About this deal

I bought this audiobook years ago. I won't deny I happily swallowed the "an ex-FBI agent" bait, grabbing the book when it was on discount. Now I finally got to it, not without some trepidation (what if it would end up being too sensational and simplistic?). Navarro, Joe (2017) Three Minutes to Doomsday: An Agent, a Traitor, and the Worst Espionage Breach in U.S. History. Scribner. ISBN 978-1501128271

Read this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you. You will discover: Navarro, Joe (2010) Louder Than Words: Take Your Career from Average to Exceptional with the Hidden Power of Nonverbal Intelligence. HarperCollins, Pub. ISBN 978-0-06-177139-2.

That being said, compared to the latter half, first part of the book was more interesting to me, for most of the matters in first part were quite new to me, specially how reliable the lower limbs are. This was informative, much like other 'non-verbal intelligence books are. What I particularly enjoyed about Joe Navarro's teaching is that the body language itself is not enough to assume a particular emotion. A lot of other books will say, for example, that if you shake your foot a lot you're nervous. But some people are foot shakers or just nervous by nature. With such people they are likely to either shake more violently or simply stop when nervous. So you see, while body language is telling you must also add other important clues up to come to a conclusion. You can't say all people who have a stern look are stern. Some people get nervous anyway when being accused of lying and may exhibit nervous actions. In 2005, Navarro got involved in the World Series of Poker Academy, training players on poker tells after a chance meeting with Annie Duke on a Discovery Channel program about detecting lies.

Crossed legs is a sign of comfort and confidence and may point in the direction of the person most favoured. Crossing away, forming a barrier with the upper leg, is a negative behaviour whereas crossing towards, pointing to the other person with the upper knee, is a positive sign Puffing out of the chest, heavier inhalations and disrobing are all signs of fight / flight mechanisms Hands interlaced behind the head means I'm in charge and is also indicative of confidence or dominance

In meetings when people spread out their arms and papers it is a show of power and confidence whereas people wishing to go unnoticed or with low confidence will often keep their hands in their laps and their elbows below their waist freeze, flight, and fight. (الجمود عند الشعور بالخطر أو جمود تصرفاتهم و عكس تصرفات غيرهم لتنجب الخطر؛ الطيران أو الهروب يخدم هدف الابتعاد عن الخطر بالركض أو بمجرد محاولة إقصاء النفس عن الخطر كإغلاق العينين أو تغطية الوجه؛ و آخرها المواهجة بمختلف Increasingly disappearing lips indicate stress or disagreement especially so when the corners point downwards Aufschlussreich war auch die persönliche Geschichte hinter dem Autor selbst. Dadurch wurde ersichtlich warum er sich so intensiv mit dieser Thematik beschäftigt hat.
