    " I look at people in a different way after listening to this audiobook. And it's so intuitive, it's almost like... what the heck changed, what took me so long?! It's a good book! "

    " If you're looking for a book to change the way you view any social situation then this is the book for you! What every body is saying offers the reader a fantastic view into the world of body language and makes you very aware to what people are saying before they begin to speak! An awesome read and highly recommended to everyone interested in understanding other people. "

    " Good info. A little favored toward police profession but good lessons for me since I attempt to read people for a living. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nejc | 2/8/2014

    " It's entirely up to you if you believe this new-age stuff. Body language reading and deception detection are interesting concepts and I myself choose to believe them. If you've seen the series Lie to me and want to at least partially know "how does Lightman do it?!" then this book is definitely for you. It also has useful and descriptive pictures which help a lot with understanding the cotent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mwylie | 2/1/2014

    " Very long and detailed, but one of the best body language books that I've read. The author is one of the best non verbal communication experts and makes it clear that even if a certain non verbal action means something 90% of the time, you cannot take it as fact without a base line and knowing the reason behind the action (generally neurological). Much of the discussion on the brain includes the Limbic system. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/27/2014

    " Very good book. Navarro supports his points nicely w/ real life examples and photos. He's clear, concise, doesn't make grandiose claims. His writing style is very personable. The information presented is logically organzied and again, well-supported. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/18/2014

    " Good photos with cluster keys to help evaluate the non-verbal message someone might be sending. Written from a police perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/15/2014

    " Pretty good - nice for characterizations. I'm going to go back through and make a list of "repsonses" for my writing notebook. He didn't go into some of the "thinking" responses I know about, but that's okay. Good visuals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 1/9/2014

    " This has to be one of the best books of the year. Packed with fascinating and new insights into human behavior. Actionable information that will absolutely change the way you observe and deal with people. Insanely helpful in my daily life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ted | 1/7/2014

    " Good overview of nonverbal communication behaviors. If you have not read anything on body language, this is a good book to introduce the subject enough to get you to see yourself and the people around you in a brand new way. I feel like my eyes have been opened to a whole new world around me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 12/23/2013

    " Interesting read. It was a little too targeted at the corporate world than I would have liked, but I found it interesting none the less. Anyone who interracts with other humans could benefit from reading this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christa | 12/18/2013

    " I want to read more on this topic. This book was well written. The format and author's style was spot on in keeping me interested. Five stars all the way. Navarro: great read! "

    " I have this book by Joe Navarro as a constant companion. What Every Body is saying is an outstanding resource every cop, security officer or anyone interested in reading people and the signs and signals of deception and danger should read this book. I highly recommend! "

    " excellent excellent excellent book!! I can't say enough about this book. If you are really interested in learning how to read body language this book really helps! And it is so fascinating I couldn't put it down after I started reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 11/12/2013

    " Makes the bars much more enjoyable. Just don't get caught. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jules | 9/22/2013

    " Started off well, but got progressively repetitive and to me, obvious. Expected the book to be more englightening than what it actually was. Nothing much new here that I hadn't already heard from elsewhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 9/15/2013

    " Great. Insightful. Helping sift through the bullshit people say and get to the heart of what they are thinking and feeling when interacting with others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 5/28/2013

    " Not as helpful as I thought it would be. It still is a fascinating topic for me. 3 1/2 stars if I could. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 1/30/2013

    " Great book on body language from head to toe from a retired FBI agent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abelardo | 1/19/2013

    " A really good book to learn about body language. It must be used as a reference and constanly re-read it. Is almost impossible to get everything at just one read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 12/20/2012

    " Very interesting in parts, but the narrator of the audiobook is HORRIBLE. Hate it when that happens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ansh | 11/16/2012

    " Great explanations but quite repetitive. However, a very good read if you are interested in reading body language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tristan | 11/9/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 10/7/2012

    " A good introduction for the (lazy) layperson to body language. It helps if you actually have a friend that's a behavioral psychologist to help you identify body language correctly...but the examples in the book, and the pictures identifying various body language, helps a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 9/27/2012

    " fascinating - but lots of details to remember - fair assessment of why you can't easily detect deception, despite what some "specialists" claim. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 1/31/2012

    " After reading this book it makes watching Bankers or Politicians being interviewed quite entertaining. "
