  • "Let Me Hear Your Body Talk"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    One of the first books I listened to on Audible was Joe Mavarro and Marvin Karlins' "What Every Body is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People" (2012). It was so long ago that I hadn't started writing reviews, but that was fortunate with this book. I've been using some of the techniques described in the book for 18 months, and they work. I wouldn't have known that when I finished the book.

    I am a civil trial attorney, and I long relied on gut feeling and intuition when I picked a jury. In other words, just dumb look. This book gave me the ability to know, with some basis, whether a jury liked my client or the opposition, and whether I was effectively advocating my client's defense. Once, in a memory seared sharp, I completely torqued a juror off, which I realized by her flared nostrils and lips pursed together to nonexistence. I was able to dig out of that situation.

    This isn't the key to picking a perfect jury, but it helps. It's like knowing a secret code.

    I occasionally listen to the book to refresh my techniques. The book teaches how to speed read people, but learning the techniques takes a lot of time, patience, practice and feedback - when you can get it.

    I'm giving the book an overall 4 because it is so useful, but it's a 3 on the story. Despite the exciting topic, it's pretty dry and academic. The narration is a three, too. It sounds more like a business seminar than a narration.

    I want to mention that "What Every Body is Saying" and Pamela Meyer's "Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception" (2011) really builds on Navarro's techniques. Listen to them consecutively, and it's like a college psychology course.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Story

    Me: "Well, Dr. Goulston, I'm a lawyer. I end up in some pretty nasty fights on a fairly regular basis. I wanted to find out if there was anything I could do to defuse the argument without running to a judge for a court order."

    Dr. Goulston: "And the book helped you how?"

    Me: "I found out that people who are really angry may not be thinking at all. It's called 'amygdala hijack,' primitive brain has taken over, and the person is in "fight or flight" mode. I also found out when someone is attacking and reacting, turning beet red and blustery, they are thinking with a higher emotional brain. And I learned that to get someone to look logically at a situation, you need to have them thinking with their highest, rational brain."

    I listened to "Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone" (2009) by Mark Goulston, MD, twice - because I wanted to know how to calm a fight over legal and evidentiary issues, and help my teenagers work to 'fix the problem, not the blame.' Long ago, I discovered saying, "Just calm down" in either situation had about the same effect as telling someone to 'f*** off'. I didn't know why, but I do now and I know what to say - and do - next time. I won't yell back. I won't point fingers. I will use the techniques Goulston recommends to decelerate the ire. That includes asking 'fill in the blank' questions - like the title to this review.

    I have some valuable techniques that I've started using - although I'm not the target reader/listener. "Just Listen" is directed towards supervisors, managers and execs; and salespeople. A good third of the book discussed handling situations I don't find myself in. I expect someone in those jobs will find this book even more helpful than I did.

Gerardo's greatest hits:
  • Accidental Genius: Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight and Content

    "A simple idea that can help you write more"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is one of those books that would work better as a two-page magazine article. The entire book is about a single idea: if you need to write something and don't know where to start, just start writing whatever comes to mind, there will be time for filtering, editing and fine tuning later.

    The rest o f the book is an elaboration on this idea. I am not a professional, full-time writer so take my comment with that in mind.

    There are other books about writing that I found to be much, much richer

  • Compelling People: The Hidden Qualities That Make Us Influential

    "Long book on one simple concept"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The entire book is written around the idea that people are defined by their strength and warmth and that compelling people find the right balance between the two based on the context of the situation.

    So, yes, an interesting concept - but not worth a couple hours. I skipped the second half for the most part.

  • The Millionaire Messenger: Make a Difference and a Fortune Sharing Your Advice

    "Enjoyable, Powerful and useful"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I have read probably ten books on the subject and this is by far the best.

    I was skeptical because Brendan sounded like a young sales guy with too much energy in one of his videos online. It reminds me of the Sham Wow guy.

    However, his story is real, he is not as young as he looks, he has a solid background (5 years at Accenture) and a powerful personal story. His energy is contagious. The book makes you feel he really wants to help

    Yes, Brendan does a little bit of selling for this other products, and you may say this book is only to generate prospects for his online seminars, but I think he is allowed to do that., After all, it is a good example of the process you need to follow if you want to be a millionaire messenger selling your expertise.

    The audio book is enjoyable, thoughtful and practical. I recommend it.

    I'm not even quite sure how I picked this book to spend my credit on but I'm so glad it turned out to be an awesome find! It gives you the medical reasons why our body language can say more than the words that we say -plus examples that happened through out his career while he was an FBI agent . While listening to this book I became a people watcher and have observed some of the examples he talks about in the book so now I can't help feeling like this book has given me tools to decode what people are saying without saying it. Delivers its promise! Great use of credit.

Equally important, he offers practical advice - to Aspergians, their parents, and educators - on how Asperians can improve the weak communication and social skills that keep them from taking full advantage of, or even recognizing, their often remarkable gifts.
