How to be Likeable: The Ultimate Guide to Connecting, Relating, and Creating Authentic Lasting Relationships with People by Clayton Geoffreys – Review


Blurb:

In How to be Likeable: The Ultimate Guide to Connecting, Relating, and Creating Authentic Lasting Relationships with People, you’ll learn the fundamentals of how to be more outgoing and well received by others. This book covers a variety of topics including why social interaction is important, how to conquer social anxiety, and actionable ways to leave lasting first impressions. Life is not meant to be spent alone. Meeting new people and making new friends can be fun and exciting when you understand how to do it. Having confidence is not a skill gained overnight but it can be developed and in this book we’ll address the most common areas of improvement people who are naturally shy can address head on to become more open to meeting new people. Introducing yourself to new people shouldn’t be stressful; it should be fun! So stop waiting to change your life, and change your life today.

My Review:

A book to aid in learning the skills that most people learned in high school, this book is really more for social outcasts and people who think too much about what they’re doing to actually make friends and be likeable. It’s well-written, with lots of hints and tips, but let’s be honest, how many people are going to like you if you’re spending your whole conversation/relationship trying to manipulate them into it?
Very helpful for people with crippling anxiety or paranoia, but if you just want a confidence boost, beware. This book could send you backwards, just by its very nature. People like people who are themselves, not people who are trying to be the best optimal friend. One day your facade can crack, and they’ll be betrayed because they don’t actually know you.
But again, if you have crippling anxiety about meeting new people, or you’re paranoid that no one will ever like you, give this book a try. It does hand out some rather good information for your situation.

3.5/5
