9780007272716: How to Read a Person Like a Book

The body never lies. A tilt of the head, a crossing or uncrossing of the legs, even the buttoning or unbuttoning of a jacket, can speak pages about what a person is thinking or feeling about his or her immediate surroundings and situation. More importantly, it can tell a great deal about how one person reacts to another. To be able to recognize the meaning of these cues and to be able to respond to them in the manner one chooses is the art at the center of this provocative book. How to Read a Person Like a Book is an illustrated guide on learning how to spot the hidden messages that we send to each other with our bodies.

From the Publisher:

I took a road trip in January, drove from Dallas to New York City with one of my best friends. One problem we knew we would face was music. Where I tend to lean towards singers who hold a bottle of whiskey while singing, he enjoys the smooth sounds of R&B.

AudioBooks were the solution.

After listening to How to Read a Person Like a Book somewhere between Memphis and Nashville, every single gesture was analyzed, and in a small way, still is. And now I'm very conscious of what my body language is and I don't sit in meetings with my arms folded in front of me.
-Carrie, Random House AudioBooks Publicity

* Gain command of business and social situations
