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.

    "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.

    "Very Informative and well presented"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If human nature interests you, if you work with others, or if you are often taken advantage of, this listen has something to teach you.

    "Understanding what people aren't saying"
    What did you learn from What Every BODY Is Saying that you would use in your daily life?

    It is hard to hold a conversation with anyone now without watching their movements and trying to understand what they are saying without speaking it.


    Any additional comments?

    I will never look at anyone the same way again without that little voice in my brain sizing everything up.

    "Good book but missing referenced PDF."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This audiobook is well written and well performed. One does come across references in the audio version that references a table of illustrations representing what one should look for. Descriptions used are passable enough not to need them but it causes questions as to what the audience might be missing.


    Any additional comments?

    Contextually useful. Would be fun to listen to a continuation of thought by how to approach different situations to provoke the nonverbal language. Would rate it higher if I could see PDF.

    "Interesting information"
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Every BODY Is Saying to be better than the print version?

    Only heard the audio version, but there were many references to descriptive pictures in the book and those would have helped.
