Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. Containing more than 260 illustrations, Body Language 101 serves as a comprehensive dictionary of nonverbal communication. Human behaviorist Lambert uses research from the areas of kinesics, zoology, gender studies, and psychology to demonstrate how people use body language to reinforce speech or indicate their mood. The guide triple-indexes the material, with one section organized by body parts (e.g., arms-linked, legs-crossed), the second by actions and their meanings (e.g., signs of conflict, sincerity, and deceit), and the third by emotions and meanings (e.g., embarrassment, ownership). A particularly interesting chapter covers signs of deceit, with photographs illustrating dishonest gaze behavior and foot actions. This is easily one of the best books on the subject, even surpassing Susan Quilliam's Body Language. Highly recommended for all libraries.

Format: Paperback
The plus: Lots of good photos.
The negatives: The photos of the gestures don't need explaining.

You'll learn astonishing body language signs like
(1): If someone raises their arm, they are greeting you.
(2): When someone is surprised, their eyebrows raise, their eyes widen, and they make an 'O' mouth.
(3): When someone is sad, the corners of their mouth move down. When happy, the corners go up.
(4): If a man drapes his leg over a chair, it means he's indifferent to your opinion.
(5): If a woman smiles at a man and then lowers her head, leans towards him, and strokes her leg, it means she's interested in him.
(6): People often greet each other by extending arms and shaking the hand. But in some cultures, they hug.

You won't learn anything from this book.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book for insights primarily on telling when people are lying, to help identify opponents' unconscious "tells" in poker games. The book's subhead suggests such insights will be featured prominently. But the book instead is almost entirely about gestures, not body language. The reader is treated to such basic instruction as what people mean when they nod their head up and down ("I agree with you") or when they are twiddling their thumbs ("a gesture of boredom"). It might be useful for someone who has lived in total isolation his whole life. For the rest of us, it's not very helpful.

The book is very clear and readable, nicely organized and well-illustrated. However, the material covered is very basic (e.g., legs crossed, common signs of boredom and irritation, common courting signals, personal space, etc.) If you are looking for something basic, though, this is strongly recommended for its clarity (including wonderful illustrations and pictures) and conciseness.

This book is a series of pictures (bad ones at that) with simple explanations, such as happy, angry, disgusted, sad. The kindle formatting is terrible.

Hand gestures like OK and thumbs up are covered. Smiles mean your happy? WOW. I guess I should have known that 101 was going to be basic.

This is a waste of time and the ¢99 I could have used to buy a tooth brush or a rubber bouncy ball. This is the most astoundingly trivial piece of crap I have seen on the internet in my life. You would be better off learning about body language by watching the Twilight movies. Mr. Lambert please never attempt to write anything again. And I'm making my disappointed face as I write this.

I feel like I am wasting my time reading all the common sense, as if it just wants to "fill out the white space" to call it a book.

when reading about each body language it has excellent picture but it then refers you back to other pages to read. I think it should have things all together instead of going back and forward trying to understand on the kindle fire. it not that easy to move from page to page on the kindle, it actually make me lose interest in the book.
