"The most magical word you can use, short of a person's name, is 'you.' The great Arthur Godfrey practiced this invariably. 'How are you?' he said, is all- important." —Dick Cavett, Talk Show (2010)

And of course Eugene Burger has written extensively about the magical power of using someone's name.

This is a nice addendum to that.
