Disappointing.

I got bored half way through. Basic body language. Expected more from this. Didn't enjoy!

This book says exactly what I thought it would...

Where does Body Language for Dummies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

That said, does it make sense to buy it? To me it did because the price was good and I am really interested in the subject. If you're already something of a body language expert, or even if you only think you are, this might not contain a lot of new ideas but it will still help just about anyone read people better. Actions speak a lot louder than words and their body language tells what even we don't know we're saying.

Simplistic but Understandable


If you don't mind using a credit, or paying current price of $7 theres pretty good info (if concise) on the subject of Body Language.

Great beginner lesson

This was pretty good. It had a lot of things I have already learned myself, but there were a few key points and things that I had either over looked, forgotten, or did not see. I think this one is great for a beginner to this subject, or as a brush up on what you think you already know..

Great book!

No wonder things seem to go wrong for no apparent reason! This book teaches how our bodies may be saying things about us silently. Valuable for anyone getting into their 1st job and indeed all. Of us as well.

Narrator is excellent and engaging. Easy to listen-to. A must-have!
