GREAT book

This book is meant for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of body language and verbal communication. The author backs his methods with experience from working as an FBI spy. Truly an insightful book that everyone should read to become a better communicator at work and personal life.

Not Much New and WOW, so much repitition

If you've read anything about reading body language, you likely won't find much new here. The book is pretty basic. If this is your initial introduction to body language, you will learn the fundamentals. The thing that gnawed at me with this book is the repetition of information. The book could easily be at least 40% shorter sans the repitition. If I had one dollar for every time friendship was defined, this book wouldn't have cost me anything. All in all, I wouldn't recommend it.
