Reviews

'Nonverbal communication is an essential dynamic in all human relationships. We connect to others through gestures, through smiles and frowns, but often we are unaware of how much we are influenced by what is said without words. In this new volume of brilliant essays by internationally acclaimed researchers and theoreticians that is beautifully orchestrated by editors Aleksandra Kosti? and Derek Chadee, the silent world of nonverbal communication is given the voice it well deserves.' - Philip G. Zimbardo, Emeritus Professor, Stanford University, USA

'As the title implies, this book provides a state-of-the-art look at the research literature on the social psychology of nonverbal communication. The book is unique in its coverage of nonverbal communication and behavior in social aspects of everyday life, including personal and romantic relationships, social interactions, political campaigns, job interviews, and on the Internet. Moreover each chapter is written by top notch scholars in their respective areas of study. For this reason the book promises to make a strong and novel contribution to the literature.' - David Matsumoto, Professor of Psychology, San Francisco State University Director, Humintell, USA

'Kosti? and Chadee have put together an intriguing and most informative collection of chapters written by internationally respected authors from across the research spectrum. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the role of nonverbal language in social psychology.' - Stephen Nowicki Jr., Charles Howard Candler Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology, Emory University, USA

'An important new study of the fascinating subject of human body language' - Desmond Morris, author of The Naked Ape and Manwatching
