  • Hallucinations

    Have you ever seen something that wasn't really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing? Hallucinations don't belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people.

    Alison says: "Sacks at his best, why couldn't he narrate?"
    "If you love hearing peoples' stories."

    What about Dan Woren and Oliver Sacks ’s performance did you like?

    I found Dan Woren's accent shifting (in order to represent the nationality of someone quoted) a bit annoying at first, but I came around to it. His reading style was helpful to keep track of who was talking, and after the first few times, made me smile when he switched accents.

    I love to hear Oliver Sacks read his work. I can sense the excitement and joy in every sentence, and his voice is endearing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, but this is the case for any Oliver Sacks book.

  • What Every BODY Is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent’s Guide to Speed-Reading People

    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.

    What did you learn from What Every BODY Is Saying that you would use in your daily life?

    This book won't make you a human lie detector, obviously. The book will, however, give you an idea of what to look for if you want to know how someone is feeling. I found this helpful not because I had some need to be able to "read" people, but because I have always been terrible at judging emotion, and this has gotten me into awkward and uncomfortable situations. This book is marketed toward people who want to pretend they are on Law and Order, but it is equally helpful for the socially awkward who want to understand those around them better.
