Overview

First impressions do count and our body is our most useful tool. Body Language is a practical guide to using this tool to achieve greater professional and social success.

Starting with the basic vocabulary of unspoken language, or “bodytalk”, the book looks at how to make initial contact with others and establish good communication. It discusses how to make an impact at social events, how to get time alone, and how to analyze what others are thinking and feeling.

This is followed by a chapter on intimate relationships, looking at what draws people together and how body language can move a relationship forward. The workplace is also analyzed and discussed—how your body language can help you succeed in your career goals and how you can appear confident, competent, and efficient before you’ve even said a word.

The final section of the book is a quick reference visual dictionary showing a variety of key gestures and signals and how they can be interpreted

I really enjoyed this book, which was the first that I had read concerning body language. It was an excellent guide to understanding people on a more intimate level. The pictures were very helpful, with only one instance of confusion concerning the people in the pictures and their situation. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to begin learning about body language.

I really enjoyed the book, I found it to be very informative on the topic of body language. I can now point out when the situation is becoming uncomfertable or when my freind really does need my help.

This proves to be another boring and hard to understand book on this subject which I have to assume requires a lot of memorization. I think that you can let it boil down to as you grow in life you will be able to interpret peoples true communication better regardless of what books like this suggest.
