The beloved actor shares fascinating and powerful lessons from the science of communication and teaches listeners to improve the way they relate to others using improv games, storytelling, and their own innate mind-reading abilities. With his trademark humor and frankness, Alan Alda explains what makes the out-of-the-box techniques he developed after his years as the host of Scientific American Frontiers so effective.

Alan Alda is an incredible story teller. The subject is not a fictional story though. It is a fantastic look at how people relate, or don't, to each other through verbal and visual cues. Mr. Alda does an exceptional job explaining the material in a way that never makes you feel like you're learning something...there's no struggle. His wit is on full display.

In this sequel to Those Who Dare, US Major John Randal, Commander of Strategic Raiding Forces is back, leading a crew of British Commandos, Royal Marines, and Royal Navy raiders on bigger and bolder missions to foil Hitler's Third Reich. Off the Gold Coast colony in Africa, the Germans are operating a naval intelligence ring that gathers information about British convoys in the southern sea lane. Couriers carry the data to nearby Rio Bonita, a tiny Portuguese island protectorate, whence they are broadcast to Nazi U-boats and surface raiders from a clandestine radio station onboard one of three interned enemy ships.

Miles Meili has done Phil Ward a great service in narrating this book. The story is well connected and moved forward at a good pace. Miles filled in accents and demeanor of the characters very well. As a book unto itself the story does not build the characters up too much. However, this is a series and so the characters are build across multiple books.

I read the reviews indicating this book wasn't a practical book full of concrete steps to do the things talked about. I felt for every point that was made, the descriptions of what was happening and why, lead to the "how to". This was a good book for me.

This book popped up on a Buddhist Facebook page and the marketing babble read as if it was non-fiction. This book is overly adjective-strewn, toys in the attic, surely gone fishing, musings of fictional life experiences. I don't want to paint an unfair picture, but if you were expecting non-fiction, this is not the book to buy. If you want a whimsical fictional story, read other peoples review and decide whether you want it.
