as probably with lots/all of these kind of books it does not reveal any magic tricks. the things explained are simple and sound quite logic when reading. nevertheless are lots of these things neglected when communicating and quite easy to reintroduce in the own communication techniques. especially the part of the physical signals that are sent out during communication are quite interesting and actually made me watching people on tv to spot them. i just finished the book (easy read, also for not native speakers !) and cant tell how much i will benefit from it. however i am motivated to start actively integrating the practices in my daily life! reading recommended !
