This book is an excellent read. The book was simple enough for a beginner like me, but packet full of usefull examples and illustrations for all of the body language ques covered. There is no doubt that this book will change how you interact with friends or strangers. You will be able to pick up on a lot of things that normally would go unnoticed by most people, but I would not recommend letting anyone borrow this book because they won't return it. Seriously I let my friend borrow it and I haven't seen it in a month. It's that good.

I bought this book because I wanted to be able to read people's body language and learn a little on neuro-linguistics. The book is very interesting and is a good base for beginners. The chapters are well sequenced, are set up so that you can start at any chapter you wish and not miss out on information, and cover a wide range of information. The book is an easy read with a simple vocabulary which is good. I'd say some of the information is obvious, but what the book does a good job of doing is making you aware of what the mind and body are doing. The last chapter is an excellent sort of test-summary, meaning that it shows a picture and asks what are the 5-12 gestures and feelings that are shown, and right underneath is the description nicely presented. All in all it is a great book that I would definitely recommend especially for those who are just beginning. I think there were 1 or 2 descriptions that do not apply to the present but it happens, I believe the book was written by a British husband and wife so there can be some nuances but he points out that in America you have to do this and that. I was hoping for a more indepth book but this was an excellent beginners book.

Body language is the key to first encounters. We all send secret signals and cues with our gestures and stances, sometimes even when we aren't aware we're doing so. But knowing what this 'body lingo' means is not easy for most of us, this nonverbal communication requires working in a language that's hard to understand. In The Definitive Book of Body Language, the authors pull from three decades of professional experience to teach a basic vocabulary of our expressions and gestures, in order for anyone to learn and understand them. Another book that has been a huge help to me in reading other people and understanding unspoken cues is The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book. It's also great because it comes with a code that lets you go online and test your emotional intelligence!

Hands down the best body language book in circulation! Covers everything and explains the science behind it. The authors are extremely knowledgeable and offers great practical information. I have read many, many BL books, and this is truly the gem of them all. MUST READ!

Extraordinary This is highly detailed. Highly literal desciption of images. Body language is essential for all forms of human contact. Any who seek to de-mystify the non-verbal meaning of those around you, this your book. Whether a reader is new to Body Language, or seeking deeper knowledge. Hands, arms, feet, legs, even eyes. All documented and explained.

You can read it from cover to cover, but it's also great to just pick up and read a section at random. It's very entertaining, yet you learn a lot about how to read people and how to be conscious about your own actions.

Before reading this book, I had no knowledge of reading body language, but while reading this book (as I still am) I have started to pick up on different body signals on people that am helping me understand how other people's actions speak louder than words. 5 stars, definately.
