Great information

Good stuff to be aware of and to know when these kind of tactics are being done to you or to control your own behaviour, body language and speach.

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.

Worth the time, maybe not the money

Interesting read but I found the author a little braggy about being in the CIA. I found the science a little challenging to believe because the author is not credentialed for such explanations. There were a few interesting techniques but not enough tangible “how to’s” for me.
