You Don't Say: Navigating Nonverbal Communication Between the Sexes

Overview

More than words, it's nonverbal cues that have the power to improve-or impair-our interactions with the opposite sex at home and in the workplace.

You Don't Say is the first book to explore the misunderstandings that often arise between the sexes due to nonverbal communication-and to show readers how to say what they mean and get what they want. At last, they'll discover why ...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Nelson heads her own communications consulting group and might boil her extensive experience down to a single maxim: "gender role transcendence is the key to successful communication." Writing with Golant (In the Company of Women), she examines the nonverbal styles of men and women, and explores ways that they can learn to pick up on, and use, each other's prevalent cues. Citing studies and anecdotes, Nelson notes that although some differences are biologically determined, most are based on the socialization process that children are exposed to in the home and at school. She shows how feelings and signifiers of social power get mapped onto eyes, faces and touch. Nelson's practical suggestions are geared toward the business world. She advises men against too frequent use of the "poker face," and counsels tuning into the other person and "mirroring" their emotions, a skill that conveys empathy and that women more frequently employ. Among much else, there is advice for women on the fine points of a conventional handshake, with the full palm and firm grasp that men often expect. Clear and concise throughout, Nelson also provides useful information on cross-cultural differences in nonverbal communication, such as the Japanese tradition of lowering the eyes to indicate respect.

    Can YOU hear me?

    WOW! This book was very interesting. I never knew that nonverbal cues differed between the sexes and how important it is to understand those differences. After reading this book, I was able to apply a lot of rules and suggestions when communicating with someone of the opposite sex. This book goes far beyond the concept that 'women are from Venus and men are from Mars'. Nelson has opened my eyes to a lot of things that I thought was normal and helped me understand why women do things far different from men. This book has helped me not only within me relationship with my husband but has played a tremendous role on my job.
