Ever get that feeling that you just don't like someone's vibe but can't explain why? It's the little things that influence our psychology, and you'll learn how to subconsciously make yourself seem likable, trustworthy, and intelligent.

They're easy to concretely implement in your daily life to level up your charm, wit, and humor. Likability is the key to business, love, and relationships - make sure you are living your potential!

Good subject matter

Badly produced, though. Several times the narrator makes a mistake and it was left in, then re-recorded. Not sure if I got the bloopers edition or what. Liked the subject and the studies a lot.

Over all good.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook, it's a good intro into human interactions with very simple examples. The speaker is clear and no hissing, so a great stepping stone for anyone that is interested in being more social and being more comfortable with yourself socially.

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

The speaker is good, good voice and easy to listen to.

Any additional comments?

Like I said this audiobook is simple and short. Maybe a little to simplified, I would of liked more examples, more scientific background, and more detailed. But all in all worth the time.
