Publisher's Summary

He says that's his best offer. Is it?

She says she agrees. Does she?

The interview went great - or did it?

He said he'd never do it again. But he did.

Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you. You will discover:

  • The ancient survival instincts that drive body language
  • Why the face is the least likely place to gauge a person's true feelings
  • What thumbs, feet, and eyelids reveal about moods and motives
  • The most powerful behaviors that reveal our confidence and true sentiments
  • Simple nonverbals that instantly establish trust
  • Simple nonverbals that instantly communicate authority

Filled with examples from Navarro's professional experience, this definitive book offers a powerful new way to navigate your world.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Fascinating and captivating Method"
    Where does What Every BODY Is Saying rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    The book material was great and the reader has a fine voice. However, the Reader's delivery was not very good. It sounded like a kid in first grade trying to read out loud and hesitating in deciding which words to emphasize. With an experienced reader, this Audio Book would be an enjoyable "listen." As it is, it becomes painful to listen while the reader hesitates over many words during his reading.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Every BODY Is Saying?

    The author's relating of his entering this country as a young boy and learning to read his school mates and teachers body language sets the stage for the following explanations.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Change Readers!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book relates excellent methods....all parts are good.

    "Have the PDF near you"

    Navarro’s explanations are comprehensive and he links theoretical information with very practical examples, which make the listening very agreeable. Remember to have the PDF with many pictures near you when you listen to the book, since they take your understanding to a much more concrete level.

    I will listen to it again to catch the things I missed.

    I watch more closely for body language in the people I meet and in strangers I observe.

    What did you learn from What Every BODY Is Saying that you would use in your daily life?

    The book does an excellent job explaining how to speed-read people, so I have found myself doing this without even trying now. Very intriguing!

    "Great read and it works"
    Would you listen to What Every BODY Is Saying again? Why?

    I am definitely going to listen to the book again. After finishing the book I am more aware of my body language and the messages I am sending non-verbally. I also have observed the behaviors as described in the book in waiting rooms etc. It was incredible to see what I had listened to come alive before me.

    "Interesting listen- I did it twice!"
    Would you listen to What Every BODY Is Saying again? Why?

    Sure- it's informative. Packed with little hints, it's easy to forget some cues and worth revisiting to remember details.


    What does Paul Costanzo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's a good narrator, good voice and tone for instructive writing


    Any additional comments?

    I was wondering what the pictures look like that are referred to in the narration. It's not a total loss to not have the pictures- as the description is very good.

    Would you listen to What Every BODY Is Saying again? Why?

    I would absolutely listen to this book again! I look forward to using it as a reference, because I don't think you can learn all the information in just one listen. As a crisis counselor for disasters, I will be putting the information from this book to good use to facilitate my understanding of non-verbal cues during conversation.

    "Excellent"

    I thought this might struggle as an audio book but it does work. There is a lot about the reasons behind body language which enabled the author to clump body language in to bite sized chunks to make it digestable.

    "Sensible and well balanced."

    Unlike some books on the subject, this author is very clear that there is no 'Pinnochio effect' which is to say you cannot see a gesture and declare someone is lying. What does happen is that we give off signals of stress or comfort, and reading these signals is very easy and rewarding if you are in a business meeting. His years of experience in the FBI and as a trainer are often included and fascinating in illustrating the book.

    The things he says and the way he describes them are easy to understand and actually laughable when you notice for yourself or at someone else. I think this book is quite comprehensive to satisfy my interest at speed reading people for personal life and business.

    "Great story poorly told"

    This is a really good book and gives you a lot of insight into body language - you start noticing things that you wouldn't have previously - the story is very drawn out though and it is not helped by the narrator of the audiobook who speaks in a dull, monotonous tone. If you are able to get past that the book is well worth listening to.

    "Amazingly interesting and ultimately life changing"

    I have been enjoying a spate of non-fiction and decided to try this book. It is excellently written and very informative and has already made me look at myself and my posturing. Its amazing how much you give away with body language.

    The best part of the book is the discussion on deception which blows a large hole in the premise of the TV show "Lie to me" which is utter nonesene as with most myths about falsehood and detection.

    Highly recommeded.

    "Wonderful"

    This book is full of wisdom and insight. Joe Navarro doesn't simply provide his (expert) opinion but explains the mechanisms behind body movement and the types of movement which reveal hidden emotions. This is not another book on Body Language, this is a book about the interaction between the brain and the body and how to read body movement to gain insight into the concealed emotions of an individual. A fantastic listen.

    This was a great listen, full of well-explained non-verbal clues that people exhibit involuntarily, due the limbic brain's natural responses to certain situations. Highly recommended!

    "Listened Once - need to listen a few more times"

    Much along the lines of another reviewers comments, I'm sure the narration could have been tightened a little though, the writing style of the author is very much 'why use one word when you can use 10'.



    That being said, I thought the content was very interesting and useful in both a business and personal context.



    Will have to listen to it a few more times yet before I'll start using the tools and tricks in earnest.



    Sat in a meeting today feeling myself doing some of the things mentioned herein, the things that I could or should have been gaining from their faces rather than portraying in mine. Nonetheless, shows that the content has stuck in mind and therefore value cleaned from the 7 or so hours this book took.

    A nicely laid out book with some really interesting points. Joe's years of experience really come through, especially as he freely admits even he can still get it wrong!



    He's like a real Cal Lightman (Lie to Me) and gives some very useful tips to interpret body language.
