We need the emotional and physical input from other humans as much as we do the air we breathe and the food we eat. Deprive us of it, and we will wither and decay, just as surely as if we were deprived of food and fresh air.

But when people come together, joy and knowledge can be shared, love and hope can be found, wealth can be gathered, food can be grown, diseases cured, the planet preserved, and miracles can happen—every day, every hour, every minute.

Because the biggest miracle of all is you.


The international success of How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less and Convince Them in 90 Seconds or Less paved the way for Mingle Magic, the final book in the “Rapport by Design Trilogy.”

In Nicholas Boothman’s simple and upbeat style, Mingle Magic uncovers the hidden truths of how we are all connected and how epiphanies (those “aha” moments), purpose (meaning), projects, and flow (that feeling of effortless progress) are waiting for you to harness them for a healthier world and a wealthier you.

In seven simple steps, Mingle Magic shows how to connect with others and follow your heart to create a world where life happens FOR you, rather than TO you.

Anthropologists now agree that our ability to cooperate, form relationships, and weave together seemingly unrelated elements going on right under our noses, is the real key to our long-term survival and prosperity.
