One of the most useful books I've read
Well written with clear examples and illustrations. This book has not only opened up a window for me to better understand others but also to better understand myself at times when I'm not sure how I'm feeling. People I observe around me look more interesting now - REALLY! People used to look all the same to me, and now everybody I see around me is different! Whoever you are, whether you want to understand your friends and lovers better, or you want to get an edge at work, this book is a MUST!
Helps you pay attention
Mostly to your own nonverbals.
