Steele outlines why all these factors are important in assessing one's interest without verbalization. If over 50 % of communication is nonverbal, it behooves us to align our thoughts with effective nonverbal communication. To do otherwise, leads to extreme miscommunication and failed attempts at connecting. To be as attractive as possible, it is essential to manage one's physical and kinetic expressions.
I highly recommend this book on the road to self-mastery.

And what more important field than male-female interaction, especially in the very delicate stage of meeting and courtship? Who _wouldn't_ want to know what the object of their attention is really thinking -- whether they are just playing games, or if they are really interested? If you know this, then you know who you should be pursuing, and who to stay away from. And your chances of success -- and of not being hurt or humiliated -- at The Dating Game increase significantly.
This alone is an incredibly useful skill to have, but author R. Don Steele goes further. Not only does he explain the many different courtship-related body language signs clearly (with pictures), but he also ties them to very clearly explained courtship techniques. I think of it as Visual Dating 101.
I was drawn to this book through author Steele's www radio show on live365, where he also covers courtship and dating skills. The show is great, so I decided to give the book a try. I found it a treasure trove of useful, sometimes indispensible, information.
Mostmen will buy this book for the same reason I did, in the hope that itwill explain how to get girls to like you without risk of emotional injury. Steele ropes us in by telling us how easy it will be, how the fear of rejection is something we can kiss goodbye forever. Then he begins to steadily backpedal towards the truth: that whether one reads this book or not, the courtship game is learned primarily through trial and error. We may have to accept that no book will ever save us from the necessity of putting our egos on the line.
Steele's advice on interpreting body signals is pretty damn accurate. But the book lacks the concrete advice he initially promises regarding how to respond to such signals, how to safely assert yourself with women without being too aggressive, how to be charming without becoming overbearing. You can't blame him for not being able to provide such knowledge, since it's something for which each individual has to develop an aptitude. But you can blame Steele for promising to provide it in the first place.
Still, this book is a lot more entertaining than most dry body-language books. The information is dispensed in language that anyone on the common side of George Plimpton can understand and use. There's no less of that information than in other books. The photos, grainy as they are, will immediately strike chords with the reader. After reading this book, go out to a restaurant, bookstore or bar and look for signals given by the patrons to eachother. It's fascinating, and soon you'll be looking for signals everywhere you go.
Steele's far-from-PC approach to the subject is endearing to any bitter, frustrated soul unable to decipher the opposite sex. But in combination with the dreadful writing and editing in this book, Steele gradually sounds more like a high school football coach...the last person you'd go to for advice on reeling in the chicks. Some serious cleanup work is in order.
In summary, I'm confused by this book. The information dispensed seems to work for me, but I don't see how it worked for Steele. I'm missing something. This is a great book on how not to lose with women. It does not answer the unanswerable question of how to win with them.
