Fabulous book. Very helpful reminders, even if you are a little familiar with body language. I will be lending it to my teen daughter, as I think there is lots of useful info for her, too.

As a person who is very interested in body language, I have found the information in this book to be extremely helpful in my day to day dealings with others. I have found the information to be well written and researched.

This book has turned out to be a God send for my 19 year old daughter who is a Freshman at a private Jesuit University. Granted, she has had years of public speaking and being in front of people at a local and state level in 4-H. So I would say she is not a novice when it comes to the topics of this book. However, Alexa told me just the other day how happy she was that I bought her this book! Her university expects certain decorum from their students and how to make good impressions. My daughter particularly liked the segments on body language and charisma. This book has a permanent spot on Alexa's bookshelf. I think it is worth buying and giving it a chance. Not all writing styles suit everyone.
I have read the poor reviews. Don't know what to say, but for my Freshman in college it has proven to be a tremendous asset.

Boring and superficial. All could have been said well in just an essay. . .

Overly simplistic and no profound insights

Truly wonderful book. Full of so much information that is so helpful and interesting that we will be reading it for years to come. Also, you can pick it up and read a page or 2 and learn a lot that way too. Thank you so much for offering it!

This is a fun, fast, useful read, most especially for women. As a counselor, I'm always interested in writers who back up their writing with solid research and she's done that here. It's a must-read for women, as our culture sends us mixed messages about trusting our instincts or rather, our ability to 'read' our environment in an incredibly fast, incredibly detailed manner. Unlike many self-help books, what I've learned from this one is applicable in every walk of life - professional, personal, at home, out in the world. Very helpful for moms with difficult teens, as well. She also has sections with links to video, which I appreciate - we all do not learn equally from words on a page. Thanks for offering this, Isabella - from a happy and loyal customer.

I am not crazy about this book. Ms Wood goes on and on and around the subject before she finally gets to the meat. It's just not what I was hoping for. I like a set of cut and dried rules without all the extra verbage. I have started to read it three times and just can't get into it. It's like she's trying to convince me how good she is, before she gets down to the nitty gritty, Sorry. I'll be returning it.
