    1. OK, I have finished it, and I am glad, although I feel bad because I cannot point out WHY it was not fun to read. It is detailed and absolutely correct, but it lacks spark. It reads like a text book. There is nothing at all wrong with this book, except that it is not fun to read. The author is clearly capable, and a kind and thoughtful person, but his writing skills are too didactic for my taste.I easily read body language. All that is pointed out seems very obvious to me. That which is pointed [...]

    2. دو کلام حرف حساب:جای تامل و شاید ناراحتی داره که از لیست سیصد و پنجاه نفره دوستانم تنها سه نفر کتاب های زبان بدن و مطالعه کردن. قانون نانوشته ای هست که می گه موفقیت، بیش از هشتاد درصد وابسته به مهارت های اجتماعی و تنها بیست درصد به مهارت های تخصصی و فنی ارتباط داره و از بین مهارت [...]

    3. ***2 grade school level stars***I'm not giving this book two stars because it was bad. The book has a lot of interesting tuff about body language For a grade schooler! J. Navarro's observations are good and on point, but they are basic. This book should've been called "Body Language For Dummies"I've always been fascinated by body language, being able to see what people aren't telling. Words may lie, but body cannot. It's like a reflex that you cannot control. I'm sure there are people that are a [...]

    4. بعد قراءة هذا الكتاب, أصبحت قادرا على الطيران إستحوذت على قدرة قراءة أفكار الآخرين ورؤيتها بكل وضوحعلى الاختفاء في أي لحظة من اللحظات.أن اوقف الزمنأن احل اًصعب المسائل الرياضية وأعصاها فهماً على العلماءأن انتقل من أي مكان لآخرأن أحرك الاشياء باستخدام التفكير فقط,أن أسلق ال [...]

    5. This was informative, much like other 'non-verbal intelligence books are. What I particularly enjoyed about Joe Navarro's teaching is that the body language itself is not enough to assume a particular emotion. A lot of other books will say, for example, that if you shake your foot a lot you're nervous. But some people are foot shakers or just nervous by nature. With such people they are likely to either shake more violently or simply stop when nervous. So you see, while body language is telling [...]

    6. برخلاف عنوان جذابش، کتاب معمولی ای بود و بیشتر حرف اضافی بود تا اطلاعاتتکرار مکررات و خسته کنندهاینجور کتابها به شدت وابسطه به تصاویر اند (برای توضیح و تکمیل مطالب) که متاسفانه از این جهت هم از عکسهایِ راهنمای خیلی کمی استفاده شده بود

    7. كتاب جيد يعاب عليه التطويل المبالغ فيه من الكاتب فى سرد المعلومات أيضاً لم يستخدم الكاتب عدد كافى من الصور لتوضيح فكرته و التى تغنى بالتأكيد عن الوصف الطويل النظرى الذى لجأ إليه المؤلف كثيراً2.5/5

    8. It would be really, really hard to get me to give a book like this more than three stars, because what I want from it isn't what most readers want. I want not just the tricks, the ideas, the things to watch for, but also the *proof*. It's got more citations than I'd have expected, so that's good. But very rarely does the author say "d we know this because of this particular experiment" or "e of this anthropological study."I don't know if the interpretations the book gives of different things are [...]

    9. Great tips and overall a very interesting read. What I like most is the author's attempt to explain the whys for all the little tidbits he's mentioning here.

    10. Let me tell you something, even though this book is such a great eye opening book for having more successful conversations with ppl whom you don't know, it can take away your peace. The way this book push you to concentrate more on the body language of people than their speech is somehow fluster.But its great it's worth it and im gonna use it a lot in my life

    11. When I picked up this book I was quite full of scepticism. I know how hard it is to detect deception and I expected that this book was going to tell me 50 ways to spot a liar from various tells. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author had a good grounding of the science behind body language and tons of field work (unlike the TSA, who with 15 minutes of training, can spot a terrorist just by looking at them).What the book does do is give you dozens and dozens of clues as to how a perso [...]

    12. مفيد و ممتع. يكشف عن الكثير من الإشارات اللاكلامية التي نقوم بها لا شعوريا و تحكي الكثير عن وضعنا النفسي أو عن الخطرات التي تدور في خلدنا. تناوله للموضوع كان مفصلا بما فيه الكفاية و واضحا دون غموض المصطلحات أو تعقيد الأفكار. ثقة الكاتب في معلوماته واضحة و زادت من راحتي أثناء ق [...]

    13. To explain why this book wasn't really what I was hoping for, it would help to explain what I was hoping for: I am mildly autistic, and I have difficulty picking up on nonverbal social cues, particularly in informal environments like casual conversation, friendship, and dating. So I've been looking for resources on identifying nonverbal behaviors in these sorts of circumstances: Is he interested in what I'm saying, or bored and faking a smile? Is she attracted to me, or just being polite? Do the [...]

    14. This is an excellent must read if you're an author. I recommend the hard copy vs ereader however, because you get pictures in the actual book. This book illustrates what people do with their body when they are afraid, nervous, happywhatever. Insightful read if that kind of thing interests you, but particularly useful as an author to describe a scene.

    15. تعلمت أشياء أكثر ذكرت هنا ولم تذكرفي الكتاب السابق الذي سبق وقرأته في نفس الموضوع لكن لم أعرف لماذا كان المؤلف يصر على مخاطبتنا وكإننا نعمل في التحقيقات الفيدرالية مثله أو سنفعل ذلك يوماً ما!

    16. Hep ilgimi çeken beden dili konusuyla ilgili nihayet bir kitap okudum. Daha önce benzer bir kitap okumadığım için değerlendirmem yanıltıcı olabilir ama yine de kitabı çok beğendiğimi açıkça belirtmeliyim. Sözel olmayan işaretlerin bizlere nasıl yerleştiği mantıklı şekilde açıklanmış, resimlerle gösterilmiş ve FBI ajanının anılarıyla desteklenmiş. Hal böyle olunca, kitap keyifle ve kolayca okunuyor. Farkında olmadan kullandığımız ve gözlemlemeyi de zaman [...]

    17. Every activist, counter-cultural figure, and free-thinker should read this book, if only to know how organizations like the FBI operate. There is a lot of very intuitive stuff in here, which Navarro will help you recognize, and a lot of it is useful -- but it also implies a lot of stereotyping and generalization. Which is funny, since my instinct was defensiveness every time I came across a picture of Navarro in his baggy suit and cold, piercing eyes. Even more so when I looked at the pictures o [...]

    18. December 2013 Pacifying behaviors are not indicators of lying. Mouth movements and hand movements. Great book. July 2013 - Reread the book, so much information. My take away this time is that I will start focusing on one body part at a time. I am also more aware of self soothing behavior in myself and others.March 2012 - Awesome, so interesting. I am going to have to review this over and over again. This book should easily help me get all of my poker losses back!

    19. This exciting book opens your eyes to the very things of body language you know about. The pictorial representations makes it easy to read even not-so avid readers could just take a couple of days or so to complete the entire book. Yet, in the end you feel as though you have achieved and understood the non-verbal behaviour with a better view of the world around you - able to see most of what we take for granted in everyday life.In the book, Navarro demonstrates several types of body languages in [...]

    20. The genius of this book doesn't lie in its pages, but in how it modifies your behavior in every day life. I mean, the information is laid out in a pretty basic fashion and it can get a little wordy sometimes (it's written like a conference speech) but it goes to work on your lymbic system (joke you'll get if you read the book :P) You'll start noticing which ways torsos bend and who is steepling his hands in meetings at work. It raises awareness and makes everyday life more interesting and it act [...]

    21. Everyone should read this book! Much helpful, and realistic information is presented here about reading body language and non-verbals. This is helpful for everyone- parents, friends, counselors, etc.

    22. 3/5 StarsHmm. Not much to say about this one.This was about as average as a book can get. I mean, I thought the contents were interesting (even if everything I read wasn't new to me), however, the writing itself was mediocre and kind of boring. I felt like Navarro did a decent job explaining everything - though I believe he could have done much better.

    23. Ever since I first watched the show "Lie to Me," I have been fascinated by non-verbal behavior. I was probably fascinated by it before then, especially when I was a baby and had to rely on gestures to understand how people were feeling, but this is the first time that I have been consciously fascinated by non-verbal behavior.I bought this book along with another book on the same topic, and this was my favorite of the two. I didn't read the whole book straight-through, instead choosing to read a [...]

    24. The book has great insights into body language and nonverbal communication. I was going to give it 3 stars because I didn't like the writing, it seemed very repetitive and at sometimes boring, but I changed my mind to 4 stars because, as this was my 1st read into body language, it had a lot of new info to me. Had I read another body language book before this, my opinion would probably have been different. Some of the things I learned:- nonverbal communications must be read in context- establish [...]

    25. I agree with some other reviewers here. This book is useful. Everything it says is accurate. But the way it is written is B-O-R-I-N-G. A reviewer said that the book was too didactic for her. Perhaps, but I've read plenty of academic journals and many of them are more fun to read than this book. I don't know what part is wrong. And apparently this lacklustre writing style doesn't improve with translation either.

    26. Somehow I got it into my head that this book was about getting evidence from crime scenes, starting with bodies themselves? Actually, it's incredibly similar to Spy the Lie, although it's focused on interpreting emotions and feelings in general, and not just identifying when people are deceiving you. It's very clear, easy to read, and has helpful illustrations (which I don't remember from Spy the Lie). The book is divided by parts of the body, with sections on the legs and feet, torso, arms and [...]

    27. Found it a bit useful when it comes to reading:1- silent people,or the ones who don't talk much. 2-Or taking your first impression of a person by the way he moves his hand or leg or even his head The book also introduces a lot of methods to reveal the worried people, frightened ones and those who hide behind a mask of fake feelingsThough everything that has been mentioned is useful, you need alot of practice and an alert sensations So you can notice every single moveThe thing I liked the most ab [...]

    28. This was the best book I've read on body language. I actually read every word instead of skimming as I usually do. Former FBI agent Joe Navarro writes clearly,gives many anecdotes and pictures describing truthful and lying behaviors. When he was a boy of eight, newly arrived from Cuba, he learned which people liked him (their eyes widened slightly) and which people didn't (their eyes squinted slightly). We learn our pacifying behaviors (stroking our neck, playing with our hair, etc.) which indic [...]

    29. หนังสือเกี่ยวกับการอ่านภาษาท่าทางที่คนเราสื่อออกไปตามธรรมชาติโดยไม่รู้ตัวค่ะ หลายๆ สิ่งเราก็พอจะอ่านออกเป็นเลาๆ อยู่แล้วนะ แต่มีหลายท่าทางที่เราไม่เคยแปลความหมายจริงๆ มาก [...]

    30. Non-verbal communication has always fascinated me, and this appears to be a well-organized and educated approach to the subject by someone with a lot of experience. Maybe it will help navigating the plethora of back-stabbing actors in Los Angeles. Ha ha ha. He has a nice bibliography and references too, which is always nice.Pretty dry, so I am not through yet, but the information seems pretty good and pretty well organized.I recommend this book as a good start on understanding non-verbal cues
