Brief, thank God.

The 2/3 of the volume that aren't advertising the author's other work are filled with information that is new and good. Unfortunately, the part that's good isn't new and the part that's new isn't good.

Useful reminders to remember when you want your voice to be heard and understood in a professional manner.

Very well presented useful information for anyone in a leadership role or hoping to get there.

Mr. Nir is articulate, knowledgeable and not boring. For me, the last is important as, no matter how interested I am in the subject, if it's boring I won't read it. He presents his information as if he is giving a spoken seminar and uses all the "tricks of the trade" one is supposed to when giving an oral presentation. His method translates well into the written word using visual aids, humor, inviting a

This book is meant to teach you how to influence those around you by paying attention to their body language. It also gives tips on how to use your own body language in order to influence people to think a certain way.

Overall, I thought it was a good book. It's rather short, so it doesn't take long to read at all. Plus, I enjoy learning about body language and the influence it can have without us even realizing it. I will probably not put anything in the book into practice, especially since it's

How is this not body language?

Because I am a flawed schmuck and yearn to believe improvement is possible for any of us I have a weakness for this genre that usually disappoints. As it did this time. Still, if you find yourself in a never-ending meeting, and who hasn't? Pick an exercise at random, just to see what happens. It beats watching the clock. The cartoons are charming but very stereotypical.

Quick read worth the time

This was an interesting set of perspectives into the psychology of non verbal communication. A lot of the information seems like common sense, albeit not necessarily logical; however the reader can recognize much of what is described and will be able to apply the new knowledge.

Although I enjoy learning about nonverbal communication and how it can impact situations more so than verbal communication, I didn't much care for this book. There are many formatting and style errors that detract from the actual text. The illustrations though somewhat redeem the typos, but not by much.

If you are a person who enjoys a bit of innocent people watching, you might enjoy this book. A good explanation of our everyday body expressions and what they mean. How to recognize the silent influences, how to utilize, and maximize them in our personal and business life. A good informative read.

Okay, but no real revelations. Might be worth going back to on occasion

Considering this book was free, it's pretty good. I learned a lot about body language that I didn't know and nuances of the proper handshake.

Good ideas. Basic "how to" steps in watching body language and how to utilize in your interaction with individuals.
