    "Interesting"
    Would you listen to The Power of Body Language again? Why?

    I probably will listen to it again. Not that it was such a great book, it was a good book but it contained some good insights into behavior.

    "Great Information"
    What made the experience of listening to The Power of Body Language the most enjoyable?

    Reiman put together a wealth of information about body language. It's an enlightening experience. I finished the book feeling much more aware of myself and am excited to see how I can use it to be a better communicator.


    Any additional comments?

    She begins almost every comparison between men and women with the words, "Women are better than men..." It would have been better if she'd done a balanced treatment for both genders.

    Story
    "Good one!"
    If you could sum up The Power of Body Language in three words, what would they be?

    How to Manipulate!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It gives good examples of situations which you usually encounter. Like the workplace...


    What about Tonya Reiman’s performance did you like?

    She cracks some jokes and will surely make you smile...


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

    Not really! Its sort of a guide book not a story based one and that's why from time to time you'll have to get back to some chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it! Might help you! ^^

    Story
    "Know what you didn't know!"
    Would you listen to The Power of Body Language again? Why?

    I have already listened to the entire two sets twice. The detail and technical descriptions are excellent and listening to it a second time helped me focus on the specific details better. Always learning something more each time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The examples and real life situations resonated with me. I coudl immediatly start to visualize how to use these observation skill or have experienced them without knowing what I was percieving.


    Have you listened to any of Tonya Reiman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not yet, but I will.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Power of Body Language?

    You can learn so much about specific situation that either you are in or observing from afar. I have already been able to work on building better reporte with people at work and in social situations.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read and should be taught as a basic element for communications classes. Highly useful to understanding your situation, client, friend, spose or even children. It's so true that its written all over peoples faces.

    "OK Book on Body Language"

    Unfortunately, this book was nothing to brag about. A lot of the body language discussed in this book I already knew based on common sense and life experience. A good book for the socially awkward perhaps, but the descriptions of body language was simple at best. I would have liked the narrator to read the book slower so that the listener could get a full mental picture of the descriptive body languages discussed in the book.

    "Waste of time!"

    I've studied human behavior and other human aspects for some time! I only have a BA. I'm no fancy, expensive degree holding, "EXPERT" but, I'm confident in most of my analyzations. I do know, you don't need a degree to understand most body language!!! Tonya gives herself way too much credit, which most people with expensive bull Sh@# degree's do!!! But, socity validates them by listening!!! Truth is in this case, If your human, you've already read this book! Even if you're a so, called, (Body Language EXPERT) you'll never be absolutely sure what vibe a persons giving off. A funny smirk, a twitchy leg? They may just need to find a restroom. I could start a widget advisory business and buffalo everyone!! Who'd be wiser. As long as your good at stating the obvious, people will agree and think you know what you're talking about!!! We analyze people every day!!!! We consciously and unconsciously analyze folks and react without missing a beat!!! Most of us just don't waste our time writing about it!!! Someone looks at you mean, you punch there nose, or keep away, no secret! She blabs about a young professional woman who gets no respect from her male subordinates. She finds out this women comes to work dressed like a wh-re and teaches her not to!!! And credits herself for helping her!!! Wow, seems pretty obvious to me!!!! Act and look like a wh-re!!! Get treated like one!!! I guess, do to human nature it's just fun to think you're figuring it out. Real fun when stupid, impressionable people pay you for it!!! My advise, save your money, go to the mall or a crowded (Or not so crowded) place and watch for a little while. You'll learn all you need to know and not have a huge collage loan to pay off, AND, your book will probably be more informational!!! This Just reinforces the point I try to make to people . A beautiful lamb skin degree, framed over the fire place, from an expensive, Ivy league school isn't worth anything compared to true, life experience.
