The Definitive Book of Body Language by Allan & Barbara Pease

JuneAllan and Barbara Pease apply their background in medicine, biology, and psychology to show us exactly how the brain affects our body language. In “The Definitive Book Of Body Language”, the authors help us sharpen our EQ by teaching us how to use our knowledge of the brain's functions to understand people's emotions and behaviors.

Bodylanguage communicates up to 70% of the message a person is giving. How to read that body language is what this book is about. 

This highly entertaining and amusing book is full of examples from real-life as well as various exercises to practice reading people's emotions and behaviors.  It also instructs you on how to hide your insecurities and other feelings you don’t want known, making you look more confident and more aware of how you sit, shake hands, or stare at a person.

Whether you are an interviewer, a manager, a teacher, or looking for a job, this book can help you overcome whatever communication barriers you might face.

Read the book and share your thoughts:

  • Would you say that you have the ability to “read” the person in front of you easily?
  • What type of body language do you give off when you are around people you are comfortable with?
  • Has understanding other people’s body language helped you in your life?
