Aspiring and seasoned leaders have been trained to manage their leadership communication in many important ways. And yet, all their efforts to communicate effectively can be derailed by even the smallest nonverbal gestures such as the way they sit in a business meeting, or stand at the podium at a speaking engagement.

    Story
    "Narrator makes this a difficult listen."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The content of this book is fine. However, the narrator has an annoying verbal tick. Before many of the words, she makes a slight "emm" sound. It is as though the once had a stutter and has learned the technique of pre-starting words with this noise. It makes for a very choppy understanding as you cannot listen smoothly.


    What could Carol Kinsey Goman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The sections on the question and answers with business people from around the world are VERY tedious to listen too. I sense that it would be much better if I could have visualized these sections on a page. Listening to them was tedious.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Hart’s performances?

    No. Defintely not. She had the tempo of the reading wrong and an annoying verbal tick. Sometimes, it took my brain a couple of seconds to realize what word she had been saying. For example, if she was saying "Japan" it would be "a Japan" which wouldn't then make sense in the grammatical construction of the sentence. It was so hard to figure out what she was saying that I couldn't process the actual content as the narration went along.


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to The Silent Language of Leaders?

    business people.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could return this book. Definitely not a good read.

    "Horrible Narration, good information"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I couldn't deal with the narrator. Her manner of speaking sounds like she's trying to be an aristocrat. It's supremely annoying and takes away from the content.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No characters


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Hart’s performances?

    No.


    Could you see The Silent Language of Leaders being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
