Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn how to read people? Do you want to walk into a room and instantly have a good idea of what the people around you are really thinking? Read on...

In How to Read People like a Book, we will go deep into exploring body language - not just to understand people, but to also connect with them. After all, why do we find the need to interpret and understand what people say and do? Because, we want to connect with them, create relationships, and be part of a community. How to Read People like a Book will teach you to better understand people through verbal and nonverbal reading skills, thereby allowing you to better function as a part of a growing community.

Here are some of the things you will discover:

  • Ways how exactly will reading body language help you, and how accurate is it really (The myths and facts, so you’ll know exactly what to look for going in)
  • Different personality types and how they affect behavior (Not everyone has the same mannerisms, gestures, and characteristics when outside. You will become aware of the existence of these different personality types in order to adjust to their various temperaments.)
  • The differences between an extrovert and an introvert (The basic personality characterizations that you need to know about and that will predict how you can best communicate with these people)
  • The different communication styles and what should you be using in different settings (Remember, you always want to create just the right amount of impression when meeting someone, whether new or old.)
  • The secret factors that motivates people into doing things   
  • And much more!

Being connected with people and forging strong friendships is one of the hallmarks of a successful life. This book will show you how to be able to grab life by the horns and achieve your full potential when it comes to people and forging friendships and social ties that will last for a lifetime!

did not find interesting

I bought this book hoping for tips and hacks on social communication. I ended up fast forwarding through most of this book until I eventually gave up. It is a general and monotonous repetition of different personality types, could easily have found information online in a few minutes.

Good starting point to understand people

This gives a good information about personality type, verbal and non verbal ques from you and people and how to apply them in real life.

If it wasn't for the voice performance, I would have given it 5 stars

Poorly written/ not that useful

Very poorly written in the sense that it looks like it was written as a high school essay.
It did have some useful information, but most of it was so vague or fluffed that the majority of the material is worthless.

A Lot of Info with No Solid Advice

There as a lot of information, theories, classifications of personalities and behaviors. But no real strategy or approach to using it to “read people” at all.

Audio book and the real book are NOT the same

If you are going to do an audio book it should be the book that was written, and that was not the case with this author. I wont buy another from this author for this very reason.

insightful but......

It brings a lot of details on the different type of personalities and what they can be best at.. This is great, but it gets into a lot of acronyms that dont matter to all the people who simply just want to know how to read people.. This book can be great for academic fellows or training but not for real life application.

Very intuitive book.

Insightful and informative. I liked the introduction to MBTI. Good read for better communication skills and reading individuals during business and social settings.
