I bought this audiobook hoping for a well written audiobook on *persuasion*. Instead, what I got was a disjointed ramble on body language. I consider body language to be only one element of persuasion. Other elements include value proposition, attitude, listening, structuring your meeting/call, preparation etc.
The only (non-body language) gem I got was this: When you make a request, include the word "because". Eg Can you get me a glass of water because I want one. Apparently, the word "because" prompts people to take you seriously and accommodate your request. Nice tip but it wasn't enough.
So,in conclusion, the content and delivery were off in this book. I'd recommend you skip it.

I did not finish listening to this book. Felt like I have heard most of it in other books. Did not like that at times she made strong conclusions from questionable studies. Also parts of the body language sections were hard to follow for she listed way too many major and minor body language signals all lumped together. Maybe in book form this would be better for you could skip sections.
