I learned a lot from this book that I haven't from other books. Although I enjoyed the other book by the FBI agent, Tonya has a much more pleasurable and sexy voice that kept my attention longer.
I'll be listening to this book several times a year, at least, to keep refreshing me on how to be a better communicator.
I like that she not only gave descriptions of body language but also that she gave a perspective from the male AND female side. This has helped me to understand how my body language is perceived by the opposite sex.
No. Well, I don't know..I go back and forth on it.
The characters are all interesting.
Probably not.. Unless I really wanted to hear the book.
Laughed. Cried. Curled in a ball crying for mommy if I heard 'said' one more time.
I really, really like the book!*
*The problem is Wil doesn't do any voices. He really should. The first 2 hours him saying 'said' was the biggest annoyance of any audio book I've listen to. (see above with the crying) But I wanted to hear the rest...so after awhile I accept the torture and focused on the story.
Very good. I listened primarily for educational purposes.
I would say this should be every mans companion book to anything else he is doing to improve his sex life.
The part where the woman dominates the man is...interesting.
I listed to this to learn more about what women enjoy and what turns them on. I learned a lot, and have already improved greatly with pleasing my woman.
Some of them I thought to be quite strange (girl faking as man on boat). But all in all, well worth the time to listen. Having a better idea of what women fantasize about and enjoy has taught me a lot, and I think made me a better man.
I loved the boy learning to burgle story.
Laugh. Is that an extreme reaction??
There are so many reasons why this is one of my favorite books. Consider something like "Game of Thrones" and "Gladiator", but REAL history. Every aspect of humanity is touched.
I learned so much about what Roman life was like, I actually felt like I was watching events unfold at some points.
It's like a continious string of emotions.
Octavians wife during his funeral.
I laughed a lot many times. Shocked many other times.
The narrator did a great job with narration. Sounding confident, and keeping it interesting.
I thought that the author could have spent more time on HOW to make money and automating the income streams. I did not like that he spent so long on telling you where to get information for when you are living overseas. Hours..literally.. the problem is that I didn't feel 100% comfortable with his ideas by the time he got to this part.
I feel like I'd rather be hearing more about how to make a kick ass business (which he does cover..albeit could have talked longer about it). Rather than telling me for hours how to live overseas and what websites would be great for information.
No, I haven't. but the narrator has done a great job of matching the authors own confidence with his narration. He did a great job of having a varied voice, with lots of emotions, very clear and strong. I'd follow this man into battle if I had to.
In fact I hope that Ray will go on to do great things of his own.
Yes! I WILL become part of the new rich.
Yes.It has a lot of good information.
The biggest thing I got from this book is--go for the girl that is interested in you. That in every situation there is 2-3 women that are interested in me..just my the law of averages. Pay attention to the signals, approach the girl that is obviously interested in you. Less rejection. If you go for the hottest girl that has no interest in you it's just a waste of your time.Pay attention. If shes giving you more than a couple of glances now is your chance. I've listened/read to a bunch of 'seduction' books and this book made the most sense of any of them. Although I have gotten a lot of good information from other books. For some reason they key that has been missing is, pay attention to the girl that is actually interested in you!I'm also a blockhead so maybe it just took awhile to sink in.
Don't even try to imagine the voice as the girl on the cover. The main problem I had was listening to her voice. I kept wanting to imagine a cute sexy girl telling me all these girl pickup secrets--but lets face it--google Leil Lowndes and she looks pretty much like her voice. Raspy, maybe been smoking a few too many years, trying to be sexy when you know for a fact she isn't. I mean she's fine for an older women, but what age bracket is she shooting for with this book? 20-40? It's sort of like listening to my mother tell me how to pick up chicks. Which is a little unsettling. I mean she's a great author, the book has lots of great info--but I think her voice detracted from the experience and made it hard to listen to for several hours. I ended up listening in several segments. Although I have to confess that I have listened t the book 2-3x now--it really is mostly great. I just wish she'd stuck with the writing and got someone who sounded the part..
I would highly recommend this book to everyone. Not only did a learn a lot about myself (I'm a man) but I also learned a lot about women!For example..they did some studies on seasonal depression disorder and effectiveness of artificial lights for revealing depression.For men the artificial lights helped their depression and the levels of (the name of the hormone is escaping me) did rise showing a body response and men reported feeling better.However, for women the artificial lights did not help enough to help their depression. and the levels of the 'hormone that is escaping me' did not increase. For some reason the female body is more receptive to natural light.Interesting stuff!
Mostly the ones were she's reading the fantasies of various women. but really this book is jam packed of awesome. (phrasing!)
I loved this book and have listened to it about 5 times now, and have learned something new each and every time.
I've learned about history, how my heroes were not only good--but also evil. I've learned that men are still men. Masters still make mistakes but strive to learn from those and to carry on nonetheless.
This book covers everything from love, inspiration and sex to war, battle and death. From battle tactics to spying and Cleopatra. You wont be bored.
I really enjoyed that he covered other topics directly related to business, but maybe not covered by other business books I've read. He covers goal setting, basic communication as well as running a business. I've needed a refresher to motivate me and this was it!
Well worth the time spent and I'll be listening to this over and over again.
Very well read.
