Edited by three leading authorities on nonverbal behavior, this book examines state-of-the-art research and knowledge regarding nonverbal behavior and applies that scientific knowledge to a broad range of fields. The editors present a true scientist–practitioner model, blending cutting-edge behavioral science with real-world practical experience, thus making this text the first of its kind to merge theoretical and practical worlds. This book is a valuable resource for students and professionals as it explores the science behind the practice and reveals how other professionals have effectively incorporated nonverbal communication into their fields.
This book serves as an excellent text or supplement for courses/seminars in nonverbal behavior, nonverbal communication, human interaction, profiling, security management, and homeland security, as well as courses in interviewing and qualitative analysis.

The book is well written and informative.
Well written and presented book
Areas covered include importance of facial expressions , body language and gestures and how non verbal communication affects behaviours
A fantastic book for anyone working in face to face situations with others. Allowing you to read body language and divert situations that may arise. Giving examples of body language and tonalities that could be construed as offensive, it gives insight to how people intergrade with each other in an unconscious manner.
Lovely book! Really well written, very interesting and full of useful theories.
A detailed text on nonverbal communication, and is written in a way that is easy for students to master the concepts>
An interesting book that will provide some useful knowledge for students.
Good background reading - clear and succinct.
Very interesting book, still lacks some ethnometodological views I find important.
An interesting read from a teacher trainer's perspective in helping to develop this aspect of course delivery on teacher training courses, however it is a little dense for trainees as an essential text.
There is a lot of material to support development of delivery on communication theories, and it will be listed as a supplementary text on courses.
