Frequent references to figures render a book useless on audio
Frequent references to figures. I had no idea what was being discussed
Not really. The preface lasted forever and once it finally got into the subject matter there were constant references to figures and there was no way to infer from context what specifically was being referenced.
Don't buy this audio book. It is probably fine in a print edition.
I loved the topic. It is an abridged version of Dr. Paul Ekman's work with a practical twist. I listened to the audible and them purchased the book. There are several images that they refer to in the text. Ideally it would help to have a PDF of the images handy when listening.
Very great book. Definitely worth the read. You should get the physical copy to follow along with the figure references however a lot of information given even without being able to see the pictures.
