Publisher's Summary

Instantly discover what's really going on around you!
Know the truth before you ever hear a word!
Approximately 80% of communication is expressed nonverbally. When you know how to unlock the secrets of people's nonverbal cues, you'll always have the upper hand in any situation.
In The Power of Body Language, former FBI counterintelligence officer and recognized global expert on nonverbal behavior Joe Navarro teaches you how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for revealing behaviors. You will discover:


How the subconscious limbic system drives all body language.
Why the face is the least likely place to gauge a person's true feelings.
What thumbs, feet, and a simple handshake reveal about moods and motives.
The most powerful behaviors that reveal our confidence and true sentiments.
Simple nonverbals that instantly establish trust and communicate authority.
Why things taught about nonverbals in the '70s and '80s are incorrect.
And more!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

There are a few friends that i think would find this interesting but i think the majority would find it tedious. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in body language.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Well I definitely wasn't surprised by the ending. It’s not like it turned out the author was lying the whole way through. Like all non-fiction books the endings are usually quite obvious.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrators voice started to grate on me after a while and i needed to take frequent breaks. His voice did make it difficult to listen to.


Could you see The Power of Body Language being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No


Any additional comments?

Overall the content was very interesting and insightful. I have noticed i have started actively observing people a lot more and trying to spot the meanings behind their movements. It’s also interesting to spot my own pacifying behaviour and note when and why i am doing it. I enjoyed the author’s anecdotal explanations of his work with the FBI which helped to add credibility to what he is conveying. The only thing that let the audiobook down was the author’s narration. I understand why he has decided to narrate his own book but sadly his voice was not engaging and i found him very difficult to listen to. The content of the book however outweighed the narration so on the whole i enjoyed this audiobook.

full of examples

he twas eaching something visual-body language- but it was well explained so I had no problem imagining what he was saying.

I am mildly interested or suspicious rather as to why a former FBI agent was allowed to reveal these tips. Did he tell the whole truth? half truth?

In any case, plenty of good tips were imparted and I would highly recommend.
