Likeonomics is written in a way which engages the reader immediately with anecdotes people can relate to on a day to day basis. It describes the principles of likeability, as well as its applications, in a clear, complete, and concise manner. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good business read.

Great book on the humanization of business - with tons of stories! May 15 2012
By Michael Margolis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Likeonomics is a great book with tons and tons of stories. It's refreshing in style, full of substance, and includes lots of well-researched examples.

The problem with being "liked" is that the harder you try, the more unlikable you often become. It's sort of like being that guy you says, "trust me, baby". In Likeanomics, Rohit does a brilliant job of framing this process in business terms, while getting into the nitty-gritty of likeability. The bulk of Likeonomics is built around 5 principles framework called TRUST that stands for Truth, Relevance, Unselfishness, Simplicity, and Timing. Each principle is supported by dozens of examples, useful frameworks, and great distinctions. This book is also a great model of the evolution of "the book" as a product - with tons of bonus material online and lots of cool surprise content. It's like the story than never ends, for anyone who wants to really go deep down the rabbit hole of this unique topic.

Yes, it's true, Rohit's a friend, and he's written the book I'm too lazy to write. But I'm not too lazy to read and review it here on Amazon. Rohit's done more research and collected more examples than you could cram into 5 books combined. He's also constructed a 21st century book experience that will appeal to different readers (both analytical and creative).

Over the years, I've coached thousands of marketers and changemakers on how to tell their story, including how to write a kick-ass bio. Likeanomics is one of the few books that I can recommend since it offers a 21st century perspective on personal branding and authenticity that doesn't come off sounding like sunflowers or slick tricks. Rohit's really taking on the complex issues and paradox we face in the humanization of business. At the end of the day, as Rohit explains, we do business with the people we like. Even when people might not be as talented as the competent jerk. Loveable fools win everytime. It's just a matter of becoming comfortable with ourselves again. This book can definitely open the door for you.

Likeonomics is not just another book with a clever title June 7 2012
By R Sridhar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought Likeonomics about 20 days ago. I was hoping to finish the book in about 3 to 4 days. I could not do that. Not because it was a difficult to read book. On the contrary it is an extremely well written book.

While Rohit may not have explicitly said so being liked is different from being popular. I never thought about being liked is such a useful thing in building trust for instance. Rohit's advice on how to go about being liked is probably meant for brands. However I think it is equally relevant to people who want to change for the better.

For instance I am an Innovation Coach and I have a coachee who has a problem of being trusted. I found so many useful tips in the book for him.

I could not finish the book quickly because with each chapter Rohit triggered off so many ideas in mind - things I could use for various people, brands, services & situations. I liked the many useful references and stories too. I did not know for instance that the US government is focusing on better writing so much.

I found the book inspiring and I am sure I will put many of the ideas in it to practice.

I am glad I found the book by chance. (I was actually searching for books on "Earning trust and respect"!)

Indian As Apple Pie May 23 2012
By A. Gupta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
First, full disclosure. I am in this book. I mean, my company was highlighted in a chapter in this book. Another disclosure. I am a journalist. And trained not to lie. I know that this book will do well, because its premise is what I epitomize every day with my business and cookbooks: a real connection with my audience through truthful information and a desire to help rather than profit from this interaction. As I read this book, I'm learning even more. There's a woman who became a singing sensation through her YouTube videos - not overnight, but slowly and steadily as she consistently put material out and her fans consistently loved what she was doing. There's the lard salesman who had the unique ability to connect with his audience and now is a household name (you'll have to read the book for this one). Get this book and you will learn a lot. It seems intuitive. But if it truly was - wouldn't we all do it already? Whether you have a business, are looking to excel in your current job, or looking to find work through selling yourself to a future employer, this is a book you need!

Quick read with good illustrations and quotes June 12 2012
By Sherrie Rohde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Likeonomics is not a new concept but this book is full of great illustrations from various industries on how to achieve different aspects of essentially being a likeable human. I couldn't relate to all the stories, but really enjoyed those that did resonate with me. The quotes throughout each section were great and I added quite a few to my list of favorites. All in all, not not super deep (very quick and easy read), but a good book and one that I would recommend. :)

A VERY Likeable Book April 29 2012
By Dave Kerpen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As the author of Likeable Social Media and Likeable Business, I'd like to think I know a thing or two about the importance of being likeable in business. Rohit knows a lot about about likeability and writes with great passion, understanding, and humor. This book is full of stories that will inspire you, and actionable takeaways that will help you benefit from being more likeable. Likeonomics is a great read for entrepreneurs, for seasoned business vets, and for anyone looking to succeed in today's growingly complex business environment. I give this book two big orange thumbs up! Buy it now, you won't be disappointed!
