    Body Language Book

    I read a book on body language about a year ago and it has been one of the most helpful books when it comes to telling if people are aggressive or non-agressive, telling a lie or the truth or telling if they are open or closed to comments being made in meetings. It is very entertaining to read the book and sit in a shopping center and just evaluate people walking by or in the food court and seeing people talking to other people. Just by looking at a persons hands, feet, eyes and mouth you can tell alot about what a person wants to do even if they don't say anything.

    I know that LEO are taught alot of this as well as car salesmen. It has helped me alot and I plan on rereading it again just to try to absorb more of it.

    so what was the book called?
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    Yeah, I would like to know as well.
    One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we canít allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.

    Another excellent one is by Joe Navarro, it's called "What Every BODY is Saying: an Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People."

    Yes. I have the same. I bought it about 5 years ago now...I think...it is the best book on body language I have read. It was recommended to me by a friend who used to dragged me down the shopping mall and we pretend we are animals in a cage...we looked at people's face, their expressions and the way they walk and uses their hands...it was weird but if you have a cahoot with you, it becomes fun.

    Also, if you occasionally watch O'Reilly, he has a segment with a woman who reads body language too -- of politicians and celebrities.

    I haven't read any books on body language, but I'm fairly certain when my old lady flips me the bird and walks off, that's a "No."

    For those who have read the book, please let me know if I should be reading this any other way. If that's like double reverse psychology for "I want you now", then I need to know. Thanks.

    I took a class last semester called "nonverbal communication." It's good stuff, but the nature of the communication is highly contextual (meaning all situational factors impact the meaning of the messages being sent non verbally and therefore can be tricky to 'interpret'); however, one can definitely become competent in nonverbal comm. allowing them to communicate more accurately and possibly allowing them to predict behaviors.

    That was good...

    I have yet to read the books. But my training did cover how to read peoples body language. The book will probably be very useful and fun. Its always good to keep sharp on all your skills!
