“This book has been thoroughly thought out and depicts many body language signals that are commonly missed. By taking these forgotten signals into account, our interactions with people can be dramatically improved, and many opportunities will no longer be lost. The visuals of the book are aesthetically pleasing as well as incredibly specific, chock full of detailed breakdowns that unlock the secret language of women.”

“Wow I just finished the book. It was amazing! It was so much better than any other article or book I’ve ever read. The pictures were awesome, you did a great job of explaining things clearly and you covered every aspect of body language. I think anyone interested in learning about non verbal cues should buy this book, it’s totally worth it.
It uncovered clues I never thought existed such as her showing interest by touching and proximity. It’s honestly a great read, I really enjoyed it and I hope everyone knows about this book because there is nothing like it. Nothing!”

Quote: “As for the pick up, I have never had much success with women. I could talk to them but could never get past LJBF [Let’s Just Be Friends]. I don’t know about being a MPUA [Master Pick Up Artist] but learning the skills I think is worthwhile.”
“I was very fortunate to get to read an early version of The Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language. It’s targeted mainly at PUA’s [pick up artist’s] yet I can see it being useful for others too. Especially those who want to depict male and female interactions during courtship or just trying to tell a visual story without words. Both parties will benefit immensely from this e-book, since it VISUALLY shows some of the indicators of interest and disinterest, what different body poses mean, how to stand properly and a lot more. Eye movement and eye contact is covered in detail as well. One thing I was unaware of before the book, was proximity. Apparently the distance you are from someone indicates your interest. The book itself is somewhat short, yet it covers a great deal of territory. The length of the book, under 90 pages, is an advantage because it can be read through quickly for a refresher. Some of the info in the book is repeated for effect since it is so important it demands repetition. After reading this book you should be able to understand much more of what a person says, since body language is at least 50% of what is said. Are you equipped to understand it? “

Quote: “I agree that talking about body language in a social setting can make other’s feel self conscious. Your knowledge of body language is best left unsaid.”
I’ve researched body language online, but the information was all very general. This e-book specifically caters to males and the dating game. It details the critical information males need to know in order to ensure their success with women: What to do, what not to do and how to read women. The photos showing the social interactions between a man
and a woman are on point. I now have a better understanding of how to and how not to initially approach a woman in a social setting, how to and how not to stand next to a woman and haptic [touch] communication. I plan on browsing through this e-book before each social gathering I attend, until I have it memorized.

Quote: “I am very interested in body language after reading the definitive book of body language. After reading that book two months ago it has been hard not to notice everyone’s movements. Body language is needed to understand the full aspects of communication. I believe the more understanding of body language the better I will succeed in life.”
If you want a book that is specifically made for PUA’s, then Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language by Christopher Philip is a must read. Body language has been said to be 80 percent of communication, which means reading this book will take your game to the next level. This book has tons of pictures so you can fully grasp the concept of body language. The combination of pictures and text makes the book more interesting and appealing. This book also has a great flow which makes it easy and fast to read.
Most body language books I have read have been more directed towards daily business life and public speaking and not directed towards social dynamics. This book teaches you what to do and not to do. It will show you signals that girls give that you would have never recognized before. It gives you descriptions on eye movements, body positioning, proximity, tone, building rapport and much more. And plus the two HB’s [Hot Babes] are an added bonus to look at while reading. This book is a must read!

Quote: “I read, study, practice and do all of these things as an integral part of my life. I became interested in dating and pick-up after a long-term relationship of mine had ended. I thought that there MUST be an intellectual way to going about getting what I wanted in women. I am a very scientifically-based-in-thought person, and loved what the community had to offer on social dynamics and why and how they work.”

Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language (BLP) offers a unique perspective on body language as it relates to the ‘mating dance’ between a man and a woman during the courting phase of a relationship, including the approach and invitations to approach. The book encompasses reactions and changes in a woman’s body language which occur during a conversation. If a man can learn and understand these, they will drastically aid him in steering any situation to his advantage.
BLP taught me how to look for positive and negative body displays on a global level. Instead of only looking at body leaning, rocking, posture, and fidgeting (like many other books do), this book gave me an in-depth perspective on everything to look for from head to toe. Included are what a woman is doing with her fingers, toes, leg position, and blinking, as well as many gross observations on proximity and variations of eye contact. Heck! Even how she chews her food is covered.
I learned how the exchange of body language creates a ‘mating dance,’ which can be learned and played to gain the proper perspective of how women around you are feeling. This book shows you exactly how to create that dance and read the social situation correctly. It’s not just the postures a woman is in which dictate how she feels, it is how those are directed that matters. The book showed me how to distinguish which of the indicators of interest a woman is showing are directed toward you, instead of toward another man, saving me lots of time in meeting girls. I can now approach women who WANT me to approach them, and not waste time with those who are not interested or unavailable.
Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language takes an in-depth look at female body language and body reactions to social stimuli. Where the book separates itself from others of its kind is in the perspective of male body language and personality traits which have the power to provoke specific social reactions from women. The book gives detailed explanations, as well as extensive and amazingly accurate pictorial sections, of both male and female positive and negative body language. The photos are also placed in a social courtship setting adding to the realism. BLP showed me how to look at the body as a whole instead of looking at specific parts to assess interest. Mixed signals are also addressed, and decoded in the book, which allowed me to find the true underlying tone of the situation without paying undue attention to less significant gestures.
Overall, the book is unlike any other body language book I’ve read. There is a logical progression showing what to look for in a woman to determine her level of interest, how the level of her interest changes (positively or negatively), what can be read in her body language, how to display your own body language in a way which is non-threatening and attractive to women, and most importantly, the ‘mating dance,’ which is crucial to understand if one is to successfully use body language to gain the advantage. The pictures used to demonstrate body language are very realistic and are not dramatized for the purpose of show. They represent ‘the real thing,’ whereas many books only show exaggerated postures and are not practical in everyday life.
This book has given me a unique and deep understanding of the role of body language in the courtship interaction.

Quote: “I have always been interested in body language and I believe it is part of a door that has not really been opened and would love to be a pioneer in the field. I have lived in 7 countries and am fluent in 3 languages. I am interested in reading, photography, DJing, clubbing and off course SARGING! I got into the game after feeling sick of being the “best friend” and little by little have been putting the puzzle together.”
I recommend this book to anyone that wants to take his game to a new level. I can vouch for this book because soon after reading it, I have, on a personal level, boosted my ability to read anything from intricate body language indicators of interest to subtle things that I can improve in my posture. After reading Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language one clearly understands the importance of body language not only in the world of seduction and women but in all social interactions. This book will show you ways to appear relaxed and in control that can obviously help in a wide range of things from job interviews to getting people to listen to you. The science of the body is one that isn’t given the respect that it deservers, and this book is one that clearly explains this science with a descriptive writing style and awesome illustrative photographs. So gentlemen make your life a bit easier and pick this book up, and like me, you will see that not everything a woman says is coming out of her mouth.
Side: I really enjoyed the book I tried to look for some criticism and I honestly can’t. I read a book recently called “The Definitive Book of Body Language” but was barley as informative as your book and the girl in the pictures is really hot! haha Anyway I hope my review can help you guys out and I will defiantly spread the word about your book.

Quote: “When I was a little kid growing up in Poland, an uncle of mine taught me a couple basic illusions. My interest in magic did not flourish until my brother bought me David DeAngelo’s Double Your Dating program. I devoted myself to solving the mystery of attraction. I also finally realized my tricks’ potential during pickup. Although I now perform magic at a restaurant and tend to stay away from illusions in my sarges. Instead, I enjoy telling women what I’ve learned about them by reading their body language.”
Overall I was very pleased with The Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language and have drawn a great deal of knowledge from it. The photographs offer an excellent help to the beginners and more advanced students alike and are a feature I have not yet seen in other books on body language.
I think of the book more as an encyclopedia than a book you read once and are forever done with. The neat structuring makes it easy to find the relevant paragraphs – and trust me, you will want to read sections of this book several times. While I have been both studying and applying body language for a while, the list of signals I am currently looking for have nearly doubled by reading this book. If you want to know how to communicate interest non-verbally, or better yet, to find out whether someone is interested in you, you have to read this book.
While it makes detailed and valid points on the basic body language of attraction, I hope Christopher will go on to develop more advanced topics such as proximity in a sequel. He obviously has a lot of knowledge on the field and I am happy he’s willing to share it with the world. Overall, I consider the Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language as must-read for not just aspiring pick-up artists, but men and women worldwide interested in non-verbal communication especially concerning male-female relationships.

Quote: I’ve been in the [PUA] community for slightly more than a year, but I have gone from ugly nerd to reasonable player (okay, not a master yet, but good enough). I’ve changed looks, worked on my body language and I read a lot. I admit that being very tall and slender, I still have some body language issues that I am working on.
I have read a couple of books about body language. One thing that has annoyed me was how they all either had some sketchy illustrations or just one or two poor quality photos to go with the text. This is where Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language stands out. It actually gets two things very right – it describes the body language especially from the “boy meets a girl” perspective and does it in a very visual way (lots of photographs to go with the text). The author does a good job of explaining the meaning behind a lot of body poses and gestures and they are illustrated with shots of these poses in action. Although they are sometimes exaggerated, it makes it so much easier to read and so much more effective to remember them.
There is a certain number of very interesting points made in the book – I knew some of the tricks, but I did learn one or two new things and was really thrilled to field-test them in a club environment and see them work. All in all, this book won’t miraculously turn you into a ladies man or make you a walking scanner deciphering people’s thoughts based on their body language but it certainly will draw your attention to a couple of interesting details, which you might overlook otherwise – and this can sometimes make all the difference. Overall, it’s a good position to add to you arsenal in the gender war.

Most normal people have a limited supply of money. This makes people unwilling to buy products they are unfamiliar with. Personally, I am no different than the rest. I am always skeptical of products which claim to be good, but have no guarantee. After reading through Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language, I can firmly say that it is a good buy for both men and women. There are many reasons why this E-book is the best I’ve read on the subject of body language. Of these reasons, three stand out in my mind: the focused content, illustrations, and the price.
When one aspires to get better at attracting the opposite sex, he or she quickly realizes that words are not enough. As the book explains, while you are verbally talking to the person one is attracted too, one’s body is also speaking. If the two messages do not match up, the person on the other end will pick this up on a subconscious level. When this discrepancy happens, the probability of success is drastically reduced. Of the many books of body language I have perused, this is the only one that focuses on the body language pertaining to attraction while, at the same time, giving the basics any new reader needs to know. This combination of broad and attraction-specific body language makes the content unique to any other book I’ve read. However, as the book suggests, dialogue can only communicate so much.
This fact caused the author to illustrate every point made with pictures and examples. Not only is the reader benefiting from the knowledge, but the reader can now see what it looks like first hand. With other body language books, the reader is left to find examples of what he read in the field. This book takes the extra step to make sure the reader understands why it happens and what it looks like. The latter is often overlooked in all other body language literature.
The final reason to buy the book is the price. What is the cost of being the most attractive individual possible? For a mere forty dollars [$9.95], a person can read this book and immediately see differences in interactions with the opposite sex. The book outlines very basic things that any individual can do with little work to improve their success dramatically. After reading this book, one will save much more then just money from the drinks he did not have to buy to get the girl, he will also save time. He will no longer be the sap buying the girl drinks and will transform into the guy who gets drinks bought for him. These three reasons are why I recommend this book to everyone I know.

Quote: Subtext is the language of Mastery. Less is more than a truism, it’s a mantra for those who wish to ascend to our highest potential. Learning subtext in it’s most basic form (Body Language) will awaken a new perspective and instruct us on when and where to communicate with complete decisiveness and quality of purpose.
Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language will teach you a reality altering skill. A skill which will hone your cognitive ability to read what someone is speaking physically, but more importantly, emotionally without them ever uttering a single word.
Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language is a science and explorative modality which can give fruitful insight into machinations, as yet, unspeakable. Once one is adept at reading sub-textual body talk, this awareness will
catapult your communicative capabilities and allow an insight into another person’s motives and agenda.
The e-book is one of the most poignant and articulate tools from which one can acquire the ability to read, damn near prophetically, that which someone is truly saying as opposed to the verbiage coming from behind their teeth. Subtlety and charm are another aspect of body language which will signal to everyone within your immediate proximity the infinite power of Presence. Breathing techniques, Mirroring, Posture, Balance and Symmetry are each lessons laid out in perfect order for you to learn and master. To become a master of your relationship persona it’s vital to understand what a woman is saying, especially when she doesn’t speak.
Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language will demonstrate with wonderful visual acuity, extremely detailed information regarding the varying body personalities and non-verbal languages between the sexes. You’ll be well schooled in addressing verbiage from her stance and what her intentions are, as each body part has been sliced apart and thoroughly explained. How to adjust mood with your own body language is another useful point which is also conveyed with photos and description.
The practicality and longstanding usefulness of this book are a great value and I wholeheartedly recommend it to my students. This book is not merely for those in “The Game” but will be of use for anyone who wishes to enlarge their perspective in every familial/societal/pseudo-sexual relationship.
I look forward to more of Christopher Philip’s work.

Quote: “I’m a simple man, I chose to study to be a PUA [pick-up-artist] because I wanted to understand women better and learn to not be so impressed by their sheer beauty.”
To start off with, I think Section 2 was very informative. After putting this to work in the field I’ve seen most of these cues mainly from my wingman being too forward or trying too hard to get a girls attention. I’ve notice that when you first start talking to women that they are already defensive. It’s like they are measuring you out, and the more comfortable they get, the more they will comply and get used to you being around. I have also used a defensive posture on some girls who get too close and it seems to send out the right signal, “Back away!”
In section 3 I thought the part where Dave is blocking all the exits from Scarlett was interesting. I have actually seen this happen myself, partially because my wingman doesn’t understand or know how to read body language yet. It’s a work in progress for him. I also found this true; that women will approach from the side or behind, because as a man I really don’t mind, but women in the field will usually approaching from the front. I’ve also seen the other signals. I’ve seen women fixing their blouse and pulling up their skirt [the skirt hike] right in my face. Others don’t give off signals at all, some change their posture and others gave me some good attention.
I found a lot of the touching captions in Section 4 mostly happen to me on the dance floor since I’m a well groomed dancer. Women seem to get comfortable with me and always send out these signals by touching my butt, my shoulder, or rubbing their fingers on my stomach. I also see the girls throughout a venue who send guys signals of disinterest, but they don’t see it like I do. They will cross their legs and yawn or checking the time. The best is when their friends take them away from you because your wingman can’t keep the obstacle’s [any other person interfering, usually a friend of the girl being picked up] attention. I’ve seen many of the defensive postures while working in the field. It’s amazing on how accurate this book is on covering that. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the IOI’s [indicators of interest] from the IOD’s [indicators of disinterest] but maybe I’m just reading into the postures too much. I’ve seen my wingman invade a girl’s personal space while he had his drink over his chest [defensive posture] and she had hers over her breast [indicating defensiveness]. In that case, she is only giving him her ear and not making eye contact in the interaction. The book gave me confidence to tell him what he was doing wrong.
I have a lot of experience with women mirroring my movements while I’m dancing and talking to them like in Section 5. This is about 95% accurate in predicting interest and for some reason when I see this or notice it happening around me, I keep thinking of animal planet. But that’s another story! I notice I get strong EC [eye contact] from a girl on the dance floor, it almost seems seductive, and this section was very accurate in showing this females interest. I’ve experienced having legs crossed towards me, the head tilt while on the dance floor, and women exposing their neck, especially when I’m behind them. I haven’t yet seen “the pigeon toe” or “the pointing toe” but it’s probably been there in front of my face all along but I was too stupid to notice. I’ve also noticed hair tossing and women playing with their hair which is crazy to see because you know you have sparked their interest. I’ve seen little of neck touching and that’s probably my fault for not noticing. A lot of Section 5 I haven’t seen for myself yet. I think most of this would happen when you’re trying to build comfort with a woman and see the signals as they happen. I’ve had “the pat” while embracing in the last week, so I’ll conclude by saying that that section was very accurate.
Christopher Philip did a great job on describing the dynamics of body language. Overall, the ebook Body Language Project: Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language was a great help and I recommend it to anyone reading this right now. Body language is 90% of the game, if you don’t know it…you’re gonna blow it.
