This yields a short term high in confidence and pride (after trials and errors in implementing them) but you can't get further than that in building any form of relationships(career, friendship, romance) that would last or even work in the long term.
The author started out strong, with some very insightful things to do. However, as the book progressed, there were a lot of odd tips. For instance, one of the tips were to never partake in teasing - this is an odd generalisation as in many cultures, this is a form of friendly joking that is acceptable. Or this gem from "Call a spade, a spade" chapter - "Big Cats are anatomically correct ... they'll say breasts when they mean breast".
Overall, a good read, but definitely take some tips with a large grain of salt
the author does make reference to Dale Carnegie's book which I don't mind and yes the book was written in the 1950's but found there was a little bit of trashing his work because it was written that far back. There are sections which I do not think is practical to avoid for example when the waiter drops the tray of food on the table and the whole restaurant is starring because of what happened there is no way people on the table will ignore what has happened and just carry on their conversation. If that really happened the Big Bosses are not HUMAN!!!! There are many new symbols and acronyms used which fall in text and sometimes you lose track of what that is. There are many sections within the book but each chapter is chunked quite well and keeps you engaged. I really liked the way the chapters are written and the recap of the technique at the end of the chapter is great way to consolidate the chapter/technique.
In conclusion, I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to people who are shy, in sales, business and for people looking for that confidence when meeting new people.
