Back Cover

Marilyn Monroe once went shopping with a friend who was amazed that no one seemed to recognise the star. Monroe explained it was because at that moment she was off stage. To demonstrate, she ‘switched on’ her star quality. Within minutes, people began mobbing her, demanding her autograph, jostling for a closer look.


Marilyn had a legendary level of charisma that few people possess. And, whilst we may never reach these dizzying heights, we can all learn to make the most of our own charisma.


Andrew Leigh is an expert on what it takes to make a positive personal impact. In this new, extended edition of his bestselling book, you’ll discover the tools and techniques to build the essential skills that will make you really stand out from the crowd. You’ll exude confidence and magnetism, connect with people with ease, gain their attention, trust and admiration and leave a long, lasting and indelible impression.


It’s time to switch on your charisma. It’s time to shine.
