Publisher's Summary

People will make their mind about you in a matter of seconds.

Did you know your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you? Do you sometimes feel socially awkward around new people because you can’t really tell what their gestures are saying or what your own gestures are saying?

When we talk, we say very little because it's our body that does the real talking! We express so much more subconsciously through our physical behavior, body posture, gestures, eye movement, facial expressions, touch, and the use of space. So why not learn how to use this to your advantage? Or just take time to listen because it is very interesting.

This book has the ability to totally change your life. You will learn what body language signs you should look for when you want to know whether the person who is talking to you is telling the truth or is trying to con you. It will always give you that edge, so you can adjust your game plan to steer things in the direction you want!

Highly recommended!!!

I found particularly interesting the parts where the author explains how the same gestures are differently perceived in different cultures. Another useful part is reading the body language of your baby, which I must admit, didn't know much of. I would recommend this book to anyone because this book can really help you improve your communication not only in your professional life but also in your personal relationships.

Book will empower you to be your best!

I use the tools I learned from this book in my personal life as well as in my professional life. I now pride myself as being a Master Negotiator in Training. I am constantly amazing myself what I can negotiate for myself just by paying more attention to body language. It's a skill that we must all improve and this book does the trick.

Amazing book!!

always been interested in how we act and send certain signals through body language so what better way than to have a read of a more in depth analysis of it. The author did a great job of highlighting all the little intricacies involved in body language and i particularly liked the 'do's and don'ts' in chapter three. Not sure what all the other reviews are about that mention typos.

Amazing insight

I enjoyed this book it gave me some insight on some communication things I already knew but overall the book gave me some great insight in nonverbal communication cues. Also just gave me some awareness on how my body language is interrupted at all times and to be aware because it may reveal things but also confuse people and make you unapproachable

Good but not Great

Good information and reminders for people in sales, especially those new to the profession. Although those who have been in the game much longer and are serious students of their craft a lot of the information will be already known. The book is worth it if you have no knowledge about how to read people at all. If you do have knowledge about non verbal communication I would pass.

great book.

This is a very informative book — all of the information easy to understand. I am reading this book then I have got lots of confidence. In this book, you will discover the different types of body language cues and how to read them, and how to best communicate with each of the four main personality types using this information we obtained.

Body language explained!!!!

it is easy to understand the theoretical aspect of body language, but trying to apply all that you learned about it in real life situations.. Well, it's safe to say its hard as hell. And that's why I'm impressed by the author. Somehow he managed to bring this topic to all of us in a manner that's so reader-friendly, which is quite difficult.

Extraordinary Book!

This is a very enlightening read. One of the better writings that I have read. Things that you would normally not even pay attention to when communicating with others, that show what others are "really" thinking.

A cut above the rest.

This book is awesome, anyone that deals with the public and/or co workers need this book.
I would differently recommend this book to anyone.This book goes into a lot of business details but, it is also great for individual use.One of the best purchases I have made book wise. good book ever for body language. The gestures that may indicate lying and deception is intriguing and seems helpful in knowing if that someone is telling the truth or not. Nice book! You can really get some great tips on this book. best book.

great character development.

I really liked the way the author broke down the elements and illuminated the supportive data of each topic area! Book is hard to put down as he applies each topic into scenarios because it certainly relates you into them and makes you think and become more self aware of your own body language. it covered all aspects of body language and each meaning. helped developed body language and dynamics enabling one yo go out and apply the knowledge. very good i recommended this book. i love this book.

Exellent book for body language.

A good introduction to the study of body language. This book has helped me identify when a friend or customer is feeling nervous, or hiding something.

Fast takes this unknown language and reveals to the common man that, indeed understanding body language is crucial to understanding the human being and Although dated, the knowledge purported by the author is sound and informative.

fabulous book for Body Language

My friends and I always talk a little, but our bodies do the real talking when talking about others - we have fun doing that. This book taught me what body language really is and how you do it right. I learned how to improve my relationships with friends and family for stronger connection.Education in body language is a must especially when you are in sales. This is an excellent book. Very realitic. All their assumes in excercise seem to be true in real life. The first time one of the techniques pays off for you, like me you'll be on here writing a review. Mr Phipps you have opened my eyes, all I can say is!!

A way for book-smart people to understand.

I took a college course on reading body language, and this excellent book covered the same ground. It's not what you say, but it's how you say it that counts most. Author conveys a broad knowledge of the subject. Additionally, a gifted writer who writes clearly and in depth. Book is well organized into meaningful snippets easily absorbed. Very informative! This will help me to better understand other people’s body language. It will also make me more aware of the body language I present to others.

The book that saved me.

This is really quit a necessary book. I think this book should be given to every teenager in highschool because it is so informal and insightful of what to watch for in another person. This is my first body language book and it makes me want to read others as well. I recommend it. I truly enjoyed this book. At a young age I, also, learned how to read body language (due to my hearing impairment). I bought this book because I was curious to see what was in it!

Total trash

This abhorrent book is appalling. Only read if you would like to be brainwashed by the patriarchy. How does this trash still exist in 2020?
