valuable questions.

I love this book, I love how mostly it taught how valuable questions you can ask people, including yourself can give you answers which can reveal all of or somewhat a good amount of information into who a person is, what they stand for and a view into their values. Great book, a lot of information to take it, I listened twice and still feel like their is bits I will not retain but a solid foundation has been achieved and I have gained way more insight and knowledge now and it has already given me the ability to look at situations, people, my surroundings etc, in a different light, a more positive light, this book promotes a lot of good, a lot of awareness, a broader mind, i loved it 🔥

Good Content but repetitive

this book helps to make sense of yourself and other and contains great points but points were repeated a little too often.

Not much novel/insightful content. Poor narrating.

Although much of the content is fairly interesting. There is little novel content that one wouldn't have read in other popular psychology books or online articles.

The narrator in the audible version is extremely dull and uninspiring. He sounds like he doesn't mean or take an interest in anything he says and uses the same intonation in almost every sentence, speeding up his words at the end.

It makes such a difference when a narrator sounds like he actually understands and is interested in what they are reading.

Somewhat generic advice

I learnt a few new things about human behaviour, but felt that some of the advice was quite generic.

Fascinating and Insightful

At the end the book the narrator says , thus has been how to read people like a book; he really should have said, thus has been fascinating! Lots of interesting concepts and insights, will definitely listen to this book at least once or several times again.

Summary piece with dull narration

The book is simply a regurgitation of others work with a narration that’s painfully dull.

Whilst the work referenced is valid and interesting the author offers no original thought or independent theory leaving this book as little more than a summary of others work.
