    1. Quick review for a quick read Michelle Tillis Lederman s The 11 Laws of Likability was a valuable read for me on a collective note, with some caveats I really like reading business and productivity oriented literature, so this book was right up my alley when I requested it as a galley back in 2011 I recently came back to it as I was perusing books in the category and I really enjoyed the fact that not only the concepts of each law were spelled out, but accompanied by practical issues that she ob [...]

How can you network effectively Be likable.And while that may seem a bit flip, it really is the key As Lederman says, People do business with people they like If you are not likable and reliable, people will find someone else to do business with.The good news you can learn how to be likable, how to make your likability visible and apparent to others, and Lederman provides a nifty little primer for getting started And she starts with a personal revelation Some years back, when she was giving [...]

    3. Seeing the title of this book, I did wonder if it would be a manipulative, Get people to like you so they buy what you re selling Instead, the focus is on building genuine relationships with people Traditional networking is exhausting if it s not authentic and people probably won t do business with people they don t like or who are not genuine Lederman addressees these ideas in The 11 Laws of Likability.Building relationships should not be about the transactional what can I get but rather should [...]

    5. Remember when you were younger, adults would constantly remind you on how to act Put that down , say thank you, smile Refreshingly, I felt like this book acted as my adult, giving helpful reminders on how to be perceived better by others Yes, some of the 11 laws are common sense, things we already know, but this book does a great job at explaining them thoroughly and reminding the reader when, where and how to use them This book differs from other networking books because it isn t focused on out [...]

    6. Though geared for people in business, I initially asked for this title quite selfishly to share with my son Smart, funny, handsome if I do say so myself he often questions himself Selling himself short, he could brush up on some people skills as well.Reading it through the lense of a mom looking for tips to help her child, I m sure I read it differently than another reader who picked it up for business purposes Either way, The 11 Laws of Likability is specific and helpful Told through a useful v [...]

    10. I actually listened to this as an audiobook, and despite the helpfulness of the content, I only finished it by sheer bloodymindedness The reader of the audiobook was a male with a really annoying voice, and having it read to me made me want to claw my face off On the other hand, this is the book I wish I had had as a teenager young adult trying to figure out how to get along with strangers, and how this all worked even though this is a book about how to get along professionally rather than perso [...]

    11. If you do any sort of networking in your job, this book is for you Lederman, a professional trainer and coach, realized the key to networking is likability and in her 11 Laws, outlines the ways you can ensure you make strong connections Like all business and self help books, a lot of the advice seems like common sense, especially to extroverts who are good at networking anyway However, taken as a whole, the 11 laws can inspire you to be open to every potential new contact Lederman does a great j [...]

    14. The pretend superficial conversations really broke the book for me I don t know if these were real situation but they seemed so fake to me There might be a few good points that get a bit deeper, but it seems lost in the vastness of superficiality.The last nail in the coffin were the several parts of the book analyzing social media I don t remember the exact line, but it went along the lines Facebook is a social networking platform with no other agenda than connecting people I laughed out loud wi [...]

    15. The key message in this book Engaged, meaningful connections aren t about you, but about relationships Connecting with people and forging productive networks require you to seek out shared interests, listen actively and set a foundation for trust Actionable advice Make a list of three new people you met in the past two weeks.Keeping track of the people you meet is a great way to keep your networking on point After you make such a list, you can reach out to each of the people before the week is o [...]

    17. I have listened to audio version of this book.I really liked this book It describes genuine way to connect with other people.There is one big point though this book is mostly aimed on people, whose job involves interacting with others Like taking part in conferences, training session and so on Also, I think, it is for those, who like acquiring new contacts and getting to know new people.Some of advices seemed to me rather forced and in certain cases even annoying, but most of them are quite good [...]

    18. Most of this is common sense, but it s a good refresher on what behaviors help you to establish better interpersonal relationships Few points apply exclusively to those in the business world, so the advice can apply to most people There is a short stint on how social networking operates and how it is useful, which may be extremely useful for some or redundant for others.

    19. Eleven laws rooted in common sense The method the author uses is to explain the law, provide examples from her own experience, and then follow up with applications that help the reader recognize how the law is manifested in themselves, and then methods, quizzes, or applications to exercise it in real life Reviewedhere.

    20. Good book, and better than I expected If, like me, you tend to be introverted, there is a lot of useful content here for you.Much of it is common sense, but a good reinforcement, nicely presented I listened to the audio version and wouldn t mind re listening, or reading.

    21. I thought this would be about personal connections, but it comes back to networking and it s just a rehash of things I already knew It s a good book if you ve never read anything else on networking or making friends God, it sounds so sad when I put it like that.

    22. Blah blah blah, same after same, I should remind myself to wait for books with good and new scientific research than reading countless cliches.

    23. Nice short reminder of things we often forget during new encounters Most enjoyed the networking piece and what do you do for others.

    24. Some interesting tips I found the discussion of how friends have expectations of each other and how things fall apart when those expectations aren t met.
