This audiobook will show listeners how to schmooze their boss, co-workers, and customers; endear themselves using "chatch" and "schmick; " schmooze for love; and make their first impression a positive, lasting one.

Publishers Description
Schmoozing is the Golden Rule at full throttle. It's a thrill and an art form that encourages people to say, "you've made my day" instead of demanding "make my day." A schmoozer is someone who talks to people as if they really matter--and they do "Read with considerable humor and feeling by Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller fame. Highly recommended."

Surprised  Jan 13, 2008
[ASIN:1570711291 The Golden Rule of Schmoozing]]

I was surprised to find this book was the WAY OF LIFE! This is a must read for anybody who wants to better their life. Aye Jaye is remarkable. I purchased 6 books, for my kids and grandkids. I want my family to have a BETTER LIFE.
Have It Your Way  May 9, 2007
Schmooze your way into better service and discounts with these tips. There won't be anything you won't be able to talk your way into.
Good schmoozing tips....  Mar 9, 2007
The book is funny and it provides good schmoozing tips for you to try. I agree and would actually try 70% of the authors ideas/tips...and I think you do get better service, freebies, discounts when you do some of these things. The rest of his tips were too bold and out there for me to even attempt. Oh and towards the end of the book, he goes off and starts talking about personal issues and what he did to get through them....I was like 'Yadi yadi...lets move on' and skipped those pages. Overall the book was entertaining and would probably pass it along to friends.
ummmm  Jan 11, 2007
Bought the audio version on Penn's recommendation from his web site.

It is pretty weak. Some good points but not worth it to me. You get some schmoozing stuff then it quickly rambles off into personal relationships etc. Fine but not what I bought it for.
Schmooze Me?  May 26, 2005
I loved The Golden Rule of Schmoozing, The Authentic Practice of Treating Others Well, by comedian and author Aye Jaye. In fact, I enjoyed the book so much that after borrowing it from my local library, I went out and purchased it. This is unusual for me, as I rarely even keep books I have read through.

The Golden Rule of Schmoozing reminds me of Dale Carnegie on steroids. It's an entertaining, easy-read book filled with examples of how to lay on schmooze anytime, anywhere. I'd have to say that the purpose of schmoozing is to just enhance the quality of life; to make The Road more bearable, if not enjoyable. Schmoozing is all about respect, being nice and taking the extra step in relationships.

I liked the way Aye Jaye defines schmoozing in such a positive light: "Schmoozing is The Golden Rule at full throttle." "It's a skill and an art form that encourages people to say, "You've made my day..." "A schmoozer is someone who talks to people as if they really mattered..." To my mind, this book reminds us that what goes around, eventually comes around. Well-placed schmooze can result in good Karma and good fortune, albeit random, but I'd take random over nothing!

One thing that threw me was the Foreword written by Penn and Teller. Not being a fan, I was glad that it was short. It didn't even hint at the quality of content to come.

The extensive Table of Contents illustrates the far-ranging arenas for schmooze.

I particularly enjoyed Aye Jaye's examples, rendered from his own life experience and those of friends and acquaintances, which drive home the point of each chapter. It was also fun to learn of the unintended (and sometimes intended) reciprocating schmooze by schmooze-recipients.

I've learned that even shy and introverted people can schmooze. This book enables the charm and charisma in otherwise inhibited people, by explaining how natural it is and illustrating the positive effects on both the schmoozer and "schmoozee". If more people were aware of the schmooze-effect it would lead to happier and more satisfying relationships across the board.

This book is recommended for all.
