From the Back Cover

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

"The ultimate guide to the thinking person . . . an invaluable tool for conversations."
--Sally Jesse Raphael

Become a master communicator and succeed in life, love, and business

Have you ever admired those successful people who seem to have it all? You see them chatting confidently at parties and being listened to in business meetings. They're the ones with the best jobs, nicest parties, and most interesting friends.

But wait a minute. They're not necessarily smarter than you or even better looking. What it comes down to is their more skillful way of communicating with other people. Now How to Talk to Anyone reveals the secrets of successful communication. With Leil Lowndes's ninety-two easy and effective techniques, you will discover how to become a master communicator in life, love, and business.

Combining the latest research with Leil's trademark wit and warm-hearted observations of human foibles, How to Talk to Anyone shows you how to:

  • Make an unforgettable entrance and meet the people you want to meet
  • Sound like an insider in any crowd, no matter how little you have in common
  • Use body language to captivate audiences of all sizes
  • Work a party the way a politician works a room
  • Always come across confident, credible, and charismatic wherever you are

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!

Format: Paperback
You will enjoy this book. I bought it on clearance at a book store and hoped it would be worth it for the plane ride. It has proved to be fantastic. I have never prided myself on being good at small talk or at introductions, but Lowndes gives you numerous practical tips which can be easily and immediately applied. Although many of these tactics are specifically meant for introductions and first impressions, they can also be used for daily contact with acquaintances and friends as well. (It also feels good to come across some of the tricks and know that you already have been doing that). Unless you live in a cave, you're conversations with others will be more valuable to you than money you use to get this book

If you have never read a sales book, then this book is an okay start. It also has some tips on "small talk" that are pretty decent, but you can get these tips for free from other various websites. Also, I feel that the other rambles a bit. I bet s/he could have written the same info in half the space. I'd buy Dale Carnegie and/or Jeffrey's Gitomer's The Little Red Salesbook instead.

There are a lot of books on theories and what you SHOULD DO, this book as well as "Talking the Winners Way" offers some REAL steps on how to communicate better! It gives you practical advice and doesn't bombard you with theories or idealism, but gets direct to the point about the behaviors that you have to exhibit and use in order to change your current communication style. What to change to be "better" at something? Get this book! I can not recommend it enough!

I can't say enough about how this book has helped me in 2003. It has straightened me up and I'm flying right. Last week I received an award for "Most Improved" in community adjustment work I do at a hospital in New York. Reading the book only halfway through gave me the sense of direction and confidence I needed that I had to contact the author herself and thank her. You probably will too.

I loved this book!! It was one that I couldn't put down. It is a book on communication skills that is both informative and funny. Leil Lowndes has a fantastic way of teaching what to do/say and what not to do/say in all different situations. This book is for definate must read for every age group, from teenagers up. Also excellent is her book How To Make Anyone Fall In Love With You.

80 of 106 people found the following review helpful By Hugo Trepanier on Feb. 11 2006
Format: Paperback
As a rather shy guy in his 20's who often faces difficulty initiating captivating conversations, I picked up this book hoping to learn a few fine tricks that would broaden my level of human understanding. Exceedingly good reader reviews admittedly produced high expectations, unfortunately only met with lukewarm results. It is not especially bad; just don't expect a complete makeover of your interactions with people, and be aware that it may apply to some people more than others.
The positive aspects:
- Concise, good to read in various small instalments and take time to reflect on the different techniques, appreciate them, and even make some real-life experiments in-between reading sessions. Easily discard the ones that don't make sense to your particular way of life.
- Contains some really good new ideas and excellent techniques that you can use to effectively communicate with people in various situations, things to keep in mind, blunders to avoid and good postures to adopt. One should not undermine the potential life-enhancing benefits of reading the few truly excellent gems.
- Several of these guidelines appear to be simple common sense if you have any perceptive amount of social experience, but it's appreciated to be reminded about these things by an external source to better grasp their implications.
- Some amusing anecdotes will make you laugh, such as the businesswoman's encounter with a group of potential Japanese partners.
The negative aspects:
- Early on, the tone gave me the impression of a much older, chiefly superficial woman, who does not fundamentally encourage having any sense of humour.
