Learning is acquired by reading books, but the much more necessary learning, the knowledge of the world, is only to be acquired by reading men, and studying all the various editions of them. --Lord Chesterfield, "Letters to His Son"
To Juliet and Barbara
An airport is an excellent spot for viewing the entire human emotional spectrum.
A long pump handle not only provides a mechanical advantage but also permits two people to work together on the handle.
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 reacts to another. To be able to recognize the meaning of these cues and 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 on learning how to spot the hidden messages that we send to each other with our bodies.
