Description of How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less! (English) (Paperback) by Nicholas Boothman

Whether selling, managing, negotiating, planning, collaborating, pitching, instructing-or on your knees with a marriage proposal-the secret of success is based on connecting with other people. Now that connection is infinitely easier to make through Nicholas Boothman's program of rapport by design.

How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less is the work of a master of Neuro-Linguistic Programming whose career is teaching corporations and groups the secrets of successful face-to-face communication. Aimed at establishing rapport-that stage between meeting and communicating-How to Make People Like You focuses on the concept of synchrony. It shows how to synchronize attitude, synchronize body language and synchronize voice tone so that you instantly and imperceptibly become someone the other person likes. Reinforcing these easy-to-learn skills is knowing how to read the other person's sensory preferences-most of us are visual, some are kinesthetic and a minority are auditory. So when you say 'I see what you mean' to a visual person, you're really speaking his language. Along the way the book covers attitude, nervousness, words that open a conversation and words that shut it down, compliments, eye cues, the magic of opposites attracting and more. It's how to make the best of the most important 90 seconds in any relationship, business or personal.

About the Author

Nicholas Boothman, bestselling author of 'How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less', is a licensed Master Practitioner of Neuro-Lingusitic Programming. He is a consultant to individuals, groups and corporations who want to learn communication skills needed to connect with others.

Book Excerpts

Entrepreneurship is about living life on your own terms. Time is short. Even with the right ideas, a tireless work ethic, the gift of the gab, a solid network, the ability to hire well, family support and funding - even with all those variables working in your favor - things can go sideways in the blink of an eye. There are no guarantees in business or life.

Entrepreneurs face extraordinary challenges every day. Maybe your product or service didn't find the massive market you thought was out there. Maybe you ran out of money, didn't get the next round of investment or made one big bet and lost it all. Maybe the founders split or growth just dried up. In business, it seems, a whole lot more can go wrong than right. Success is never an accident and seldom occurs overnight, far from what the media sometimes writes when touting the next killer app or must-have product.

So what separates industry leaders from obituaries? Staying the course is a crucial, unsung, often thankless task that falls to the person in charge and the core team.

My experience tells me that value creation often comes from just lining up with everyone else at the start line.

Too often these days, I hear people say 'I need to do my research' and 'I am doing my homework' as dilatory tactics to put their dreams on hold. Research and homework are vital, but deep knowledge comes from doing, from getting your hands dirty and from asking the questions others are afraid or embarrassed to ask. Setting your laser sights on the goal and getting to work doesn,t allow insecurities or manufactured fears to get in the way of your dream. You can't let that happen. You won't let that happen.

Dreaming with your eyes open means being alert to challenges but refusing to let them stop you.

Description of Nehru and Bose : Parallel Lives (English)(Hardcover) by Rudrangshu Mukherjee
Nobody has done more harm to me than Jawaharlal Nehru,' wrote Subhas Chandra Bose in 1939.

Had relations between the two great nationalist leaders soured to the extent that Bose had begun to view Nehru as his enemy? But then, why did he name one of the regiments of the Indian National Army after Jawaharlal? And what prompted Nehru to weep when he heard of Bose's untimely death in 1945, and to recount soon after, 'I used to treat him as my younger brother'?

Rudrangshu Mukherjee's fascinating book tracks the growth of these two towering figures against the backdrop of the independence movement, delicately tracing the contours of a friendship that did not quite blossom as political ideologies diverged, and delineates the shadow that fell between them-for, Gandhi saw Nehru as his chosen heir and Bose as a prodigal son.

Nehru and Bose: Parallel Lives brings to light the riveting story of two contrasting personalities who would go on to define modern India.

Description of What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions (English)(Paperback) by Randall Munroe

From the creator of the wildly popular xkcd.com, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask.

Millions visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe's iconic webcomic. Fans ask him a lot of strange questions: How fast can you hit a speed bump, driving, and live? When (if ever) did the sun go down on the British Empire? When will Facebook contain more profiles of dead people than living? How many humans would a T Rex rampaging through New York need to eat a day?

In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations and consults nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, complemented by comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion.
