I can't argue with the reviewers who point out that Knapp and Hall are two very distinguished scholars who know their stuff. I also can't argue with the fact that this book is very thorough, jam-packed with fascinating information, and one of the most useful guides you can get about the many different aspects of nonverbal human communication. What I will say is that this book is painfully DULL. The authors try to liven things up by adding a humorous story or a joke on occasion, but the feel of the book remains like a textbook in the worst possible sense. It's faceless, lifeless, and hard to finish. It's a crime that such fascinating information has to be delivered in such a dry, tiresome style. Get this book if you're interested in nonverbal, but also keep a cup of coffee handy.

this book is an excellent source for information on nonverbal communication. it presents some ideas in a way that I have never heard them discussed before. this book is a little difficult to read through if you are not interested in the subject, but the quality of the information is wonderful.
This is a terrific compilation of research into nonverbal communication. It is a thoroughly sourced review of writings on nonverbal topics, tending toward a psychological, academic tone.

Note: If you are seeking original research, Knapp's and Hall's book would be a good reference aid. However, in this work they are content to primarily synthesize the work of others. That said, they do a marvelous job of collecting and reporting on a wealth of valuable insights.
