I've read a few books on the subject and found this one to be one of the best so far.
In her new book, THE SILENT LANGUAGE OF LEADERS, Carol Kinsey Goman sums this up with this statement, "body language is in the eye of the beholder".
It is well written, an easy read and very informative to HR/Labor Relations professionals.
While reading I begin to be exposed to the role body language play's in our lives.
