    "Better in print"

    Great information. Straight forward. But better as a reference manual in print than an audible book. I would give this 4 stars in print, but 3 stars in audio.

    "Helpful in All Areas of Life"

    I have loved watching Tonya Reiman on her frequent television appearances, discussing the body language of celebrities and politicians, and I'm so glad that she has written this book. Learning the techniques of exuding confidence and making a great first impression are essential for career growth...and being able to know when someone is lying is a valuable skill to possess. I loved listening to her and highly recommend this audiobook.

    "Great book"
    Any additional comments?

    This would have been infinitely better in print with illustrations. In fact, it would be incredible on DVD. As an audiobook, it is a bit challenging sometimes to picture the facial features or body postures/movements she describes. Nonetheless, a thoughtful, well presented and stimulating listen. Just because something could be better in a different media format, I can't take away stars. It definitely earned what I gave it (4's and 5's).

    "A manual on body language!"
    Where does The Power of Body Language rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This ranks as my first audio book ever so its the 'best' so far! I'm very pleased i found it useful & entertaining.


    What other book might you compare The Power of Body Language to and why?

    I compare it to books in the 'power and influence' genre of nonfiction so books such as 'The 48 Laws of Power', 'The Art of Seduction', and 'How to Read People Like a Book' come to mind. Tonya's book gears me toward direct and indirect use of personal power. Its an excellent primer on being both observed and observer of situations, proactive and subtle. The other books i mention are just examples of this field but this book also adds to your repertoir by helping you use your senses in practiced and practical manners. These other books are rooted in descriptive examples but this book is rooted in prescriptive action.


    What did you learn from The Power of Body Language that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned that a most valuable thing you can do to influence people is to make your body language 'effortlessly attractive'. Step back while communicating with others by being present to critique that other person will reveal just how much 'leakage' in nonverbal communication is going on. Those clues are everywhere so the more signals you pick up on, the more likely you'll know what to do to control the situation (or to not control). I especially liked the parts about identifying genuine happy facial expressions!


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing which bothered me was the sheer amount of advice being dispensed. I can't remember it all so it becomes overwhelming. It would be nice to have from Tonya some kind of memnonic or framework for keeping most of this knowledge organized in my mind.

    "Change your body"
    What made the experience of listening to The Power of Body Language the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.

    "So-so...some good information but lacking focus"

    I learned some good information about body language and perception from this book but I feel that it needed to be better focused on teaching people how to analyse themselves and implement techniques for adjusting their own body language to meet what they desired to be and feel. It did a little of that but there was too much insignificant fluff that clouded it.

    I would be ok with the author leaving out ALL of the tips for how to seduce the opposite sex. I felt like the subject drifted into instructions for hookers.

    "Interesting and useful tools."

    This book was really interesting. It has some great information that could really give you an edge in your communication skills - if you could just remember it all! This book probably deserves a couple of listens if you actually want to benefit from the knowledge. Tonya Reiman's reading is good and gets better as she progresses through the book. This book is much more interesting that some of the other books about body language.

    "Ok book"

    Wasn't really what I was looking for. It doesn't really teach you a lot of body language movements that you can read on other people. More about facial expressions, which were sometimes hard to imagine when your listening without pics.

    "pay close attention"

    Sometimes you may lose track of what is being narrated. Just start over and pay close attention. Nothing basic about this book. very informative, but sometimes hard to relate because the narrator has a monotone voice.

    "How to succeed in body language"

    I just listened to this a second time and I decided that there will be a third and fourth listen. While it would be helpful to have pictures of the expressions that are mentioned, everything else about this book is impeccable

    "Verry good for a first book in body language"

    You will find enough valuable information. Some things are common sense, everybody should know them and are not new but others are very interesting and offers a new way to address a meeting. This is the first book he read in body language and so far I've been a pretty confident person and naive, not really emphasized to read what others say. A person who has read or get a documented in this area should consider the book superficial but for someone like me is the ideal book. (english is not my mother language, hope you understand what i meant)
