    OK, I have finished it, and I am glad, although I feel bad because I cannot point out WHY it was not fun to read It is detailed and absolutely correct, but it lacks spark It reads like a text book There is nothing at all wrong with this book, except that it is not fun to read The author is clearly capable, and a kind and thoughtful person, but his writing skills are too didactic for my taste.I easily read body language All that is pointed out seems very obvious to me That which is pointed OK, I have finished it, and I am glad, although I feel bad because I cannot point out WHY it was not fun to read It is detailed and absolutely correct, but it lacks spark It reads like a text book There is nothing at all wrong with this book, except that it is not fun to read The author is clearly capable, and a kind and thoughtful person, but his writing skills are too didactic for my taste.I easily read body language All that is pointed out seems very obvious to me That which is pointed out are things you will recognize and do not dispute but perhaps you would not think of them until you see then listed there on the pages And listed they are Every detail of body language from your hands and arms and feet and torso and eyes and facial expressions and in fact every part of the body is covered No much is surprising The author is careful to warn against rapid assessments he carefully stresses one must not jump to conclusions He is so careful it gets kind of boring But how can I criticize careful accurate text It IS repetitive.Here is a question Aren t some people just plain better at reading body language than others If you are not adept at it will you become proficient by reading this book Better perhaps, but you have to have the feeling in your bones That is what I think To put together all the elements and weigh them against each other you have to have a knack for it, and no book can give you that OK, you can perhaps start with this book. if it doesn t put you to sleep.The narration by Paul Costanzo is equally accurate and clear as the text But neither does it excite If you want to know all the details of what every body part is saying when you move this way or that, read this book, but I suggest you read it slowly, chapter by chapter with perhaps another book in between I feel like a creep giving it only two stars but for me the book just felt OK Fun, it wasn t The audiobook has accompanying PDF files that provide illustrations which clarify the text

    2 grade school level stars I m not giving this book two stars because it was bad The book has a lot of interesting tuff about body language For a grade schooler J Navarro s observations are good and on point, but they are basic This book should ve been called Body Language For Dummies I ve always been fascinated by body language, being able to see what people aren t telling Words may lie, but body cannot It s like a reflex that you cannot control I m sure there are people that ar 2 grade school level stars I m not giving this book two stars because it was bad The book has a lot of interesting tuff about body language For a grade schooler J Navarro s observations are good and on point, but they are basic This book should ve been called Body Language For Dummies I ve always been fascinated by body language, being able to see what people aren t telling Words may lie, but body cannot It s like a reflex that you cannot control I m sure there are people that are able to lie through their teeth, make all the right gestures, hold their arms just right, or cross their legs in a matter that doesn t show that they are uncomfortable, unsure, threatened or insecure, while talking to someone But these sort of people are few and far in between When I saw that on the book cover it said An Ex FBI Agent s Guide to Speed Reading People , I thought the author is going to give us examples from his days in FBI Unfortunately, most of the situations he used were from his encounters with his family, from his seminars and just general descriptions of a body language That was quite disappointing Also, the fact that he used his own and his friends colleague s acted out pictures to highlight his points, made this book that less interesting The pictures seemed fake and quite cartoonish Do I really need to see a picture of a woman finger pointing, to understand that it s an offensive gesture For exampe Or to see a picture of a person squinting, to understand that a person you are talking to with thinks that you are full off it That s what I mean by grade school knowledge of body language.On the book cover it says that this book is an international bestseller , I don t get why.I would ve preferred if he, the author, had invited a couple of volunteers for an interview, with a purpose of reading and capturing their body responses to his questions, since he can t use the material from his days in FBI That would ve been the next best thing I also didn t appreciate his advice on how to dress to impress He might be an expert how big of an expert he is on that is yet to be determined on reading people, but fashion guru he is not A person might not be able to control their body language, but choosing clothes depends on few different factors, such as money, mood and or taste which is constantly changing Author trying to give an advice on how to dress to appeal or not too certain groups of people is quite funny and useless Clothing has nothing to do with a body language I m sure clothing tells a lot about a person But in this book, it was irrelevant It was clear, when he started to talk about how to dress, that he was diving into a territory he wasn t familiar with and ended up sounding sillyWhen choosing your wardrobe and accessories, always remain cognizant of the message others may perceive from your dress Also consider that although you may deliberately want to use your attire to send a signal to one person or a group of people at a specific time and place, you may have to pass a lot of other people who are not as receptive to your message along the waySo basically what he s saying is that there is no way to pleasing everybody DUH , that he has no answer to how dress to correctly appeal to people in certain situations Why talk about it in the book at all It felt like the author was simply trying to fill up the book space Funny thing as I was writing this review, I had the book beside my Mac, for quotes, and noticed one funny thing about the book cover In the book the author says that crossing the legs indicates that person is comfortable with the one s he talking with spread legs indicates dominance, who wants that , that crossing legs in a relaxed manner indicates comfort But, if you put your ankle on your knee, it says that you are trying to create a barrier between you and a person you re talking to with.Although on the cover the author s arms are wide open, shoulders down, head to the side, feet are directed at the one looking at the cover, and it gives you the vibe that you are welcome to have a friendly chat with him, his ankle is on his knee This made me think that although he wants to look like he is confidant, relaxed and open, the ankle on the knee indicates that he is creating a protective barrier between him and a reader Why He is an Ex FBI He should be confidant with what he s putting out to the world I can t help but think that after all the secrets he revealed, tips that he gave on how to read people, he himself, subconsciously chose a picture to be used on the book cover, which revealed him being insecure about his own work It gave me I really hope you like it sort of vibe That made me wonder how good of FBI agent he was If his book cover is anything to go by

    The book name is a pun and it is about body language My body is so ready see what I did there 4 stars for now Maybe I will change the rating later I need to sleep on this one

    This was informative, much like other non verbal intelligence books are What I particularly enjoyed about Joe Navarro s teaching is that the body language itself is not enough to assume a particular emotion A lot of other books will say, for example, that if you shake your foot a lot you re nervous But some people are foot shakers or just nervous by nature With such people they are likely to either shakeviolently or simply stop when nervous So you see, while body language is telling This was informative, much like other non verbal intelligence books are What I particularly enjoyed about Joe Navarro s teaching is that the body language itself is not enough to assume a particular emotion A lot of other books will say, for example, that if you shake your foot a lot you re nervous But some people are foot shakers or just nervous by nature With such people they are likely to either shakeviolently or simply stop when nervous So you see, while body language is telling you must also add other important clues up to come to a conclusion You can t say all people who have a stern look are stern Some people get nervous anyway when being accused of lying and may exhibit nervous actions His book is one of the best when it comes to this subject Sure, not everyone would be easy to read but since reading this book I have been noticingwhat certain body language is saying, and honestly it tends to run on the side of true It s almost laughable how easy the majority of us are to read Very informative

    It would be really, really hard to get me to give a book like thisthan three stars, because what I want from it isn t what most readers want I want not just the tricks, the ideas, the things to watch for, but also the proof It s gotcitations than I d have expected, so that s good But very rarely does the author say and we know this because of this particular experiment or because of this anthropological study I don t know if the interpretations the book gives of differ It would be really, really hard to get me to give a book like thisthan three stars, because what I want from it isn t what most readers want I want not just the tricks, the ideas, the things to watch for, but also the proof It s gotcitations than I d have expected, so that s good But very rarely does the author say and we know this because of this particular experiment or because of this anthropological study I don t know if the interpretations the book gives of different things are accurate or not but by and large I don t care the real value for me was not in knowing what things mean, but in developing a vocabulary with which to think about how people place themselves In that regard, I ve enjoyed the book a great deal

    What Every Body is Saying by Joe Navarro is a fantastic book to decipher the body language of people He talks about some things that I didn t know and that are very helpful From now on, I will take a much closer look at body language.

    Let me tell you something, even though this book is such a great eye opening book for havingsuccessful conversations with ppl whom you don t know, it can take away your peace The way this book push you to concentrateon the body language of people than their speech is somehow fluster.But its great it s worth it and im gonna use it a lot in my life

    Such an interesting topic however, I found myself skimming through the main portions of the book and just reading the descriptions of the photos It sof a visual topic to describe anyways, so the author incorporating these was super helpful He gave good examples for those going into law enforcement but for those who aren t in that field like me , just the visuals would have sufficed.

    When I picked up this book I was quite full of scepticism I know how hard it is to detect deception and I expected that this book was going to tell me 50 ways to spot a liar from various tells I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author had a good grounding of the science behind body language and tons of field work unlike the TSA, who with 15 minutes of training, can spot a terrorist just by looking at them.What the book does do is give you dozens and dozens of clues as to how a perso When I picked up this book I was quite full of scepticism I know how hard it is to detect deception and I expected that this book was going to tell me 50 ways to spot a liar from various tells I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author had a good grounding of the science behind body language and tons of field work unlike the TSA, who with 15 minutes of training, can spot a terrorist just by looking at them.What the book does do is give you dozens and dozens of clues as to how a person is feeling at any given time If what they are saying does not match their body language, this can be a tip that the person is being deceptive Usually, all we can discover from these clues is that the person being observed is enduring stress, or happiness, fear, or some other emotion that might be missing from verbal communication.What the book doesn t tell you is that to really make use of the information, one would have to read, re read, study and practice with the book for a very long time to make the best use of this information Since reading it, I ve watched for some clues mentioned in the book in my personal relationships and found that 1 they are really hard to observe without being noticed as looking for them and 2 once observed, you need a lookup table to remember what they mean Overall, I give the book high marks due to the professional nature of the writing and the admission that lie detection is in fact nearly impossible despite non verbal clues and that might indicate the possibility of deception For my own purposes, I think I ll re read this book in a few months to bolster what I have learned I imagine that understanding these non verbal gestures could go a long way to aiding my personal communications for the rest of my life
