    4. Who knew that if an acquaintance says, I love chocolate, it is a major social mistake to share and explain my preference for peanut butter Apparently, it follows from a first principle of social behavior that I should instead shift subjects until landing on authentic common ground For example, it would be much better to say, If you love chocolate do you happen to enjoy chocolate peanut butter yogurt Yes Me too I am totally with you Chocolate peanut butter yogurt is the best Captivate is full of [...]

    18. This book was refreshing, original and very helpful I appreciated the challenges located at the end of every chapter.

    19. As someone who works in the mental health field, I love exploring what makes us tick, and am no stranger to self help books Over time, though, I ve come to realize that while I m often motivated or inspired while reading these books, I m often left with lingering questions like, But what can I actually do to make X happen or How can my clients use this to implement change in their lives Captivate departs from this expectation in such a refreshing way, by offering tangible steps anyone can take t [...]

    20. I would highly recommend this book for anyone with social anxiety, autism, general social awkwardness, and anyone looking to increase their networking skills This is one of those books I assumed would be fluffy and not at all helpful It actually changed my mind fairly quickly The author is a spunky, well read speaker with an interest in behavioural science Her tips are super specific such as the best method for working a room from point A to point B or what micro expressions to look for when tal [...]

    21. Other than different stories, tips, and support research I did not found any new idea within the first four chapters, so I decided to give up with the book I don t think the author has any additional knowledge to contribute the influence field Although some content as specific tips for conversations are useful, I don t think the book is worth it spending many hours reading entirely Ps title is misleading as Science represents a very tiny section of the chapters It is most supported with stories, [...]

    22. Captivate is one of the best books I ve read on the subject of how to understand and interact with people in the last half decade.The academics who did a study on college seniors and now tell you how people tick genre has exploded recently While there are good nuggets and insights in those books They are heavy on the author s biased reasons why and not on actionable as in you can use it today techniques Vanessa s book is practical It is written from the perspective of someone trying to build a b [...]

    23. This is an informative, engaging and useful book Although I think Vanessa Van Edwards may underestimate the skill it takes to implement her behavioral hacks, I think this book has a lot of really great tips If properly implemented, I believe they could actually improve a variety of pre existing human relationships and help her readers foster new ones as well Her stories are relatable and the experiences she shares are humorous and humanizing For those that sometimes struggle with networking, mak [...]

    24. This book was fascinating Van Edwards had a great, friendly voice that pulled me in and kept me reading There were great insights in this book for how to better work with befriend people of all personality types, and I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    25. Good book minus the first 20%Thought the book was a worthwhile read once I got past the fluff in the beginning of it No, I didn t buy this book to tell me how to shake someone s have No, I didn t buy this book to tell me your posture is important The worthwhile content comes in once she starts talking beyond the first impression, and gives you tools to analyze people and think about different ways to engage with them in meaningful ways.

    26. Loved this book Very useful tips that can easily be applied to our daily life A lot of what she writes about is backed up by scientific studies that I learned about in medical school I ve recommended this book to many people already.
