The must-read summary of Guy Kawasaki's book: "Enchantment: The Key to Attracting People to Your Company".
This complete summary of the ideas from Guy Kawasaki's book "Enchantment" shows that even if you have an insanely great mousetrap, the world will not beat a path to your door. Everyone's busy doing their own thing. In practice, the greater your mousetrap is, the harder it will be to get people to embrace it because it will be so different to what they're used to. Instead of sitting back and hoping you'll be discovered, you have to get busy enchanting people with what you have. Enchantment is the art and process of turning cynics into believers and then enlisting them in a crusade to tell the world. This summary highlights a few steps in bringing about enchantment and the nine things that you can do to get some enchantment working in your favor.

To learn more, read "Enchantment" and find out why you should go forth and enchant.
Enchantment, as defined by bestselling business guru Guy Kawasaki, is not about manipulating people. It transforms situations and relationships. It converts hostility into civility and civility into affinity. It changes skeptics and cynics into believers and the undecided into the loyal.
Enchantment can happen during a retail transaction, a high-level corporate negotiation, or a Facebook update. And when done right, it’s more powerful than traditional persuasion, influence, or marketing techniques.
Kawasaki argues that in business and personal interactions, your goal is not merely to get what you want but to bring about a voluntary, enduring, and delightful change in other people. By enlisting their own goals and desires, by being likable and trustworthy, and by framing a cause that others can embrace, you can change hearts, minds, and actions.
