The Nonverbal Advantage
Secrets and Science of Body Language at Work
By Carol Kinsey Goman Ph.D.
Publisher: Berrett-Koehler Publishers
Final Release Date: May 2008
Pages: 202

The workplace is a “blink” world: studies show that we form opinions of one another within seven seconds of meeting and that 93 percent of the messages people receive from us have nothing to do with what we actually say. So the ability to recognize and develop good nonverbal communication skills can be a huge professional advantage.

Carol Kinsey Goman combines the latest research and her twenty-five years of practical experience as a consultant, coach, and therapist in this fun and practical guide to understanding what you and the people you work with are saying without speaking. Cartoons, photos, entertaining anecdotes, and dozens of simple and enlightening exercises help readers gain control of the messages their bodies are sending so they can project a more accurate and compelling picture of who they really are to their colleagues, clients, and partners.

Comments about oreilly The Nonverbal Advantage:

I found the book interesting as an introduction into nonverbal communication. Each chapter outlined what it was going to be about and included information on a multitude of different aspects.

The introductions in each chapter tended to run a little long, and there was very little supplemental information included.

It was very interesting hearing about this subject matter from a therapist, because they literally use this knowledge every day at work, and it allowed me to perceive other occupations where this knowledge could be considered essential.

What I found amazing is that so much of the nonverbal communication is universal to all humans and not linked to a particular society, very neat.
