Had some interesting parts especially towards the end but the constant reminders that reading people isnt an exact science became very grating. This can be a positive thing, such as physical attraction, or an unconscious manifestation of stress from being the center of attention. The book will be very useful for everyone, who wants to learn about psychology, negotiation, and human behavior. But of course, it could also mean that the room is too loud and they can’t hear – remember not to look at cues out of context. Eye contact is hard to fake, so if you aren’t noticing darting eyes or prolonged stares, the person is more likely to be relaxed.

Parts of this book read like the most interesting and applicable psychology textbook you’ve ever read. I don't agree with some parts which involve stereotyping, but overall the main message is 'look for the context, then try to understand people'. It's one powerful, game-changing skill that can be strengthened with the right resources and How to Read People Like a Book is the perfect tool to help you do it. You must surrender to other vital forms of information so that you can learn to read the important non-verbal inutive cues that people give off. Gerard Nierenberg was the founder of the Negotiation Institute, an educational non-profit institute dedicated to advancing the art of negotiation.This book is one of the most practical books I have read in some time, a book whose value is obvious and which fills a fairly drastic need in my own life. I’ll show you my science-based approach to building a strong, productive relationship with even the most difficult people. There are many levels of communication going on when a person interacts with the world, verbal, psychic, and body language. Another study found that we can identify not only basic emotions in the voice (positive vs negative, or excited vs calm), but also fine nuances.

The more often participants showed all four of these cues, the more they acted in their own self-interest during the game. While these signals may tell you what economic decisions the person has made, they do not translate into behavior. Sometimes wealth or the desire to be wealthy is shown in the quality of garments, shoes and even a haircut.It is quite well known among anyone remotely familiar with me that I enjoy reading books and that I have a great deal of interest in the problem of interpersonal communication [1]. I felt this book opened some good ideas and thoughts and made me realize that I'm not as bad as I thought, but there are so many more things that can be done.

I also would have appreciated references to studies and other sources of information to delve into sections deeper. Knowing exactly what to look for and what to say to different personality types in different scenarios can feel daunting and even impossible.

This is one strategy for reading people you’re surely already using, even if just unconsciously: look at the persons’ clothes.

To read people like a book, you must become aware of bias and separate it from your perceptions — or at least try to.

We just saw how facial expressions are useful for reading people, but not always accurate reflections of emotions. We tend to miss it because we go onto the next thought so rapidly that these critical insights get lost. There was an explanation on gestures that "turn off" and "turn on" listeners which I found quite interesting especially if you want to get a point across.

Identity claims are deliberate statements we make about our attitudes, goals, values, etc… One of the things that are really important to keep in mind about identity statements is because these are deliberate, many people assume we are being manipulative with them and we’re being disingenuous, but I think there’s little evidence to suggest that that goes on. Overall I give this book a 5/10 and I would recommend this to anyone who is newly interested in psychology. For example, in the book King uses the example of a girl playing with her necklace and having feelings of being anxious. The Summary Guide at the end is just a copy-paste of the Takeaways at the end of each chapter; either takeaways or the summary guide would be enough but not both.
