Book Review: I approached reading Surf Social Waves – Shy Man’s Guide To Cutting Edge Social Secrets with some skepticism. I was pleasantly surprised by Chris Chandra’s honest, plain spoken, easy to read approach to the subject matter.
Chandra provides an overview of personal interaction and rejection, placing it in social and historical context. He mixes personal, historical, and biological/parapsychological support for the premises he outlines throughout the work.
The second Part of his work, entitled Communication, is the heart of the work. It provides some specific examples and practical techniques for improving social skills and meeting the express goals of the work: which is to be more social and to enlarge one’s social circle. He identifies useful methods and exercises for improving one’s social skills and becoming more successful in the communication game.
Two things that I found, particularly, useful in the work were the Chapter summaries, which really outlined with clarity the salient points the author was looking to address, and the “talking points” to be used and avoided in conversation in order to achieve the stated goals of the work. These are unique and elevate the work from a work of theory to a helpful guide.
I think anyone, at any social level, can find something of value in‘Surf Social Waves – Shy Man’s Guide To Cutting Edge Social Secrets’ .
