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.
The content was incredibly useful and accurate. I began noticing things with my teenager and a problematic co-worker right away - it became much easier for me to know how to approach them (or change the approach I started with) and when I needed to purse an issue further. I revisited some parts of the book two and three times because it was so useful.
This is more of an instructional book - not a book with a story line.
Okaaay...so the narrator has a seriously robotic voice. I thought it was being read by a computer at first. You should definitely listen to the sample before you buy this. That said - you can understand each and every word he says. The funniest part of the book is when the narrator...talking about criminals, FBI interviews, merging with other cultures of the world, etc...in his robotic voice...says "I give hugs freely!"
That two messages are being sent when someone is talking to you - physical and verbal. Once you can read the verbal you should take it as information, not as personal compliments or insults.
Some books are better on paper or Kindle--ones where you can easily skim over the padding of introduction and constant repetition of simple points. Did you know sometimes people lie with their faces?
Shorter or more details insights faster in the text.
I can't tell if the book drove the performance, so depends.
Annoyance and disappointment it wasn't edit better and more substance put it.
Cross referencing the PDF isn't always convenient, so perhaps it's better as a printed book, but I still enjoyed the audio
The book itself is ok. The style is very basic and quite repetitive but the content is actually interesting. So yes, if the topic interested me.
Change the narrator. His style is so bad that I just wanted to throw my ipod out the window. He completely detracts from the content of the book and makes it unbearable to keep on reading. I have had to move on to another book in between and then return to it in order to actually finish it.
Otherwise, the writing could be less repetitive and more to the point.
He drove me nuts as he cannot go three words without putting a pause in. This makes for terribly un-natural sentences and slow rhythm.
The content boiled down to its essential is actually very interesting. Its probably a lot more compelling when the author is actually lecturing but the content is still useful.
See a lecture, get the book but do not go for the audio-book
