Summary

Speed-read people, decipher body language, detect lies, and understand human nature. 

Is it possible to analyze people without them saying a word? Yes, it is. Learn how to become a “mind reader” and forge deep connections.  

How to get inside people’s heads without them knowing. 

Read People like a Book isn’t a normal book on body language or facial expressions. Yes, it includes all of those things, as well as new techniques on how to truly detect lies in your everyday life, but this book is more about understanding human psychology and nature. 

We are who we are because of our experiences and pasts, and this guides our habits and behaviors more than anything else. Parts of this book are like the most interesting and applicable psychology textbook you’ve ever used. Take a look inside yourself and others! 

Understand the subtle signals that you are sending out and increase your emotional intelligence. 

Patrick King is an internationally best-selling author and social skills coach. His writing draws of a variety of sources, from scientific research, academic experience, coaching, and real life experience. 

Learn the keys to influencing and persuading others. 

  • What people’s limbs can tell us about their emotions
  • Why lie detecting isn’t so reliable when ignoring context
  • Diagnosing personality as a means to understanding motivation
  • Deducing the most with the least amount of information
  • Exactly the kinds of eye contact to use and avoid 

Find shortcuts to connect quickly and deeply with strangers. 

The art of reading and analyzing people is truly the art of understanding human nature. Consider it like a cheat code that will allow you to see through people’s actions and words.  

Decode people’s thoughts and intentions, and you can go in any direction you want with them.

It’s great to learn about observing the behaviors and apply to real world situations

The book is so useful when you are reading people’s behavior. This can be used for people who has disabilities or have some specific personalities. The only issue is that the speaker (audiobook) skips some parts from the book so my suggestion is to pause and read whatever is being skipped then you can continue wherever you left off.

Boring and Obvious

If you lack common sense and don’t know how to be observant of people than this is the book for you. This book is so basic and boring I would highly advise to find something different, I have no takeaways from this book other than having wasted my time.
