How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less

Book Reviews: The “secret” of success is not very hard to figure out. The better you are at connecting with other people, the better the quality of your life.

The author first discovered the secrets of getting along with people during my career as a fashion and advertising photographer. Whether it was working with a single model for a page in Vogue or 400 people aboard a ship to promote a Norwegian cruise line, it was obvious that for me photography was more about clicking with people than about clicking with a camera. What’s more, it didn’t matter if the shoot was taking place in the lobby of the Ritz Hotel in San Francisco or a ramshackle hut on the side of a mountain in Africa: the principles for establishing rapport were universal.

For as long as the author can remember, the author has found it easy to get along with people. Could it be a gift? Is there such a thing as a natural talent for getting along with people, or is it something the authors learn along the way? And if it can be learned, can it be taught? The author decided to find out.

The author knew from 25 years of shooting still photographs for magazines all over the world that attitude and body language is paramount to creating a strong visual impression—magazine ads have less than two seconds to capture the reader’s attention. The author was also aware that there was a way of using body language and voice tone to make perfect strangers feel comfortable and cooperative. My third realization was that a few well-chosen words could evoke expression, mood and action in almost any subject. With these insights under my belt, the author decided to look a little deeper. Why is it easier to get on with some people than with others? Why can THE AUTHOR have an interesting conversation with a person I’ve just met, while someone else might dismiss that same person as boring or threatening? Clearly, something must be happening on a level beyond our conscious awareness, but what is it? It was at this point in my quest that THE AUTHOR came across the early work of Drs. Richard Bandler and John Grinder at UCLA in a subject with the unwieldy name of Neuro- Linguistic Programming, NLP for short. Many of the things THE AUTHOR had been doing intuitively as a photographer, these two men and their colleagues had documented and analyzed as “the art and science of personal excellence.” Among a fountain of new insights, they revealed that everyone has a “favorite sense.” Find this sense and you have the key to unlock a person’s heart and mind.

As my new path became clearer, THE AUTHOR set aside my cameras and resolved to focus on how people work on the inside as well as how they look on the outside. Over the next few years, THE AUTHOR studied with Dr. Bandler in London and New York and earned a license as a Master Practitioner of NLP. THE AUTHOR studied Irresistible Language Patterns in the United States, Canada and England, and delved into everything to do with the brain’s part in human connectivity. THE AUTHOR worked with actors, comedians and drama teachers in America and storytellers in Africa to adapt improvisational drills into exercises that enhance conversational skills.

Since then THE AUTHOR have gone on to give seminars and talks all over the world, working with all kinds of groups and individuals from sales teams to teachers, from leaders of organizations who thought they knew it all to children so shy that people thought they were dim-witted. And one thing became very clear: making people like you in 90 seconds or less is a skill that can be taught to anyone in a natural, easy way.

Over and over THE AUTHOR have been told, “Nick, this is amazing. Why don’t you write it down?” Well, THE AUTHOR listened, and THE AUTHOR have. And here it is.

Selected Reviews:

This book is like a “motivational” seminar: all gimmick and no substance. The message is common sense with some simplistic psychology. There are a few helpful things (ask questions that invite full answers, show you’re listening to the person talking without parroting them, mimic their body language subtly to gain trust, etc.) but it’s buried in the author’s self-congratulation about what an awesome communicator he is and constant summaries of what he’s mentioned. This book is written at an
