Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People, written and read by Vanessa Van Edwards.

Do you wish you could decode people? Do you want a formula for charisma? Do you want to know exactly what to say to your boss, your date or your networking partner? You need to know how people work.

As a human behaviour investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards studies the hidden forces that drive our behaviour patterns in her lab - and she's cracked the code. In Captivate she shares a wealth of shortcuts, systems and behaviour hacks derived from her research, to help you take charge of interactions at work and at home. You'll learn how to execute a social game plan to navigate any social situation; how to speed-read faces for seven universal 'microexpressions' that can be used to predict people's emotions; and much more besides. When you understand the laws of human behaviour, you can get along with anyone. With Vanessa's help you will never interact in the same way again.

Includes a bonus PDF of quizzes, graphs and illustrations.

SKIP THIS ONE

Judging from other reviews this book reviewed quite well, there is something dodgy going on here, there is no way this book deserves the high star ranking that it has got as it is so lacking in any practical information.....seems like it was written for a first grader, you'll regret buying it.
