Présentation de l'éditeur

Why You Should Read This Book!

If you have ever been interested in the fascinating and revealing world of emotions, superstitions or body language, then this book is for you. Craig James Baxter (author of two previous Amazon best-selling books on body language) has developed this useful, practical guide which will help you develop and improve your knowledge of human behaviour across three key topics:

Emotions – Learn what an emotion is and how to detect them, how they work and how they can vary. Also, discover how emotions can be manipulated and why. Reveal more about the dark side of the emotion of happiness and learn how the emotion of fear helps the body react instantaneously to perceived threats.

Superstitions – Learn more about how human behaviour can be heavily influenced by the power of the unknown, and uncover the often unexpected sources of some common superstitious sayings. Reveal the surprising role that both old and modern day superstitious beliefs play in everyday life and how these can affect people’s emotions. Discover how superstitions have infiltrated many areas of life, from the world of sport to restaurant dining, and how amulets, charms and stones are believed to have certain abilities to either attract good fortune or repel evil spirits or misfortune.

Body language – Learn how you can adapt your own body language to portray confidence to bring about success in your personal and work life. Reveal how to potentially spot a liar and also uncover the surprising origins of some body language gestures. Discover how timing and synchronisation are crucial elements when analysing if a person’s actions match their words, and learn how five key terms can improve your understanding of the basics of successful body language reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating subject presented in a reader friendly way 22 janvier 2014

Craig Baxter is an expert that knows how to talk to and include his readers in his stories and musings. Many people would think this a repeat of other people's work, but Craig is an author that works in this field, not to mention the ease with which you can read his books cover to cover and follow every single word.

I was a little surprised to see a section on superstitions and was curious to see how they linked specifically to body language. Reading Craig's journey of discovery about superstitions and how they impact our lives and our body language opens up the scope of this fascinating world to so many angles of reading people that I didn't even finish the chapter before I started trying it out haha.

The writing style is clear and concise while at the same time, backed up by references for further reading and examples that are informative and humorous. Craig Baxter takes you on a journey into the world of emotions then delves into how superstitions can impact our lives, before he explains where some of the more interesting body languages originated from.

For beginners and continued travellers alike, this book gives us novices an opportunity to step into the world of Craig Baxter and learn from one of the best :)

Human Behaviour: A Fascinating Look at Emotions, Superstitions and Body Language, is a very long title for a very interesting book. Strangely and humbly the book starts with an apology, about the authors previous predictions about body language. And how, the author sees the future, personally I feel there is no need to apologies as Baxter is clearly an erudite reader about body language and very enthusiastic. Baxter’s enthusiasm for body language flows through the book. I feel he is always researching, be it with friends, his partner Kat, his cat , talking to tramps and shopkeepers, watching reality TV and sports, Baxter never switches off. He even analysis himself. This self analysis reaches into his work from jumping out of planes to messing with Ouija boards. Baxter is an honest author who intertwines knowledge with humour in a similar fashion to Malcolm Gladwell. The mix of Emotions, Superstitions and Body Language is a great cocktail and a worthy read.

This book combines the personable insights of the author with solid research, presented in an engaging, easy to read format.
This book details individually, then neatly pulls together several of the human experiences that all can relate to: emotion, superstition and interpersonal body language. These are illustrated through case examples that are familiar and relatable, such as football player good luck rituals, the emotional and bodily reactions of the authors extreme sport experiences etc.

The body language subject is explored as a way of educating the reader on how to better observe and recognise the emotional state of others, including signs that children use, in order to improve interpersonal communication and relationships. E.G recognising the signs of emotional suffering or discomfort in others is covered. This is a refreshing difference from other titles on body language, whose books focus on instruction on power plays, manipulation and lie detection, leaving this reader with more than a bit of paranoia after reading them!

This is one of the few books that my husband and teenage son have enjoyed as much as I have.
Human Behaviour: A Fascinating Look at Emotions, Superstitions and Body Language
5.0 étoiles sur 5 HUMAN BEHAVIOUR By Craig James Baxter. 9 décembre 2013
Par MaryAnn Cateland - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am absolutely in awe of Craig-James Baxter's new book, "Human Behavior". It is fair to begin by saying I am an incurable fan of Author CJ Baxter. He has taught us about ourselves via body language, which I always thought was a silent language we spoke. Upon closer examination we find that that language is not necessarily so silent...it speaks through our behavior. Biased though I may be, the work of CJ Baxter stand on its own. He is hugely qualified to share a mountain of information to us. Here's a little bit about CJ.

"Craig `CJB' Baxter has been studying emotions, body language and non-verbal communication for 10 years. Originally working in the medical profession, Craig's job is to support, help and give advice to patients in their quest for emotional and physical wellbeing. Craig has adapted his skills into observing human behaviour and relationships and then analyzing the behaviour and body language on display. His background is in anatomy and physiology, and he has an in-depth knowledge of the human body and its movements."

I promise you, Human Behavior is a fascinating book which you will not want to put down. CJ Baxter's book will drive you to learn more. You will want to investigate because it is educational. You will want to connect the emotions and behavior because it is a reflection of who you are, and you will want to share your knowledge with others because it is incredibly compelling! I even opened one of my study books and looked over some of the information and found that it is comparable to many college texts I have seen. As an educator, that is important to me. There is so much to learn in this book that I have no doubt that you will walk away with a greater understanding of emotions and behavior. I would use this book in any class.

In a traditional text book there is a study of emotions and one's behavior. For instance `The AHA! Syndrome' (Anger, Hostility and Aggression) is a factor in the development of serious illnesses. This includes several health problems such as coronary disease and malignancy that are fatal for countless people all over the world. Indubitably, fresh facts about emotions and health are constantly emerging, and the links between emotions and physical health are far from being totally understood. However, the first thing that we would recognize is the emotion and the behavior it initiates.

CJ Baxter takes it further. Baxter says "There have been many attempts to answer this question which have often been provided by psychologists, however I feel the best answer is to state that emotions are a complex state of feelings that result in a variety of physical and physiological changes which influence thought and behaviour." In his writing CJ Baxter tells a surprising story about a Coffee maker in a South African airport that will not take money, rather, it has been programmed to only dispense coffee when a tired sad face is revealed to it. The emotion triggers the behavior. According to Baxter, emotions "influence our thoughts and behaviour. Such changes enable the person to deal with the trigger (the situation) effectively and without thought."

A poker face, which hides emotions is no easy task. Likewise the Stanislavski Method actor must recall an experience to put the emotion back into what he is doing...because that emotion will affect his behavior and make his acting seem more realistic. The truth is it really isn't acting. It is just stored emotion, for the behavioral response it provokes. In other words it is like the trigger that CJB talks about in his latest, gripping publication.

Sometimes we talk ourselves into carrying certain fears around with us. Like the Method actor, we store away imagined fright by way of superstitions. Baxter speaks about the fear of the unknown. "If someone believes in bad luck, surely they must believe in the opposing good luck? However, nearly everyone I questioned found it difficult to think of more than 3 superstitions that bring good luck (finding 4 leafed clovers & touching wood being the most popular). Many people did also mention having a black cat cross your path, but most couldn't decide if that was good or bad luck. As an aside, black cats were traditionally thought to be witches' familiars, so if one crossed your path, it was believed that a witch had her eye on you."

Personally, I was not able to think of more than three either! So, my understanding is that we create unfounded situations that promote fear. Having grown up with the saying "Step on a crack and break your mothers back" I have to confess I rarely step on cracks! However, it had not occurred to me before reading Baxter's book, "Human Behavior". My habits never changed... I simply forgot the reason why I performed this ritual. I did not even know until now it was a ritual. I have learned quite a lot from Baxter

Baxter explains superstitions and rituals at length "Despite the fact that the person may have matured both physically and mentally, there is still a fear within them that if they do not perform a certain ritual, bad luck will befall them. The superstition almost becomes a ritual, because people are unable to rid themselves of an act that `could' bring about a spell of bad fortune. "

In my early teens, I found a job as an elevator operator. The elevator only showed twelve floors, however there was a thirteenth floor. We, the operators, were asked not to speak about the thirteenth floor or even ride there without protection. We were told about the horror of the number thirteen. I was only a kid, yet of all the jobs I had, I can think of none more frightening than the evil of the thirteenth floor. The notion was taught to me, I never considered such a thing on my own. Baxter speaks about the number thirteen, and its origin. Specifically. Friday the thirteenth.

"Friday the 13th - This date has been seen as unlucky for many years and there is even an official name for a specific phobia of this date - paraskevidekatriaphobia. It is interesting to note that in the Bible, many negative events happened on a Friday such as Eve tempting Adam with the forbidden fruit, the start of the Great Flood, the destruction of the Temple of Solomon and more significantly of course, the crucifixion of Christ himself. These events demonstrate that there may well have been a long standing association between Fridays and bad luck, and when you combine Friday with the number 13 - which has its own set of bad luck associations covered later - the effect is magnified."

You will gain a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding body language. You will learn about the power of body language, 5 Essential Body Language Terms, how to read facial emotions and identify concealment. You will learn how to recognize the body language of liars and far more. In fact, it may make you take a look at yourself. What messages are you sending to others? It is my hope that you will read this magnificent book for the answers to many unanswered questions.

Another hit for Craig Baxter and his Body Language books. His new book on human behaviour which includes superstitions and body language once again kept me intrigued and wanting more. Craig gives us an in-depth look at some interesting superstitions including the Ouija Board, sport star superstitions as well as stones/gems like opals (my birthstone) diamonds and how people look upon them as bad luck in some instances. Craig also looks at emotions, from happiness, humility, anger and the different ways they come out and why. He continues with how body language and emotions, etc can affect how we move, and our facial expressions. Craig teaches us once again how to read facial and body expressions based on situations. Craig continues to write incredible books and I hope he continues to do so in the future.

This book is full of too much wonderful and interesting information for me to write about without giving away the entire book, I can say that I have learned so much from his books and hope that everyone will purchase them and find out how we really communicate more with our facial expressions, bodies, etc rather than verbally. His books are extremely important right now because with social media and the internet on a steep climb, verbal and body communication is declining, we cannot communicate verbally or emotionally with each other online therefore books like his make us appreciate a "conversation" and perhaps think twice about what the other person is really saying.

Great job Craig and I can't wait to read your next book.
