You can win life’s popularity contests.

The choices other people make about you determine your health, wealth, and happiness. And decades of research prove that people choose who they like. They vote for them, buy from them, marry them, and spend precious time with them. The good news is that you can arm yourself for the contest and win life’s battles for preference. How? By raising your likeability factor.

The more you are liked, the happier your life will be. In The Likeability Factor, business guru Tim Sanders shows how to build your likeability factor by teaching you how to enhance four critical elements of your personality:

  • Friendliness: your ability to communicate liking and openness to others
  • Relevance: your capacity to connect with others’ interests, wants, and needs
  • Empathy: your ability to recognize, acknowledge, and experience other people’s feelings
  • Realness: the integrity that stands behind your likeability and guarantees its authenticity

When you improve these areas and boost your likeability factor, you bring out the best in others, handle life’s challenges with grace, enjoy better health, and excel in your daily roles. You can win the close calls and tight competitions that define and determine success and happiness at work and in life—The Likeability Factor can show you how!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E | 2/5/2014

    " liked it! a lot of times these books can be ridiculous but I thought it was modern and well written and also emphasizes the larger picture of what CAN and DOES happen if you improve your likeability efforts (something i am working on....ok?) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 1/23/2014

    " It had some good things in it, but most everything talked about has already been talked about. So i guess i liked it, just wasn't amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/20/2014

    " I know, like, DUH, we should all be likeable. But if you're looking for a business case for likeability, it's in here. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josalyn | 1/16/2014

    " Half of this book could be skipped and the next half can be skimmed. There were some good points and it made you think about your behavior a little bit, but overall the writing wasn't fantastic. Very repetitive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody Phillips | 1/5/2014

    " Favorite quotation:"Likeable people surround themselves with a shield and a sword- a positive viewpoint of themselves and a huge collection of friends." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Caves | 1/4/2014

    " Terrific read. Gave practical insights to interacting successfully with others "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan Mckenzie | 1/3/2014

    " Um...skip the first half and go to section II - increasing your likeability factor. Then skim that for the steps in italics, reading sections as you want more information. Much of it is common sense unless you are a Vulcan. ;) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyddie | 12/21/2013

    " What I got from this book: I am unlikeable and that fact can't be changed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ron Christiansen | 3/4/2013

    " unfortunate book club pick by someone other than me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francis | 2/3/2013

    " Sanders hit a home run on this one. Good for anyone who deals with people on a daily basis. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 12/21/2012

    " There was more activity involved in this book than I realized, and since I didn't have time to do it, I probably didn't get as much out of it than I should. It's a great concept though and a quick and easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emma | 9/26/2011

    " Read this while waiting for Love the killer app to come back to the Uni Library... Some good points but a little basic "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary | 8/21/2011

    " Tim is one of my top writers that I like to read, however, with this book I was left a little less interested in the subject at the end than I was at the begining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 6/29/2011

    " Like many management process improvement, career building books this is an easy to read, easily understandable perspective of how to increase success in the workplace. Works with encouragement/recognition to change office culture. "
