Next time readers come across an unfamiliar gesture, they can refer to Field Guide to Gestures and quickly learn what friends, coworkers and passersby are really saying when they communicate nonverbally.Formatted like a classic field guide but concerned with body language in all its forms, this book has a full-colour insert with photographs of more than 100 different gestures, plus detailed text explaining the full meaning.From the gesture's historical context to its usages and areas of occurrence, readers find out all they need to know to decode and communicate with gestures.
