This course really seemed more like a teaser for the teacher's live business consulting courses which were plugged regularly. Very little new information that was not intuitive and frequent mentions of how useful and transformative the courses are that the teacher gives to businesses he consults with.

In 12 thirty minutes lectures, Prof. Mark G. Frank a social psychologist from the State University of New York introduces the novice to nonverbal communication. The more the lectures advanced, the more I came under the impression that deciphering nonverbal ques are not as easy or exact as films and television programs wants to make us believe.
I came across some very interesting ideas during the six hours course. For quite some time I am aware of concepts such as a high context society and a low context society. I was not aware of mono-chronic time and poly-chronic time. I was impressed by the way in which Prof. Frank debunked some urban myths, such as the idea that 93% of what we communicate is non-verbal or that someone that looks you in the eyes can't lie.
In one regard the course fell a bit short of my expectations. When playing a board game like "The Sheriff of Nottingham," where identifying lying and cheating are part of the rules, I am still left in the cold. This course will not change you in a body language wizard! Some of the content is also quite well-known.
That said, I the course definitely made me look at certain aspects of non-verbal language in a new context. I would recommend it to someone who is an almost complete novice to deciphering nonverbal communication.

well balanced and with examples of application of the content from law enforcement to relationships, and from job applications to avoiding muggings.
