You really can observe the behaviors the author discusses in any social situation; it really does work.
J. Collins
Although this book does contradict itself, I still highly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject.
R. J. Sundseth
A waste of money, better spent doing something you enjoy rather than in this particularly futile direction.

Format: Paperback
Body language & non-verbal communication fascinate me, so I figured to love this book - Besides, from reading its title, I expected this book to be one up on secret sex stuff so how could I go wrong.
Unfortunately, no such information exists in this book - For what it's worth, the author's presentation is totally devoid of detail or information - On a scale of 1-100 rating subject content, this book is worth a 5 - Next to nothing on page after page after page.
For example, the author writes one statement about how someone's automobile is an extension of his body and therefore an important indicator of self image - Great, but that is the sum entirety of the author's comments in that area - No specifics, examples, analysis, nothing - Just knowing cars are important is good enough I guess - The whole book is that way.
The idea of an authoritative book relating body language to sexual content and non-verbal communication is a great idea - If the author knows anything of such matters, he should write one.

This book was written by a clinical psychologist. However, unlike many other books of this type, there is no pop-psychology jargon or grating "feel the love -let's sing Kumbaya" tone either. I got the feeling reading this that it was originally a textbook for an undergrad college class-no bad thing, the author clearly has taught this subject before and knows how to communicate it. This is NOT about manipulating people or making someone become attracted to you who otherwise would not. Instead, it's more of a decoder-ring intrepretation of visual cues people make when looking at someone whom they find attractive (or not). You really can observe the behaviors the author discusses in any social situation; it really does work. Be warned though, that the blurb in the Amazon writeup is a little misleading; the book does not laundrylist gestures and meanings it's simply not laid out that way. Worth getting if you're single, or simply interested in people watching.

this excellent book is thoughtful and insightful. the author is a psychologist who obviously values sound research over pseudo psychobabble. there are numerous practical examples of everyday encounters between men and women and the ways in which people can learn to communicate more effectively. the book is sexy witty and makes a refreshing change to most of the contemporary sex books available on the market.

I'll go ahead and get the 1 bad thing out of the way, and then go ahead and review all the other wonderful aspects of this highly recommended book:

On page 56 - referring to handshakes - the bold text reads:

"Unconsciously we reveal our desire to dominate by placing our thumb on top [during the handshake]."

On page 57, in the body of the text, the reader will surely be confused when he reads:

"People less concerned with power tend to offer a hand in which the thumb is on top and may have less need of domination."

I would assume that the person who puts his thumb on top is more concerned with domination, but that is just my intuition, and since the book provides the reader with an outright contradiction, the reader will need to rely on intuition for this part. Perhaps if the author is reading this, they can go ahead and edit the book before its next publishing.

Now that we have that out of the way...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found it extremely helpful. I went to a party recently and was amazed at how many different signals were being sent out from person to person during conversations that neither party was aware of. I didn't go interview any of these people to check my validity per se, but the people I had originally brought along with me to the party confirmed with me their interest (or disinterest, as it were), which I had witnessed before they said anything about it simply by reading their bodies.

This book has many colored photos showing what you should be looking for, fortunately of very attractive people. I really enjoyed that the photos showed without apparent exaggeration what exactly one should see.

Some books I just read and some books I read with a highlighter underlining as I go then making notes in the margins. Flipping through this book, I found that I had heavely highlighted it, the detail is that rich. While the illustrations were not that informative the content is. And it's not a sexual technique manual, it's more on methods of flirting and how to detect it. I recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This is a must read for the naive and unexperienced heterosexual male. If used correctly, the contents of this book can help anyone dodge what I call "social selection." Do yourself and every possible conquest a favor by reading it.
