Pretty fascinating book. I'm pretty good at reading other peoples non-verbal cues but HORRIBLE at realizing what my own are. I'm sure I'm the most expressive person ever and I'm sure my body language betrays me all the time. Reading this book just helped me understand why we act and move the way we do even though we're not even aware we're doing it. Each chapter breaks down a different section of the body and how to speed read someone's mood, tell if they're lying, nervous, happy, or uncomfortable based off subtle body movements. I learned the most on the section about feet, they're one of the most expressive parts of your body and also one of the most overlooked. Feet placement can be very indicative of a person's true emotions. Overall an interesting and enlightening read; full of information that I've already started putting to use. ( )

Excellent book about how to read body language.

Key takeaways:

- The most telling part of someone's body is actually their feet. Most people don't pay attention to this. Raising feet means wanting to give more strength to an expression. Crossing or anchoring means wanting to protect.

- Men make themselves big them trying to assert themselves.

- Closed posture indicates weakness and defensiveness.

- Women touch neck area when nervous or attacked.

- Touching nose often sign of being unsure.

- We make micro-movements, particularly in our face, that tell how we truly feel about things.

- Closed arms as sign of defensiveness.

- Important to never read these as given truths. Process should be: read someone's default body language, then look for deviating responses to particular cues. ( )

I suppose some people are masters of body language already, or have learned this stuff so long ago that it seems like common-sense to them, but I'm enjoying it and also feeling like I'm learning something. You'd have to read it yourself to know if there's anything you don't already know.

I'm sure people who are socially awkward would benefit from this, whether or not they have Asperger's or are neuro-typical. And should I ever again find myself in a position to need this kind of advice, I will definitely seek this book out. If you're in the dating pool, having trouble with your teens, trying to succeed at job interviews, or otherwise need to communicate using non-verbals as well as words, especially with someone whose complete honesty you are unsure of, I recommend this.

I enjoyed reading it even though I have no immediate need of it. Navarro's amiable and lucid explanatory tone is pleasing, the photos are clear, and the examples illuminating. I also appreciate that the book is well-organized and includes bibliography and index. I just hope bad guys don't study it. ( )
