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.
Well read X
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.
Pretty much anybody with a more natural/conversational style.
Many interesting bits of trivia. Might matter more to people in HR, sales, poker players, etc.
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.
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.
I have recommended this book because it is informative and entertaining. So many insights that you will identify with.
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.
BEST BOOK ABOUT THE BODY LANGUAGE I KNOW.!!!!!
no unfortunatly i didnt
would be complicated film.i dont think it should be made in to film. but series of training videos- yes
get the book. read it twice.or more.but dont share:))
This is an AMAZING audiobook. Just listen and practice, you will be surprised about the accuracy of the reactions described in this audiobook in literally ALL people around you. You can actually READ what everybody is saying.
absolutely yes!!! thanks to this book, now I see life differently, from a better point of view. Joe Navarro knows exactly what he is talking about. People, pay attention to every detail, piece of info from this book, it will enhance your life dramatically.
great performance!!! I like his voice
this is my first time rating any product on Internet. Thank you Joe Navarro, great work, by the way I was born in Cuba too.
I'll pay more attention to details when I speak to people and adapt the way I interview employees taking into account what Joe Navarro suggests.
Obviously, one has to be careful not to over interpret the body language of our peers. The life long experience of the author cannot be acquired just by listening to his book, but only by the careful practice of keener observation.
Informative, interesting and practical
I've read most of the books on body language and I found this one to be the most informative with tips on how to put the theory into practice. The author does a great job of pointing out that every nervous reaction is not necessarily a sign of deception.
Enjoy the adventure
No wonder so many people who break the law get arrested and convicted. Their body language gives them up to the Police.
Full of insights on how to determine if someone is telling us the truth. Are they being honest, or are they hiding something? This book gives us clues for answering that question.
I thought this might struggle as an audio book but it does work. There is a lot about the reasons behind body language which enabled the author to clump body language in to bite sized chunks to make it digestable.
"Sensible and well balanced."
Unlike some books on the subject, this author is very clear that there is no 'Pinnochio effect' which is to say you cannot see a gesture and declare someone is lying. What does happen is that we give off signals of stress or comfort, and reading these signals is very easy and rewarding if you are in a business meeting. His years of experience in the FBI and as a trainer are often included and fascinating in illustrating the book.
The things he says and the way he describes them are easy to understand and actually laughable when you notice for yourself or at someone else. I think this book is quite comprehensive to satisfy my interest at speed reading people for personal life and business.
A nicely laid out book with some really interesting points. Joe's years of experience really come through, especially as he freely admits even he can still get it wrong!
He's like a real Cal Lightman (Lie to Me) and gives some very useful tips to interpret body language.
"Great story poorly told"
This is a really good book and gives you a lot of insight into body language - you start noticing things that you wouldn't have previously - the story is very drawn out though and it is not helped by the narrator of the audiobook who speaks in a dull, monotonous tone. If you are able to get past that the book is well worth listening to.
"Amazingly interesting and ultimately life changing"
I have been enjoying a spate of non-fiction and decided to try this book. It is excellently written and very informative and has already made me look at myself and my posturing. Its amazing how much you give away with body language.
The best part of the book is the discussion on deception which blows a large hole in the premise of the TV show "Lie to me" which is utter nonesene as with most myths about falsehood and detection.
This book is full of wisdom and insight. Joe Navarro doesn't simply provide his (expert) opinion but explains the mechanisms behind body movement and the types of movement which reveal hidden emotions. This is not another book on Body Language, this is a book about the interaction between the brain and the body and how to read body movement to gain insight into the concealed emotions of an individual. A fantastic listen.
This was a great listen, full of well-explained non-verbal clues that people exhibit involuntarily, due the limbic brain's natural responses to certain situations. Highly recommended!
"Listened Once - need to listen a few more times"
Much along the lines of another reviewers comments, I'm sure the narration could have been tightened a little though, the writing style of the author is very much 'why use one word when you can use 10'.
That being said, I thought the content was very interesting and useful in both a business and personal context.
Will have to listen to it a few more times yet before I'll start using the tools and tricks in earnest.
Sat in a meeting today feeling myself doing some of the things mentioned herein, the things that I could or should have been gaining from their faces rather than portraying in mine. Nonetheless, shows that the content has stuck in mind and therefore value cleaned from the 7 or so hours this book took.
"This Is A Must"
This book ive listened to a matter of 5 times and cant get bored it teaches you what to look for in people and shows you tue signs also a good book to have starting out on the road of cold reading and decepting people
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
