    . You would think that you wouldn't need a book to tell you this, but how often do people really give sincere appreciation?
  • Most of the time, they don't give appreciation at all or do it insincerely, resorting to flattery.
  • If you want to make compliments, they come over as sincere if you focus on something the other person has control over (great choice of books, outfit as opposed to pretty eyes).
