Peoplewatching is the culmination of a career of watching people - their behaviour and habits, their personalities and their quirks. Desmond Morris shows us how people, consciously and unconsciously, signal their attitudes, desires and innermost feelings with their bodies and actions, often more powerfully than with their words.
Consisting of his timeless classic "Manwatching," completely revised and updated, with much new material gathered since the book's original publication, and for the first time incorporating the text of Bodywatching, this new edition is set to become the definitive "body language bible."
Lavishly illustrated throughout with line drawings and two 16pp colour plate sections, "Peoplewatching" is a handsomely designed and fitting tribute to one of the most thought-provoking and popular scientists of his day.
