This is a great book for those who wanted to learn how to be part of the society. Yes, the book teach you about flirting but it can be applied to improve our social skill.
Sometimes when we met stranger, we don't know how to start a conversation and do not know how to react. Susan Rabin teach us not only how we can start to speak with strangers but she also points out a few reason why we have to do so. The writer points out that we were dealing with strangers everyday without even thinking about it. It might be you're chatting up the butcher, the postmen, the baker and ignore it. So it is not because we do not know how, it's just because we are double standard..
I like it when she write " To meet interesting people, Go to interesting places". We have to agree with this, if you are a book lover go to the library, to the bookshop and try to meet the species as you. Then, go to the places of your interest to find new friends with the same interest..
"We are attracted to people in our present who remind us of people we cared for our past."
This is one of my favorite quotes. It is true that most of women were attracted to those who reflects their men in life like her brother or her father. Because the brother and the father is the quality that had been introduced through her life.
Here, I put on some more of my favorite quotes from the book:
" Be your own best friend! You know who you are..""There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.""Listen is a best treatment"
There are lots of other stuff in the book which is a great guide for me that I think will also benefit to all of you out there. It is cheap, great reading stuff and contain wisdom.. I bought the book from BookXcess, RM9.90..
