Product description

Review

The naked ape will be a wiser and better hominid by the time he has thumbed his way through to the end, Observer

An extremely important book...eminently readable and richly illustrated -- Niko Tinbergen, Nobel Prize Winner for Physiology

This is the kind of book you pick up idly and put down very reluctantly, Daily Mirror

A clear and careful introduction to an involved subject, The Times

From the Inside Flap

Peoplewatching is the culmination of a career of watching people - their behaviour and habits, their personalities and their quirks. Desmond Morris shows us how people, consciously and unconsciously, signal their attitudes, desires and innermost feelings with their bodies and actions, often more powerfully than with their words.
Consisting of his timeless classic "Manwatching, completely revised and updated, with much new material gathered since the book's original publication, and for the first time incorporating the text of Bodywatching, this new edition is set to become the definitive "body language bible."
Lavishly illustrated throughout with line drawings and two 16pp colour plate sections, "Peoplewatching is a handsomely designed and fitting tribute to one of the most thought-provoking and popular scientists of his day.
