Overview

The body never lies. A tilt of the head, a crossing or uncrossing of the legs, even the buttoning or unbuttoning of a jacket, can speak pages about what a person is thinking or feeling about his or her immediate surroundings and situation. More importantly, it can tell a great deal about how one person is reacting to another. To be able to respond to them in the manner one chooses, is the art at the center of this provocative book.

How to Read a Person Like a Book is an illustrated guide to how to spot the hidden messages that we send to each other with our bodies. These messages may be emotional, sexual, or social. They may be positive or negative. They may occur during business meetings, parties, or chance encounters. They may be between members of the opposite sex, or members of the same sex- whether friend, foe, or total stranger.

The ability to decipher the unspoken vocabulary outlined in this book should increase the reader's capacity to influence the outcome of almost any situation. The authors, both experts in the field of people-watching, are convinced that by reading this book anyone can learn not only how to interpret nonverbal behavior, but also how to respond appropriately once the nature of that behavior is revealed. They welcome their readers to explore the silent but eloquent world of body language, and to attain the power to improve their control over situations they encounter every day.

I was an unemployed Artist with a GED. The only tools I took to an interview were a photo albumn of Me on the cover% and a silly letter my son had given me of a super woman with a myriad of talents,The owner of the company had all the mannerisms of a boss, the steepled hands for confidence,the leaning forward, all body lanquage that told me everything I needed to know. This book is right on target. I could have gone in wrapped in a sheet. I got the JOB.Now I will finish reading the book to complete the JOB. Thanks Pati Tilemuralist from Central Florida
