Body Language: How Our Movements and Posture Reveal Our Secret Selves (Revised and Updated)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Body Language helps you to understand the unconscious body movements and postures that provide intimate keys to what a person is really thinking and the secrets of their true inner selves. You will learn how to read the angle of shoulders, the tilt of a head, or the tap of a foot, in order to discern whether an individual is angry, frightened or cheerful.

The body is not able to lie, for it sends subtle signals to those who know how to read them. Body Language will even show you how to do it without others knowing you are observing them.

difference, an observer of one nationality may see things in body language that are completely missed by someone of a different nationality. The above description, open eyes with a medial brow contraction, pinched nostrils and a mouth in repose, would be the same to an American as the one below.
