Do you have clout? Can you walk into a room and own it? CNN anchor and reporter, Max Foster, has had unique and privileged access to many of the world's most prominent people and he has identified what he thinks they have in common. In this quick read, you will discover: * How Donald Trump, Queen Elizabeth II, Steve Jobs and others acquired their clout. * Fascinating behind-the-scenes insights into how they maximise that clout. * And the 6 ingredients you need to develop your own clout. Excerpts: On Donald Trump: 'I pretended not to watch but could see his red `Make America Great Again' cap bobbing around in the corner of my eye. Then, I felt it coming towards me and before I knew it, he was leaning over my armchair. "I hear you've been waiting to speak to me." On The Queen: 'After the picture was taken, President Obama escorted her down the steps as if he were a member of her staff and President Putin of Russia allowed them to go ahead.' On Meghan Markle: 'It was a clear statement of intent from Markle that she wasn't going to stop having opinions just because she was joining the most famous family in the world.' On Steve Jobs: 'I usually have to warm my guests up before an interview but Jobs was straight in there, eyes locked on mine. It wasn't intimidating - more of a charm offensive and I have to say it worked.' On people with clout 'I assumed people with clout are driven by hope. They know what they want and strive towards it. Now I think it's as much about their fear.'

Recensioner i media

Review by Iain Dale, Publisher (Biteback Books), Presenter (LBC) and commentator: Clout is a strange word. It's almost slang for a combination of `power' and `influence'. If someone has to tell you they have clout, they probably don't. It's like charisma. You know it when you see it. You've either got it, or you haven't. It's difficult to learn how to acquire it. At least, that's what I thought until I read the last chapter of this book. This short but perfectly formed book by CNN International news anchor, and presenter of CNNTalk, Max Foster, is a fascinating look into the phenomenon of what he terms `cloutology'. He looks at six case studies - all people he's interviewed or observed at close quarters and then uses the lessons drawn to advise the reader on their own ability to acquire `clout'. Max's subjects are quite a diverse group - Steve Jobs, Tracey Emin, Stormzy, Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor, Donald Trump and HM The Queen. He's interviewed them all, apart from The Queen, who clearly doesn't do interviews, but as CNNRoyal Correspondent Max has observed her up close for many years. He uses his interviews to back up his thesis about how each of these people uses their `clout'. In some ways this could be a seen as a `self-help' book for those who are unsure about their own sense of `clout'. Indeed, the last chapter is all about self-analysis, using the six different criteria Max has applied to his six subjects. He thinks they all have 6 `C's in common: Cause; Credibility; Character; Conversation; Connection; Cachet. Max writes: "I've seen how people with clout aren't held back by convention", and he's right. I think of all the people I know who I would say exude `clout' and they've all been successful because at some point in their careers or lives they've dared to be different or they've defied convention. Think Adele. Think J K Rowling. Think Nigel Farage. Think Andrew Neil. Think Piers Morgan. Think Malcolm Turnbull. Think Pierluigi Collina. I could go on. Some of these people you will love and respect. Others you will loathe. But in their own particular fields, no one could deny they have clout. This is one of those zeitgeisty books that could do rather well. It's very short, at only 90 pages, but that makes it very digestible. Depending on the reaction to it, I wonder if Max might expand it into something bigger that one of the big publishers might take on. Perhaps I should become his literary agent.
