Format: Paperback
This is a truly abysmal book and I am amazed that a publisher would ever have agreed to publish it. Despite what it claims, this book does nothing to explain your behaviours or those of other people.

What is notable about all its assertions is that they are not based on research, not a scrap, there is the occasional reference to a survey or a piece of other research but these are not referenced and the main text of the book appears to be based on nothing other than the most crass interpretations of everyday behaviours and choices. For example, who says that your sandwich filling says something about you? What does it mean if you have cheese one day and tuna the next? May be you just have them BECAUSE YOU LIKE THEM???

First out of the traps is what kind of coffee you drink, that makes no allowances for whether you have one drink one day and one another. However, it is people who don't like coffee (of which I have encountered a great number) who get the shortest shrift: "Never has a phrase been so shocking, show-stopping and as strangely alienating as "I don't drink coffee... In body language terms you'll see people who don't even try to mask the fact they think you're freak... If it's the taste that puts you off then you really are a child. Coffee tastes wonderful. Get over it." Blimey, you've been told. Notably, there is nothing about people who don't like tea...

Alarm bells should have rung when the jacket blurb describes Judi James as "a body language expert". Where do you go to train to be one of those? What qualifications do you need? What she certainly isn't is a psychologist and this quickly becomes blindingly obvious as you make your way further into the book.

I'm a fan of Judi James and find her really interesting on Big Brothers big mouth, so I really looked forward to reading You Code.

I haven't read all of the book due to time, but I've read through it a few times.

I found it interesting and I enjoyed reading the analysis and can see how many of the things said can hold truth.

The parts of the book that I felt fitted my description were of the curly hair, the Indian food choice and also the toilet, from what I can remember briefly.

However, I dislike the coffee description, as I gave it up due to the fact that I read it ages the skin, plus other factors. So I thought ok, maybe I should give myself a break and start drinking it again...

well I did...

and I've come out in spots, drinking all excess sugar, having problems with sleep, my anxiety levels feel higher and my skin looks crappier.

So I decided that I'm giving it up again, regardless of what the book says on no coffee drinkers, because who wants to look and feel worse when they can look better?!

Also I would like to add that the book mentions hair dye choice which I don't feel to be completely accurate.

Men like natural looking women and what more natural than virgin hair! :) Well at least Renee Wade from the feminine woman blog looks as though she's kept her hair it's natural mouse brown colour and I trust in her path as she's an expert in love and attraction in femininity, so that indirectly speaks volumes that it's ok if women want to keep their hair mouse brown.

Thought I'd had enough of self-help books but this one really is brilliant, dead funny plus toe-curlingly true when it comes to seeing yourself how others see you! I'm off to sort out my bathroom cabinet and bin all those cuddly toys on my bed before my next date!

I felt this book was ridiculous. She comments that if you drink tap water, 'you're someone with either no sense of taste or decorum or you have a depressive personality.' Also, if you are too lazy like me to change your ringtone from the original one phone came with then, 'you have no personality.' Overall a bizarre analysis of body language with many outrageous assumptions.

I loved this book. It is full of fascinating facts, and it's a real laugh working out what type of person you are. I went through it with some of my female friends, and it kept us amused for hours. I'd recommend it to anyone!

I love this book. You recognise yourself straight away (oh dear!), you start to watch how your boss drinks her coffee, you start to tidy your desk up! You think about your tatty biro in a way you never had before. This book is such fun to read, insightful and thought provoking. I read it in the space of two evenings and straight away began reading bits again! Top marks - it changes your perspective and it makes you laugh out loud!

What does this book say about its authors? - probably that they're over judgemental of people and don't really like them either. The You Code takes familiar things from life like the kind of coffee or tea you drink, the kind of shoes you wear, what your name for the toilet is and using a bit of pop psychology comes up with a not always very accurate appraisal of what kind of person you are. Its really quite bitchy but the analyses make interesting reading nonetheless. not bad
