there are many things related with PDF which is not included in audibook
very interesting story
wish to have those PDF mentioned in the book to visualize the readings
I love Audiobooks. I listen to roughly 50-100 hours a month. It's a good thing I work for Audible!
The narrator. He was so generic and flat it was difficult to maintain interest. I ended up listening at 2x speed. The topic was sometimes dry and a little hard to follow - but at least the author attempted to make a few asides or crack a joke or two, but none of that came across in the performance.
No much of a reliance on the PDF file to describe or demonstrate the content. Maybe this wasn't the right kind of book for an audiobook.
It was flat, monotone and lacking in any sort of real inflection. It made it difficult to maintain my interest in the book. He could have just as easily been discussing the merits of diesel engines. I've heard more interesting performances on commercials for mutual funds.
Maybe a corporate training video starring an insurance salesman.
Good book for the content, but prepare for a slog through the narration.
The material was dry and repetitive. Nothing earth shattering or insightful and the performance was perfunctory at best. The content could have been covered in a 30 page report that would have been more memorable had the reader been dynamic.
Little inflection or intonation - like being read to by a robot
not sure , i might have created a summery of each chapter at the end highlighting the points presented in the chapter
slightly back and forth
i did learn something
I've never given a one star review out of hundreds of Audible purchases - but they don't allow zero stars (or minus stars) for which this waste of hard drive space would qualify. Believe this pseudo-science bit of drivel if you wish, but utter drivel it shall remain. I suspect this to be largely a manufactured book deal to supplement the author's FBI pension. Don't expect even the merest whiff of scientific evidence to support his very nearly psychic claims and you shan't be disappointed. To overcome the boredom (and ponderous narration) I found it more informative to attempt to follow the profusion of logical fallacies that permeate this troubling discourse. I so rarely feel that I have wasted a credit (and my time) but, I regret that such is the case. And yes, as many others have so stated, the narration is, at best, quite intolerable. Purchase at your peril.
1. If it had had another narrator (as pointed out by most of the earlier reviews). This narrator seems to be constantly out of breath and pauses whenever he can (within a single breath group in a few cases). It's a miracle that despite the narrator I still could see that the author has done his best to lay out his expertise in a way that would make sense to the least attentive reader.
2. If the editor had cut out most of the redundant passages and "foreshadowing". The introduction seemed so long, I kept wondering if the book would ever get to the point instead of promising to do this and that. There were also quite a few examples that were repeated (along with the accompanying pictures).
3. If the author had gone into the details of the case of the "liar that got away" near the end of the book. The author confesses that even he didn't see it coming (which was refreshing), and since he goes to such great lengths to underscore how difficult lie detection is, it would have been helpful if he had provided his "hindsight" about the case of that liar extraordinaire.
4. If the publisher had hired professional actors to demonstrate the different "tells". Despite his expertise in spotting and analyzing tells, the author (also the man in the pictures) leaves much to be desired as a mime, and the woman in the pictures was even less convincing.
I'd not recommend this book cause it's like recommending half cake recipe to best friend...
Through whole book I had a feeling that some ingredients in this recipe are missing. In my mind if you want to share something with others do it right and honestly or don't bother at all.
Narrator really sucks... He's more boring than all my worst teachers combined.
No, no, no...!!! No movie here!
Say something about yourself!
More information told in a more interesting way.
Basic information that could have been gleaned from a magazine article. No true insghts.
Skip this one.
I can't believe a person can sound so robotic that does this professionally. I had to speed it up just to tolerate his constant rhythm that was not appropriate for how the sentences were worded. Made this very difficult to get through.
I'm not even quite sure how I picked this book to spend my credit on but I'm so glad it turned out to be an awesome find! It gives you the medical reasons why our body language can say more than the words that we say -plus examples that happened through out his career while he was an FBI agent . While listening to this book I became a people watcher and have observed some of the examples he talks about in the book so now I can't help feeling like this book has given me tools to decode what people are saying without saying it. Delivers its promise! Great use of credit.
