Summary:

For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: in controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial.
What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you met, a chance to experiment.
THE CHARISMA MYTH is a mix of fun stories, sound science, and practical tools. Cabane takes a hard scientific approach to a heretofore mystical topic, covering what charisma actually is, how it is learned, what its side effects are, and how to handle them.

    I sort of stumbled upon this book and WOW is it amazing. For me, it was hard because there's so many books about charisma and charm that it can be difficult for one to narrow it down. I HIGHLY recommend you give this one a shot. You'll learn things that make you say, "wow, I never thought of it that way" and you'll be able to realize what it is exactly that makes the charismatic people in your life so charming. The best part about this book is that it gives concrete examples of what you can do to improve your charisma. This has totally changed my mindset of the topic. And dare I say, this book has changed my life. I'll never think of charisma the same again and now I feel loaded with tools to instantly turn on my charm. Thank you Olivia for your lovely advice!
