Attention: Lifestyle and Business Editors

You know who they are. They breeze into a room knowing exactly what to say and how to make everyone feel calm and relaxed, while the rest of us get so nervous and awkward in a room full of strangers that we fumble every sentence and tongue-tie every name. Understanding and acting on Emotional Prediction is the surest way of creating a strong first and lasting impression, whether at a business gathering or chatting up a gorgeous stranger on the elevator; catching up with an old friend or attending a gathering by themselves, readers will learn to say the right thing - with confidence - at the right time.

Master communications expert and bestselling author Leil Lowndes says even the shy can learn how to break the ice and make strong instant connections - and become people magnets. She's taught thousands of readers "How to Talk to Anyone," and "How to Be a People Magnet," and now rolls out dozens of new methods to captivate others in How To Instantly Connect With Anyone.

"Emotional Prediction" is the secret in instantly connecting with others. Anticipating another person's feelings, really putting yourself in their shoes, is the Number One Key to instant connections. Here are a few attraction techniques from Lowndes:

- A potential employer is meeting you around the close of business. Acknowledging that you appreciate their time at the end of what may be a long work day will make an instant connection.

- Even though you have the instructions committed to memory, making an effort to take down notes anyway will make your boss feel more secure about you - another instant connection.

- Introducing "Steve, my assistant," is more emphatic, personable, and warm, than "My assistant, Steve."

Lowndes offers best-case scenarios and flat-out social nightmares where some of her tricks could have come in handy, designed to put you at ease and make everyone around you gather closer. It's more important than ever to be able to look good, sound professional, be approachable, and handle your personal and professional dealings with grace and confidence. This book gives you 96 ways to become a people magnet, easily and instantaneously.
