As a comic book artist creating expressive characters for years I've been continually interested in body language. This was really interesting to learn some really concrete meaning behind the gestures people make.
This book made me more aware of people's body language in all settings.
While listening to the chapter that discussed genital framing, I noticed an individual displaying this behavior.
I also noticed how individuals either had their thumbs in or out of their pockets.
When I observed both behaviors, I just smiled. It was now so obvious.
I am a web professional who loves reading but life doesn't afford enough time if you are living at the speed of the internet. Audio books were my salvation. I love Science Fiction first and foremost, then Fantasy, and then anything else I can find that sounds interesting.
After reading some of the reviews I expected a so-so performance with excellent information. I was surprised at how often I kept going back to listen after I took a break from the monotonous voice though - that usually isn't like me. Once I leave an audio book, it is generally for good.
The information is useful and the author uses real examples when possible to explain his points.
I'm not sure what they could have done with the narrator they used but I really liked the book.
If human nature interests you, if you work with others, or if you are often taken advantage of, this listen has something to teach you.
Learn to read what people are screaming with their body around you all the time.
the main character Joe.
Did not have just one.
How you feet is the most honest part of your body.
audio is always better than print
I have been looking for another book that would compare
Who is Paul?
I've been trying to use the techniques in the book
It is hard to hold a conversation with anyone now without watching their movements and trying to understand what they are saying without speaking it.
I will never look at anyone the same way again without that little voice in my brain sizing everything up.
This audiobook is well written and well performed. One does come across references in the audio version that references a table of illustrations representing what one should look for. Descriptions used are passable enough not to need them but it causes questions as to what the audience might be missing.
Contextually useful. Would be fun to listen to a continuation of thought by how to approach different situations to provoke the nonverbal language. Would rate it higher if I could see PDF.
Only heard the audio version, but there were many references to descriptive pictures in the book and those would have helped.
