Easy reading with some positive ideas and thoughts.   Most of these things we all know but this is a great reminder.

I received a complimentary copy of Observe to Unmask from NetGalley.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

This was a very helpful book!  I recognized myself, my husband and others in my life.  I think I read several parts of this novel more than once...I plan to read it again.  Anyone needing or wanting to better understand other people’s motivations really should read this book!

I have a love-hate relationship with this book. I hate it because of the times that it appeared stereotypical, biased presumptuous. I love it for being so on point. Plenty of material for one to mull over and reflect.

A bunch of thanks to NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for this free ARC. This review is of my own accord with no monetary compensation whatsoever from the names mentioned above and/or the rightful owners of this ARC.

Interesting short book about understanding others using their behavior.
On one side it has a few,very few in my opinion,interesting revelations that may be useful to actually understand others.On the other side it is totally unscientific and based on the author opinion and personal experience,with some "keys" that are basically guesses.
Half of the book deserves 5 stars,there are very intriguing insights,the other half doesn't deserve them.
3-4 stars.

This was an interesting short book about human nature and the masks we all wear.

This wasn't for me but I would recommend it to anyone interested in Sociology.

Short and insightful thoughts about human nature and human behaviour. based on the author's personal experiences.  Many I agreed with, some I disagreed with, some I need time to think about and observe people around me to see if I find it true for me.

The sort of book that's probably best not  read all the way through, but dipped in and out of..

The only thing I don't like is the title of the book - it's very vague  and doesn't entice you to pick it up - which is a shame because there is a lot of learn from this book.

In OBSERVE TO UNMASK, Pushpendra Mehta offers the insights gained from a lifetime of observation. Kind, perceptive, and intelligent, this book felt like a fresh and energizing view into who we are and how we see one another and live in this world. I felt smarter, calmer, and motivated to genuinely see and behave with integrity, compassion, and kindness.  A very fast and satisfying read that felt like a conversation with a wise and trusted friend.  I received an advance reader copy of this fine book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my unbiased review.

I found this to be a quick read. The author identifies how you can observe people and learn to see what is going on behind the "mask" that they are wearing. Perhaps it is because I am now sixty years old, and have observed a lot in my time, but I thought that the observations were a bit generalized. This book would probably be of more use to a younger person starting out in their career, or to a high school student looking to understand their peers better.

I love a book that reads as it was written from both the heart and the gut and this right here packs a punch. Small things we overlook but they make our relationships, how we view the world, perceive ourselves, go after our dreams... it's such an insightful and fun book to read.
Thanks Netgalley for the eARC.

I'm always fascinated with people's behaviour and this book is a little guide how to know people better. 

The author reveals our masks that we wear in everyday interactions with others. As author says, we hide behind 4 different individual masks; one is hidden inside us, the other is known only to loved ones, third to extended friends and relatives and fourth to the rest of the world.

Great book for all who want to know self and others better.

As I am an avid observer of people, the title of this book piqued my interest. 
I am pleased that I had a chance to read this informative book. The book was based on a question ‘What small things can you tell about a human’s behaviour?’
 By observation Pushpendra Mehta gets straight to the point in an easy understandable form on how to unmask someone’s character by observing the way they talk and treat others as well as assets. This book is in the Adult category but it would be suitable for young adults as well, with a wealth of Information to help them make good decisions about their associations with friends and co workers etc. A good guide for self improvement and self reflection for the readers too. I would recommend this book to others.

I was drawn to this book because of the sociology aspect to it. I find human nature fascinating and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this book. The concepts were easy to read, easy to understand and thought-provoking. I particularly enjoyed the questions he asked. It made me look into my own life and evaluate my habits and the habits of my friends and family. I found myself nodding along as I read the book, engaged with the author and agreeing with much of his book.
