First Impression Express: Know How to Charm and Connect with People Upon Meeting Them, and Create a Lasting Impression (KnowIt Express) by Alice Young is an encouraging book and a useful guide to all those readers who want to know how to charm and connect with people, and form a good and lasting impression. The book taps into the senses of sight, sound, smell, and touch and how to stimulate them when we come face to face with a person. All the steps and suggestions help to boost one’s confidence level and help one to become a good conversationalist and leave a memorable impression.

The first impression is always the best impression, as we all know, and the book tells you how to attract the right person’s attention, the one with whom you are trying to get acquainted, how to make a powerful impact when you walk into a room, how to handle challenges, and how to take the conversation to the next level after the first meeting. The Matador Approach shows how to gain attention and be rewarded with visibility. The exercises are helpful in becoming more observant and making a positive impression when you meet a person. The topics flow from one to the next smoothly and methodically, making it easy for readers to apply the techniques in their lives. The author’s explanations and the manner in which the topic has been handled are neat and easy for everyone to understand, practice, and connect with people. Reading this book will definitely give readers more power, help them find their comfort zone, and then make an impression.


I was looking for a great little primer on how to approach making a good first impression, and First Impression Express really did what I needed it to do. I’m not particularly socially adept, and this book gave me some specific, concrete advice on how to naturally and gracefully come off as a person who people want to know. I especially appreciated the chapter on the “Square Dance” of social interaction. It takes you through the steps to create a good impression in a way that feels genuine, positive, and, most importantly, completely doable. This is a great guide to review before your next party, date, or work function so that the information is fresh in your mind. Highly recommended!

Every thought about what first impression you are leaving with others when you meet them for the first time? This booklet addresses those concerns and gives practical advice on how not to just be another forgotten face. The key, the author argues, is making yourself stand out somehow – make yourself memorable by being incredibly nice to other people so they trust you. One does this by tapping into all of the senses of others. Smell, touch, sound, sight, and intuition are all senses that others have when they meet you. If you can leave a great memorable impression in each of these areas you have scored big and they won’t soon forget they feeling they have by being around you.

The greatest way to leave a good impression is to be a good conversationalist. Chapter 3 is full of sample statements to use during a conversation so you can compliment the other party and relate to them. The author argues that you can read the body cues and and react the right way to keep the conversation flowing smoothly down the course you steer it.

This booklet feels like the cheat sheet of how to get people to like you. Having read “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Carnegie this feels like the spy’s version of how to woo and seduce people by using their insecurities against them. If that is what you are looking for, you will find it here. This is the Hitch guide to making people be attracted to you.
