I found the book a collection of opinions and no new scientific insights - if any. Forget neurology, biology; think Liberal Arts, anecdotal evidence, literature and philosophy. To me it was a waste of time with no new knowledge or insights to be had. If you have a very basic level of knowledge and/or education, you may get more out of it - but beware of the opinions vs the science.
The narrator does a decent job and is quite agreeable and understandable. Quite 2x speed compatible.
Long story short, I think this book may provide you with some value if you haven't read Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People" (and if you're ok with the narrator's smug and cutesy tone). If you haven't read it already, I highly recommend reading (listening to) that instead of this book. If you already read "How to Win Friends and Influence People" I recommend you to re-read (re-hear) it before re-considering buying "Talk less, say more".
