Body Language Book


Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good body language "dictionary" that would be similar to the emotion thesaurus? I just looked at Amazon and there's quite a few with many mixed reviews. I plan on getting the emotion thesaurus as well, but there's only so much nodding a character should do before it becomes a tic. 😂

I purchased The Dictionary of Body Language by Joe Navarro. It's broken down into the areas of the body (eyes, mouth, nose, hands, feet, etc) and it really interesting. Joe Navarro is a retired FBI agent who specialized in using nonverbal communication (a.k.a. body language) to catch spies. What I enjoy is how he explains how a movement can indicate several emotions and isn't a cut-and-dry "this is what they're feeling." (I'd also recommend checking out some of his videos on YouTube. They're very interesting.)
