Overview

Ever wonder what that raised eyebrow, nervous twitch, or lazy slouch really means? Is it profound and important...or a meaningless quirk?

In The Body Language Handbook, the authors use candid photos of real people in stress-free situations, then juxtapose them against others showing the same people responding to different kinds of stimulus to illustrate the power of body language. By going step-by-step from the holistic to the detailed, you'll quickly discover when body language indicates something significant, and when an itch is just an itch. You'll learn how to:

• Identify the basic mechanics of human communication.
• Read changes in body language.
• Avoid misunderstandings.
• Project the right message.
• Protect yourself from manipulation.

The Body Language Handbook will not only teach you how to read the body language of others, it will also make sure you send the signals you want to send. Increase your power of communication at the office, in a courtroom or classroom, at home, and in any social setting-even the poker table!

    I Can't See You on the Phone

    My College Girl called me just a lil while ago. And do you know what? I can not see through the phone! Can you? Didn't think so either. Should have video phones not just video chat online.

    You see I asked her to pop home for a few hours to help me out around the house. I have tons and tons of rearranging to still do. I have a surprise next month and I am trying to get ready for it. But in the mean time work to be done. Anyway, the thing is that I can not read my CG's body language over the phone.

    CG is pretty quite when it comes to phone calls. I find that I use her body language to help me know what she is thinking and feeling. If you do not do this then I would be surprised. As a matter of fact, til I read "Body Language Handbook" I was unaware how much I relied on reading other people. This was written by the same authors that did "How to Spot a Liar" Wow, we all want that book! I learned how to:

    * Identify the basic mechanics of human communication.
    * Observe what is culturally normal.and when determine "abnormal" matters.
    * Read changes in body language.
    * Avoid misunderstandings.
    * Project the right message.
    * Protect yourself from manipulation.

    I think I will have CG read this book. There was some great ideas on how to position yourself for others to read confidence and strength. And with her in theater I am sure that body language is something we all see on stage. Gregory Hartley and Maryann Karinch along with Newman Communications, Inc. was so kind as to send me this book. It is great to learn new things each week. Now let's see what I read when Dear Hubby comes home tonight. Does he really want to go bowling with the folks or would he much rather crawl in bed and rest on his only evening free?
