Summary:

These days, many of us find it easier to avoid face-to-face contact in favor of technological shortcuts.

Why take the trouble to meet someone in person when we can simply send an email or a text? But as Michael Gelb argues in this compelling book, the meaningful relationships that come from real interaction are the basis of success.

In The Art of Connection, Gelb offers readers seven methods of developing better rapport in their professional and personal lives. Each chapter covers a specific technique and then illustrates it with memorable stories, relevant scientific research, and hands-on exercises that allow readers to apply their new skills. Most important, Gelb reminds us that developing rapport with others is not just a business tool to enhance productivity but a valuable end in itself.

By truly connecting with others, we broaden our own humanity as well as connect with a deeper part of ourselves.
