"Body Language" by David Lambert

This is a Collins Gem book (less than pocket sized). It did not tell me much that was really interesting; a lot was obvious. If someone shuffles with their shoulders hunched they may feel depressed. It explained a lot of deliberate gestures and the cultural differences but what I was really after was to find those expressions, gestures and postures which betray what we are thinking when we are trying to lie. There was a short section about this near the end of the book but it wasn't enough.
