Hoping that I would be able to understand more about people based upon their microexpressions and mannerisms than just their words, I was pleased to find a book that could teach me some of these skills. I am sure the content of the book was enhanced by the illustrations that were frequently used and referenced. Listening only in audio format, although generally helpful, was limiting.
I would recommend buying the book because there are so many references to the illustrations that after awhile I was sure I could not have learned the same content using an audio book as the visual learning available through the text itself. Buy the Book not the Audio book.
The content of this book is very informative and does a good job of explaining the type of behavior someone should learn to watch both in themselves and others. I appreciated the experience and effort the author brought to the reader.
The narration had an odd cadence and was surprisingly stilted and dry. I actually had to force myself to listen to it at times.
The anecdotes were very interesting, or at least promised to be, but were frequently left vague or lacking as much detail as one might expect.
No. I think the author shared the majority of his information.
The book material was great and the reader has a fine voice. However, the Reader's delivery was not very good. It sounded like a kid in first grade trying to read out loud and hesitating in deciding which words to emphasize. With an experienced reader, this Audio Book would be an enjoyable "listen." As it is, it becomes painful to listen while the reader hesitates over many words during his reading.
The author's relating of his entering this country as a young boy and learning to read his school mates and teachers body language sets the stage for the following explanations.
The book relates excellent methods....all parts are good.
Navarro’s explanations are comprehensive and he links theoretical information with very practical examples, which make the listening very agreeable. Remember to have the PDF with many pictures near you when you listen to the book, since they take your understanding to a much more concrete level.
I will listen to it again to catch the things I missed.
I have so little time to read, so the fact this book is audible is so helpful.
I watch more closely for body language in the people I meet and in strangers I observe.
The book does an excellent job explaining how to speed-read people, so I have found myself doing this without even trying now. Very intriguing!
I am definitely going to listen to the book again. After finishing the book I am more aware of my body language and the messages I am sending non-verbally. I also have observed the behaviors as described in the book in waiting rooms etc. It was incredible to see what I had listened to come alive before me.
Writing a screen play and adding this dimension to one of my characters.
Interesting and educational
dunno - can't really remember the characters
When Her Looks tell Lies
The book covers the whole spectrum of body language.
Being able to apply the knowledge was enjoyable.
I rarely listen to a whole book all at once.
Fascinating; helpful; insightful
Hearing how revealing our legs and feet are in signaling messages.
Be more observant
This is valuable information for everyone in dealing with family members, friends, work colleagues and especially for meetings and interviews.
