    Excellent beginners book for body language

    I bought this book because I wanted to be able to read people's body language and learn a little on neuro-linguistics. The book is very interesting and is a good base for beginners. The chapters are well sequenced, are set up so that you can start at any chapter you wish and not miss out on information, and cover a wide range of information. The book is an easy read with a simple vocabulary which is good. I'd say some of the information is obvious, but what the book does a good job of doing is making you aware of what the mind and body are doing. The last chapter is an excellent sort of test-summary, meaning that it shows a picture and asks what are the 5-12 gestures and feelings that are shown, and right underneath is the description nicely presented. All in all it is a great book that I would definitely recommend especially for those who are just beginning. I think there were 1 or 2 descriptions that do not apply to the present but it happens, I believe the book was written by a British husband and wife so there can be some nuances but he points out that in America you have to do this and that. I was hoping for a more indepth book but this was an excellent beginners book.

    Interesting analysis

    One of the better relationship books I bought recently for added insight into interacting with women. This one is very interesting to say the least. Barbara provides very detailed information and analysis on the gestures, head nods, postures and stances accompanied by illustrations to explain body language quickly. Some of it is pure psychological speculation, but it would certainly be extremely beneficial in any sales career, being able to effectively recognize and decode the nonverbal messages of others. For male pickup advice, I'd couple this book with a rather funny and cynical title, The Professional Bachelor Dating Guide - How to Exploit Her Inner Psycho to enhance your seduction skills via reading and influencing women.
