At page 50, after using the Cliche term everyone has heard that the eyes are the windows of the soul, the author is still talking about eye gazing parties, I mean give me a break, I want to know how to use eye contact in actual social situations to get what I want pure and simple.. for business and for sex.
Eye contact in a controlled situation (gazing parties) where everyone is forced to do it, is not reality, and is not the true power of eye contact, or a realistic expectation of how to use it.. ever. The true power of eye contact is making a million dollar deal with an introverted titan in a parking lot or scoring the babe of your dreams in a grocery store. Or face-reading when you're being lied to by a salesman. Or even to connect with your wife when you're copulating. Or how to use it while giving a speech to 400 people. And at page 50 if the author hasn't even touched on a real world example; I basically saw him as being a yuppie Casanova living in a fantasy world with no concrete experience or advice. It was written sloppily, like a magazine article in cosmo that doesn't end with no real direction. Look at the photo of the author and you'll get a good idea of what you'll find inside.
I am horrible at eye contact. I know for a fact there is a lot about it that I don't know. I know for a fact there are books out there that cover practical uses of eye contact because I own some of them, because I had to purchase more books on the subject after this one. It would not have been hard to teach me something new about eye contact. I gave Body Language For Dummies 5stars to give you an idea, that simple book changed my life.
The Definitive Book of Body Language was much better and much more useful in almost any situation imaginable.. unless you plan on going to an eye gazing party sometime soon. Its short chapter on eye contact has more concrete, real world examples on how eye contact effects relationships, and it then you get the bonus content of how to position your arms, legs, head, hands, and feet and ties it all in together with simple and useful illustration. I liked it better than Body Language for Dummies too by the way in case you were curious.
Strangely enough, this book helped move me past something I have struggled with for years- keeping eye contact during an individual conversations.
Buy it, read it. Its the best book in the marketplace with this focus.
Throughout the whole book, literally, EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER the author spends atleast half the chapter (and collectively probally over half the book) reiterating why eye contact is so important, rather than explaining techniques to improve eye contact or secrets of it he, his only suggestion throughout the entire book essentially is: make eye contact with other people, but not TOO much eye contact.
This author has no credentials, no degree in anything related to psychology or anything to do with eye contact- nothing. Don't believe all the 5 star reviews because they are all most likely faked, and don't waste your money on this book.
