Does the book deliver on this promise? Well...sort of. Each chapter feels like a Reader's Digest version of other great business books. I've read all this stuff before in books like "Influence" (Bob Cialdini), "In the Line of Fire" (Jerry Weissman), "The Psychology of Persuasion" (Kevin Hogan) and so on.
Perhaps that's fine. An executive would find value in a single book that summarizes key ideas from other business books.
Monarth goes broad without going deep. Each chapter reads more like a blog article than an intelligent and indepth discussion. The advice is thrown out casually, like it's the easiest thing in the world to learn how to read someone's body language. Monarth does not linger on a point but breezily moves onto other points.
And that's where my disatisfaction lies. Monarth adds no new ideas of his own. Monarth had an opportunity to stitch all these great insights together into something bigger - a useful system for managing your executive presence. Instead, it's all left disconnected and shallow; chapter after chapter of lists of other people's ideas.
The challenge in processing his wealth of knowledge is the abundance of one-sentence paragrpahs, or just plain long sentences! At times, it was tedious to get through a concept. Would've like more "how to" info on the social intellengence segment. He does a terrific job with branding yourself online, however.
