Are you signaling honestly?

A few weeks back, I was having a conversation with my friend Geoff Livingston in the comments of a blog post. One thing led to another and he recommended Honest Signals from Alex (Sandy) Pentland.

The book itself is a very smart read that took me out of my comfort zone of sorts. Instead of talking business, marketing or social, the book focused on an area that I have no background in – science.

Throughout the research report, Pentland takes you through a number of studies and how her team was able to use computers and sensors to accurately predict the tells of humans. Kind of scary, but really cool stuff – my full review is below:

    I’m glad you read this.  I found the science of sociology here to be much more compelling than most of the curent influence theories we’re receiving online today.

    geoffliving I think it was the best recommendation I have received in a while so thanks again. There were some things that I had to re-read but think she did an awesome job of making it plain speak for non-science minded folks. The research can be applied universally and is quite telling about our online personas… Only spot that I couldn’t get through was the appendix, really got me lost on some of the formulas.
