This informative tale claims that listeners will easily learn the craft of reading body language upon completing this recorded course. Authors and narrators Hartley and Karinch try to convey the lessons in a straightforward seminar, but they almost seem to be outdoing each other. They take turns speaking, sometimes only one word at a time, while at other times Hartley assumes the role of the main speaker as Karinch spouts off chapter titles and section headlines every so often. She acts more like an all-knowing dictionary and encyclopedia, making this audiobook sound more like a textbook. The lessons may work for many listeners, given Hartley's background in the subject, but he races through them so fast that his point is muddled away. There is no time for the audience to take it all in and practice for themselves. A Career Press paperback. (Feb.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

I Can Read You Like a Book: How to Spot the Messages and Emotions People Are Really Sending with Their Body Languageby Gregory Hartley, Maryann Karinch
Are you in business, journalism, law enforcement, or medicine? Do you face students in a classroom or criminals in a courtroom? Are you in a relationship or looking for one? Do you have children? Then you need the skills to read them like a book! I Can Read You Like a Book features a system for scanning and interpreting anyone's body language, enabling you to figure out what they are really saying or feeling: Review: Check out someone quickly, from head to toe. Evaluate: Know what to look for; notice what's relevant. Analyze: Spot voluntary versus involuntary movements; factor in gender, context, culture. Decide: Draw your conclusion. Step-by-step, you will develop the same skills the best interrogators and detectives use to assess spies, criminals, and witnesses. As part of the process, you will observe some of the most famous people in the world through interrogator Greg Hartley's eyes. You'll discover what emotions these politicians, pundits, and stars are leaking through their body language and facial expressions, and what their answers (or non-answers) are really saying. I Can Read You Like a Book gives you the fastest, most efficient method to read body language. In any kind of face-to-face competition, first encounters or daily encounters, and even watching the news, you will spot the messages and emotions that people are really sending-whether they know it or not. As a bonus, you will learn how to use your own face and body to your advantage, whether you're trying to evade a difficult question, handle a sensitive situation, or just playing poker!
