An interesting read...and that's it
21 April 2019
This book is an interesting read and one can learn useful skills on how to make friends.
However, I felt I don’t need to make friends with everybody and all kind of people. The book basically tells you to be agreeable to everybody, find something to honestly like about them and compliment them on it, talk about their interests only and, practically, act like a people pleaser all the time.
The advice given in the book is valuable to the sales person who need to please all type of people. It may also be good for people who have personality issues and finds it difficult to make friends.
I would like to make friends by being myself and risking rejection. I would like to influence people in honest way without any manipulation and pretending.
Having said that, the book is an interesting read and not all garbage.
