    Story
    "Hmmmmmm"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. The narrator sounds a lot like a cold war era documentary voice. He is clear, but it puts me to sleep. My mind drifts off listening to this guy.


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

    Paul needs a little more life in his voice. He puts me to sleep.


    Did What Every BODY Is Saying inspire you to do anything?

    The information is good and really has been helpful. I watch for the behaviors he describes in those I work and interact with. It took me awhile to get through it though because it was so dry.

    "Nothing new"

    No real insights. Not particularly well organized. Not enough material for the time ... he must have been paid by the word because there is an awful lot of repeating.

    Story
    "I learned a lot. Great listen, love attached PDF"
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Every BODY Is Saying to be better than the print version?

    Listening may would have been a problem except the author explained each position perfectly. Also the added PDF that Audible.com provided was very valuable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the feet are actually the area to watch more than the face or eyes.


    What three words best describe Paul Costanzo???s voice?

    Not Bad


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for salespeople or anyone who negotiates regularly.

    Story
    "A bit monotone, but still worth a listen!"
    Where does What Every BODY Is Saying rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't have to drone about the reader's performance since there are an abundance of users who have done that already. He's not frustrating to listen to, but he's not engaging either.

    The actual content of the book is well worth it though!

    If you actualy pay attention to the book and comprehend what's being said, it will have an effect on how you watch people around you. I'm already one of those guys who natuarly que in on body language (or driving styles on the road) and can quickly estimate what kidn of person I'm looking at and how they'd react to outside influences. This book is great for explaining many of the smaller details that goes beyond the target's natural instincts and more into their current state of mind and intent. I can definitely see how this guy was successfull as an FBI interogator.

    Check the book out to better understand what messages you're subconciously sending out and what others are saying without realizing it! Again, it will have an effect on how you watch and read the people around you!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is instructional with a few stories, so there are no notable characters besides the author.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Be less instrutional in tone, and more expressive instead.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from What Every BODY Is Saying?

    It has changed how I read people's intentions through their body language and posture.

    If you could sum up What Every BODY Is Saying in three words, what would they be?

    Aaah Haa
    Excellent
    Revealing


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    All the "tells" available to see in people who are lying.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Costanzo?

    Depends on the book


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from What Every BODY Is Saying?

    Focus closer on observing people

    He knows what he is talking about, is extremely realistic and through.

    "Eye Opening"

    This is a fantastic book that will change the way you look at people, and make you conscious of the signals you might be sending to them. Once you know what to look for, the signs are easy to see. I was able to put the principles to work easily and successfully. This is one of the best credits I have ever spent.
