when passing people in a crowded hallway, woman passing a man tend to turn her chest away to pass, while a man will turn his chest toward the female.
when you cross your arms, do you cross the right over the left or the left over the right? Did you know that 70% of people tend to do this in a certain way? (answer in the book)
So are you going to be a Body Language expert after this book... no, however it gives you a great base-line on where to start and as with most things (see Malcolm Gladwell's -'Outliers' or Geoff Colvin -'Talent is Overrated') it's going to take practice (a lot of it) to become an expert.
Here's something you can do while you wait for the book in the mail: while watching TV (when people are interacting) mute the sound... see if you can pick up on what is going on, what are the emotions, and notice the mannerisms and gestures. Then if you have a DVR rewind and unmute or if you don't then just unmute the TV and see if you were right.
Overall I would highly recommend this book. Now onto my next one.... Jef Nance - Conquering Deception :)
