    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    NOT natural or convincing

    Women are always giving off signals, and men are always missing them. In Undercover Sex Signals, bestselling author and communications expert Leil Lowndes shows how to score on every pass, with everything from the best activity for a first date to how a guy should dress to increase his odds for sealing the deal.

    Would you try another book from Leil Lowndes and/or Leil Lowndes?

    NEVER


    What could Leil Lowndes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Be honest and deliver what was initially promised


    How could the performance have been better?

    You can not make a queen out of a witch. The book had NO substance.


    What character would you cut from Undercover Sex Signals?

    The "Author" Leil Lowndes


    Any additional comments?

    The book only dances around the topic and certainly does not deliver what it initially promises. The Author desperately seeks credibility by making reference to some unknown research. To make it even worse, the accent of the reading voice is too harsh on the ear. Truly WASTED Money and Time.

    Do you feel capable of more than you are accomplishing? Are you silently enduring an emotionally barren life? Are you frustrated that you are not making enough money? You need a challenge. You need change. You need...a life strategy.

    Would you listen to Life Strategies again? Why?

    SURE, I have already listened to it three times. It is very enjoyable, utterly practical and every time you listen you absorb more.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sam Sausage in chapter 4 at the minute 49 of the reading because it made the point VERY Clear


    What does Phil McGraw bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His animated tone of voice made me "LIVE" all his stories


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I was speechless at times to discover simple facts that I had never learned. One of them is Life Law number 8 "We teach people how to treat us" WOW.


    Any additional comments?

    I have recommended the book to 6 of my friends and they all bought the Audio Book and even recommended it to other friends. No wonder it sold more than 2 Million copies. My circle of friends rather prefer Audio Books.

    You don't have to be controlled by difficult people! Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes it seems like they’re on a mission to make us miserable! There’s always that one person. The one who hijacks our emotions. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If we could just “fix” that person, everything would be better. But we can’t fix other people. We can only make choices about ourselves.

    Would you consider the audio edition of People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys to be better than the print version?

    Most definately as the author is reading it in a very interesting way


    What was one of the most memorable moments of People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys?

    The moments he was making his suggestions in point format then expanding each point in details. Also all his stories were relevant to the topic and presented in a very interesting way.


    What does Mike Bechtle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The tone of his voice is clearly delivering the points he wrote. I belive this book would have never been as enjoyable if someone else was doing the reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    YES, so many times I felt moved by the book and the points he made. In particular I was touched by his statement "do not be the victim of other people's weakness"


    Any additional comments?

    I so much loved and enjoyed the book that I will buy his book "Confident Conversations" in an audio format too.
