Excellent tips and information about how to improve will power effectiveness through scientific research.
The voice actor was vibrant and interesting, which helped hook me onto the story.

Good ideas. Bad execution.

While having the authors narrate their own book usually adds a degree of power to their message, this was not the case here. If "having a face for radio" is an euphemism for ugliness, then these two Ex-Navy Seals have a voice meant for paper books. Their voices are extremely gravel-y and do not vary in tone at all, making it a chore to listen.

The core ideas of this book could be summarized in 5 sentences, but the selling point of this book is to expand on those ideas and explain their applications from a military war zone perspective. However, they still spend too much time focusing on the military aspect of their stories instead of describing the application to experiences that are more relatable to the average person. And the first chapter of the book is basically a disclaimer that their book does not divulge any military secrets and that they did not write this book for publicity.

Overall, instead of reading this book, I would suggest looking up a solid guide on ownership culture and how to apply it to your life.

Joe Navarro makes a strong case for why the ability to read non-verbal communication is such an under-valued skill. If you want to become better at socializing and making people feel more comfortable around you, this book should be at the top of your reading list.
