    Story
    "Interesting"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the narrator. It was almost like Max Headroom was reading the book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    no ending, not a story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was way to dramatic! He kept pausing and accentuating every 'and'...very distracting


    Was What Every BODY Is Saying worth the listening time?

    Yes, it is full of information and coaching particularly to help the listener keep the skill of reading people in perspective.


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting but would have been better with a different reader!

    Story
    "Revalations 101 for the modern man"

    This was truely enlightening. Everyone knows the old chestnut about folded arms being a physical communications barrier, but this book puts all of the jigsaw pieces together. It also points out that eg. folded arms, alone, is not the full story. The delivery by Paul Costanzo was a little cluncky in areas, almost like the narrator took a breath mid sentence or mid word.
    I will listen to this one again to pick up the subtleties that I missed in the magnitude of information.
    In reality, the less people that listen to this book, the more I will have the upper hand in negotiations etc. It is easy to put into practice the "secrets" that Joe explains. I was noticing minute body cues after the very early parts of the book.

    "Couldn't get very far in - narrator irritated me"
    What did you take away from What Every BODY Is Saying that you can apply to your work?

    Thee. Narrator. Talked. Like. Joe. Friday. Ma'am. Hard to. Listen To.

    Mispronounced 'the' in the same way that George W Bush did when followed by a word starting with a consonant.

    "A universal language to secretly give perspective"
    What did you love best about What Every BODY Is Saying?

    The information boils down to common sense ... easily understood but you're one of only a few who understands ... giving you a tremendous edge in any conversation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It just teaches you how to be aware of the obvious.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Costanzo – was your favorite?

    The example of the car bomber's neo-cortex dialog, and how it would be easy to declare;


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Feet!!

    Story
    "Body Language systematic consideration"

    I think the best thing about this book is that it makes it pretty clear that Body Language is an indicator for when you should be thinking about responsible follow-up exploration. Using shifts in body behaviors to not just taking things at face value. So in no way is there a means to tell if deception is occurring but the body will tell you if something is not right and single indicators are less reliable than multiple indicators such as the legs and arms behaving in a manner inconsistent with the words and face.

    "Interesting trivia-but reader... meh"
    What did you like best about What Every BODY Is Saying? What did you like least?

    Pretty interesting, but I may feel less positive had it not been on sale. Reader reminded me of 1960s-era educational filmstrip narrator. Not at all conversational.


    If you’ve listened to books by Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins before, how does this one compare?

    n/a


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Costanzo?

    Pretty much anybody with a more natural/conversational style.


    What did you take away from What Every BODY Is Saying that you can apply to your work?

    Many interesting bits of trivia. Might matter more to people in HR, sales, poker players, etc.


    Any additional comments?

    I found myself taking a lot of it with a grain of salt. For example the part about what legs/sitting positions suggest. I'm extremely short, and many of the behaviors described,in my case, mean nothing more than trying to get comfortable in chairs designed for taller folks! To the author's credit, he stresses that there are always exceptions.

    "Very Informative!"

    As a business owner, I have to deal with a lot of people. This book is a great start at understanding people's true intentions by reading their body language. I am sure their is more to learn, but I found this fascinating, informative, and insightful. The author is honest in saying that it is almost impossible to truly know if a person is being honest, but body language can help if you know what to look for.

    Make sure you have the pdf downloaded and available to look at. This is one book that might be better read than listened to because of the pictures referenced.

    "Fantastic introduction to body language"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book because it is informative and entertaining. So many insights that you will identify with.


    What did you learn from What Every BODY Is Saying that you would use in your daily life?

    I saw two people in a meeting at work, sitting close together but leaning far apart. It was having listened to the book that I could tell they really didn't like each other. So many insights you can apply to the real world. I also bought it in hard copy to see the images. Many are online.
