While the art of speech, is of course, the most accepted form of communication, and sign language has been developed for the deaf, body language is no less important. Speech is no substitute for physical expression. Quite the opposite (evidence suggests that 55 per cent of people's opinions of us are formed by body language and only 7 per cent from the words we use.) Be it a wave, a smile, a shrug or a frown we all, whether consciously or unconsciously, constantly use body language in our daily lives. But while many people are curious about the body language of others and what all these actions mean, few will have the desire to read into the subject in great detail. They want easily accessible, bite-sized information, relevant to their daily lives. For instance, what do crossed legs signify? How does the body language of males and females differ? What can be learnt about someone from their handshake? Which actions signify powerful versus submissive personalities? 'The Body Language Phrasebook', the first in a new series of pocket reference body language books, is perfect for those people.
It takes 500 of the most common forms of physical expression, split into five main chapters - at work, with family, with friends, with lovers and with strangers. Each entry is supported by a single colour image and concise explanatory caption which help to answer these questions and a myriad of others. For readers with specific queries, a comprehensive themed index directs him or her straight to their area of interest. Further planned titles in this series include 'Body Language for Babies', 'Body Language for Cats' and 'Body Language for Dogs'.
