Language of dating
This book is also amazing if you want to understand why you are attracted to certain things in a guy and pretty amazing if you love body language : DIt was okay --- I didn't think her dating advice was anything new or novel, but I did like the research on why men and women are different on an evolutionary level.
If the research is correct, it was very enlightening.
The final chapter is a brilliant wrap-up of the entire book, providing a type of cheat sheet for using body language to get an acceptable date in 10 easy steps.
I recommend this for all of the single ladies....(This book was provided to me free of charge by the publisher for pre-release review.
No guarantee of a favorable review was made in any way.)I read this book as part of an attempt to better prepare for voir dire, the process by which attorneys select jurors.
I've read about body language before, just for fun, and realized during my first voir dire session that what I had learned on my own was proving to be quite helpful.
In The Body Language of Nationally renowned body language expert Tonya Reiman turns her attention to romance—explaining how to read the signals of your date, your mate, or that cutie across the bar—and never get rejected again! I think this book is great if you're a novice about body language.
She gave good ideas of what some behavior that would indicate being approachable or unapproachable.
The parts about evolution of the sexes were particularly interesting.
The book talks a lot about what the author thinks of as evolution.
The book is a little longer than it needs to me, because I don't understand why so much time is spent in the first half of the book talking about traits being passed on, such as long hair has been passed on because it showed that a woman was healthy and more likely to have healthy offspring. She makes a lot of culture references and uses colloquial terms so it's not like your standard scientific paper. The Body Language of Dating is a comprehensive analysis of the role of the anatomy in dating behaviors.
That's all fine and dandy, but I don't know what it has to do with body language, when she explains that playing with your hair can attract suitors because of promotes an image of youthfulness, pheromones, etc. It was occasionally a little off putting to me, but there are only so many times I can handle reading the words a cutesy nickname for the male your attracted to in a scenario. Written primarily for women, Reiman devotes the first half of the book to the various body parts of the two genders and how they have developed over time to fill a specific function.
