Overview

People People: Who They Are. Why They Win. How To Be One.

If you’ve ever heard of someone described as “a real people person” and agreed, you no doubt immediately thought “Boy, we could use more people like that!” And you’d be right. There are truths that are universally acknowledged: a people person will smoothly, successfully engage in effective, pleasant human interactions. They are more likely to be promoted, respected, admired, complimented and appreciated than those who simply do not know how to thrive among humans. Simply put, everyone could benefit from being a people person, but many just don’t know how or don’t know where to find the answers.

Supported by interviews, case studies and sound research, People People will teach why being a people person even matters, what makes a people person, and how and where to be a people person.

Read an Excerpt

Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Albert Einstein said that if you can’t explain something to a six-yearold, then you don’t understand it yourself. Occam’s razor states that the simplest answer is usually the right one. Still, a simpleton like me worries that it’s oversimplifying to say, and it pains me to write this, that this book is about being nice.

You may have just cringed a little. I know I did.

Other very successful authors and researchers have published seminal works on “nice,” and it is not my intention either to add to or subtract (but definitely steal) from the body of work they’ve contributed to the topic. For one thing, I am neither a successful author nor a very good researcher.

I wanted to write a true self-help book—one that would help me.

Because something you must understand first and foremost is that I am not a People Person. Sure, I possess certain characteristics that are traditional to People People like affability and a firm handshake, and I’m a bit fun loving (as evidenced by the cover photo), but as you’ll discover in the following pages, there’s a lot more to it than just being a bit extroverted.
