Professional reviews

"A smooth writer with a great sense of humor, the author is a social skills expert with several other snappy learning titles to her credit. Her reading somehow fits the "running-on-ice" experience that socializing is for many people. She's speed reading with impatience and verve, not nervousness. When mingling, she says, "Fake it 'til you make it" and push past your anxieties about meeting attractive or powerful people. The mental images and techniques offered sound inventive and powerful even though you've heard some of them before. Smart ideas about the art of fibbing, managing body language, escaping impossible situations, and remembering people's names combine with the author's unshakable vocal confidence to make this an essential guide for the socially ambitious.
