I was impressed by this book. What brought this work to life were the excellent demonstrative graphics and the humour. The graphics lifted the words from abstraction to reality. It is a tough balance when the conversation moves to influencing versus potentially ending up manipulating, but again Michael Nir keeps this balance through careful and professional approaches to interacting with colleagues. .the weekend was largely a success although inconvenienced by not having my stuff, the bag is found and I read a splendid book.

When I was married, my husband was an abusive person. I divorced him. But at the time, I didn't feel like I had any prospects to make things better, or even anyone to help me. I couldn't drive, had no skills and no job. When we would go somewhere, with seemingly no indication he would backhand me. I learned early to read his body language, and yet sometimes I would miss a cue. I would sometimes sit in the seat with my hand clenched tightly in a fist, and I wondered why. I knew that I needed to calm down and not be so stressed, so one time I opened my hand and laid it down on my thigh palm-down. My stress level went way down.
The reason for telling you this story is simple. I know what I'm talking about when I say this book will help you. It may or may not save your butt from a physical attack, but it might. This book is actually more for business dealings, but as with anything in my life I have learned to adapt the principles and practices in other ways than in which is was meant. For instance, this book is for business, but would work equally well in a personal setting.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what those gestures mean. If you want to know how to be a person manager, employer, and employee; and hopefully make less mistakes, read the book. Learn how to read all those gestures and body language, so as to have a better overall picture.
However, this may be helpful if the reader is socially inept and has trouble relating to people and interpreting their intentions, social cues, etc.
I read the book in one sitting and very fast. That is probably because it was referring to a lot of things that I already know but have just not thought about. It is a good book although I do nota agree with everything that has been said in the book. My wife is going to read it next. I would recommend it to other people as well.
