Body Language: The Signals You Don't Know You're Sending, and How to Master Them by Glenn Wilson

From interviews to dates, the boardroom to the stage, being aware of the non-verbal signals you, and others, send can have a huge impact on your relationships and success in life — for better or worse. You convey your intentions through body language — whether you're aware of them or not. By understanding body language, you can take control of the unspoken signals you give to others. Learn how to make a better impression to:

Succeed in interviews
Make better presentations and lead with authority
Meet new people and go on dates with confidence
Be more compassionate by appreciating others body language
Know when others are lying to you
Understand what your beard/ piercings/ make-up might be saying about you
Develop awareness of cross-cultural differences and similarities in body language
Understand the message that your appearance sends

This fun and friendly guide will show you how to ‘read’ the body language of others, and how to project the right signals, so you can manage the impression you give to others. Full of real-world and pop-cultural examples, practical tips and strategies, and underpinned by principles from psychological and social experiments, you’ll learn how to use and interpret non-verbal messages to put your best face, and body, forward.
