Publisher Description

"A must-read for anyone interested in the art of intuitively knowing what others feel." --Haemin Sunim, bestselling author of The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down and Love for Imperfect Things

Improve your nunchi. Improve your life.


The Korean sixth sense for winning friends and influencing people, nunchi (pronounced noon-chee) can help you connect with others so you can succeed in everything from business to love. The Power of Nunchi will show you how.

Have you ever wondered why your less-skilled coworker gets promoted before you, or why that one woman from your yoga class is always surrounded by adoring friends? They probably have great nunchi. The art of reading a room and understanding what others are thinking and feeling, nunchi is a form of emotional intelligence that anyone can learn--all you need are your eyes and ears. Sherlock Holmes has great nunchi. Cats have great nunchi. Steve Jobs had great nunchi. With its focus on observing others rather than asserting yourself--it's not all about you!--nunchi is a refreshing antidote to our culture of self-promotion, and a welcome reminder to look up from your cell phone.

Nunchi has been used by Koreans for more than 5,000 years. It's what catapulted their nation from one of the world's poorest to one of the richest and most technologically advanced in half a century. And it's why K-pop--an unlikely global phenomenon, performed as it is in a language spoken only in Korea--is even a thing. Not some quaint Korean custom like taking off your shoes before entering a house, nunchi is the currency of life. The Power of Nunchi will show you how the trust and connection it helps you to build can open doors for you that you never knew existed.

Disappointed

This book would be great for an unaware high school or new college student that has a precedent of no self awareness.
This book should be no-brainer for anyone over the age of 30.
Lots of anecdotes that the author tries to pass as fact. Parts of the book come across as elitist.
Immature writing style.
Points where it sounds like she is talking vs. writing.
Overly euphemistic.
Very little fact associated with her theory of Nunchi.
I asked one of my close Korean friends about Nunchi and he had never heard of it.

Still an interesting theory if you can get past the poor attempt of support evidence that the author applies to the thesis.
