Well it seems that the information in this book only leads to a 50% reliability rate by the author
More inflection and a desire of excitement concerning the content and subject.
I would and have. One key point he makes is that there are certain signals that can clue you in that something MAY be amiss. No one and nothing is a true polygraph, even a polygraph. But it definitely gives you hint on how to be tipped off, especially by tuning into non-verbal clues. An easy way I have found to practice this is to watch tv commercials with the sound off, suddenly you can really pick up on all the subconscious messaging going on!
The toughest thing about this book is the narrator's style. Each line is read tortuously slow and precise. Great if you are trying to catch everyword of a sentence, but really annoying if you are listening to a whole book! The really great thing about the Kindle Fire is that I could just increase the reading speed. I set it at 150% and then it was much better. If I had thought to do that right away I would have been much better off. So before you elect not to buy based on this comment, allow me to reiterate that just speeding up the replay made it fine to listen to. In fact, the narrators clear and precise style allowed it to be sped up without any loss of clarity.
I enjoyed the book. Picked up a few hints. But overall was more distracted by the narrators strained attempts to speak slowing and to overly enunciate.
I felt as though the narrator thought he was speaking to a half-deaf child.
TV show, yes... I have... it was called Lie To Me.
I can't imagine I would have a desire to read/listed to another book by this author, which is not to say that this one was not interesting or well written.
This narrator was not my favorite. His monotone made it very hard to maintain my focus.
I find myself more aware of people's limbic responses.
This was not my fave book- not my fave author. He makes a few good points but I was expecting grandeur and new information, not stuff that you can learn from watching jury trials on tv. My feet are pointed to the door as I am walking away and not looking back at this novel any more.
This is a great book about body language. I have read several, but this one is the most believable and accurate. The information is balanced, delivered in a logical sequence and the reading is done well too. This one is well worth your time to listen too. I plan to listen to it again.
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.
