Review by unlikelyaristotle
I actually read this book in my senior year at high school, sort of as background research for my stall at our school charity fair, where we were telling fortunes, reading palms, interpreting dreams and reading tarot cards. I was interpreting the dreams and reading palms, and what I learned about body language here helped me way more than all the books, articles and website pages I read on actual fortune telling put together! The stall was the hit of the fair: no bragging!! It was talked about for weeks afterwards, and I had people coming up to me for ages after asking me to interpret dreams for them!! Although I did put disclaimers saying that this was all in good fun, I guess people believe what they want!It was a great book overall, incredibly informative, and actually practical! Of course I hope people don't use it to supplement careers as swindlers (kinda like what I did? Hopefully the 'good intention' defense would be accepted in a court of law lol!), but I think this should be read by anyone interested in understanding the connection between the body and the mind.
