Listeners will learn how even the most skeptical of us use rose-colored lenses on those around us, in three sections:
Blinded by Desire - from the alluring lenses of attraction and positive attention to the blindness of marital "bliss" and the distorted lens of delusion.
Overlooking Red Flags in a Professional Setting - how reassuring proximity and the false security of credibility and similarity can lead to costly mistakes.
Be Afraid of What You Can't See - the ultimate cost of wearing emotional blinders around the truly disturbed/criminal, from sexual predation to domestic abuse, stalking, and cyber stalking.
Listeners will learn how: to avoid selective attention; to observe people over time (bad guys rely on first impressions); to ask questions: most people's favorite topic is themselves; to cyber sleuth to verify information and track down inconsistencies.
You need this audiobook if you: want to know if a potential boyfriend is trustworthy; are interviewing or hiring new employees; are selecting anyone to take care of your children; are lending money or property; have partners in business.

This was not really what I expected.
To me this seemed to get really negative, and the solution on how to deal with these people seemed vague. It did have content about social situations I found interesting, however it had many broad sweeping generalities. I got a bit frustrated while listening to this one, stopped it, backed it up, re-listened then felt myself getting agitated frequently. People are frustrating enough all ready to deal with, listening to how irritating they can be seemed to be just the same.
