A U.S. native now living in the UK, Kuhnke has worked for 20-plus years as a positive impact coach helping individuals and groups increase their personal impact and communication skills. Easily accessible to general readers, her text explains ways to recognize and identify specific gestures, actions, and expressions that convey and support both the spoken and non-spoken message. Written mostly from an English-speaking Western perspective, the text covers the foundations of body language; language communication of the head and its parts; messages expressed through posture, the body's trunk, limbs, and stance; and how to gesture effectively and appropriately according to specific situations. The concluding quick-guide section describes ten ways to spot deception, to reveal one's attractiveness, to find out about someone without asking, and to improve one's silent communication.
