You know the feeling. You meet someone new—at a party or at work—and you just hit it off. There is an instant sense of camaraderie.

In a word, you “click.”

From the bestselling authors of SwayClick is a fascinating psychological investigation of the forces behind what makes us click with certain people, or become fully immersed in whatever activity or situation we’re involved in.

From two co-workers who fall head over heels for each other while out to dinner and are married a month later (and fifteen years later remain just as in love), to a team of scientists who changed the world with the magic of their invention, these kinds of peak experiences, when our senses are completely focused on the moment, are something that individuals—and companies—strive to achieve. After all, when you’re in the “zone,” you’re happier and more productive. Why is it that we click in certain situations and with certain people, but not with others? Can this kind of magical connection be consciously encouraged? Is there a way to create such peak experiences, whether on a date or in your job?

According to Ori and Rom Brafman, there is.

In a powerful, story-driven narrative that weaves together cutting-edge research in psychology and sociology, the Brafmans explore what it means to “click”: the common factors present when our brain and senses are fully engaged. They identify five “accelerators” that increase the likelihood of these kinds of magic connections in our work and relationships.

From actors vying for a role on a popular television series to police officers negotiating with hostage takers, we learn how one can foster an environment where we can click with another person and shape our thinking, behavior, and emotions.

A fascinating journey into how we engage with the world around us, Click will transform our thinking about those moments when we are in the zone and everything seems to fall into place.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Psychology and sociology click into place for an engaging, eye-opening read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Shapiro ‘clicks’ with this work. His voice is low, relaxed, and comfortable, with a hint of gravel at the lower end, and he unravels the scientific data in a way that is accessible and engaging. Shapiro’s easy, friendly manner complements the book’s tone, and he pauses at just the right moments to allow us to reflect on what he’s said.”

    " Much better than expected. Thought it would be piggybacking on the success of one-syllable pseudo-social science books (e.g. Blink, Drive). The numerous details and insights made up for my prejudging. "

    " This book by the brothers Brafman digs deep into that mysterious experience of instant connection. I appreciated how they grounded their discoveries in practical recommendations; they don't just explain the phenomenon; they tell us how we can use it to our advantage in our personal and professional lives. While a few more concrete examples of people who have proactively implemented their suggestions would have helped, the book is still really interesting and surprisingly practical. "

    " Had that exact moment the first time Charles opened his mouth. I couldn't even see his face. It was the way he chose the words...or the way he said them...something about the wavelength they travelled...I dunno...I just thought "Who IS that?" "
