What Every BODY is Saying
An Ex-FBI Agent’s Guide to Speed-Reading People
by Joe Navarro with Marvin Karlins, Ph. D.
2008, HarperCollins Publishers, Inc.
I chose to read this book because I learned so much from Navarro’s and Karlins’ last book, Phil Hellmuth Presents Read’em and Reap.
Turns out, if you’ve read Phil Hellmuth Presents Read’em and Reap, you’ve read this book. From a poker player’s standpoint, you got all you needed to know in the first book, and there is no need to read this one. Some parts are the exact same words and most of the examples of how Navarro used the body tells in his FBI work are the same.
It’s a 234-page read with a large bibliography and an index. It is a interesting book written in an easy-to-digest style. It is very well organized and each chapter feeds off the previous.
Is it worth reading? Not for poker players. Read Phil Hellmuth Presents: Read’em and Reap instead. Yes, for the general public wanting to get ahead in the corporate world, managers, HR personnel, investigators, etc.
Is it a must have for your no limit hold’em library? No.
Is it good for novices? No. Read Phil Hellmuth Presents Read’em and Reap instead.
