3.0 out of 5 stars It's a good overview March 19 2013
The definitive book of body language is one of the most popular books on body language ever written, but it is has many duplicate information to an earlier and much more descriptive book "The Secret Languages of Success" as it's filled with tips and actionable body language. The definitive book is fine as an elementary overview if you aren't that interested in theory, more just basics.

If you want a FREE version on body language just look up "Body Language Project: The Only Book On Body Language That Everybody Needs To Read" It's an online free book full of original images and it doesn't cost a dime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource - Highly Recommend It! Feb. 12 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have praised this book to my students and anyone interested in body language from the first moment that I read it. It is one of the most comprehensive books on body language that I have ever read. I love that it talks both about body language that is similar across cultures as well as body language, specifically, gestures, that are or can be different from one culture to another.

There are many pictures/photographs used throughout this book depicting universal body language signals.

This book also has an interesting section on seating arrangements/office set-ups, the signals these arrangements can send and then gives specifics on how to arrange seating according to the type of meeting one wishes to hold.

I teach communication courses and this book is always one of the books I put on the recommended reading list.

If you want an excellent resource book on body language then this book is well-worth reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pseudoscience at best Aug. 2 2010
By 1009
This book was so poor that I decided to waste my time and write my first review on amazon. Where to start?

400 pages? Yes; filled with a font size only required for the elderly and an array of useless diagrams and gags. The authors also freely waste a sizable amount of every other page by quoting the content found on the very same page, except in a much larger, bolder font.

Unlike facial expression, body language analysis is a very ambiguous science, and a very limited amount of valid research has been published. The authors, seemingly unaware of this, use obscure case studies to say things like "scientist A at university B proved C". Where C is nowhere near related to the research presented, and the fact that the authors think that scientists `prove` anything perfectly displays the ignorance found in this book.

The biggest problem is that the authors consistently make extraordinary claims without citing any evidence. Page after page statements about the evolution of certain postures or behaviors, or of the universality of a body expression are simply asserted without any reference to scientific research. Some of the most heavily relied-on supporting evidence is gathered from comical, out of context, selections of pictures of famous leaders engaged in postures or behaviors described in the chapter.

Money well wasted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read and lots of useful tips! Nov. 9 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I work as a professional outside sales rep and I loved this book. Not only is it a very easy read but you learn a lot about what people do and why. You also learn great ways to improve your appearance by the smallest little changes. The book does cover a lot of basic things in order to dive into the not so basic. Bare through the first few chapters and you will thoroughly enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very well put together Sept. 15 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was a disappointment to me. He makes all sorts of claims without out backing them up frequently. The way writing style makes you feel like he is lecturing to a child.
