Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Did you know that when you walk into a room, everything about you--from what you're wearing to the way you sit to the way you speak--says something about you? Do you realize that as you're taking stock of someone, he or she is also taking stock of you?

        For fifteen years, Jo-Ellan Dimitrius, America's best-known jury consultant--made even more famous by her work on the O. J. Simpson trial--has predicted the behavior of thousands of jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and judges. In Reading People, she applies her amazing skills to everyday life, explaining which visual and oral clues can reliably predict behavior on the job, in relationships, and at home.

        In Reading People, you'll learn

¸ how to tell a person's sincerity by the tone of his or her voice

¸ how to know if your date is interested in a serious relationship without telegraphing the answer you want

¸ how to use your intuition to determine the right preschool for your child

¸ why people who volunteer information about themselves are less credible than those who wait for you to ask questions

¸ how to stay objective when evaluating a potential boss--even if you need the job desperately

¸ how to make snap decisions that make sense

        Reading People is a remarkable book that not only tells you which clues to look for but also teaches you how to be more effective in spotting them, how to keep your objectivity when evaluating them, and how to see the emerging pattern that tells you which of a person's sometimes inconsistent qualities will dictate his or her behavior.

        In Reading People, you'll learn how to sharpen your intuition and avoid the pitfalls that lead to bad decisions. Even more important, you can become a better parent, friend, employee, or spouse by recognizing the subtle messages of those around you and being more responsive to them. Reading People will teach you skills that last a lifetime.

Synopsis:

A leading jury and business consultant shows readers how to analyze others' true thoughts and predict their behavior by deciphering the hidden signals they give off, revealing to readers how others interpret their demeanor and how they make a good impression, with new material based on today's security issues and online world. Original. 40,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

How can you “hear between the lines” to detect a lie? When is intuition the best guide to making important decisions? What are the tell-tale signs of romantic attraction? Jo-Ellan Dimitrius–America’s leading behavioral expert–shows us how to spot the critical clues to a person’s integrity, work habits, and sexual interests, and to interpret these signs with accuracy and precision.

In this phenomenal guide–now revised and updated–Dimitrius shows us how to read a person like a book. By decoding the hidden messages in appearance, tone of voice, facial expression, and personal habit, she applies the secrets of her extraordinary courtroom success to the everyday situations we all face at work, at home, and in relationships.

New material includes:

• How to read people in the age of terror: what to watch for during air travel and trips abroad, and vital information regarding student behaviors in the Columbine High School and Virginia Tech shootings

• What to look for on the Internet: how to decipher behavioral patterns found in and altered by e-mail, text and instant messaging, and on sites like MySpace

• Facts on body language and health: how chronic illnesses such as Asperger syndrome and Parkinson’s disease influence the way people are perceived, and essential tips on how to counter these misperceptions

• Fascinating new case studies: how body-reading techniques impacted jury selection and verdicts in major trial battles, including the Enron case

Whether your focus is friendship or marriage, career or family, romance or professional success, Reading People gives you the skills you need to make sound, swift decisions and reap the benefits of razor-sharp insight.

“Your eyes will be opened as mine have been by these tips from America’s leading people-readers.”

“[A] valuable guide . . . practical, good advice for discerningly ‘reading’ others and becoming more aware of the myriad of nonverbal messages one conveys.”
