From the Inside Flap
Successfully navigate the business world by understanding what your manager and coworkers are really thinking.
The secret is nonverbal intelligence--the ability to interpret and use nonverbal signals in business to assess and influence others. In Louder Than Words, bestselling author and behavior expert Joe Navarro shows you how to decode what's really being said at meetings, interviews, negotiations, presentations, business meals, and more, including the casual exchanges that often impact decisions and reputations.
You can jump-start your career, close the deal, keep your customers, secure new ones, and lead your company with confidence once you discover how to:
- Read body language and discern non-verbal cues of concern, disagreement, or doubt--even over the phone
- Master the all-important first impression and use settings, seating, and gestures to inspire and captivate
- Recognize habits that send the wrong message--and learn what postures, work practices, work spaces, and even electronic habits say about people

The approach to analysing non-verbal communication is vastly simplified from others that I have seen. This approach is much easier to put into practice since it makes reading the signals much easier in real time. If you are new to the subject, this book would be a good starting point.
I particularly liked the last chapter where Joe provides example interactions from everyday situations. I would have liked to have seen this section expanded. They might just be anecdotes, but they put the material in the book into context and brings the material to life.
Great reading and very useful material. Highly recommended.
I've read ( and not finished) other body language books, which tend to bog down the reader with facts and figures that leave you confused as to what you should be observing. Joe's writing style is easy to read, so much so that I managed to read it in one sitting. He's always informative, relays facts in memorable ways and uses his real life and real world examples to get his points across.
This book should be in your required reading list toolkit. It contains valuable information and salient points that you probably know but fail to reinforce. You will end up taking something away that will help you in your day to day interactions with others in your business and personal life.
The book does recap some of the material from Joe's previous book (What Every Body Is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-reading People) and then goes on to expand on them in various scenarios such as business meetings, job interviews etc. many of which are illuminated with examples garnered from Joe's own experience (e.g. his father driving past as hardware store because the windows are dirty - `If they don't take care of their windows - they're not going to take care of you').
The book has plenty of pointers on what to look for in non-verbal communication in others as well as how to enhance your own message using this hidden language.
I've got at least three things from this book that I'm emailing to my CEO about how our company can be better perceived; changes of behaviours that are small, simple and inexpensive, but which could have a huge difference - thanks Joe!
