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.

"Body language and Behavioral Profiling" is a timely book on the vital roles of nonverbal communications and people reading in our everyday lives. We all use body language to communicate our innermost feelings, thoughts, and attitudes along with spoken words. Knowing the hints, clues, signals, and signs that people use in business and social settings helps people to interpret behavioral motives, and enables them to rapidly organize information for quick decisions that may be consequential. In addition, facial expressions, posture, dress attire, and gestures that people use all infer future behavior patterns. In this book, body language signals and signs are broken down into understandable topics backed by authoritative sources. Practical pointers help readers to adopt better image and self-presentation skills. The social science tools that are covered will help readers to "get" the motives and behavior of others, while improving their own intercommunications, which helps people make more informed decisions, meet personal goals, and more fully protect themselves.

Almost all of us look for nonverbal cues about what the other person is thinking or is about to say or how they are feeling. We often estimate correctly whether the person in front of us is lying or telling the truth. In fact, we often use the other person’s gestures and body language to ascertain whether he or she can be trusted or not. This is what body language is all about. Simply put, body language is just the language of the body. People often think that they show emotions only through their face or through their facial expressions. But that is not the truth. While facial expressions do play a huge role, actually our entire body participates in showing or hiding our mental and emotional state. If there is something you would like to hide, you would not just need to control what you say or do, but you would also deal with the body’s own unconscious cues. If you want to make a good first impression and you are nervous, your body could actually let you down. This guide is aimed at helping you understand what body language is and how you can use it to your own advantage. It will teach you that you can learn to read the non-verbal unconscious cues of others and be able to know more about them than what they reveal. You will also learn how you can control your own non-verbal cues to reveal exactly what you want and nothing more than that. Let’s just begin learning this new language.
