    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Would you listen to What Every BODY Is Saying again? Why?

    What could be better than information from an ex-FBI officer who spent his time specializing in reading body language?

    Don't bother with anything else on the subject of body language.

    Enough said.

    Great for time management, stuff management and life management. Very straightforward and to the point (as a book so titled should be!). Detailed steps for how to get from here to there.

    For decades they assumed that people who face adversity - a difficult childhood, career turbulence, sudden bouts of bad luck - will succumb to their circumstances. Yet over and over again they found a significant percentage are able to overcome their life circumstances and achieve spectacular success. How is it that individuals who are not “supposed” to succeed manage to overcome the odds? Are there certain traits that such people have in common?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Succeeding When You're Supposed to Fail takes a close look at people who had everything in life stacked against them, and yet somehow succeeded. By looking at not only the stories, but years of research, the book examines six characteristics these people share.

    It's inspiring and life-changing.

    Brafman describes these people, who can seemingly tunnel through the chaos that is their lives and come out the other end, as

    Shocking his stodgy colleagues at the exclusive Reform Club, enigmatic Englishman Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune, undertaking an extraordinary and daring enterprise to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days. With his French valet Passepartout in tow, Verne's hero traverses the far reaches of the earth, all the while tracked by the intrepid Detective Fix, a bounty hunter certain he is on the trail of a notorious bank robber.

    Gary says: "Fabulous narration for Verne Classic"
    "Super!"
    Overall

    We thoroughly enjoyed this story. Some of Verne's books can be tedious, but not so with this book and narrator. The narrator does an excellent job, and is consistent with all the various accents used in this book. In short, he really brings the story to life.

    Someone made some disparaging comments about the music at the start of the chapters. Allow me to clarify: The background music (which plays for a minute or two) is true to the time period and geographical locations where Fogg travels (Egyptian music in Egypt, Indian music in India,...). I generally dislike dramatizations, but I found the addition of the music to simply enhance an already outstanding story - it helped me further lose myself in the story.

    If you're wondering if you should get this or not, just get it. You'll be glad!
