Imagine meeting someone for the first time and within minutes―without a word being said―having the ability to tell what that person is thinking. Magic? Not quite. Whether people are aware of it or not, their body movements clearly express their attitudes and motives, communicating key information that is invaluable in a range of situations.

How to Read a Person Like a Book is designed to teach you how to interpret and reply to the nonverbal signals of business associates, friends, loved ones, and even strangers. Best-selling authors Gerard Nierenberg, Henry Calero, and Gabriel Grayson have collaborated to put their working knowledge of body language into this practical guide to recognizing and understanding body movements. In this book, you will find the authors’ proven techniques for gaining control of negotiations, detecting lies, and even recognizing signs of sexual attraction.

Whether in an office, on a date, or on a family outing, the simple technique of reading body language is a unique skill that offers real and important benefits.

From the Publisher:

I took a road trip in January, drove from Dallas to New York City with one of my best friends. One problem we knew we would face was music. Where I tend to lean towards singers who hold a bottle of whiskey while singing, he enjoys the smooth sounds of R&B.

AudioBooks were the solution.

After listening to How to Read a Person Like a Book somewhere between Memphis and Nashville, every single gesture was analyzed, and in a small way, still is. And now I'm very conscious of what my body language is and I don't sit in meetings with my arms folded in front of me.
-Carrie, Random House AudioBooks Publicity

From the Inside Flap:

1 cassette / 40 minutes
A multi-voice production

Explore the language that exists beyond words - the language of the body and its gestures.

Whether conscious or not of our bodies' movements, we express our feelings, attitudes, and motives through gestures that are often vague and frequently ignored. How to Read a Person Like a Book teaches you how to "decode" and reply to nonverbal signals from strangers, friends, and business associates, allowing you to:

* Gain command of business and social situations
* Sharpen your negotiating skills
* Recognize signals of affection and attraction
* Enrich your knowledge of body language.

Learn the clues that make reading people easy. Gerard Nierenberg's proven techniques for gaining control of negotiations, detecting lies, or recognizing signals of affection and sexual attraction will dramatically improve your understanding of others, giving you the advantage of added insight into all social and business situations.
