Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People | Vanessa Van Edwards

Dear teachers and students. Today, the Inspire Library, in partnership with the Book Companion Club, would like to introduce Vanessa Van Edwards’s book “Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People” to teachers and students.

"Instead of attempting to alter others, learn to decipher their facial expressions and improve communication in order to appropriately judge their conduct. Every story will become a lot easier when you understand the laws of human behavior"

Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People will guide you through 14 strategies for analyzing human behavior. They're easy-to-use, effective tools for advancing your profession, improving relationships, and increasing wealth. Our inside is just as varied – if not more so – than our outside appearance. Human behavior is governed by implicit rules. It is our responsibility to discover them.

You can simply reframe your behavior, communication, and relationships if you understand what makes people react. Solving arithmetic problems without knowing how to form an equation is similar to trying to understand people without a pattern. Both are exceedingly challenging, needing us to overcome numerous obstacles in order to arrive at our destination. This book will show you how people "operate" and how to communicate scientifically in ways you never learned at school.

Dear teachers and students, please stay tuned and read!
