Learn how to spot the lies and deceptions of our politicians in action.
You can’t turn on the television, check your phone, or scroll through social media without being besieged with political headlines and the "Who’s Who" of today’s news. With so much spoon-fed to us by the media, fake news, and from politicians themselves, it’s time to take the reins and control what you see, feel, and know so you can make informed political choices in our hot, political environment.
In The Body Language of Politics, body language expert Dr. Donna Van Natten provides you with the tools and resources that you need to analyze movements of today's most notable politicians. She looks at some of the looming figures in our political landscape—Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, among others—and analyzes their physical behaviors, breaking down the lies and deceptions embedded in their everyday movements. Further, Dr. Van Natten challenges you to understand your own emotional biases towards certain politicians, and examine how that may skew your read of their body language. Finally, she confronts the gendered stereotypes that we often apply to our nation's leaders, examining how those labels play into our opinions of politicians.
Clear, concise, and filled with expert knowledge, The Body Language of Politics will help you make an informed decision at the voting booth.

A fun, frightening, and always fascinating look into the psyche of a madman: the Clown Prince of Crime, the Harlequin of Hate—The Joker!
Since he first fought Batman in 1940, The Joker has evolved into one of popular culture’s most complex and confounding psychological creations: both a criminal mastermind and an unhinged psychopath now starring in his own film. In The Joker Psychology: Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them, Dr. Travis Langley, author of the bestselling Batman and Psychology, returns to Gotham City to explore the twisted psyche of this great supervillain, as well as the personalities who are inexorably drawn to it. Paying special attention to the strange dynamics of relationships like the one between The Joker and Harley Quinn, this collection of 15 chapters (including some very special interviews with the people who brought The Joker and Harley Quinn to life in comics and onscreen), this collection analyzes:
- Why a bright, laughing monster who looks like a clown could be the ultimate antagonist to a grim, brooding hero who looks like a monster.
- The relationship between a therapist and her patient—and what happens when a therapist crosses the line, as Harley Quinn does when she falls for The Joker.
- How a smart person could fall for the most dangerous of criminals.
- Why so many fans find Harley Quinn inspirational.
- How different kinds of therapy could (or could not) help twisted minds like Mister J and Harley Quinn.
- The development of a fictional character that so completely embodies psychopathy (including interviews with creators who have shaped The Joker's character over the years).

The internationally bestselling guide to "mind-reading" by influencing those around you via non-verbal communication, from human psychology expert Henrik Fexeus.
How would you like to know what the people around you are thinking? Do you want to network like a pro, persuade your boss to give you that promotion, and finally become the life of every party? Now, with Henrik Fexeus's expertise, you can.
The Art of Reading Minds teaches you everything you need to know in order to become an expert at mind-reading. Using psychology-based skills such as non-verbal communication, reading body language, and using psychological influence, Fexeus explains how readers can find out what another person thinks and feels– and consequently control that person’s thoughts and beliefs. Short, snappy chapters cover subjects such as contradictory signs and what they mean, how people flirt without even knowing it, benevolent methods of suggestion and undetectable influence, how to plant and trigger emotional states, and how to perform impressive mind-reading party tricks. Fexeus gives readers practical (and often fun) examples of how to effectively mind-read others and use this information, benevolently, both in personal and professional settings.
