You will never quite know how many opportunities you have missed by lacking the persuasive powers to truly get what you want out of life. Whether it's attaining more influence at work, or simply getting the kids to do the dishes. All too often people are left wanting, as they aren't equipped with the right psychological tactics to get these things done. Imagine if you could effectively massage conversations in your favor, without manipulation or deception, to effortlessly bring people round to your way of thinking.

Very difficult to follow the monotone presentation. Most of the audio is describing what the person did as a spy.

Some very fast paced irritating narrations that definitely don't relieve stress. The female voices in several chapters seem to be yelling the lectures to a large room

"Why is this town called Mother's Rest?" That's all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It's a tiny place hidden in 1,000 square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.

What did you like best about Make Me? What did you like least?

Very hard to listen and focus on Narrator. Everything sounded the same sing song up down audible.

If you’ve listened to books by Lee Child before, how does this one compare?

Typical Jack Reacher book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

Not unless it was a Lee Child book.

Do you think Make Me needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Series still hangs in there. Like most series, the focus moves to the relationships and away from any action.

Every day of your life is spent surrounded by mysteries that involve what appear to be rather ordinary human behaviors. What makes you happy? Where did your personality come from? Why do you have trouble controlling certain behaviors? Why do you behave differently as an adult than you did as an adolescent?Since the start of recorded history, and probably even before, people have been interested in answering questions about why we behave the way we do.

If you could sum up Understanding the Mysteries of Human Behavior in three words, what would they be?

enlightening
Linear
Entertaining

If you’ve listened to books by The Great Courses before, how does this one compare?

This is a good course. The only issue is identifying the lectures in one continuous file. A better breakdown like the other courses is needed.
