A Reader Review
Neglected masterpiece, September 2, 1998
Reviewer: Henry E Dreher (see more about me at Amazon.com) from New York, NY
Conventional wisdom has it that the firest two-thirds of this treatise on character analysis improved psychoanalytic technique, focusing on character-based resistances rather than just on interpreting content--associations, dreams, etc. True enough, but the last third, which analysts and critics say represents Reich's slippage into maddness, is even more brilliant and farsighted. Here, Reich moves into the area of bioenergy and body-based psychotherapy. He presages some modern developments in psychotherapy, and in many respects, moves ahead of where mainstream therapy resides today. His bioenergy/therapy integration was also a forerunner of much of today's alternative mind-body and energy medicine modalities. Reich was not always the most trenchant writer, but here is writing his sharp, direct, and provocative. This is Reich's great contribution, still largely neglected.

A Reader Review
A highly recommended book! Fascinating!, May 27, 2000
Reviewer: A reader from California
If you ever wonder what kind of body type you have and what baggage comes with that profile, go grab this book up! It explains the thoughts that create some of the most common ailments that modern people walk around with now. If you wonder about what causes you to have a broad chest and skinny legs, this is the book for you. If you have any part in the healing art field, this book is essential for your library. Enjoy it, be surely satisfied and fascinated all in one sitting.

A Reader Review
The bible for learning about oriental diagnosis, February 3, 2000
Reviewer: Mort Greenberg from New York
"Reading the body", by W. Ohashi is a must read. From head to toe our bodies have external signs for internal troubles, and this book will show you how to find them to help yourself and others. "Reading the Body" is the one book that I always come back to as a reference. In fact, I'm buying my second copy of this book today since my first is worn out.

Amazon.com Review - Amazon.com, Inc. and its affiliates
It's true that politicians blink much more frequently when they're lying, but what other behavior clues do people inadvertently give off? If you want to know if you're being boondoggled, how to tell if your date is interested in a serious relationship, or if you should take that new job, Jo-Ellan Demitrius will help you figure it all out. She gives away the tricks of her trade--jury consulting--in this eye-opening handbook for predicting the behavior and revealing the thoughts of others. She's consulted for more than 600 jury trials, including the O.J. Simpson, Rodney King, and John DuPont cases, as well as for Fortune 100 companies. If her name rings a bell, it may be because she's been on Oprah, Larry King Live, and 60 Minutes, among other television shows.
Much more than a collection of tips on reading body language, her book is supremely organized, detailed, and thorough, with lists of physical characteristics, vocal patterns, office props, and conversational behaviors that reveal much more than you'd think. She instructs on how to analyze hundreds of details of everyday living, from the style of the picture frame on your boss's desk to the odd way that an acquaintance swears up a storm, in order to uncover personality traits and predict future behavior.

Demitrius isn't a hocus-pocus intuition hawker; she's more of a scientist. "...over the past fifteen years," she writes, "I have tested this method on more than ten thousand 'research subjects.' After predicting the behavior of thousands of jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and judges, I have been able to see whether my predictions came true....I did not always peg them correctly, especially in the earlier years. But by testing my perceptions over and over, I have verified which clues are generally reliable and which are not." Her advice will prove valuable not just to lawyers but to businesspeople, parents, and anyone curious about their relationships. While the book is mostly aimed at deconstructing the behavior and characteristics of others, it's also useful for job candidates and anyone concerned with projecting the appropriate image. -- Erica Jorgensen --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

A Reader Review
The mind appears in the body!, November 1, 1999
Reviewer: Merrily Manthey, M.S. from Washington State
An incredible book! As a professional in the field of human potential, I found this book very useful to offer to clients. And they got excited and passed the title along to their loved ones and friends. The understanding of the various forces (literal and figurative) that play on our physical form is powerful. Must reading for those exploring the euphoria of possibilities!

Book Description
* The first book in English on the ancient Chinese tradition of reading personality traits in physical appearance. * Includes over 100 illustrations that explain the meanings of physical characteristics. * Explains how individuals can influence their destiny and use negatively perceived physical aspects as tools for healthy relationships and positive self-transformation.
Min Xiang Shue--also known as body feng shui--is an ancient Taoist tradition that uses the techniques from the more familiar art of placement (feng shui) to reveal the connection between inner character and external appearance. According to this ancient art, it is possible to recognize the personality of an individual from his or her facial features, hand shape, movements, and posture. Generously illustrated with more than 100 drawings that explain the meaning of distinctive physical characteristics, Body Feng Shui teaches you how to explore your own and others' destinies by reading the truths of the soul as they appear on the human body.

Introduced for the first time in the Western world, the art of body feng shui can show how a negative or positive physical aspect can be partially responsible for happiness or misfortune, health or illness, wealth or poverty. Moreover, though we are given certain attributes at birth, these are not unchangeable. Body Feng Shui provides valuable lessons for redesigning our fate based on the observations of our physical appearance and offers many examples of positive changes you can make to transform an inauspicious physical feature into a blessing--none of which require plastic surgery.

Book Description
More than 90 percent of all face-to-face communications are nonverbal. This "body language" can have a profound influence on how we respond to one another. Learn how to interpret these clues and use them to convey a positive personal and professional image.

A Reader Review
Teach Yourself Body Language by Gordon R. Wainwright, December 1, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Florida
The purpose of this book is to learn a language that everybody knows already. A different form of communications, a form that we all express unconsciously. For example, most people do not realize just how much they use their "eyes" to seek information, to show attention and interest, or even reveal an attitude about something or someone. Just today, I experienced an individual on my job giving me this long "stare." According to Mr. Wainwright, "Long unflickering looks are used by those who seek to dominate, threaten, intimidate or otherwise influence others." (Chapter 2, page 11) A person staring can also have an adverse effect on its outcome. In my case, it was not a look of influence or encouragement! Mr. Wainwright's book is a constant reminder or should I say an "eye opener" of our own source of being. Often, we do not pay attention to our surroundings we take these small things for granted. This is an excellent study material for communicating without orally communicating. Teach Yourself Body Language is a contributing factor to personal growth and self-development. This book consists of 17 chapters, contents dealing with Eye Contact, as I mentioned above, Facial Expression, Gestures and Movement, Appearance and Physique, Body Language and Spoken Language just to name a few. This book is concise and it is not long nor boring. There are exercises after each chapter that you or a group can have some fun. For example; with the eyes, in his book it tells you that the next time you are in a public place, like in a restaurant, observe the other people present as discreetly as you can. Note how they look at each other when they are talking. Also, note how long each period of eye contact is (no need to time it-just note whether the mutual glances are short or long). There are reviews to your exercise(s) but you would have to read this book in order to find out the outcome. I give this book a 4 star! It's good reading and very informative. I would absolutely recommend this to you or any others who would like to find out more about the limitations and advantages of body language as a means of communicating. Suggestions for further reading complete the book and should prove helpful to the reader who wishes to explore the subject further.
