Emotional Magnetism by Sandy Gerber is a self-help guidebook to help readers improve their communication in their personal and professional lives and forge better connections. A marketing expert who founded one of the fastest-growing companies in British Columbia, Gerber used to have problems co-parenting with her second husband and often struggled to communicate with her ex-husband. That is until she applied her professional strategies in her personal life. Emotional Magnetism is all about what people need. Through this book, you will discover the Four Emotional Magnets, Safety, Achievement, Value, and Experience, in great detail and learn how to utilize aspects of those Magnets in your everyday relationships. While Emotional Magnets can shape your life, they may also shift as you age and your priorities change into something other than when you were younger.

Author Sandy Gerber outlines some valuable principles to help readers increase their personal intimacy and strengthen the bonds of their relationships. Emotional Magnetism also showcases how Empathy, Authenticity, and Positive Regard work together to create positive relationships. At the end of each chapter, there are questions to engage the reader with the relevant Emotional Magnet topic discussed within the chapter. Gerber's writing style is crisp and concise, and the narrative structure feels well organized. Apart from the informative content, Gerber also provides citations to various other books and articles that deal with the emotional aspects of relationships. Overall, I found Emotional Magnetism to be an enlightening read. If you're having trouble communicating or connecting with others, I highly recommend it.

Do you find yourself wondering how to get other people to understand your ideas or join your projects? Do you want to understand their reasons for what they do? Sandy Gerber has broken down human motivations into four categories: Safety, Achievement, Value, and Experience. The easiest way to figure out your motivations is to take her quiz. It helps if you can get the people you want to work with to take it, too. That’s not necessary, as she provides clues to help you figure out another person’s motivations, and then she presents examples of how to appeal to them. Emotional Magnetism: How to Communicate to Ignite Connection in Your Relationships isn’t just for advertising or selling. It’s also useful for clear communication on almost any topic.

Reading Emotional Magnetism by Sandy Gerber is rather like having a translation key for what other people are saying. Yes, they’re using words you know, but their motivation is not always clear. With these tools, you’ll find that conversations make more sense. Taking her quiz, which is available online, I learned that achievement doesn’t motivate me at all. Now I know why all those coaches who wanted me to swim faster and win a trophy for my school sounded like they were speaking nonsense. I swim for the experience of propelling myself through the water, and possibly getting to an exciting destination. It’s fun to know more about why we do things and it’s easier to talk to somebody if we understand why they act as they do. This understanding can prevent frustration and anger. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand themselves and others better.
