    " I found this in a box of old books at my parents' house. I read on a whim and very quickly; it's useful in learning to decipher body language, but it's not very theoretical. It identifies many prominent behaviors and provides some anecdotal/scientific/"scientific" evidence about the underlying thoughts the behavior might betray. It's worth it for the couple hours it took to read, but there have got to be better resources out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Mcmillen | 2/6/2014

    " Not bad - even if a little dated. (I especially liked the tips on pipe smoking and what it reveals!) Even if I do not buy every trick, I do find I use some of the gestures to focus on whether the person I am speaking with is receptive to what I am saying. If not, I try to re-phrase my approach. Would recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 2/5/2014

    " Loved it - great insight and examples. Really makes you consider how you are presented to other people and changes how you think about others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noha | 2/3/2014

    " An interesting audio book :) Very helpful "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa Nevin | 12/24/2013

    " Overly chatty, not really enough material for a book Be a nice 'pamphlet'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 12/17/2013

    " A very good book on how to read the human body. The social, emotional and sexual hidden messages we send to one another. Illustrations are quite helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 inoel | 11/17/2013

    " The title of this book is overrated. The only person who can get benefit from this book are character artist & animator. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy LeFevre Rice | 10/29/2013

    " Interesting but I think I probably knew all this. Good to read all in one place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rini | 10/16/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 10/5/2013

    " it's very interesting.. although there are words that i don't understand. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Henry Manampiring | 3/25/2013

    " I would suggest Pease's "Body Language" instead. This book is not as readable and funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hesty | 5/9/2012

    " compared to any of Ekman's explanation of emotion and face expression books, this one surely has a different way to illustrate the information. 'twas a fun to read though "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy Anderson | 4/19/2012

    " watching people can reveal much "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Khalid | 3/20/2012

    " Not bad, but there are many better books on the subject of body language. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nick Park | 11/7/2011

    " The author should have learned how to write a book like a book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Interest Subject | 9/30/2011

    " It was good a book, which's learn how to judge any gesture. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eri | 9/3/2011

    " A quick guide to understand various body languanges, mimic, gestures of people surround us; yet at the end very much depend on the culture-situation-condition to avoid miscommunication and misinterpretation:) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 PaÒ°aM | 6/11/2011

    " Do you believe in these kind of things?! psychology related fields! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 12/2/2010

    " Really nice, short introduction to the study of body language and gesture clusters. I wish it had even more pictures and scenarios to test the reader, but it certainly peaked my interest in the topic and its bibliography leads to some more great reading on the topic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicolle Atchison | 11/4/2010

    " Good short read, more common sense than something new "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mike | 7/25/2010

    " Interesting idea, but, ultimately, all the analyses are put forward in a tautological manner. Why do certain behaviors, postures, etc. betray certain moods, thoughts, and feelings? Just ... because. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margot | 1/25/2010

    " What I like about this book for teaching purposes is that it can work from ALL levels: Low level basic writers up to second level freshman composition. This book has simple explanations that can provide students with a good foundation for future research and studying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 12/18/2009

    " Some good practical examples of body language works well in tandem with Signals by Alan pease "
