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.Read more ›
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.

Disappointing. This book is one of those books people should keep near the loo. It is quite amusing in a very basic way. I would not recommend it for any serious answers.Published on 25 Jun. 2014 by MISS SARA FRENCH

with a minimum of insight and no substantial evidence, anyone can write a book like this. regret i bought it. regret i read it.Published on 5 May 2013 by LEO DE CLERCQ
This book promises a lot but really lacks substance. There is very little support given for many sweeping statements such as "people who don't drink coffee are weird". Read morePublished on 18 July 2012 by Esk
Entertainingly written, and sometimes cringing in how perceptive it is or otherwise just plain fun.Published on 23 Jan. 2010 by J. N. D. Addison
