The You Code

James Moore (and others)

Did you know that the way you eat your food will be sending subliminal messages out about your sexual habits? Or that the way you decorate your desk, could be helping your boss decide about that promotion or pay rise? We're all aware of the subtle messages of design and marketing but what about the signals you send out about yourself and your personality?

The You Code is the book that answers all these questions, uncovering the hidden meaning behind the simplest of choices. Judi James, with co-writer and journalist James Moore, pulls no punches in her addictive and entertaining book which gets to the nub of who you really are, telling you more about yourself than you ever wanted to know, as well as providing an intriguing insight into the people around you.

From your favourite TV programme to the type of coffee you drink, even down to the filling in your sandwich, The You Code is a must for anyone who wants to find out more about themselves and, more importantly, what everyone else thinks of them.

The Body Language Bible

Judi James

We live in an image-conscious society where looking the best tends to win over being the best. Human beings judge each other subconsciously in less than three seconds, based on body language alone.

Filled with fascinating psychological insights, plus a whole raft of down-to-earth quick-fix tips, The Body Language Bible takes the reader through the minefield of self-marketing and image: how to read it and how to project it. In her inimitable straightforward style, Judi unravels the secrets to interpreting our movements and what we are really saying with our body language, whether consciously or not. She teaches you what we mean with our movements, how to interpret them and then shows you how to get what you want, whether you're doing business, making friends or falling in love.

The Body Language Bible is an intriguing read, providing a unique mix of body language and communication psychology (voice and the impact of words).

Poker Face

Judi James

Understanding body language is vital for success in any walk of life, but in the game of poker it can mean the difference between winning or losing. Unlike other card games that rely primarily on luck for a win, poker is predominantly a game of skill, and a major part of that skill is the ability to read your opponent's body language while keeping in control of your own signals.

The art of reading body language is complex and fascinating and Poker Face takes the reader through each stage in a comprehensive and entertaining way. Written for both the experienced player and the beginner, this book explains each stage of lying and bluffing, from the casual beginner's lies to the behaviour of the lie expert.

Fast-paced, lively and funny, this book is a must for any serious player.
