Joe Navarro is VERY CAUTIOUS about accusing people of deceitfulness. He just lays out a case for observing symptoms of discomfort and pursuing lines of questioning.
and the clues given to observe (potential deception) were pretty common sense

Eh..A decent amount of filler, and the clues given to observe (potential deception) were pretty common sense, eg: once you understand someone’s baseline demeanor, keep an eye out for their responses to specific questions to look for deviations from their baseline responses.. and even then the deviation doesn’t guarantee a “tell”… Wow! Mind blowing.. Seems obvious to me, likely to you too. I probably learned about 1 new observation technique, and I have not read, nor been trained on any of these “techniques” previously.. but if you’ve watched enough youtube videos, seen enough Jenny Jones episodes, and read a book or two in your past you can likely skip over this book. Sorry Joe.

This a great book and very informative. I have learned a lot about body language from reading this book. I don’t know if it’s Joe Navarro trying to use big words or someone else, but it makes it difficult to understand some stuff that is being said. I have a fairly broad vocabulary, but it seems like they used a thesaurus to find the biggest words possible. An old English professor of mine once said “when writing, it is unnecessary to use big words when smaller words work just as well. It makes it difficult to reach various audiences.” I just wish they would have taken this advice, so it would have been easier. I have heard Joe Navarro in many videos, and I’ve never heard him using big words, so I don’t think he is the one responsible. Overall it is an excellent book if you would like to learn body language effectively.
Beware what you wish for if you get this book.

Beyond useful in all walks of life. The only warning I have for people, beware the literal power this book possesses. If you read it a section at a time and then look for that item, you will start to see how much people actually lie in general conversation.

This book is very helpful in reading people’s body language and will help you keep yours in tact when you don’t want the truth getting out. True story…had the book on a counter…a corrections officer brought a prisoner in for medical diagnostic testing. He saw book and asked about it. I then gave him an example of what’s in the book by breaking down his stance, where he was placing his hands etc. He was shocked at my reading basically his thoughts and feelings. He looked almost immediately as though he felt like he was standing there naked. I mentioned some behaviors that he may see on the prison yard and he readily agreed he saw those types of things all the time. If he indeed gets himself a copy of the book he will more readily understand what those prison body’s are saying more thoroughly then he had in the past. I highly recommend this book.
Good, no-nonsense content with supplemental photos

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son who is feeding is newer interest in psychology and counseling. My wife and I started reading it before we wrapped it up for him and enjoyed it, though we only spent about a half an hour with it. The content reminded me of how the TV series “Lie to Me” might have started.

Body language- pro level.

A good read from someone who knows his game. What I’d really like is a full time tutor like the author to accompany me for a month or two, so I could use this knowledge.
A Realistic presentation on the strengths and weaknesses of NVC

Far too many books on non-verbal communication give very unrealistic accounts of what can be ascertained from watching body language. Most are gimmicky and make false promises to entice certain types of readers who are looking for ways to manipulate and supposedly gain mind-control over others. Fortunately this book is one of the few that presents a realistic picture of what non-verbal behaviours can, and cannot, reveal about another person. The author openly admits that in spite of several years working for the FBI and having an interest in reading non-verbal behaviours, even he has only a slightly above chance success in detecting deception.
