How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds by Nicholas Boothman

How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds by Nicholas Boothman is aimed to help people who want to make that good first impression. If this is something you need help with, this is a great book to help you do just that.

Book Description
“Yes, it really works: Nicholas Boothman's breakthrough program of "rapport by design" really does show you how to make people like you in 90 seconds or less. Now it's available in paperback, with a newly created workbook section based on the author's hundreds of workshops.

Whether selling, managing, applying to college, looking for a job—or looking for a soulmate—the secret of success is connecting with other people. Nicholas Boothman shows exactly how to make the best out of any relationship's most critical moment—those first 90 seconds that make up a first impression. Armed with his program, readers learn how to establish immediate trust by synchronizing voice tone and body language; the power of a Really Useful Attitude; and how to get people talking and keep them talking. He discusses eye cues, the magic of opposites attracting, and sensory preferences—some of us are Visual people, others are Kinesthetic (responding most to the sense of touch), and a few are Auditory. So when you say "I see what you mean" to a Visual, you’re really speaking his or her language.” – How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds

My Thoughts
How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds can help people make better first impressions by doing small changes when they first meet someone and could even help with making another impression on people (which is harder to change but not impossible).

It isn’t easy, it will take time and practice to master, and if you are shy, it will be even harder. However, the workshop exercises included in this book are a great push towards learning how to make a better impression and essentially make people like you. This isn’t a book that is only read. You will have to take action to get any use out of it.

If you are having problems with social interactions and need some help, this is a really great book to help give you that push you need to make better first impressions.
