Crime Signals helps you stop crime before it starts. David Givens, one of the nation's foremost experts in nonverbal communication, offers a fascinating and instructive look at crime, and into the tell-tale signs that give away all offenders―if you're trained to see them.

From the signals of a swindler to the warning signs that experts use to help thwart terrorism and violent crime, this book breaks down a criminal's body language into clear recognizable symbols:

• What does it mean if an assailant's face turns suddenly pale?

• Is a pat on the arm from a salesman a sign of sincerity, or an indication that you're about to get scammed?

• Does a liar make fewer hand gestures while they're lying―or more?

• If an aggressor shrugs his shoulders, should you be afraid?

This is the first book to offer a comprehensive guide to the body language of criminals. With amazing stories and instructive steps, it will change the way you view the world.

This book came recommended to me by another body language expert, Tonya Reiman, author of The Yes Factor: Get What You Want. Say What You Mean. The Secrets of Persuasive Communication as a good introduction to body language signals. It did not disappoint. The author uses stories and real life examples of criminal behaviors, from the 9/11 terrorists to white collar criminals such as Ivan Boesky (remember him?) to murderers such as OJ Simpson and Scott Peterson to illustrate what to look for to avoid becoming a victim yourself. People about to commit a crime or do harm telegraph the event, sometimes far in advance of the incident, but most people simply don't know what to look for. This book can teach you what to notice and how to put together the different signs to give you the awareness needed to turn that funny feeling into knowledge. If you are aware enough and use the information in this book it can literally save your life.

This is not the most intellectually rigorous book available on the subject, but it's not intended to be. This is a great introduction for the layperson and for those just starting to learn about body language. Some of the body language stuff might make you go "No kidding, that's obvious.", but it's only obvious in retrospect as people have been killed because they failed to notice this signs in real life. Pay heed, there is a pattern to how criminals perpetrating a given crime use their bodies and these patterns telegraph a lot.

The book looks at general body language signals - look at the eyes, hands, shoulders and lips and then goes into some detail on specific criminal activities, things like terrorism, con men, murderers, white collar criminals, drug addicts and gang members. For each of these groups there are similarities and some graphic differences. Knowing the markers for each of these types of crime will make you less of a victim.

Excellent info about detecting dishonest behavior from not only criminals, but also our everyday contacts and associates. The book is very well organized and easy to read with many interesting real life examples (e.g Donald Trump and Bill Clinton).

Mustard Forgotten

Best explanation of body language I've read in ten years.

Excellent insight into the mind and body language of today's criminal. A sorely needed work in today's world where you should be afraid to walk out to your car at the mall. The author makes it easy to spot the evildoers and the writing is presented so we can all understand it. Well done.

Great and thanks
I found this book almost too annoying to read. First, the author repeatedly and needlessly defines common words. On page 11: "A lie is a statement deliberately meant to give a wrong impression or to deceive. The English word 'lie' comes from the seven-thousand-year-old Indo-European root 'leugh'-, 'to tell a lie'."From page 89, "Silence is the condition or quality of being difficult or impossible to hear...". And most baffling, from pages 84-85, "The territorial sense of the word 'lawn' traces to its ancient Indo-European root, 'lendh'-, 'open land.' A lawn, according to 'The Nonverbal Dictionary', is 'a plot of carefully groomed grass, and any of several decorative artifacts (e.g., white pickets, or plastic pin flamingos) placed upon its surface'".
Second, he overuses and misuses medical terms, telling us about viseral (in the medical sense) tissues, scientifically naming the muscles that move the eyes, eyelids, mouth, etc., talking about the superior cervical ganglion. At one point, he asserts that O.J. Simpson's 'bulging neck veins' aren't really veins at all, but arteries (page 76). Wrong. The veins are the Jugular Veins, any noted pulsating is being transmitted from underlying Carotid Arteries. I've been in Medicine for 20 years, and I understand and appreciate these terms. However, in this type of book, there's no need to identify every nerve and muscle involved in criminal behavior, and certainly no excuse for misidentification.
Finally, on page 73: "While walking with my wife on a crowded sidewalk in Bologna, Italy, a tall, dark-haired young man approached me from the front. Suddenly, without any warning, he raised his right hand and poked a stiffened index finger firmly on my chest. There was no time to react. Had it been a knife or loaded gun, I might not be here today." OK, was the dark-haired man walking with your wife? Presumably not. Aside from the poor grammar, what is the point of this tepid story? This is a book about reading signs of an imminent attack in order to avoid injury. This little vignette would seem to give the opposite impression- that some attacks can't be predicted and leave 'no time to react'.
I forced myself to keep reading and found that the information on child predators in Chapter 6 had a bit of useful information. But really, where was the editor of this book?
The premise that personal danger can be perceived and acted on before any harm can be done is more convincingly treated in Gavin deBecker's books. The skill of reading facial language is treated much more rigorously in Paul Ekman's books. You can find one to fit just about any educational level. If you're really interested in this subject and want an intellectually and scientifically rigorous treatment, save you time and money and buy one of the above.
