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!

Insightful

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.

Powerfull, Thoughtfull and eye opening

Would you listen to The Power of Body Language again? Why?

Yes, there is to much in this book that can be easily forgotten.

His book is insightful, old movies like Ocean eleven would have you believe you can tell if someone is lying if the person looks up left or right. What you take from his book is you can't tell what they are thinking precisely, you can tell how people feel or what mood they are in. Which can give you que's to ask follow up questions to know why they feel the way they do.

IT helped open my eye's and made me monitor myself not so I could decisive, but to practice mindfullness. I am able to now think about some of the que's and know what I am feeling with more accuracy which helped me work through my emotions rather than be ruled by them.

If you’ve listened to books by Joe Navarro before, how does this one compare?

I have not read other books

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He was very methodical, however his tempo or reading speed made it difficult to stay interested during the technical dissection of his examples.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, there is to much to absorb in one go.

Helped me with my disabled daughter!!!!

I decided to purchase this book to help me with my disabled daughter. My daughter is severely disabled and her ability to communicate when she is in distress is limited. She has lots of conditions including autism and OCD which give her much distress. I was looking for any tools to help me recognize when she is first experiencing stress so maybe I could intervene before she goes into full blown mania. I was not disappointed! Mr. Navarro gave me some valuable tools to use in observing my daughter's behavior. The suggestions in the book have already helped me recognize early stress behaviors in my daughter.

This book also gave me tools which I am excited to start practicing when observing other people's behavior. This could be fun! ;-)

The narration of the book is in a slow, methodical speech pattern which may annoy some people. However, I found that this type of delivery helped me better process the weighty information.

Thank you, Mr. Navarro, for writing this book!!! I am about to listen to the book again.
