It is outstanding! The narration is clear and keeps you interested in the subject for a long time.
The answer to which part of the body is the one that reveals the intentions of a person better.
All the book
Highly recommended. Really practical book!
Every few years, I have looked through a book about body language. This is the first one that grounded the subject in evolutionary development and human psychology. This makes it much easier to remember what each gesture might mean and how it might relate to other gestures. It give quite a few examples from the author's deep experience. In a few years I will review this book, rather than turning to another.
As several have remarked, the narration is dry and unanimated,
Avid reader from Dubai. Now slowly trying to get on the audible bandwagon.
Narration was excellent, not even close to getting bored. The details mentioned can be used universally. Joe gives cues of what we need to observe in individuals.
Hard to point out one! Was quite surprising when he mentioned about the most important place to look at to see the reaction of other individuals.
Excellent narration, never got bored
Yes. If i had a couple of off days, id sit and hear this whole book. I will listen to it again a few more times till i incorporate all points!
This is a must buy. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook.
I will listen to it again, because one listening is not enough to absorb all the tips it has on how to get and interpret cues on what people are feeling.
The power of body language, because they talk about the same subject.
I can understand him even at thrice the speed.
I loved his chapter on how hard it is to detect deception, and cautioning listeners about the dangers and abuse that can result.
Before getting it, I read reviews complaining about two issues:
a) The need to check a PDF. I found this to be a good thing. This way I don't have to imagine everything. I printed it on two pages per sheet, both sides, and got an 8-sheet booklet, very practical.
b) The narrative being dull. I listened to it at thrice the speed, and was interesting. At normal speed it may result too slow. Fortunately, the audible app has that speed setting.
I really liked learning how to interpret human behaviour. However I'd say this book left me longing for more because if mostly looked at body language from the perspective of lying or being honest (as an FBI agent would need to know most). However I'll need to read other books to find out if people like me, are listening to me, and also to interpret daily social behaviours.
Though the author may be an indespensable part of crime prevention and investigation,
the book seems a little obvious to the average joe.
Solid info. Very useful
The information applies to every potential interaction. It can be used for personal use, work, athletics, etc. I will listen to this book often.
I don't normally listen to books twice but since this one contains a lot of information I may.
I was curious to learn something new about perceiving the people around me by their body movements. This books is mostly about how to tell if someone is lying, but there is a lot of other behavior I was curious about that this book didn't cover. I felt overall the book was superficial.
More about how to perceive a larger range of behaviors.
An interesting read, I only wish I had read it before confronting my partner about his affair...!
It does need to be sold with the pdf ...having verbal descriptions of body language is not much good. I managed to find it by googling the title:)
