From internationally bestselling author and retired FBI agent Joe Navarro, a groundbreaking look at leadership and how to differentiate yourself by mastering the five powerful principles exceptional individuals live by.

Bestselling author and globally renowned behavior expert and business consultant Joe Navarro reveals for the first time the five unequaled qualities that set exceptional individuals and great leaders apart, and how you can use these principles to stand out and distinguish yourself. 

Through commitment to self-mastery in the things we do each day (“to lead others, you must first demonstrate that you can lead yourself”); keen observational skills using techniques Joe used in the FBI to decode people and situations with laser-like precision; proven verbal and nonverbal communication skills that persuade and inspire; and action that builds shared purpose and leads by example, we arrive at the most necessary ingredient of all for interpersonal and business relations: “whoever provides psychological comfort wins.” 

Worthy to Lead culminates Joe’s more than four decades of work analyzing human behavior, including a quarter of a century in counterespionage and high-stakes behavioral assessment, conducting over 10,000 interviews, and advising major corporations on best practices. 

Including case studies from business and history, compelling stories from Joe’s life and career, and cutting-edge science, Worthy to Lead empowers you to change how you see yourself, influence how others see you, and prepare, should the opportunity arise, to be not just ready to lead, but worthy to lead. 

From the world’s #1 body language expert* comes the essential book for decoding human behavior

Joe Navarro has spent a lifetime observing others. For 25 years, as a Special Agent for the FBI, he conducted and supervised interrogations of spies and other dangerous criminals, honing his mastery of nonverbal communication. After retiring from the bureau, he has become a sought-after public speaker and consultant, and an internationally bestselling author. Now, a decade after his groundbreaking book What Every BODY is Saying, Navarro returns with his most ambitious work yet. The Dictionary of Body Language is a pioneering “field guide” to nonverbal communication, describing and explaining the more than 400 behaviors that will allow you to gauge anyone’s true intentions.

Moving from the head down to the feet, Navarro reveals the hidden meanings behind the many conscious and subconscious things we do. Readers will learn how to tell a person’s actual feelings from subtle changes in their pupils; the lip behaviors that betray concerns or hidden information; the many different varieties of arm posturing, and what each one means; how the position of our thumbs when we stand akimbo reflects our mental state; and many other fascinating insights to help you both read others and change their perceptions of you.

Readers will turn to The Dictionary Body Language again and again—a body language bible for anyone looking to understand what their boss really means, interpret whether a potential romantic partner is interested or not, and learn how to put themselves forward in the most favorable light.


 Although terrorism is as old as conflict, it remains a misunderstood novelty to many law enforcement officers in the United States. The author is one of the few American investigators equipped to provide an in-depth analysis of the topic. He spent twenty-five years working and later instructing in the area of counterintelligence and counterterrorism, and he translates this experience into an important guide. Readers of this book are taken on a journey through the investigative process, and they will come away with both a better understanding of terrorism and material to enhance their investigative skills. His intention is to help the reader clearly understand what is at the core of every terrorist, here or abroad, having had the opportunity to personally analyze, investigate, interview, and arrest terrorists. He also shares with the reader the most effective ways to interview the terrorist once captured. The material in this book is presented exactly as it has been taught to FBI Special Agents at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia as well as members of the Intelligence Community to help with the investigations, identification, and interrogation of terrorists. In this second edition, there is a new section on “Interviewing Terrorists.” In this section the author discusses how to do a proper interview based on the key differences between a terrorist or enemy combatant and a mere criminal. This is the first time these key techniques have been revealed. In the author’s words: “To successfully stop terrorism we must know how to spot the terrorist and get information out of them.” This book instructs the reader how to do this in the most effective manner. It will also be of interest to students, law enforcement professionals and those charged with homeland security and counterterrorism.
This updated and expanded new edition continues the theme of the first edition of emphasizing the interviewing skills that are critical for solving criminal investigations, obtaining information, and developing intelligence. This book is structured to assist law enforcement officers and security professionals to become better interviewers. The enhanced outline format of the text and the extended table of contents provide for easy reference, reading, and comprehension. The reader is quickly immersed into the dynamic OC theater of the interview, OCO exploring methods and techniques that enhance the interview process and increase the probability of a successful outcome. Material from this book is drawn from numerous sources, including formal interviewing models and decades of social and psychological research, as well as the authorsOCO over fifty years of combined law enforcement experience. Chapter topics include planning for the interview, the interview setting, props, assessing the interviewee, establishing dominance, rapport, Miranda warnings, detecting deception, nonverbal behavior, verbal clues to deception, the interviewing tool box, the anger cycle, breaking the impasse and other problems, and the end game. This book contains the latest verbal and nonverbal techniques to identify, with greater certainty, when interviewees are lying or concealing information. Written in a style law enforcement professionals prefer, the information is presented quickly, authoritatively, and to the point. While law enforcement, military, and intelligence personnel are the primary beneficiaries of this book, attorneys, human resource professionals, and anyone who makes inquiries of others on a daily basis will also find this book a useful resource."
