Summary

Master the art of non-verbal communication and enjoy the rich experience of understanding the signals people around you are constantly emitting. Ever wonder what that raised eyebrow, nervous twitch, or lazy slouch really means? Is it profound and important . . . or a meaningless quirk? In The Body Language Handbook, the authors use candid photos of real people in stress-free situations, then juxtapose them against others showing the same people responding to different kinds of stimulus to illustrate the power of body language. By going step-by-step from the holistic to the detailed, you’ll quickly discover when body language indicates something significant, and when an itch is just an itch. You’ll learn how to:  Identify the basic mechanics of human communication.  Observe what is culturally normal . . . and when “abnormal” matters.  Read changes in body language.  Avoid misunderstandings.  Project the right message.  Protect yourself from manipulation. The Body Language Handbook will not only teach you how to read the body language of others, it will also make sure you send the signals you want to send. Increase your power of communication at the office, in a courtroom or classroom, at home, and in any social setting—even the poker table!

    Considered to be sub-ordinated and sub-prime to the city, sub-urban areas receive little attention by researchers and designers. However, it's the rapidly growing areas outside the central cities that pose the biggest questions of the urban millennium: How can the scattered patchwork of urban areas and social spaces linked by networks of highways and public transportation function as a sustainable and livable urban environment? Answering this question requires understanding suburban spaces as heterogeneous urban areas with distinct local characteristics, qualities, and problems.
    
    Following this path, Variations of Suburbanism explores formation, characteristics, and trends of suburban areas all over the world. It provides insights on common features and differences of suburban governance, design, and infrastructure and discusses strategies to understand and design suburban areas in an increasingly sub-urbanizing world.

    The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams by Deepak Chopra 
     
    About 
    The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is a classic book by Deepak Chopra. Chopra has a way of taking deep spiritual concepts and simplifying them, offering you just the right metaphors and examples to help you grasp the ideas. And because of how easy it is to understand (relative to most spiritual texts) and apply the principles outlined by Chopra, practically anyone can learn from the Big Ideas in this book. The main idea behind the book is to develop a symbiotic relationship between spiritual success + financial success… the idea that the two don’t jive well with one another is often the cause of either moral or financial distress for a lot of people. Hopefully, this summary can help shed light on how important it is to marry these two types of success—spiritual as well as financial. 
     
    Tweetable Summary  
    There’s an easier way to get what you want from life—all you’ve gotta do is get in sync with nature + the universe.

    "The Unconstitutionality of Slavery" is a book by American abolitionist Lysander Spooner advocating the view that the United States Constitution prohibited slavery. This view was advocated in contrast to that of William Lloyd Garrison who advocated opposing the constitution on the grounds that it supported slavery. In the pamphlet, Spooner shows that none of the state governments of the slave states specifically authorized slavery, that the U.S. Constitution contains several clauses that are contradictory with slavery, that slavery was a violation of natural law, and that the intentions of the Constitutional Convention have no legal bearing on the document they created.

    An “entertaining [and] eminently readable” exploration of our home planet from the New York Times–bestselling author of Don’t Know Much About History(Publishers Weekly). 
     
    Geography is much more than naming countries on a map or memorizing state capitals. It’s the hub from which other disciplines radiate: meteorology, ecology, geology, oceanography, demographics, cartography, agricultural studies, economics, and political science. Yet many of us don’t know much about it. This fun and fascinating guide can change that! 
     
    In addition to presenting plenty of geographical trivia to impress your friends, Kenneth C. Davis explores 21st-century topics of global concern, including the role of the Internet and technology in transforming the lives of people around the world, how so-called developing nations develop, sustainability, and debates over climate change and evolutionary science. This completely revised and updated version of Don't Know Much About Geography is an illuminating grand tour of planet Earth.

    How many times have you seen a murder on the news or on a TV show like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and said to yourself, "How could someone do something like that?" Today, neuroscientists are imaging, mapping, testing, and dissecting the source of the worst behavior imaginable in the brains of the people who lack a conscience: psychopaths. Neuroscientist Dean Haycock examines the behavior of real life psychopaths and discusses how their actions can be explained in scientific terms, from research that literally looks inside their brains to understanding how psychopaths, without empathy but very goal-oriented, think and act the way they do. Some don't commit crimes at all, but rather make use of their skills in the boardroom. But what does this mean for lawyers, judges, psychiatrists, victims, and listeners—for anyone who has ever wondered how some people can be so bad. Could your nine-year-old be a psychopath? What about your co-worker? The ability to recognize psychopaths using the scientific method has vast implications for society, and yet is still loaded with consequences.Contains mature themes.
