Did a girl across the bar just flip her hair while looking at you? Did a stranger just rub his chin in your direction? What messages are they trying to convey? Formatted like a classic field guide, but concerned with body language in all its forms, Field Guide to Gestures has a full-color insert with photographs of more than 100 different gestures, plus detailed text explaining the gesture's full meaning. The step-by-step directions show you exactly how to make each gesture and all its variations. From the gesture's historical context to its usages and areas of occurrence, you'll find out all you need to know to decode and communicate with gestures.
