Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately wished for a do over? Maybe after a job interview, a performance, or a difficult conversation? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. Too often we approach our lives' biggest hurdles with dread, execute them with anxiety, and leave them with regret. By accessing our personal power, 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. As Harvard professor Amy Cuddy's revolutionary book reveals, 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. Amy Cuddy has reached tens of millions of viewers around the world with her TED talk about "power poses." Now she presents the science underlying these and many 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.… (mere)

Cuddy has a TED talk that is a reasonable introduction to the content in this book.

This book talks a fair bit about body language, but instead of what it tells others, the primary focus is about using body language to communicate with yourself, and uses her own academic work, along with some others, to allow yourself to behave with confidence and set yourself up to project your genuine belief in yourself of your ideas to others. The TED talk might be sufficient for you, but if you want to go a touch deeper and get basic information about the research and methodology this is a sold read. ( )

You can go ahead and just watch the Youtube video and get the gist. Many times while reading this book, I wanted to just quit especially in the middle of the book as I got bored reading through all the studies and experiments.

The lesson of the book really just is fake it until you make it. Reading the book forces you to really take the time to play with the idea rather than mindlessly checking it off your list and going back to your same old habits.

Recently I have felt unmotivated: beat-up, beat-down, and beaten. To pick myself up, I actually like to lie down (which I can't do at work), nap (which I also can't do at work), or shower (nor this). Adopting power poses sounds like a great idea.

Reading this book is a great idea, too ( )

A great writing about why we do what we do concerning our gestures, mimics, body motions and the expressions of the feelings in our faces.

This book includes a bunch of evolutionary aspects of why we are the way we are, which is a great knowledge in a world that has lost its straightforwardness. ( )

It's hard to write a review for this as I was almost finished with the book when all my questions ("Really? ALL her hypothesis were proven true?") built up and I started researching and realized...oh dear. If you haven't read up on the revolution within the social psychology field I highly recommend it as it brings up some really interesting points.
What does this have to do with the book? Unfortunately for Cuddy and her co-authors, they got caught up in a huge change of philosophy of research and since publishing their papers, almost none of the results of their power posing and hormone studies have been replicated. None.
Personally, Cuddy has been attacked, but also she hasn't admitted fully that her research in many cases is not valid. She's still giving talks and her TED talk is still up, even though what she's talking about is not true.
It's a shame since she's a genuinely good writer and I think her heart is in the right place but there's something about having humility to say, "I made a mistake. I want to do better." ( )

Presence is valuable for the practical advice it offers that anyone can use to maximize their effectiveness. The core idea is that we are most present and thus able to perform when we are grounded in our own authentic selves. Once in that mode, anyone activate it by taking a power stance, or a power pace or power mindset. I liked how the practical advice was backed by real examples and just enough research to make the reader believe without making them bored. In the course of reading, I recognized many anecdotes and techniques I've heard from others, which indicates this book's advice sticks. ( )
