"A practical and savvy guide for gleaning what people are really thinking by understanding the codes of communication –– verbal, facial, body language, and speech. This book helps readers fend off negative people and attract positive people."
––Gavin de Becker, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Gift of Fear and Fear Less

"I feel a little strange recommending this book because it reveals so many of my secrets. Dr. Lillian Glass clearly and effectively communicates the complex subtleties of the human psyche. Understanding nonverbal language is the essential skill in any profession that involves communication. This book is the best primer on the topic of nonverbal communication I have ever read. Success as a trial attorney requires intuition and the ability to use it. However, most trial lawyers I know are unable to articulate how they do what they do with juries. Applying the knowledge contained in this book almost guarantees increased success."
––Geoffrey N. Fieger, noted trial attorney

"As a regular contributor to and commentator on Court TV, Dr. Lillian Glass has repeatedly demonstrated her exceptional professional skills of reading people in our on-air coverage of several trials. In her book, I know What You’re Thinking, she shares with readers these skills, which could prove to be invaluable in every aspect of your life."
––Nancy Grace, Court TV

"I Know What You’re Thinking by Lillian Glass is a must read for everyone, whether they are in business or not. How wonderful it is to be able to read another person’s face, speech, and body movements to assist you in assessing that person’s integrity. Applause to Dr. Glass for giving the public such an important work."
––Arnold Kopelson, motion picture producer

"You need to read people, especially now––whether you’re getting into a relationship, making a financial investment, or for your own safety. Since I’m a private investigator who has dealt with many celebrities over the years, if I hadn’t learned how to read people I’d be dead by now. In I Know What You’re Thinking, Dr. Lillian Glass shows you the secrets of reading people to improve every aspect of your life. This book is a winner!"
––Don Crutchfield, celebrity private investigator and author of Protect Yourself at All Times and Confessions of a Hollywood P.I.

I could hardly read this book, its full of so much negativity. Please Dr glass if you ever write something like this again make sure you "understand" that if a person acts in a certain way that does not please you that does not mean that they "hate" you, that just means you have to confront that person and clear out the doubts and you totally ignored the fact that a person can also act in a certain way temporarily because of what they're going through in their life.
