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.

    "JUST FOR COPS AND AGENTS"
    Would you try another book from Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins and/or Paul Costanzo?

    I downoloaded this book because I fought it focus in human behaivor, but it is only about FBI agents stuff, more chronicles of an agent life tha a real learning book, I don{t recommend it.

    "Just ok"

    I was really looking forward to this book, unfortunately my expectations were not met. There were certainly some body language myths which he dispelled, and I did learn of a couple body language keys that I didn't know.

    Honestly it was just ok, I found myself spacing out then coming back and rather than rewind to see what I missed just pushed through to the end.

    "body language"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one that I know of.


    Has What Every BODY Is Saying turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes


    What didn’t you like about Paul Costanzo’s performance?

    He stated off strong but then sounded like I felt...exactly where is the substance in this book? His voice sounded strained.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The handout was informative


    Any additional comments?

    You cannot depend on the brief descriptions given with the books. Rule of thumb: if by the third chapter the book has not grabbed your attention, send it back.

    "Basic body language info, confirms intuition..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I've had my mind blown by books like The Sociopath Next Door and The Gift Of Fear and imagined this book would be similarly perspective-altering. It was perfectly listenable but mostly confirmed body language queues that your intuition already flags.

    Perhaps if I worked in a field where such interpretation is pressing, law enforcement or high school principal ;-), I'd have been more affected.

    Strangely, though the book is competently narrated there were portions that sounded robotic. Not as an adjective, but literally.


    What was most disappointing about Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins ’s story?

    No narrative threads to make the technical information come alive. A bit abstract and difficult to follow without the PDF showing the physical behavior. Not an ideal candidate for an audiobook, in my opinion.


    Any additional comments?

    There are other titles in the genre you're likely to find more colorful and engaging.

    "Fascinating"

    As a comic book artist creating expressive characters for years I've been continually interested in body language. This was really interesting to learn some really concrete meaning behind the gestures people make.

    "Good Listen"
    What did you love best about What Every BODY Is Saying?

    This book made me more aware of people's body language in all settings.


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

    While listening to the chapter that discussed genital framing, I noticed an individual displaying this behavior.
    I also noticed how individuals either had their thumbs in or out of their pockets.
    When I observed both behaviors, I just smiled. It was now so obvious.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Costanzo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

    "don't bother"

    The information discussed in this book is so "common knowledge". While listening to it, I kept wanting to say out loud: "Well, DAH!"

    I am a web professional who loves reading but life doesn't afford enough time if you are living at the speed of the internet. Audio books were my salvation. I love Science Fiction first and foremost, then Fantasy, and then anything else I can find that sounds interesting.

    "Exactly what I expected it to be"

    After reading some of the reviews I expected a so-so performance with excellent information. I was surprised at how often I kept going back to listen after I took a break from the monotonous voice though - that usually isn't like me. Once I leave an audio book, it is generally for good.

    The information is useful and the author uses real examples when possible to explain his points.

    I'm not sure what they could have done with the narrator they used but I really liked the book.
