Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
There are a few friends that i think would find this interesting but i think the majority would find it tedious. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in body language.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Well I definitely wasn't surprised by the ending. It’s not like it turned out the author was lying the whole way through. Like all non-fiction books the endings are usually quite obvious.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrators voice started to grate on me after a while and i needed to take frequent breaks. His voice did make it difficult to listen to.
Could you see The Power of Body Language being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
Any additional comments?
Overall the content was very interesting and insightful. I have noticed i have started actively observing people a lot more and trying to spot the meanings behind their movements. It’s also interesting to spot my own pacifying behaviour and note when and why i am doing it. I enjoyed the author’s anecdotal explanations of his work with the FBI which helped to add credibility to what he is conveying. The only thing that let the audiobook down was the author’s narration. I understand why he has decided to narrate his own book but sadly his voice was not engaging and i found him very difficult to listen to. The content of the book however outweighed the narration so on the whole i enjoyed this audiobook.

Yeah, interesting topic and content, Joe seems a down to earth and reasonable fella, and thought the information was good if not life changing!
Just a very weird and non relevant advert at the end of the book?!

I decided to purchase this book to help me with my disabled daughter. My daughter is severely disabled and her ability to communicate when she is in distress is limited. She has lots of conditions including autism and OCD which give her much distress. I was looking for any tools to help me recognize when she is first experiencing stress so maybe I could intervene before she goes into full blown mania. I was not disappointed! Mr. Navarro gave me some valuable tools to use in observing my daughter's behavior. The suggestions in the book have already helped me recognize early stress behaviors in my daughter.
This book also gave me tools which I am excited to start practicing when observing other people's behavior. This could be fun! ;-)
The narration of the book is in a slow, methodical speech pattern which may annoy some people. However, I found that this type of delivery helped me better process the weighty information.
Thank you, Mr. Navarro, for writing this book!!! I am about to listen to the book again.

Informative but needs a professional reader. Slowww and droll read. First book, What Everybody's Saying is much better.
