Many subjects have created waves in our quest to learn who we are and why we behave the way we do. One such subject which continues to fascinate people is that of Body Language– the science of studying non-verbal communication. It is one of the most important aspects of communication and fashions interpersonal relationships.

There have been innumerable books on the subject. The one I remember the most was possibly one of the earliest. “Body Language” by Julius Fast which was published way back in 1970.

I read in the New York Times today that Mr. Fast passed away at the age of 89. This is my small tribute to a person who introduced me to this topic- which continues to interest me more than 35 years after I first read his book.
