Overview

Communicate all the right messages – without saying a word!

At any given moment your body is revealing more about what you're really thinking and feeling than your words ever could. Some people find this fact unnerving, but knowing how to read and control body language can be your key to success in life. Body Language For Dummies helps you become fluent in body language and to fine-tune your ability to read people and their mental states. Better yet, you can discover how to use your entire body to broadcast the right kinds of messages and to communicate more confidently, credibly, and persuasively.

  • Let your body do the talking – see how the way you move and position your body can reveal inner states and affect how people see you, and observe how your thoughts, attitudes, and perceptions affect your posture
  • Read the signs – spot lies, notice subtle expressions of aggression, fear or distrust, recognise signs of interest or rejection, and become more self-aware by observing your own body language
  • Don't stand so close to me! – understand how cultural differences can influence body language, and get wise with cross-cultural body language tips and taboos

Open the book and find:

  • Ways in which the body reveals what people really mean
  • How body language evolved and why we give the signals we do
  • Advice on using your body and expressions to improve your image
  • Ways to use body language as a tool for professional advancement
  • Tips on using body language to improve your personal relationships
  • How to move and gesture to best effect in different situations
  • Advice on taking your knowledge of body language to the next level

Learn to:

  • Understand how body language conveys much more than the words we say
  • Make a great first impression using the power of body language
  • Persuade, motivate, and inspire other people with your body language
  • Project with confidence in the workplace

I love this book because you can just start at the begining and read all the way through, and also skip around for any reason. After read just one chapter, I go to the mall or just a fast food place, and watch people just to see what I can use that I learned from the book. The answer...everything.

However clever one might be, this book could come in handy to brush up on known clues and gives of individuals. Reading this book really gave me a backbone in my readings. It was easier to form sentences to those who ask how one could know the gives and tells. My father, being a form of law enforcement, he was always reading body language and the way certain individuals said things; things with their body, hands, and eye gestures. He really found this book to be useful as much as I did. This book helped me get new students through high school and life.
