4.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know
This is the first book I ever read on body language and I am glad that it was. It provides a very clear understanding of the main themes, although it may be a little dated it is still relevant. It gives the very basis for a good beginning in this field and is well worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars A book out of antiquity.
The only reason this book receives so few stars for the most part is that the reader is trying to apply this as a today's science and it does not work. The first printing was in 1970 and it was a novelty at the time. Now there are books upon books upon books on the subject and today it is still subjective.

The only reason this book receives so few stars for the most part is that the reader is trying to apply this as a today's science and it does not work. The first printing was in 1970 and it was a novelty at the time. Now there are books upon books upon books on the subject and today it is still subjective. All you have to do is find out which book the other person is reading and practice the signals you want to make that person think that he/she has some sort of insight. In the mean time this book is fun to read to see what over two million people read and what they must have thought.
It uses what looks like personal experiences to explain the ins and outs of body language in different cultures and situations.
Here is what it promises:
. How to make advances without taking chances!
. How to read shoulders. (Is the person in a good mood? Angry? Frightened?)
. Body language between sex partners. How to communicate feeling and need without words.
. How to enter a room full of strangers, inventory body positions, and tell who the "important" people are.
. How to use body language to assume leadership of a group.
. How you can use the "new" language to defeat language.
As Rene Belloq said in [Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark], "...We are simply passing through history; This *is* history."
