About the Book

Where actions speak louder than words, body language emerges as a reliable and accurate means of interpreting the thoughts and feelings of those around us.

This book attempts to explore and define the significance of various gestures and expressions that convey far more than mere words. It offers guidelines on how to modify one's own behaviour, read the body language signals in others and use the body to communicate effectively.



This book aims to make the reader aware of his body language-his own non-verbal gestures and signals- and understand the gesture and communicative signals of his fellow beings. The acquisition of knowledge and adeptness at non-verbal communication, makes every encounter with another person, a thrilling experience. One learns to read others' thoughts by their gestures and have an exciting time just watching their body language rituals! One can, with perception and intuition, tell, if someone is lying, or trying to impress someone, or else, is simply bored! Read on, and learn more about the body language which speaks volumes!

Please note that wherever the pronouns he and his have been used, implication has been drawn to both males and females.
