Can you tell if someone likes you? How close are you to other people?
What do they see in you? Are you a good judge of others?

All of us live for our relationships. All of us depend on them - ranging from the most cursory to the most intimate. Yet how many of us have taken the trouble to discover what makes them work - or fail?

Eye to Eye is an authoritative guide to interpersonal behavior. It brings together some 27 experts from all over the world to explain, in clear, nontechnical language, the complex ways in which we relate to and communicate with one another. Chapters examine the ramifications of physical appearance, body language, social skills, work relationships, family relationships, friends, marriage, childhood and many, many other aspects of human interaction. In all, 30 topics are covered in depth.

Each chapter, written by a noted authority, distills the finding of numerous research studies into the latest word on the subject. And although heavily illustrated, each image has been carefully selected to reveal a particular "truth"… and to reward careful study. Each illustration demonstrates some secret, coded, common meaning: the signals to stop and the clues to find. Every chapter provides practical reference information that is immediately relevant.

Interspersed throughout are a number of charts, diagrams and practical tables. A lifespan profile and a key-concept index can be found in the first few pages of this unique and beautifully presented book.
