At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

I learned a lot about myself and others. I will listen to it again.
Perhaps once a decade, a book comes along that transforms people's lives in a very real, measurable way. This is one of them. Crucial Conversations exploded onto the scene 10 years ago and revolutionized the way people communicate when stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong. Since then, millions of people have learned how to hold effective crucial conversations and have dramatically improved their lives and careers thanks to the methods outlined in this book. Now, the authors have revised their best-selling classic to provide even more ways to help you take the lead in any tough conversation.
What did you like best about this story?
The information in this book should be taught as a basic skill for everyone. My wish is for this communication tactic to become 'common knowledge' shared in the home, schools and workforce.

Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.
What insight do you think you’ll apply from What Every BODY Is Saying?
I learned how to project confidence and some tell I (and others) give when they are not feeling confident. I was also intrigued with the body language tells to watch for when negotiating. I used the 2 minute power pose with my daughter ringette team (that struggles with the belief they can win) and that game was by far their best to date. There were quite a few take aways from this book.
Discover skills to resolve touchy, controversial, and complex issues at work and at home, now available in this follow-up to the internationally popular Crucial Conversations.
If you could sum up Crucial Confrontations in three words, what would they be?
This is a follow up book to Crucial Conversations and not a lot of new information was presented.

Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.
What disappointed you about The Big Short?
Although this is about an interesting topic and time in our history this story was writen without any class. Lots of bad lanuage made it impossible to listen to.
Any additional comments?
Tell the author to grow up and get some class. There is no need for profanity like that in this type of book.
