I am not pressing someone's pulse when shaking a hand. This book is just too simplistic. The author recommends a conversation starter by analyzing someone's business card and keep staring at it throughout conversation. Not sure how really effective this is, I would find it a bit weird or an obvious networking trick. This is followed by long passage on social hugs. I have expected this to be on communication, not lesson on social greetings. For maintaining eye contact, I am not going to analyze how far spaced the other person's eyes are or counting how many times they have blinked, I would come across as odd, not paying attention what they are saying. Another suggestion is to hover around until a person you want to meet sits down and then sprint to the next seat "where you deposit your bottom can change your bottom line" - cheesy. Far too simplistic.

Leil Lowndes is very good writer. Instead of using his words that someone needs a dictionary for to understand the book, she puts her own experiences in it. Shetells the reader, that she gets into the same experiences as us.

I learned a lot from this book.
