Read People Like a Book--7 ESSENTIAL SKILLS for getting exactly what you want The most important 90% of communication is nonverbal. It's silent--but not hidden. It's instinctual--but you can control it. This book shows you how. You'll learn how to: * Read the nonverbal signs that tell you exactly what people are thinking, feeling, and planning. * Control your own nonverbal communication so you deliver the right message and get the right results. * Decipher gestures and read minds. * Stop sending signals that undercut your words. * Communicate more successfully with friends, family, colleagues, customers, strangers...everyone!

Based on what? Not just words: 90% of the information people present about themselves is nonverbal. Body Language is about understanding that 90%--and making the most of it. It's about learning to consciously read the silent messages other people are sending...so you know what they're really feeling, thinking, and intending to do. It's about learning to control your own body language so that you communicate more powerfully and successfully with everyone in your life. Need an edge? Ever worry that you're not getting your message across? Then these are the most important communication skills you will ever learn. * Recognize lies, fears, and how people are responding to you Sharpen your intuitions and perceptions and use them to communicate more effectively * Overcome bad body language habits that convey the wrong impression Stop making the innocent mistakes that turn people off * Read people through "context, congruence, and clusters" Use body language together with everything else you know, hear, and see * Gain the charisma that comes with effective listening People want to be heard--learn how to give them what they want
Body Language helps you to understand the unconscious body movements and postures that provide intimate keys to what a person is really thinking and the secrets of their true inner selves. You will learn how to read the angle of shoulders, the tilt of a head, or the tap of a foot, in order to discern whether an individual is angry, frightened, or cheerful. You will be able to use Body Language to discover the most—and least—important person in any group by the way others position themselves. The body is not able to lie, for it sends subtle signals to those who know how to read them. Body Language will even show you how to do it without others knowing you are observing them. Body Language was a huge best seller when first published and has remained in print ever since. It has been thoroughly updated and revised especially for this ebook edition.
