What Every BODY is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People

by Joe Navarro Author and Marvin Karlins Author

What you say is often far less important than how you say it. One of the harbingers of success in business and life is understanding how nonverbal cues such as body language, dress, and demeanor affect how you are perceived and understood. In this book, a former counterintelligence officer specializing in behavioral analysis, and one of the leaders in nonverbal behaviors, demonstrates how to modify your subconscious statements to your greatest advantage and also read what other people are “saying” nonverbally. These skills will increase your ability to accurately assess moods, decode behaviors, anticipate problems, avoid hidden pitfalls, influence negotiations, and understand the secret motivations of those around you.
