From the Back Cover
From the world’s #1 body language expert* comes the essential book for decoding human behavior
Joe Navarro has spent a lifetime observing others. For twenty-five years, as a Special Agent for the FBI, he interrogated spies and other dangerous criminals, mastering the art of nonverbal communication. After retiring from the Bureau, he wrote the groundbreaking bestseller What Every BODY Is Saying. Now, Navarro returns with his most ambitious work yet. The Dictionary of Body Language is a pioneering field guide to nonverbal communication, revealing the more than four hundred behaviors that will allow you to gauge anyone’s true intentions.
Moving from the head down to the feet, Navarro shows the hidden meanings behind what we do. Readers will learn how to tell a person’s feelings from changes in their pupils; the lip behaviors that may betray concerns; the different varieties of arm posturing, and what each one means; and many other fascinating insights.
Readers will turn again and again to The Dictionary of Body Language—a bible for understanding what your boss really means, whether a potential romantic partner is interested or not, and how to put yourself forward in the most favorable light.

The biggest disappointment is that the content doesn't match the "written-by-retired-FBI-agent-with-decades-of-experience" preface. Going through the book, it seemed like it was written for people who are severely lacking the ability to read body cues (defining hugging and its significance, for example) although there is interesting discussion of less obvious corporal gestures meagerly scattered throughout.
Most of the mentioned body language has an ambiguous meaning or is a means of coping with stress; that is to say, the book was wholly inconclusive and repetitive.
It is definitely an easy read given the content, length, and lack of pretentious language. I would not recommend, however, if you are looking for a in-depth study of human behavior and deception detection.
I would like to add that I believe reading his book “What Every BODY is Saying” first will provide a better understanding as to the contents of this book. Mr. Navarro is an excellent teacher of non-verbal behavior and I believe this provides another excellent example of his expertise on the matter.
I would also recommend those interested in nonverbal behavior check out Mr. Navarro's website which, to me, has been an unbelievable resource for non-verbal behavior studies.
