Examining the role of eye contact in a diverse range of contexts, Michael Ellsberg provides expert insight through a potent mix of prescriptive exercises, persuasive arguments, and entertaining and informative interviews, ranging from renowned pyschologists and authors to behaviorists and matchmakers to Playboy Playmates and World Champion Cagefighters.

So far, very easy read with good information. Not a lot that's new to me, but good as a refresher, and a reminder to practice.

This book is easy to read and full of useful tips spanning a range of common scenarios. The end of it became too spiritual for me, but even those chapters left me seeing the world a little differently.
