A fascinating, highly illustrated guide to the secret language of body gestures and postures that reveals what we really think and mean. If you cross your legs are you relaxed or tense? What does it mean if you stroke your chin? Do you know the meaning behind a friend lowering their eyebrows? Would you know how to greet an inhabitant of Greenland? How would you subliminally show ownership of your brand-new car or house? All these questions and many more are answered in Collins Gem Body Language. Now fully illustrated with colour photographs of hundreds of gestures, postures and 'attitudes', this is the handiest visual analysis of body gestures and everyday scenarios available.
