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.

    "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.

    "good, but . . . ."
    What did you like best about What Every BODY Is Saying? What did you like least?

    Hoping that I would be able to understand more about people based upon their microexpressions and mannerisms than just their words, I was pleased to find a book that could teach me some of these skills. I am sure the content of the book was enhanced by the illustrations that were frequently used and referenced. Listening only in audio format, although generally helpful, was limiting.


    Would you recommend What Every BODY Is Saying to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend buying the book because there are so many references to the illustrations that after awhile I was sure I could not have learned the same content using an audio book as the visual learning available through the text itself. Buy the Book not the Audio book.

    "Interesting"
    What did you like best about What Every BODY Is Saying? What did you like least?

    The content of this book is very informative and does a good job of explaining the type of behavior someone should learn to watch both in themselves and others. I appreciated the experience and effort the author brought to the reader.<br/>The narration had an odd cadence and was surprisingly stilted and dry. I actually had to force myself to listen to it at times.


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

    The anecdotes were very interesting, or at least promised to be, but were frequently left vague or lacking as much detail as one might expect.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Costanzo?

    No idea.


    Do you think What Every BODY Is Saying needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I think the author shared the majority of his information.

    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.

    "Great Tips!"
    Would you listen to What Every BODY Is Saying again? Why?

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


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

    I have so little time to read, so the fact this book is audible is so helpful.


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

    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!
