Vidar Hansen is a former policeman and investigator, known as Norway’s answer to Sherlock Holmes. Criminals refused to be questioned by him because they thought he could read their minds. He has also won the Police Prize for arresting the largest number of criminals in Norway. He has an astonishing capacity to interpret people’s body language and unconscious signals.
Few people are aware of their own body language and even fewer are able to control it. Our posture, movements, voice and facial expressions give us away. Did you know, for example, that enthusiastic body language can contribute to success? The more clearly you express enthusiasm and joy, the more infectious they will be for other people. This book will enable you to understand other people better, and improve your own communication.
Vidar tells us how he can reveal who threw a bottle at the police car without having seen who did it; how he calms people in a crisis; how he exposes lies, or guesses what his girlfriend has bought him for his birthday. Fascinating stories show that body language has altered sports results, politics and the course of history – for example in the 1938 meeting between Hitler and Chamberlain, where body language prevented the lie from being revealed.
