Virtual Book Tour Stop: Good Life Project


As part of my virtual book tour, I stopped by the Good Life Project with Jonathan Fields to talk about:

Hacking Social Interaction for Good

and my new book:

Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People

Show Notes:

As a geeky, modern-day Dale Carnegie, Vanessa Van Edwards’ innovative work has been featured on NPR, Business Week and CNN. And, her book, CAPTIVATE: The Science of Succeeding with People, is a literal roadmap to decode and, to a certain extent, influence human interaction.

We wanted to learn all about these things, the ideas, the ethics and application. But even more, we wanted to know what unfolded in Van Edward’s life that led her to become so obsessed with the study of what makes us tick. Because, it turns out, Vanessa wasn’t always the social savant in the room. In fact, in her earlier life, she pretty much ran from interaction.

So, what happened? The answer, and the stories that emerged, took us by surprise, and also revealed why this pursuit is so close to her heart.
