I have been really into reading psychology books. I don’t know if you would call a book on body language a psychology book, but I do. It wasn’t very helpful, but at least it was a bit interesting.
Book Review: Without Saying A Word by Kasia & Patryk Wezowski
Title & Author: Without Saying A Word by Kasia & Patryk Wezowski
Genre: Nonfiction, psychology
Release date: July 24 2018
One wrong move can undercut your message.
Believe it or not, our bodies speak louder than our words. Postures, gestures, and expressions convey reams of information—and often not what you’d expect. A smile, for example, is usually considered welcoming. But crook one corner of your mouth higher and you project superiority, subconsciously chasing other people away.
Without Saying a Word explains how even the subtlest motions have meaning. Distilling decades of research, the book deciphers these unspoken signals: from facial expressions and fleeting micro expressions to positive and negative body language. Discover which postures and gestures indicate confidence and build rapport—and which reveal disinterest, arrogance, or even aggression. Learn to end off-putting habits, accentuate good ones, and become an authentic and effective communicator.
Exhibiting body language that is open, honest, and self-assured increases your social influence and enhances your skill as a negotiator . . . while the ability to read the emotions and intentions of others is equally indispensable. Whether you’re making a presentation, pitching a project, or closing a deal, the right body language can be your best ally.
I give Without Saying A Word by Kasie & Patryk Wezowski three out of five hearts. It was nice to hear all these things about body language but it was a dry book to get through. Sometimes Kasie throws a little but of humor into the writing, but it wasn’t great.
Without Saying A Word is an interesting read, but a lot of it we already know and it worked as just a reminder for me instead of actually teaching me anything.
