Schmooze by Cody Lowry is a non-fiction book about how to excel in public relations, thereby becoming a good communicator. The author mentions many of his life stories to teach the reader how to be a better businessperson and a happier individual. The writer’s tone is casual, informational, didactic, and highly humorous, which creates a light-hearted atmosphere in the text.

The writer begins by defining the word schmooze, which is a Yiddish word that means to chat in a persuasive and friendly way so as to gain favors in business or connections. The author extends this definition by saying that schmooze for him has been a lifestyle of kindness, creativity, and thinking outside the box. The author discusses his early childhood days when he grew up in a poor home with a careless father. He was selling newspapers from a young age, which taught him how to schmooze from so young. He would use his humor and his cuteness to sell newspapers and make some pocket money. As a child, he met a man named Hugh, who was a tax accountant, and he was a father figure for him. High taught the author the importance of smiling in business and in everyday life.

This book had several advantages, which elevated its status. More specifically, I liked the fact that the author shared many personal experiences in the text, thereby adding originality and authenticity to his book. Moreover, I liked the emotion and excitement added to the book through the use of dialogue and linguistic devices. Additionally, this book was edited excellently because I only found two grammatical mistakes in the whole book. Besides this, I enjoyed the artistic sketches added to the book, which gave it some liveliness and beauty. What I liked most about this book was the humor the writer added to his book, making the reader laugh and become engaged in the text. I disliked nothing in this book, as it contained only positive characteristics.

This book is best suited for adult readers who are interested in learning about how to be better communicators and more persuasive while doing business. Adult readers will prefer this book, as there is some profanity in the text. Catholic readers will enjoy this book more, as the author mentions various Catholic beliefs in his book.

To conclude, I rate this book with 4 out of 4 stars. I give it a perfect score because of its professional editing, its humor, its excitement, and its illustrations.
