How To Read A Person Like A Book
I'm working with Square One Publishing updating illustrations from How To Read A Person Like A Book originally published in 1971.
So now, almost forty years later the original two authors, Henry Calero and Gerard Nierenberg have teamed up with Gabriel Grayson, an authority on sign language and nonverbal communications to create the number one book on body language.
It's been an interesting process, showing how various gestures, postures and expressions communicate everything from authority and confidence to defensiveness and self-consciousness. It's definitely taken my "people watching" to a new level.
