Just for fun

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I have already recommended this book to a few people who I think may benefit from giving it a read, however I do not believe that it lives up to it's, some what exhaustive, claim that it offers 'life changing' wisdom within it's pages/wavelengths.

What could Kevin Leman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Usually when I buy a book of this kind I am looking for lots of real life application suggestions. This book offers little in that regard.

Have you listened to any of Wayne Shepherd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first I have listened to narration by Wayne Shepherd. I would happily recommend his performances.

Any additional comments?

This book was a fun read/listen but my personal opinion is that the psycographic profiles presented by Dr Leman are a bit too exacting and few people would fit into such a precise frame.I give this book a star rating of 462 out of 1000...

Could He Be More All Over The Board?

I liked the concept and believe there is something to it but the number of exceptions to his rules (or primary premiss) for each birth order slot diminishes the idea. Would have been better to address main characteristics then briefly and concisely address the exceptions.

Also, the jumping around on topics and stories made it hard to follow.
