It's beyond words...
The gestures and signals made by men, women, children-and even pets-often communicate true feelings and desires more than words do. This fascinating study offers insight into gender differences in body language; how to interpret flirtations; meanings associated with specific body parts; the role of body language in the development and promotion of consumer products; how to control yourself in business meetings and interviews; how to know when someone is lying; and much more.
With more than 110 photos and illustrations, this reference goes beyond wordsto reveal the meanings of nonverbal signals, signs, and indicators.
