    too many technical words just thrown in there
    They did ok for the first couple of chapters, then it went way too technical and totally lost influence over me.

    no


    Would you be willing to try another one of Professor Kenneth G. Brown’s performances?

    Would you try another book from Dan Johnston and/or Greg Zarcone?

    I don't know


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Greg Zarcone?

    He didn't read it. It was some annoying nasal toned woman. Just painful to listen to.

    no

    Would you like to have the ability to "peer" inside people's minds and "read" their thoughts based on the sound of their voice? Do you want audiences to "hang on" to your every word with interest and attention? You can! The voice is a powerful communication tool – if you know how to analyze it and use it effectively yourself. Secrets of the Voice is a compelling guide to five essential elements that, once mastered, will help you analyze the mindset of people around you, and use your own vocal skills to influence others.

    Whether they want to admit it or not most women play mind games on men. Some do it ruthlessly and maliciously and others do it because they feel that this is a clever way and the only way sometimes to get men to do exactly what they want them to do in a relationship. These mind games that women play involve the highest form of manipulation. For example, a woman shedding crocodile tears with the sole purpose of getting a man to bend to her will.
