Like a decoder ring for people

The author, Joe Navarro, was an FBI profiler with a tremendous track record of spotting the various nonverbal cues that indicate someone is lying or concealing their true motives. He turns his talents to providing insights and strategies that can be used in day to day life. Specifically, the information he presents is useful for navigating the corporate world and making the most of interactions with co-workers and bosses. I learned a lot from it and, at least for the first few weeks after reading it, tried to (over)interpret every twitch and flinch of everyone I saw and prescribe all kinds of bad motives to them. It's a quick read with lots of cases and examples, and pictures of all the various behaviors he talks about.

This is an especially great book for writers because it captures the the way people move and react and interact.
