More than "body language," or conversational signs and signals, the structure of your body is a graphic expression of your physical, emotional, and mental state. It reveals past trauma and present personality, feelings expressed, and feelings unexpressed. Now two noted body therapists have written the first completely illustrated primer on reading your own body and the bodies of others. The opening chapters of The Body Reveals discuss just what body structure can tell you. The authors then take up each section of the body, giving detailed information on the relationship between body parts and corresponding emotions and attributes. This is followed by an examination in words and pictures of the bodies of five individuals and the stories their bodies tell. A special chapter, complete with instructions and illustrations, enables you to discover what your own body says about you. The Body Reveals could be your first introduction to someone you've never really met.
