The Behavior Panel did an interview with Eric Hunley the other day. I was asked what books on body language and human behavior were valid with information that the reader could trust.
Here is a shortlist of some of the books from the Reference section of my book Understanding Body Language that comes out in November published by Rockridge Press. You can read any one of these and get enough valid information you can hang your hat on. I would suggest reading more than just one of these, and I can vouch for each book listed as well as each author. All of these can be found on Amazon.
