Based mainly on sense and sensibility, and bringing nothing new to the table after reading the classical books on people Maybe useful for shy people or people who need some push to start interacting.Also, the author goes on way too much on her experiences, and some of the times, in a very judgemental way.

particular subject it may be even THE ultimate textbook Susan RoAne covered everything from exhibits via high school reunions to funeral services Wow, what a tremendous experience Susan was on schedule formeetings than I changed diapers and changed a lot of them.But this is not some boring textbook which can substitute for a soothing lullaby Not at all This book is packed with both fun and interesting stories Most of them came directly from Susan s rich array of experiences That makes the book far from the dreadful image of a textbook.First some areas where it may have fell short for some users As a representative of a relatively young generation I found her explanations of different social platforms boring I skimmed through these and went straight tomeaty parts But someone in his sixties may feel exactly opposite.I also find the book a bit repetitive, but I m not the kind of guy who shun from repetition It helps to retain the lessons longer.Connecting is hard, but she makes it easySusan also writes vividly When she admits that mingling and talking to strangers is hard, I wholeheartedly agree with her I was a shrinking violet who transformed into a confident person, so I went through quite a lot 30 months ago I couldn t say Hi to a stranger.When Susan explains how to make it happen, it sounds fun and easy I vote for her methods I verified everything she teaches every trick from her arsenal, which I knew and used worked as she prescribed And I got some interesting results too Since shrinking violet times I built a couple of deep friendships by starting conversations on a train to work I also spoke with strangers about life death issues.Working a room masteryBut it was just the introductory part of the book From there the author goes into room working and that s where her mastery really shows She has a knack for breaking high plane ideas into actionable items Susan has also a tendency to make a list whenever possible There are an enormous number of lists and action steps included And after each chapter you will find a quick summary, again in bullet points or the form of list, which makes for easy reading.It s really amazing how she was able to systematize and distill such intangible topic as human relationships.Her ideas comes down to common sense You won t find there any backbreaking manipulation techniques which can be mastered only by years of training I appreciate that because of the following reasons Common sense is nowadays uncommon I don t really know what common sense calls for in many situations for example I have never been on reunion or a trade show.I loved Susan s advice on working virtual rooms I m not too bad in working them myself I ve been noticed by several people with 6 and 7 figure income businesses and obtained their help I recognized in her advice my approach just be genuine.Not one read kind of a bookI m sure I ll be going back to How to Work a Room time after time The structure of book makes it easy to find just a particular kind of room and refresh the lesson in your mind Now, before any new event I ll take this book and skim an appropriate chapter.If you are thinking about any career involving face to face contact with people and most of careers demands at least basic social skills How to Work a Room is a must read Reading this was quite helpful.A few things that I ve learned about great communication Be a host make other people comfortable Be prepared reading the news, preparing your own introduction Be genuine and respectful If you want to go through the quick tips of the whole book Susan RoAne writes two great segments at the end to summarise the book. Disclaimer I met Susan RoAne on a Southwest Flight from SFO to LA on December 30, 2013 enroute to the 2014 Rose Bowl game in Pasadena between Stanford and Michigan State Susan and I spoke for the duration of the flight about Stanford University, its football team and the exploits of her grandson Shayne Stov who was a key leader on the Stanford defensive team I am a third generation Stanford graduate Class of 76 Near the end of the flight, Susan informed me she was an author of business Disclaimer I met Susan RoAne on a Southwest Flight from SFO to LA on December 30, 2013 enroute to the 2014 Rose Bowl game in Pasadena between Stanford and Michigan State Susan and I spoke for the duration of the flight about Stanford University, its football team and the exploits of her grandson Shayne Stov who was a key leader on the Stanford defensive team I am a third generation Stanford graduate Class of 76 Near the end of the flight, Susan informed me she was an author of business books She shared the planned cover of this book with me which featured a prominent endorsement by another best selling business author guru, my Stanford 76 classmate, Guy Kawasaki I was not given a free copy of the book but put it on my GoodReads to reads.Admittedly, the author and I share common passions and acquaintances I have read nearly all of Guy s ground breaking books Reality Check and Enchantmentthan once and worship the cyberspace he inhabits Susan bowled me over with her narrative on that flight but spenttime asking about my background When she learned I lived in Singapore, she rattled off a names and found mutual friends We only had one serious disagreement over the Stanford Band she grimaced, I smiled Susan not only knows how to work rooms, she can work planes and connect with people She certainly pushed the right buttons with me But then I might be slightly biased.This is a book for all ages From those nervous high school wallflowers and freshly minted graduate school greenhorns to those weathered, scarred veterans like me , there is a wealth of experienced based, practical tips and knowledge I wish I had this book 30 years ago as it would have save me quite a few faux pas and embarrassments Technology has changed everything so dramatically with online tools, data and social networks but the interpersonal skills and techniques that Susan lays out in this book will always be useful and relevant Working a room is real work If it comes across as forced, superficial and rehearsed it can really backfire Some of her recommendations reminded me about a Guy Kawasaki sayings about ingenuine, cosmetic smiles versus the authentic crow s feet ear to ear grins If you fake it, people know Those who can socialize and engage, converse and befriend and leave a lasting positive memory on their audience will always have an edge If you can enjoy it and execute it naturally following the lessons of this book , all the better Stanford lost the Rose Bowl to Michigan State a few days later The team acquitted themselves well against a top 10 ranked squad At the post game conference Shayne Stov gave an eloquent tribute to his opponents as well as his teammates Listening to the broadcast, I sensed he had learned a thing or two from his grandmother Found this book in my apartment building s shared library Thought I d peruse for useful hints I found no insights Instead I found the author to be humblebragging throughout the book about speaking with audiences in the thousands, speaking from a pedestal to her readers who just don t have her experience To me it felt like I was being lectured to by a parent on how to grow up. To put it simply, this book is about putting yourself out there to meet strangers Amongst other topics, it covers possible sources of personal apprehension, the mindset to develop, behaviors to adopt and avoid , strategies for different scenarios and events, and lots so many anecdotes I haven t read any of Susan s other writing so maybe that s just her thing. *Free Ebook ↶ How to Work a Room: The Ultimate Guide to Making Lasting Connections--In Person and Online ✔ How to Work a Room, th Anniversary Edition by Susan RoAne has descriptive copy which is not yet available from the Publisher Incredibly basic information This advice is strictly for an individual that is absolutely clueless on how to even speak to anyone If you need this type of simplistic advice, then you have literally never been in public ever Hey Susan, the way you deliver this information is that of a child receiving lessons from a parent This book should be in the children s section.
