Die Autorin zeigt, wie Köpersprache wahrgenommen wird und welche Formen der Körpersprache es gibt (Gesten, Bewegungen etc.), wie sie eingesetzt werden und was sie bedeuten.

Angefangen mit der erhobenen Augenbraue bis zum wippenden Fuß erklärt Elizabeth Kuhnke, was die Körpersprache unseres Gegenübers sagt und was unsere Körpersprache über uns verrät. Dabei erläutert sie, wie der Einsatz von Requisiten (Brille, Schlüssel, Kuli etc.) die Körpersprache noch unterstützt. Sie erfahren die Bedeutung des räumlichen Abstands (»Bannmeile« und deren Überschreitung) und erhalten Tipps für die richtige Körpersprache beim Flirten oder im Vorstellungsgespräch. Ein Kapitel ist dem Verständnis der Körpersprache anderer Kulturkreise gewidmet.
