Nantucket Bookworms: Georgie Morley

Presence by Amy Cuddy

What are you reading?

I’m reading Presence by Amy Cuddy. The author had a TED talk about how your body and mind can control how you present an idea, and she backs it up with science which I thought was most interesting. She’ll take a topic and use studies to show how this idea of presence can help communicate your ideas.

So how does it read? What are your takeaways?

It’s a really easy read, and not just for people who are trying to present or raise money. There’s a lot of interesting pieces about hormones and body language, and how those things really do have a huge role in how you’re communicating to other people.

Every Monday, a new Nantucket Bookworm recommends a book. Follow along on Instagram @nantucketbooksor use the hashtag #NantucketBookworms.
