It is sub-titled 'How to Read Others' Attitudes by Their Gestures' and has been described as a seminal text by the foremost experts on body language. They draw on research from evolutionary biology, psychology and medical technologies and examine the brain's interaction with the body. This understanding of basic vocabulary will enable you to read others' attitudes and emotions. You will learn how to make a positive impression on others, how to interview and negotiate successfully, know if someone is available or if someone is lying, recognise love signs and power-plays, read between the lines of what is said, bond quickly and get others to cooperate and make yourself likeable and approachable. A ground-breaking book which will give you confidence and control in any situation, filled with fascinating insights. There are diagrams and pictures like peering-over-the-glasses which intimidates everyone, common gestures like men spreading their legs, or sitting back hands behind their heads taking control, country verses city spatial zones, how to avoid being attacked or abused, the sideways glance, hand and thumb gestures going right back to the times of Napoleon, the power of touch, laughing till you cry, how jokes work, why smiling is contagious, the hand shake, and how an airport is a particularly good place for observing the entire spectrum of human gestures as people openly express eagerness, anger, sorrow, happiness, impatience and many other emotions through body language. Utterly fascinating, 392pp, illus.
