about this book

Available for the first time in the United States, this international bestseller reveals the secrets of nonverbal communication in a straightforward and accessible manner.

It is a scientific fact that people’s gestures give away their true intentions. Yet most people don’t know how to read body language–and don’t realize how their own physical movements speak to others. Now the world’s foremost experts on the subject share their techniques for reading body language signals to achieve success in every area of life.

Drawing upon more than thirty years in the field, as well as cutting-edge research from evolutionary biology, psychology, and medical technologies that demonstrate what happens in the brain, the authors examine each component of body language and give students the basic vocabulary to read attitudes and emotions through behavior.

Filled with fascinating insights, humorous observations, and simple strategies that can apply to any situation, this intriguing book will help students to communicate with and understand others–as well as themselves. Indispensable for students of business, psychology, and sociology.
