For all the heavy hitters
Even if you are not socially awkward, you might learn a lot from this short self-help book. And for goodness sakes, help your nerdy friends! I am only on page 38, and unfortunately, there is a major editing problem there on page 37, just before the section on THE SPOTLIGHT ILLUSION. This error makes that portion of the book confusing. This kind of error is disappointing coming from the publisher, Bantam and the seller, B&N.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

An intelligent and useful read
This book delivered just what I was looking for. I wanted a systematic way to understand what goes into peoples' initial judgments of others. I wanted it to be substantive and based on research but not too dry or boring of a read. I definitely found that here. Additionally, Demarais and White really bring the material to life - I could easily identify many of the examples they used with situations I encounter in my life. The research they cite is fascinating and makes me feel even more inclined to try out some of the things they advise. I think this is a very well-written and intelligent book on a topic that is ususally treated in an insultingly simple-minded manner. I very highly recommend this book!Was this review helpful?
