Almost Useless in Audible Format

Hadnagy reads off tables, figures, and pictures which you cannot see. And he recites in-text citations word for word. Very frustrating, and some content is useless without that data, not even being described.

For content, as someone who is experienced with Ekman's work, Hadnagy gives a fine, basic overview. This is a good book for beginners, with no training or little knowledge of Paul Ekman's work or microexpressions.

Enjoyed the audio version and them bought the book

I loved the topic. It is an abridged version of Dr. Paul Ekman's work with a practical twist. I listened to the audible and them purchased the book. There are several images that they refer to in the text. Ideally it would help to have a PDF of the images handy when listening.
