for Amy Cuddy’s PRESENCE

“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.”
New York Times Book Review (front page)

“A must-read for anyone looking to achieve their personal best.”
People (Book of the Week)

The National Post (Canada)

This book is a game-changer!”

“It’s no mystery why Amy Cuddy is one of the most beloved TED speakers of all time.

—John Neffinger and Matthew Kohut, coauthors of Compelling People

“Millions of people have already been empowered by Amy Cuddy’s groundbreaking TED talk on ‘power posing’ — but that was just the tip of the iceberg! In PRESENCE, Cuddy reveals a much bigger and deeper science: a whole new way of understanding the body-mind connection, and how our physical habits affect our thoughts, feelings and choices. Reading this book will forever change how you carry yourself, and in doing so, it will make you braver, bolder, and better able to show up for all of your life’s greatest opportunities.”
—Jane McGonigal, author of Reality Is Broken and SuperBetter

“A captivating, charming read on harnessing confidence and poise. Demystifying a century of science, Amy Cuddy shows how we can achieve greater success and sincerity by changing the way we carry ourselves.”
—Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take

“In one exquisitely written book, Amy Cuddy illuminates for us the latest research of how the body and mind, in surprising yet elegant ways, affect who we are and how we are perceived. This generously cited book goes far beyond Amy Cuddy’s TED talk. Delving deeply and widely into the research that confirms that we can transform ourselves, that we can change how we are perceived, that we can master the art and science of influence. But first we have to understand how the body affects the mind and the mind working with the body changes us, changes perceptions, and changes the world around us. And no one does this better than Amy Cuddy.”
—Joe Navarro, former FBI counterintelligence officer and author of New York Times bestseller What Every BODY Is Saying

“There is one thing that separates those who do from those who don’t: power. Amy Cuddy helps us understand what it means to build our personal power, keep it strong when it falters and help us steer clear of arrogance. This book is a must read for every doer out there.”
—Simon Sinek, optimist and author of the New York Times bestseller Leaders Eat Last and Start with Why

“With advice that is both practical and profound, Amy Cuddy shows how to summon your true and best self when doing so matters most. Emotions are contagious. If you personify poise and optimism yourself, you enhance the odds that they will respond in kind.”
—Michael Wheeler, Harvard Business School, author of The Art of Negotiation
