Would you try another book from Paul Ekman and Dalai Lama and/or Richard Gere?

I adore Richard Gere and enjoy studying Paul Ekman's work but this was rather hard to listen to. It's very solitary not funny and remnant of sitting in a monotone college lecture.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

More antidotes, a story line that can bring you in to make an analogy of the science behind the work. It just needs something to pull you in. It's very hard to understand the Dalai Lama and Paul Ekman talking but interesting to hear their world views. I was hoping to learn more about Paul Ekman's work and how it works.

How could the performance have been better?

It's a little monotone. It's a series of conversations between Dalai Lama and Paul Eckman.

Did Emotional Awareness inspire you to do anything?

No, the book wasn't exactly inspirational. Paul Eckman is the same man that the popular TV series "LIE TO ME" is based on. He is an amazing man and both men have a lot to tell. It's just a hard listen.
