The information boils down to common sense ... easily understood but you're one of only a few who understands ... giving you a tremendous edge in any conversation.
It just teaches you how to be aware of the obvious.
The example of the car bomber's neo-cortex dialog, and how it would be easy to declare;
I think the best thing about this book is that it makes it pretty clear that Body Language is an indicator for when you should be thinking about responsible follow-up exploration. Using shifts in body behaviors to not just taking things at face value. So in no way is there a means to tell if deception is occurring but the body will tell you if something is not right and single indicators are less reliable than multiple indicators such as the legs and arms behaving in a manner inconsistent with the words and face.
A voracious reader, especially for a dog. Of course, terriers are superior. Not bragging. Just true.
Pretty interesting, but I may feel less positive had it not been on sale. Reader reminded me of 1960s-era educational filmstrip narrator. Not at all conversational.
Pretty much anybody with a more natural/conversational style.
Many interesting bits of trivia. Might matter more to people in HR, sales, poker players, etc.
I found myself taking a lot of it with a grain of salt. For example the part about what legs/sitting positions suggest. I'm extremely short, and many of the behaviors described,in my case, mean nothing more than trying to get comfortable in chairs designed for taller folks! To the author's credit, he stresses that there are always exceptions.
As a business owner, I have to deal with a lot of people. This book is a great start at understanding people's true intentions by reading their body language. I am sure their is more to learn, but I found this fascinating, informative, and insightful. The author is honest in saying that it is almost impossible to truly know if a person is being honest, but body language can help if you know what to look for.
Make sure you have the pdf downloaded and available to look at. This is one book that might be better read than listened to because of the pictures referenced.
I have recommended this book because it is informative and entertaining. So many insights that you will identify with.
I saw two people in a meeting at work, sitting close together but leaning far apart. It was having listened to the book that I could tell they really didn't like each other. So many insights you can apply to the real world. I also bought it in hard copy to see the images. Many are online.

absolutely yes!!! thanks to this book, now I see life differently, from a better point of view. Joe Navarro knows exactly what he is talking about. People, pay attention to every detail, piece of info from this book, it will enhance your life dramatically.

this is my first time rating any product on Internet. Thank you Joe Navarro, great work, by the way I was born in Cuba too.
I'll pay more attention to details when I speak to people and adapt the way I interview employees taking into account what Joe Navarro suggests.
Obviously, one has to be careful not to over interpret the body language of our peers. The life long experience of the author cannot be acquired just by listening to his book, but only by the careful practice of keener observation.
Informative, interesting and practical
I've read most of the books on body language and I found this one to be the most informative with tips on how to put the theory into practice. The author does a great job of pointing out that every nervous reaction is not necessarily a sign of deception.
