Summary of How to Talk to Anyone 

What’s inside

Find out what stands behind excellent communicators and begin implementing simple but effective techniques to feel confident no matter your goals or how many people you talk to.

Key points


No one will know what you want unless you say it

So much depends on communication. Verbal or non-verbal, our mastery of it defines whether we will be successful among other human beings. Moreover, it is inevitable because how else would we co-exist and progress as a society?

It seems pretty straightforward: just say what you want or need, thus putting others in the know. However, many of us fail to do that, feeling shy and insecure about ourselves. Leil Lowndes’ book is aimed at all people who think that they have not enough confidence to speak to others. Sometimes, you don’t even need immense willpower to strike up a meaningful conversation. Instead, you should learn the appropriate techniques of doing so.
Often, you can’t speak your mind not because you are timid, but because no one taught you the right way to do this.
“How to Talk to Anyone” comprises 92 techniques, wittily named by Leil Lowndes. Having read this summary, you will learn how to make people fall in love with you, appear genuine and credible, break into a tight crowd, and talk like a VIP.

Every chapter contains 4-5 techniques to help you get better at talking to people and making them do what you want — sometimes without actually saying what it is.
