The BIG downside is she seems to have little respect for the readers time and finances. The first chapter says you need about 2 hours a day, for 7 days. I thought that was doable. But what I didn't expect was all the crazy suggestions: Buy a Nintendo, Go Skydiving, Sign up for Belly Dancing Lessons, Sign up for Salsa dancing, etc... Also if you were going to do this in 7 days and go to work, how would you get into any of the classes for find the time to go skydiving all within your "7 day makeover/"
She also mixes it up with home alone exercises and wome work out in public. I thought it would be more observation inside and out. But it requires: Staring at a painting at a museum for 30 Minutes for example... this takes at least an hour and I'm supposed to read and do 2-3 more exercises? Get a friend to come over and rollplay while you videotape, this one would take at least an hour... SO I find it's just not realisic or well thought out so I find that frusterating.
Bottom Line though, the content is good, just don't expect to be able to do her exercises the way she suggests unless you have a lot of extra cash and tons of free time...Oh and a video camera and friends that are available at the drop of a hat.
The author makes many good points and the book is easy to read and follow with a fair number of black and white photos showing the before and after effect of each newly analyzed body language characteristic, but most disturbing is the continual encouragement to visit her official website [...]. I buy every book simply to be informed or entertained but not solicited. I am unsure how many agencies or companies would put great credence in a for-profit corporation issuing certifications. It has been my experience that most companies want job candidates and consultants to have degrees from established colleges/universities which are appropriately accredited. The book is full of first person testimonials from graduates of her course who proclaim miraculous reincarnations into far superior beings after taking the advertised course and after which they can lead their own groups, hopefully garnering some speaking engagements, as well. For an original and similar pep talk one can read Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People originally published many decades ago. It also has the same authoritarian flavor and doctrinaire game plan.
Many of the author's suggestion make a great deal of sense and are worth following, but in one instance she makes a great faux pas in stating that women wearing heels leads to an improvement in their posture.Read more ›
I honestly do look at the world differently now. It's as if that 50%+ of the communication we do (without saying a word) is finally starting to make some sense to me. It's all about awareness. You can look around a room full of stuff and not really notice a thing, but if I ask you to look around and only notice red things... well... try it. :)
This book definitely needs to be practiced (and probably re-read when we're feeling rusty), but think about it... once you have attuned your awareness to this "new language", you'll be practicing every single time you talk to someone. Just get all up on it, own it, and go with it.
I've been exposed to the "old style" body language, and some of the influence from NLP materials, and have to say this level of body language material has not been expressed in any other book I've seen. This also brings up my only real beef with the book: Mrs. Driver seems to downplay NLP information in the first portion of the book, but then sprinkles surface-level applications of it throughout the rest of her book without attribution. I don't quite understand this tactic - it's a minor point at best.
Buy it, read it, do it, have fun with it. How can you afford to miss out on so much of the conversations that go on in your life?Read more ›
