Excellent structure, easy to read, no useless clutter
am 25. März 2010
The biggest asset of this book is it's excellent structure. As someone with a little knowledge about both aspects, the psychological backgrounds of, and body language itself, I am deeply impressed how the information is stripped down to the essentials, yet still feels like an easy read. Literally every single page is full of important, well-presented content.
Each chapter deals with one part of the body (feet, legs, arms, ...). It starts with a theoretical introduction about the limbic background reactions, the why's of what is happening and the role and importance of this specific part of the body. Then various possible poses are being outlined and discussed. The author is very strict about not to prejudge any observations and never gets tired to remind the reader that spotting nervousness has nothing to do with spotting a lie. He is very cautious and provides solid ethic advice on the subject of "reading people".
My personal advice is to go through the book one chapter each couple days, and observing the new things learned in between.
I usually try to find a negative point, but this book just doesn't have any.
One last hint: This book is targeted at beginners. If you already know a lot about body language, you might not get all too many new ideas, yet the book will still suffice as a good reference and the small bits of the authors personal advice can always be beneficial.
