Are you wondering how you can improve your relationships with your friends and family?

Are you curious how to get or keep the job of your dreams?

Do you want to become a more popular person?

This book will show you how to do all that by raising your likeability factor—or how much other people like you.

After all, life is a series of popularity contests. The choices other people make about you determine your health, wealth, and happiness. And decades of research prove that people choose who they like. They vote for them, they buy from them, they marry them, and they spend precious time with them.

The good news is that you can arm yourself for the contest and win life’s battles for preference. How? By being likeable.

The more you are liked—or the higher your likeability factor—the happier your life will be. This book will show you how to raise that likeability factor by teaching you how to boost four critical elements of your personality:

•Friendliness: your ability to communicate liking and openness to others

•Relevance: your capacity to connect with others’ interests, wants, and needs

•Empathy: your ability to recognize, acknowledge, and experience other people’s feelings

•Realness: the integrity that stands behind your likeability and guarantees its authenticity

What happens when you improve in these areas and boost your likeability factor?

•You bring out the best in others

•You survive life’s challenges

•You have better health—and even improve others’ health, too

•You outperform in your daily roles

•You win the popularity contests that define your life

Join me for a few hours and I’ll share the results of hundreds of thousands of pages of research, numerous seminars, and hundreds of interviews with people just like you! Together let’s build our likeability factor and improve our lives!

“Conventional wisdom insists that it’s more important to be respected than liked. In this book Tim Sanders challenges that notion and reveals the awesome power of likeability. He shows us that if we want to garner support from our associates, earn the loyalty of our employees, lead our followers to a better future, be healthy, and finally achieve our life’s dreams, we must first be liked. In this important and necessary book, Sanders tells us why our likeability is the foundation of our success, and shows us how we can increase our own.” —Marcus Buckingham, author of First, Break All the Rules and The One Thing You Need to Know. . .

“I think Tim Sanders hits the nail right on the head. If you just make them love you, they’ll be happy to love you. And I learned early in life that if you want people to love you you gotta make sure you love them back.” —George Foreman
