamite first impression
  • 14 ways to master small talk, “big talk,” and body language
  • 14 ways to walk and talk like a VIP or celebrity
  • 6 ways to sound like an insider in any crowd
  • 7 ways to establish deep subliminal rapport with anyone
  • 9 ways to feed someone’s ego (and know when NOT to!)
  • 11 ways to make your phone a powerful communications tool
  • 15 ways to work a party like a politician works a room
  • 7 ways to talk with tigers and not get eaten alive

In her trademark entertaining and straight-shooting style, Leil gives the techniques catchy names so you’ll remember them when you really need them, including: “Rubberneck the Room,” “Be a Copyclass,” “Come Hither Hands,” “Bare Their Hot Button,” “The Great Scorecard in the Sky,” and “Play the Tombstone Game,” for big success in your social life, romance, and business.

How to Talk to Anyone, which is an update of her popular book, Talking the Winner's Way (see the 5-star reviews of the latter) is based on solid research about techniques that work!

By the way, don't confuse How to Talk to Anyone with one of Leil's previous books, How to Talk to Anybody About Anything. This one is completely different!

Clair concis

Ce livre est relativement clair et concis, les 92 points mériteraient juste un petit résumé globale à la fin. La lectrice est bien et claire.

Indispensable

Cet ouvrage est un outil indispensable pour les personnes qui n'ont pas acquis de façon instinctive tous les codes qui régissent les relations interpersonnelles. Moins utile pour les personnes disposant déjà d'une très grande intelligence sociale.

Good info, but painful to listen to

Any additional comments?

I found some good information in this book, but I would have found it SO MUCH BETTER if the 92 tricks were listed instead of having to listen to this entire book. Part of the problem is that 92 tips and tricks are far too many to remember. There are a lot of good pointers, but there are way too many ideas expressed here. More detailed examples and explanations of fewer tips and tricks would probably be more effective... would make them easier to incorporate into actual interpersonal communications.

But far worse is her old-timey way of writing (and presumably speaking). Most of the reviews are correct... the language she uses is so outdated (I've never heard the word 'golly' so many times in my life), the generalizations are pain (and I am anything but PC), and her constant use of alliteration is cringe-worthy (and I almost always appreciate alliteration). I don't believe 90% of her stories about this friend or that acquaintance. They just sound so stilted. And if it wasn't for a few awkward uses of modern-day terms, I'd think this book was written in Dale Carnegie's day (Amazon says the book was released in 2003). She may be an expert in modern-day communication, but she sounds like she belongs in a 1940s newsreel.

I'm only through #57, and I may try to find the list online to get the rest of them without subjecting myself to more uses of terms like 'big winners' and 'fat cats.' Glad I got it on-sale.

Can I get my credit back?

This book is corny and after listening to it for 30 mins I was ready to stop but continued on for another 30 mins. Overall get a book from grant cardone. Any book and you'll pick up similar tips but with great presentation

Hard to take seriously

Sorry, but I have a hard time taking the author seriously when she refers to martial artists having to register their hands as lethal weapons (urban legend), bats having superior eyes that can see in the dark better than we can (they don't, they are just using their ears to navigate with sonar), lovers referring to each other as "my turtledove" (what is this... the 40's???), advising her listeners to answer the phone with a polite but flat voice then wait until they hear who it is on the line before gushing with pretend happiness (who doesn't have Call ID these days?), or making sexist comments about how women don't understand football analogies but can talk about childbirth all day. When she talked about a customer calling her to complain that "one of her tapes had broken", I checked the publication date of the book thinking it would be from the 80's but to my surprise the publication date is actually 2015 with a copyright date of 2003. If that's true and she's still referring to things that have been outdated for decades, I don't know how much of her advice I really want to trust.

The author may be a legit communications expert, but she lost a lot of credibility with me due to her narrow-mindedness, overgeneralization, and outdated references. The two nicest things I can say about this book is that it's short enough to be tolerable... and I got it on sale. Don't spend your credit on this one.

Less about how to talk to anyone and more about playing the game

The book makes some good points, however, it also comes across as very manipulative and insincere. Many of the tactics that are portrayed as bulletproof can easily be seen through. It's more about how to play the "game."

It could do with some editing

Some of this is very helpful and might change the way you interact with people. But it needs cutting down it seems very longwinded and repetitive in parts. It is also a little dated.

Too self important

This book has a few good tips, but the author is far too pretentious for me. I expected a book with communication tips (of which there are some), but the book is much more about manipulating people to benefit oneself.

superficial

92 tricks? Is that really practical to remember? A lot of information in this story was repeated or focused on superficial manipulation of others. I love books on audible but this was a real struggle to finish.

Trite, base advice

Perhaps one or two items worth considering. We get a collection of "just so" stories or good and bad behaviors and personal dictums on appropriate actions and behaviors that perhaps are actually a little more flexible than the author implies. Lastly - the author offers advice on complimenting people that would be very inappropriate in the modern workplace. Namely, complimenting some physical trait of a person. Though it may be appropriate at a party or bar, this is a modern workplace "never ever go".

Both good and bad

Book started out very interesting. Then throughout the book, there were long patches of boring and useless information. Some of her advice seemed pretty far fetched for me. She was a terrible name dropper. I guess she was trying to elevate her status and believability, but it turned me off. I think that would not be advice she would ever offer.

I didn't care for the narrator. I sped it up to 1.25-1.50. Much better at this speed.

It's worth a listen but be prepared to skip to the end of different chapters if it gets a little weird.

so outdated

Has How to Talk to Anyone turned you off from other books in this genre?

I had to look at the date it was written and couldn't believe it was 2015. I thought it was something from the 30's or 40's. Sorry, but a good one to go to sleep with.

Gute Tipps jedoch unstrukturiert

Das Hörbuch an sich hat mir sehr gut gefallen, doch die Strukturierung stört mich doch extrem. Vor allem bei dieser Art von Ratgeber sollte man für die jeweiligen Punkte passende Überschriften aussuchen weil der Zuhörer dem einen oder anderen Rat doch gerne wiederholen möchte, und nicht mit Stift und Papier das ganze Hörbuch mitschreibt. "Kapitel 1..2...3...4" usw. helfen einem nunmal einfach nicht wenn man z.B den Tipp für Augenkontakt wieder hören möchte.
Empfehle also eher die gedruckte Version zu lesen

Sehr informativ mit hands on approach

Sehr empfehlenswertes audio book, welches Konversationen mit neuen Augen und Ohren betrachten lässt. Ich habe zuvor bereits Bücher wie Wie man Freunde gewinnt und Menschen beeinflusst oder A introduction to NLP gelesen. In How to talk to anyone werden viele Erkenntnisse vertieft und überholt dargestellt.

good but NOT better than the classics

while this book is based on techniques about how to be likeable, the classic "how to win friends and influence people" was more about principles.
Some advice was really useful though.
The speaker was great. listening at 1.5x the speed was unproblematic. she has a great pronunciation and speaks very clearly.

Ok

Sehr viel Triviales was 90% der Menschheit instinktiv schon macht. Aber schadet nicht sich dessen bewusst zu sein. Ein paar gute (neue) Tricks sind auch dabei.

Great content excellently presented

If you're interested in improving your communication with others and you're ready to put in some effort, this book is for you. Already proved as an invaluable help to me, and I decided to listen to it again immediately after finishing, because there is just so much content that I more than likely missed a part of it.

It's really well-written and easy to understand. It contains a short summary for every "trick" with some guidance in how to use it. I would change not a word of this book. Recommended!

Unnecessary sarcasm and playing with the words

While the book has some good points to offer, author's non-stop sarcasm, playing with the words, trying to be funny when it's absolutely unnecessary, makes it extremely annoying.
interestingly in the book, author herself refers to such people as linguistics bums!

Zu sehr in Details verloren

die Sprecherin nervt nach einer Weile. nicht nur durch ihre eigenen Begriffe sondern auch durch die Intonation.
viel zu oft werden Nebensächlichkeiten breit geklopft.
ja es hat auch gute Inhalte!
dennoch bin ich enttäuscht.
geht einfach sehr stark in die Richtung von Dale Carnegie
