Overview

Crime Signals helps you stop crime before it starts. David Givens, one of the nation's foremost experts in nonverbal communication, offers a fascinating and instructive look at crime, and into the tell-tale signs that give away all offenders—if you're trained to see them.

From the signals of a swindler to the warning signs that experts use to help thwart terrorism and violent crime, this book breaks down a criminal's body language into clear recognizable symbols:

• What does it mean if an assailant's face turns suddenly pale?

• Is a pat on the arm from a salesman a sign of sincerity, or an indication that you're about to get scammed?

• Does a liar make fewer hand gestures while they're lying—or more?

• If an aggressor shrugs his shoulders, should you be afraid?

This is the first book to offer a comprehensive guide to the body language of criminals. With amazing stories and instructive steps, it will change the way you view the world.
