Early chapters offer background information on body language research and how to interpret nonverbal signals. Later chapters offer a wealth of information on topics such as mirroring, eye signals, and micro-expressions.

    Body language refers to the nonverbal signals that we use to communicate. According to experts, these nonverbal signals make up a huge part of daily communication. From our facial expressions to our body movements, the things we don't say can still convey volumes of information. According to various researchers, body language is thought to account for between 50 to 70 percent of all communication. A very useful tool in communications.
