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.

Well organized!

The book is well laid out and organized, starting off with a generalized overview and then covering specific regions of the body in depth and in sequence. I really liked this approach.

Fantastic!

Though the book provide certain clues and behaviors that may indicate certain attitudes from people interacting with you, the author focus most of his attention on stressful situations, interviews and ways to detect deceptive speeches.

Best!

Great book on body language, I like hearing first hand accounts of real life situations where the particular body movement and negotiation techniques was prevalent. I learn best that way.

Suggested!

I never knew that body language could tell so much. The author gives a great history and reasoning behind why we act as we do and what certain actions mean. I learned so much from this book and would recommend it to anybody who has to deal with other people....basically everyone!

Practical approach

This is a basic no-nonsense book about how to coordinate your feet. The mental devices are very user friendly and understandable. It takes practice to become professional with them, which no book can do for you. Don't be fooled by ease, then! You want to keep things easy while you're on your feet, so that you can make fast decisions. It is my condensed theory of the game, without the mat.

Awesome!

What works for a spy probably would work for me, after all. The way the author sets out the book to illustrate sound thought is interspersed with a tale about spy and draws you into the suspense altogether. You come away with the outcome "a good number."

Highly recommend this book

I would suggest it to almost everyone, because with some interesting points it's a short, succinct listen. That said, keep in mind that it is more applicable than theory, and some information here requires that critical thinking be applied appropriately.

Best!

The best thing about the book is that they tie the details in a believable tale about spy. The book's spy story accomplishes two things. Second , it provides clear examples of any definition used in a practical situation. Second, and more importantly, it does not boring the book, as are so many books about this subject.
