Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn how to read people? Do you want to walk into a room and instantly have a good idea of what the people around you are really thinking? Read on...

In How to Read People like a Book, we will go deep into exploring body language - not just to understand people, but to also connect with them. After all, why do we find the need to interpret and understand what people say and do? Because, we want to connect with them, create relationships, and be part of a community. How to Read People like a Book will teach you to better understand people through verbal and nonverbal reading skills, thereby allowing you to better function as a part of a growing community.

Here are some of the things you will discover:

  • Ways how exactly will reading body language help you, and how accurate is it really (The myths and facts, so you’ll know exactly what to look for going in)
  • Different personality types and how they affect behavior (Not everyone has the same mannerisms, gestures, and characteristics when outside. You will become aware of the existence of these different personality types in order to adjust to their various temperaments.)
  • The differences between an extrovert and an introvert (The basic personality characterizations that you need to know about and that will predict how you can best communicate with these people)
  • The different communication styles and what should you be using in different settings (Remember, you always want to create just the right amount of impression when meeting someone, whether new or old.)
  • The secret factors that motivates people into doing things   
  • And much more!

Being connected with people and forging strong friendships is one of the hallmarks of a successful life. This book will show you how to be able to grab life by the horns and achieve your full potential when it comes to people and forging friendships and social ties that will last for a lifetime!

did not find interesting

I bought this book hoping for tips and hacks on social communication. I ended up fast forwarding through most of this book until I eventually gave up. It is a general and monotonous repetition of different personality types, could easily have found information online in a few minutes.

Poorly written/ not that useful

Very poorly written in the sense that it looks like it was written as a high school essay.
It did have some useful information, but most of it was so vague or fluffed that the majority of the material is worthless.

A must listen!

In a `down-to-earth' manner, including clear illustrations, "How to Read an individual sort of a Book" explains how you'll interpret verbal and non-verbal, also as subtle and non-so-subtle communication styles.Having been in sales and sales training, I'd list this as needed reading. Had I discovered "How to Read an individual sort of a Book" already , i might have benefited enormously.

Helpful and Extremely Clear!

This book is extremely reasonable, concise and clear. i prefer the very fact that the author begins by saying that none of those physical signs are undisputably written in stone. He takes under consideration cultural differences, peoples upbringing and therefore the like. However, take care . you would possibly begin seeing/hearing quite you would like to about what's being said in conversations.
