About the Author
I'm Daniel Wendler, and I'm the author of ImproveYourSocialSkills.com. I believe everyone deserves a place where they belong, so I wrote Improve Your Skills to give people the tools they need to connect with others. I overcame the social challenges of Asperger's through intensive study of social skills, and Improve Your Social Skills is based in my own experience. I like people, so feel free to get in touch at DanielWendler.com. If you'd like to learn more about my story, check out a TEDx talk I gave on my life at bit.ly/tedxdan or read what I believe at ImproveYourSocialSkills.com/Manifesto Thanks, and good luck as you improve your social skills!

Now coming to be more specific about the book:
This book has multiple areas covering how to make your first conversation. You definitely feel confident meeting new people after reading this book. But in the other side, I feel I could not get enough guidance from this book on how can I continue meeting same person day over day and strengthen the relationship. This is not that the book has not covered it, but still i feel I need more training or reading on this area.
Over all this is a great book and definitely this book alone can’t make one social and so practice as advised by the author. Happy reading!!!

While many guides meticulously go through each and every body signal a person may project, this guide simply breaks down body language into two categories - "open" and "closed." Done! Now instead of over-analyzing someone's body language, I can focus on the other person and the conversation!
While many guides promote tricks and gimmicks to put people down and artificially project confidence, Improve Your Social Skills stresses the importance of respect and relationship. I don't have to pretend to be someone else or put on airs or play a part. Instead, this guide encourages me to be my best self and make fruitful and lasting friendships with others to help them be their best selves, too.
Although it would have been nice to see some tips or examples regarding workplace behavior and professionalism, I love this guide for the subjects it does cover. This guide is unlike any other, and I can't recommend it enough.
I found the conversational process of using questions, which the author calls “invitations,” and the telling of something from our own experience that opens the conversation up for our partner to comment on or question, which the author calls “inspirations,” to be very helpful when breaking down the dynamic of a conversation.
Being frequently in situations that require entering into a group conversation, such as at dinner parties or professional meetings, the section on helpful ways to enter into those group conversations, and also on the importance of including others in group conversations that we have already entered into, was very useful.
One part of the book speaks to gauging the “energy level” of the person or group that you are entering into a conversation with. This is something I hadn’t thought of before, but is going to become an important part of my own process of entering into conversations and relationships.
Finally, the chapters on meeting new friends and how to decide if those friendships are going to be healthy, along with how to maintain and nurture those relationships was the most satisfying to me personally. I have found that as you age, the process of identifying who might be a good friend and then figuring out how to maintain that friendship along with all the other priorities of life can be very difficult. I plan on utilizing the helpful information in those chapters to gain a new friendship and to nurture it once started.
Bravo on a great book Daniel!
