I decided to study Physics in college because, since childhood I have been enchanted by the idea of perfection. However, while seeking a rational world, irrationality shadows every step of my journey. Is this a pursuit destined to end in a dilemma?

Our body talks. Mastering body language gives a strategic edge to a wide range of professionals, from corporate executives, doctors, lawyers, to masters of martial arts, scientists, executives in insurance, financial institutions and law enforcement, customs officers and spies. The newest findings of neuroscience, psychology, and technology are changing the way we look at the connection between mind and body, and how we interact with each other.

Our “nonverbal language” is now under scrutiny in all walks of life. Body Language exposes the power of nonverbal behaviour in areas we never thought of before. By the end of this journey, the viewer has discovered that the human body, moulded by hundreds of thousands of years of evolution, is still the most amazingly expressive medium in existence. And that new techniques for deciphering body language have wide ranging impacts on our personal lives and on issues as vital as world security.
