How people of high confidence express themselves and influence others with these expressions and movements.
He peppers the book with interesting and entertaining sidebar stories of tricks used in interrogating criminals and coaching witnesses for trials.
This would be ideal for anyone involved in hiring or negotiations.

Haha I actually read that too! It's a really good read, and is worth reading more than once to get a refresher.

Got off to a really rocky start but now that we're actually dealing with, you know, King Tut, it is basically like a thriller.

would anyone be interested in forming an SF book club of sorts? we all read a book for 2/3 weeks and have a thread/IM service where we could discuss it? Or is that too gay?

Possibly interested, although I might be flakey with pleasure reading.

+1

I'm the type to put a book I'm halfway done with down for a month or two, then pick it back up and finish overnight. Or be intending to read something for weeks or months up until the point where I pick it up, read the first page, and decide right then to read something else.

Sounds like a good idea to me, but I read too sporadically to be of much service. I'll devour two books in relatively short time, then a third will languish for weeks, even if I like it. It took me about six months to finish Juneteenth, and I have no idea why.

You know that's kind of the whole point of being in a book club, don't you?

What I'm saying is that I won't stick to a schedule. Not if I don't want to.

YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!

Like, my point was that we have a book and at a certain pre-determined date, we will all convene to discuss it. Not everyone at a book club even fucking reads the damn thing.

Yes they do. All of them. All the time.

I'm in, but good luck coming up with a reading list that we'll all agree to!
