Great book

Alright, so this book teaches some underhanded and somewhat deceptive tactics at manipulating and influencing people you encounter. Are these skills necessarily evil to possess, or are you at a disadvantage for not knowing them yourself? That's an important question to ask. Frankly, some people use these tactics on YOU in the corporate world, regardless of whether or not they are even aware of it. But overall i found the book to be fun, entertaining, and engaging.

Rather boring and rather General

It’s hard to believe I listened trough the whole book voluntarily and paying for it at the same time. It is a very monotone book and that just naturally shuts my brain down.

Helpful Guide Book

This book does a very good job of helping you understand body language. It blends the theory behind body language with numerous pictures and practical explanations for observing and interpreting people's non-verbal behavior. This book does what the title promises, and gives us a look into the potential that Limited Liability Companies and Limited Partnerships hold for business owners. In addition, the book is well-organized, and the cases he develops to illustrate his points are easy to follow and tie in well with their respective topics. Highly recommended.

Very Basic Information for an Expert

Luckily this was a three-book set. Not worth the full price. Information was very basic. Nothing Beyond what you would learn in a college communication class. can honestly say there was only one bit of information not previously known. and as always become suspicious of "experts" who's credentials are "classified".

basic info and monotonous delivery

this material is way overpriced, should cost under $7 . It gives very limited examples, generalizations, and does it at a break neck pace. it does not help at all better understand other people in every situation as the title advertised. money not well spent.

one of the best book

This is a consistent challenge to small and medium business marketers who have to persuade the consumer or purchaser that their product is worth the investment. From that perspective alone, this book is one of the best I've listen.

Worth the time to listen!

Though he could've run it by an editor before publishing. Great intro to the topics, but leaves you wanting at parts. More informational and less entertaining than some of his short books.

Great Grab!!!

The situational stories make it easy to remember how and when to apply the methods taught. I bought both books for my Dad, Father-in-law, and brothers. They love it too! Money well spent.
