This work deserves a thumbs up for its appeal to a broad audience.—Booklist—
If François Caradec’s delightfully idiosyncratic Dictionary of Gestures is to be believed, almost all of them amount to some species of mortal insult or erotic invitation somewhere in the world.
[a] huge contemporary relevance, helping to avoid misunderstandings in an increasingly multicultural society. This book could even save lives.
A strangely eclectic reference manual….an eyeopener.
