Read this book. Driver’s much-anticipated debut exceeds expectations; it’s a smart, funny, innovative page-turner that can be applied to both your personal and professional success.  Her breakthrough discovery of the New Body Language has become the cornerstone to Wyndham’s recruiting and sales techniques.  Janine has taken us to the next level with her cutting-edge approach. Everyone NEEDS this book!” —Jeanna Callahan, recruiting manager for Wyndham, #1 vacation ownership company in the world

 “Insightful.  A bold, powerful, mind-blowing book. Driver uses fresh behind-the-scenes stories of law enforcement as a springboard for exploring the often misunderstood world of nonverbal communication.  With Driver’s 7-Second Fixes and playful exercises, in less than a week, opportunities and experiences will begin to open up for you that were simply not possible before.”  —Debra Fine, bestselling author of The Fine Art of Small Talk and The Fine Art of Big Talk

At a time when you want to be bulletproof at work, secure in your relationship, and content in your own skin, it’s more important than ever to be aware of what your body is saying so that you’ll learn how to say exactly what you want, and nothing that you don’t intend. Janine Driver shows you the skills she learned to stay alive during her fifteen years as a body-language expert at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in her first book, YOU SAY MORE THAN YOU THINK: A 7-Day Plan For Using the New Body Language to Get What You Want (Crown, February 16, 2010).

We interact with other people all day long, in every meaningful moment in our lives. In fact, over 50 percent of what we communicate to others is nonverbal. But we don’t always realize what message others are receiving through our body language,  which leads to confusion and frustration. Without well-attuned social perception, we experience repeated failures: losing to the competition, job interviews gone bad, failed dates, trampled trust. By learning to hone that perception, read other people better, and communicate more effectively, we can improve every aspect of our lives. 

With sass and a keen eye, Driver debunks the 7 Major Myths other experts swear are fact, and instead, gives readers novel, useful, science-backed information on reading people including:

THE MYTH: When people lie to us they give less eye contact.
THE MYTH: Your friends can read your body language and know when you’re angry.
THE MYTH: Our eyes go up and to the right when people are withholding the truth or lying.
THE MYTH: Happy people command power and attention simply by smiling just before they meet new people.

In YOU SAY MORE THAN YOU THINK Driver has crafted a 7-day plan for using this New Body Language to help you achieve whatever your goal may be based on you—your life, your history, your habits.  Starting with your own comfort level and using your experiences, sense, and gut instincts, the program helps to develop your natural body language ability so that you gain more confidence to read people and to use body language masterfully. Her book also includes 7-Second Fixes, keys to reading any face, room, or situation in 7 seconds or less, as well 95 black-and-white photos of do’s and don’ts to help you on your way.

Driver is a national media favorite, having appeared on the Today show, CBS Sunday Morning, Fox Weekend News, Rachael Ray, and more, and with A-list clients including Coca-Cola, AOL, Wyndham Hotels, Booz Allen, Hard Rock, Georgetown University, and George Washington University it’s clear she knows what she’s talking about. 

Bottom line: If Driver could use these techniques to outsmart white-collar criminals in her days working for the ATF, you can use them to discipline your teen, score a first date, or get that sought-after promotion. The New Body Language program featured in the book will help you tap into your natural ability to read others accurately, apply body language appropriately, and gain a more confident attitude. Whether you’re seeking to become a stronger leader, want to learn how to manage your nerves better, or simply want to find better dating prospects, YOU SAY MORE THAN YOU THINK is the guide to help you strengthen interpersonal relationships and get what you want out of life.
