    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 consider the audio edition of What Every BODY Is Saying to be better than the print version?

    No. They are essentially the same.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator had a good serious tone that was appropriate to the content. However, it was much too obvious that he was reading and thus it was quite monotone.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."
    "Not what I expected--too adolescent"
    Overall

    I was quite excited about this book given the positive reviews. I'm a fan of post apocalyptic and "zombie" fiction and thought this would be good. Unfortunately, the book was far too adolescent. This should be found in the teen section. The constant comebacks and attitude from the main character is what you'd expect from a 14 year old boy. I realize the author was trying to portray a psychologically damaged character but as a psychologist myself, I found it unconvincing. The story is basic and full of cliches.

    In the 21st century, the United States has all but used up its oil supply. A new source must be found. Our atomic subtugs begin stealing oil from underwater deposits in enemy territory. But none of the last 20 tugs sent to bring back the desperately needed mineral have returned. Ensign John Ramsey of the Bureau of Psychology is planted aboard the Fenian Ram S1881 as an electronics officer. His assignment: find the saboteur in the four-man crew and bring back the oil.

    Chris says: "Decent story"

    Overall

    Decent story but drags a little as 95% of the story takes place in the submarine. Scott Brick's narration is good.

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."
    "Great audiobook"
    Overall

    Amazing story with great narration.
