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.

    "Very useful information"

    As a teacher I've relied often on Body language to read the tone of my class, my students and how the message is being received. This book confirmed a lot of what I already knew and expanded my intuition on what I was reading in people.

    Very informative. Writer reminds us too many times that he was in the FBI... ok... we get it. But if you can look past this, it's a wonderful audiobook and the supplemental PDF is wonderful.

    HIghly recommend if you are in social, retail, education or executive positions.

    "Excellent resource for anyone who must hire staff"

    The information is timeless. There is enough information that listening for a second time would not be boring just more enlightening.

    "A must listen"

    The information in this book is invaluable. However simple...it can change how you view interactions on every level of your life. Just knowing someones intentions (agression, bordom etc) when you are talking to them, how their words are different from their thoughts, is hugely helpful. It can help you guide a conversation in the direction you want it to go in and know when one is over...if you want it to be or not.
    More that a study on mirroring (which can be really creepy when done on purpose) it goes through all kinds of body language communications that will help you no matter where you apply them.
    Has my recommendation.

    "Not very encouraging information by the author"
    Would you try another book from Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins and/or Paul Costanzo?

    Well it seems that the information in this book only leads to a 50% reliability rate by the author


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Disappointing


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    More inflection and a desire of excitement concerning the content and subject.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO

    "Facinating and immediately applicable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would and have. One key point he makes is that there are certain signals that can clue you in that something MAY be amiss. No one and nothing is a true polygraph, even a polygraph. But it definitely gives you hint on how to be tipped off, especially by tuning into non-verbal clues. An easy way I have found to practice this is to watch tv commercials with the sound off, suddenly you can really pick up on all the subconscious messaging going on!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The toughest thing about this book is the narrator's style. Each line is read tortuously slow and precise. Great if you are trying to catch everyword of a sentence, but really annoying if you are listening to a whole book! The really great thing about the Kindle Fire is that I could just increase the reading speed. I set it at 150% and then it was much better. If I had thought to do that right away I would have been much better off. So before you elect not to buy based on this comment, allow me to reiterate that just speeding up the replay made it fine to listen to. In fact, the narrators clear and precise style allowed it to be sped up without any loss of clarity.

    "Straightforward content"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the book. Picked up a few hints. But overall was more distracted by the narrators strained attempts to speak slowing and to overly enunciate.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I felt as though the narrator thought he was speaking to a half-deaf child.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    TV show, yes... I have... it was called Lie To Me.

    "Interesting information"
    Would you try another book from Joe Navarro and Marvin Karlins and/or Paul Costanzo?

    I can't imagine I would have a desire to read/listed to another book by this author, which is not to say that this one was not interesting or well written.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Costanzo?

    This narrator was not my favorite. His monotone made it very hard to maintain my focus.


    What did you take away from What Every BODY Is Saying that you can apply to your work?

    I find myself more aware of people's limbic responses.

    "What every "body" is saying has already been said"

    This was not my fave book- not my fave author. He makes a few good points but I was expecting grandeur and new information, not stuff that you can learn from watching jury trials on tv. My feet are pointed to the door as I am walking away and not looking back at this novel any more.

    "Great information"

    This is a great book about body language. I have read several, but this one is the most believable and accurate. The information is balanced, delivered in a logical sequence and the reading is done well too. This one is well worth your time to listen too. I plan to listen to it again.
