  • Do you wish you could decode people? Do you want a formula for charisma? Do you want to know exactly what to say to your boss, your date or your networking partner? You need to know how people work.

    As a human behaviour investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards studies the hidden forces that drive our behaviour patterns in her lab - and she's cracked the code.

    In Captivate she shares a wealth of shortcuts, systems and behaviour hacks derived from her research, to help you take charge of interactions at work and at home. You'll learn how to execute a social game plan to navigate any social situation; how to speed-read faces for 7 universal 'micro-expressions' that can be used to predict people's emotions; and much more besides.

    When you understand the laws of human behaviour you can get along with anyone. With Vanessa's help, you will never interact in the same way again.
