The book itself is very thin so you can speed through it in no time. There are helpful pictures to illustrate the points mentioned, and the book is helpfully broken down into various chapters, splitting up face movements, hand shaking, seated gestures etdc. It has made me think much more about what my "comfortable" seated pose actually says- "agressive, defensive and not wanting to be part of the conversation" so I will alter this from now on.
The only criticism is that the book is slightly dated, as expected and there is a lack of equality in the book when referring to the body language used by both men and women. This is obviously written in a time when the corporate workplace was very much a male dominated environment, and unfortunately a lot of the gestures used by women referred to in this book refer to "sexual readiness" of the woman!
