A master at deciphering both verbal and nonverbal language, Van Natten (founder, president, & CEO, Accountability Measures) here teaches readers how to decode the messages and movements of today’s politicians, while addressing forms of transformational and transactional leadership styles and ways of identifying subliminal threats and the plying of emotions. The author further acknowledges how individual bias impacts our judgement of others and how prescriptive gender beliefs influence party allegiance, employing a rich cache of images of current politicians to aid in the process of analyzing differing opinions and points of view.
VERDICT Timely and instructive.
