    This is the best course I have ever taken on anything, anywhere, ever. As an adult with Asperger’s, I have been studying social skills and nonverbal communication for a long time. All the books I’ve read and other courses like these I’ve watched prior to this one, didn’t even teach me half of what Vanessa has taught me in this course. Master Your People Skills has provided me with literally everything I have ever wanted to learn from inner confidence, charisma, making conversation, making a great first impression, being memorable, etc. Vanessa is such a charismatic, passionate, and knowledgable mentor, who has a real gift of taking her many years of research and hard work, and teaching it in a way that is easy and fun to learn. This course is the real deal, you will be a master after you are finished with it, and I would recommend it to anyone.

    I have just finished day 13 and so far the course has been amazing every single day. Vanessa is a great teacher and I love how her work is down-to-earth, practical, very applicable and rooted in scientific research. It's not the usual "ra ra ra, I can turn you into a master people schmoozer-type courses" found elsewhere. Anyone that wants to improve themselves and have better relationships in all aspects of their lives, both professional and personal, should get this course. There is so much quality material in this course, I look forward to going over the videos and the workbook more than once in order to improve my own people skills. The course is worth every penny and much more! Thank you Vanessa!

    Speaker really knows and conveys well the subject manner, and the pdfs provided with course, are stellar. The editing could use some pruning (in length), especially in the beginning of each segment. My issue, and it's probably a personal issue, as I don't read any other reviews spotlighting the following- the amount of "I love it!" she verbally responds with, in regards to how she chooses to acknowledge audience members statements. Sometimes as many as 3 "I love it" within a 20 second interval. After the 500th "I love it!", I was ready for a refund. ~In closing, as an audial learner, I'd like to make my own response (in my own mind) to the audience members statements. Ms Edwards saying "I love it!", over and over, interrupts my train of thought (relationship to what the audience may have just said). Like I said, it's probably just me, but it is ever present and annoying to me personally, in listening to this otherwise stellar course. (, I may note, I've enjoyed her other classes here on C.L. and she uses a pleasant amount of , "I love it", in the other classes). Again otherwise valuable material, especially with a little more pruning with the editing, in my humble opinion.
