I liked the concepts, unfortunately alot of stuff gets repeated multiple times, id rather have it told just once and then i could relisten if i should wish.
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
A lot of the books out there about improving your social skills are either too clinical, aimed at younger kids, or are meant for professionals looking to network better. I read this through before giving it to my daughter. I like the author's overall approach and the constant emphasis on sincerity and kindness in relationships. He presents social skills in terms of fairly easy to remember principles, rather than a lot of theory, abstract ideas, or case studies (there are some personal examples though).
I'm aspergers but very good with the social skills due to my life-style. However, I detected that I could improve and like most aspergers could not see the obvious reasons why! This book fills in the gaps beautifully! It's still all so much hard work though! But that's not the books fault!
I appreciate the author's own experience in learning social skills having himself been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. Well-organized and well-written, starting with the basics and moving on into more advanced skill sets, building on the previous
This book is a good book. However, it would have been a great book if it weren't for the grammar mistakes. The grammar mistakes don't effect someone's ability to learn and understand the information from the book since they are minor and not very repetitive, but I still believe that most people would recommend some revision to really improve what this book has to offer. It's not perfect, but it is incredibly helpful.
This book has great info, and it's very helpful for those who are lacking with social skills. This book is contains advice and lessons about being able to simply socialize, and is not based too much on advanced concepts; it is fundamental.
The author writes simply and is very encouraging. I now have a better understanding of conversational skills and am putting to use what I learned here. My only complaint is that this book, as well as many others I have read lately, needs better proofreading! Years ago you never saw mistakes in a book. Now I find mistakes all the time. What's going on?
This is a fantastic book for getting started on social skills. I work as a mental health counselor in Portland, OR and I often work with individuals with disabilities. And whether there's the presence of a disability or not, this book has served as a great resource for clients looking to work on their social skills
Although the target audience seems to be young adults, I found that it was very appropriate for my daughter. I was a little nervous about the chapter on relationships, but was relieved that the author's values align fairly well with my own and I felt comfortable with my daughter reading it.
