In this new edition of the highly successful Visible Thought, Geoffrey Beattie revisits the question of what our everyday gestures mean and how they affect our relationships with other people. With a unique blend of popular examples and scientific research, and presented in language that everybody can understand, Rethinking Body Language will appeal to students of social psychology and also to anyone who wants to delve beneath the surface of human interaction.
The scientific study of body language and what it tells us about human nature is absolutely fascinating and especially relevant in an age of digital communication, where communication is being taken out of the body more and more and inserted into virtual spaces. Geoff Beattie's book is an in-depth and thorough investigation into the many modalities of communication, emotion, and cognition involved in body language. It is brilliant and a must read for anyone who is interested in the mind-body-culture nexus that makes humans unique. - Marcel Danesi, University of Toronto, Canada
This superbly written eye-opening book ends the myth that the body has its own language. Gestures and speech unify, and Beattie provides new understanding of exactly how. A rich array of examples show that gestures reveal a speaker's beliefs and presuppositions as they speak, even when unwittingly they contradict what is being said. - David McNeill, Professor Emeritus, University of Chicago
