Body Language: It’s All About You! is a short book that contains much information about body language. Readers will learn the secrets of body language, specifically how body language is an expression of emotion. Author Stanley G Buford explains the relevance of everyday poses and gestures, such as shaking hands, smiling, crossing your arms, and even nodding. The reader will also learn the importance of the “Superman” stance and how they can use it to their advantage. Body Language is important to business, the author explains, and there are actually a few gestures that are effective for succeeding in the business world or the work environment. A gesture as simple and common as a handshake can have multiple meanings, and ten tips for giving a handshake are included in the book. The book concludes with some signals pertaining to both men and women individually, as a guide to relationships and dating.
As a writer, Body Language: It’s All About You! was an interesting and educational read. Author Stanley G Buford lists so many different types of body languages that the reader cannot help but be intrigued and want to read on. In particular, I was interested in the ways to tell a genuine smile, the true meaning of crossed arms or legs, and the gestures people make when recalling information, or even when they are nervous. This was truly a spectacular read. I recommend the book to those interested in this topic, those in the business and working world, and even writers like me who want to know more about body language and meaning.
