Dan reveals, in a very reader-friendly way, how we can learn to define the emotions of those we are talking with by simply observing their facial expressions. He goes into great depth, giving real life examples, while sharing some intriguing comparisons as well. Comparing Oprah to Ellen, Steve Jobs to Bill Gates, Jimi Hendrix to Prince, and interestingly enough, Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner.
I would call this a "Must Read" for anyone in an HR role.
