What if charisma could be taught?

Many people believe that charisma is a fundamental quality - you either have it or you don't. But that's simply not true. This groundbreaking, bestselling book reveals how charismatic behaviour can be learned by anyone.

In The Charisma Myth, Olivia Fox Cabane breaks charisma down into its fundamental components, revealing the secrets to how it works. Becoming more charismatic doesn't mean transforming your personality. It's about adopting a series of practices that suit you.

Charisma can be a great asset whether you're applying for a job, improving your relationships, or leading other people. The Charisma Myth shows you how to become more influential, more persuasive, and more inspiring.

Soon you'll be able to move through a room and have people say: 'Wow, who's that?'.

External Reviews

"Charisma is not a gift, it's a tool. Cabane makes a big promise with this book - and delivers" - Seth Godin.

"Until I encountered Olivia Fox Cabane, I'd naively believed charisma was an intangible, magical aura. But she is changing what was considered an art into a science... around a couple of hours can transform a reasonably personable person into someone magnetic" - Sunday Telegraph.

"Olivia Fox Cabane is one of a new breed of extreme leadership gurus who claim to have mastered the art of 'neuroshaping', or, as she puts it, 'playing chemist with your own brain' to achieve practically superhuman powers of charm and persuasion. Charisma, posits Olivia, isn't simply a genetic gift, bestowed upon the likes of Boris Johnson and Bill Clinton. "For most people," as she puts it, "it's learnt". - The Times.

"The Charisma Myth is an easy read, effectively integrating stories and research, strategies and applications, techniques and practices" - New York Journal of Books.

"Cabane has done us a big favour. She's woven solid science and engaging narrative into an instructive treatment of the role of charisma in leadership-a topic that (until now) we only poorly understood" - Robert Cialdini, author of Influence.

"We can't all be as charismatic as Alexander the Great or Madonna, but with Cabane's help, we can sure get close." - Marshall Goldsmith, author of Mojo.
