It did have some useful information, though much of it was intuitive. Nonetheless, I suppose if you are a business professional, this might be a good book to reference. The chapters about flirting seemed somehow out of place (3, 4 and 9). Since the subject is so very interesting and relatively unexamined (as far as I know, and as presented to laymen), I have to rate the book well. I suppose in this sense, I was willing to pay for and found 25% of the material actually useful.
I was first inclined to give the book 3 stars, but the author somehow seems very likable and genuine. I wish he wouldn't have mentioned that he is the founder of "Eye-Gazing Parties"; that was a bit strange and off-putting.
The book receives 3.5 stars.
Hoped for much more, unfortunately does not deliver.

Found this book hard to get in to seemed very thrown together, and was more about coverstaions or articles or quotes about eye contact . I could have written this book myself, by doing a Google search of eye contact then copy and pasting every thing i found in to one place.
Not what i expected. It was not a page turner. and the information in this book was hidden within the text in a way that i would find it hard to pick up and use again. If your interested in eye contact, it basically says do it more often till you get used to it.
