About the Book

The Nonverbal Factor was written as a textbook for students in a nonverbal communication course. At the same time the general reader should find the contents of the book interesting and exciting. Covered in the book are the ways we communicate with our bodies, our faces, our eyes, our voices, our touches, our body movements, our dress, our use of cosmetics, and our structuring of time and space. Special chapters are included on making impressions, culture, and deception. The final chapters look at the importance of nonverbal communication in law, medicine, politics, and the employment arena.
