Description
Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge—maybe after a job interview, a performance, or a difficult conversation—and immediately wished for a do-over? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. And yet, by accessing our personal power, Amy Cuddy promises, we can achieve "presence," the state in which we stop worrying about the impression we're making on others and instead adjust the impression we've been making on ourselves. A professor and researcher at Harvard Business School who studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people, Cuddy has been named one of 50 Women Who Are Changing the World by Business Insider, and her 2012 TED Talk about "power poses" is the second most-viewed talk in the conference's history. As she explains here, we don't need to embark on a grand spiritual quest or complete an inner transformation to harness the power of presence. Instead, we need to nudge ourselves, moment by moment, by tweaking our body language, behavior, and mind-set in our day-to-day lives. Cuddy describes the fascinating science underlying these and other body-mind effects, and teaches us how to use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments, perform at our best, and connect with and empower others to do the same.

"Cuddy brings an abundance of humility and charm to the page. Her presence itself—her openhearted desire to help the insecure and the uneasy in this age of anxiety—shines through. Presence feels at once concrete and inspiring, simple but ambitious—above all, truly powerful."—NYTBR (front page review)
