Knowledge of body language, how to read it in others and how others read your own, can serve you well in both your professional and personal life. As an employee, can you accurately read the unspoken cues your manager is sending? As an employer or manager, can you accurately read the non-verbal communication your subordinates are relating to you? If you are in the dating pool, can you tell if someone is actually interested or just being polite?
Do you know whether approaching someone is acceptable or going to result in you being labeled as some creepy stalker-type? Do you know how your significant other really feels about something? If you are even the least bit unsure the answer to any of these questions is yes, or even if you just want to be sure you’re getting things right, this book is for you.
Body language basics are pretty universal and cover everything from facial expressions to the positioning of a person’s body or limbs, and even their eye movements. Does someone you work with smiles, but lean or turn away from you when you approach? Does your date lean forward and look into your eyes and then quickly away? Are you sure you know what the signals people give off really mean?
