material basic and boring, not good cart listening, refers to diagrams you can't see.
material basic and boring
I was really looking forward to this book, unfortunately my expectations were not met. There were certainly some body language myths which he dispelled, and I did learn of a couple body language keys that I didn't know.
Honestly it was just ok, I found myself spacing out then coming back and rather than rewind to see what I missed just pushed through to the end.
No one that I know of.
He stated off strong but then sounded like I felt...exactly where is the substance in this book? His voice sounded strained.
The handout was informative
You cannot depend on the brief descriptions given with the books. Rule of thumb: if by the third chapter the book has not grabbed your attention, send it back.
I've had my mind blown by books like The Sociopath Next Door and The Gift Of Fear and imagined this book would be similarly perspective-altering. It was perfectly listenable but mostly confirmed body language queues that your intuition already flags.
Perhaps if I worked in a field where such interpretation is pressing, law enforcement or high school principal ;-), I'd have been more affected.
Strangely, though the book is competently narrated there were portions that sounded robotic. Not as an adjective, but literally.
No narrative threads to make the technical information come alive. A bit abstract and difficult to follow without the PDF showing the physical behavior. Not an ideal candidate for an audiobook, in my opinion.
There are other titles in the genre you're likely to find more colorful and engaging.
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.

Did not have just one.
