Cuddy has a TED talk that is a reasonable introduction to the content in this book.

This book talks a fair bit about body language, but instead of what it tells others, the primary focus is about using body language to communicate with yourself, and uses her own academic work, along with some others, to allow yourself to behave with confidence and set yourself up to project your genuine belief in yourself of your ideas to others. The TED talk might be sufficient for you, but if you want to go a touch deeper and get basic information about the research and methodology this is a sold read.… (mere)

You can go ahead and just watch the Youtube video and get the gist. Many times while reading this book, I wanted to just quit especially in the middle of the book as I got bored reading through all the studies and experiments.

The lesson of the book really just is fake it until you make it. Reading the book forces you to really take the time to play with the idea rather than mindlessly checking it off your list and going back to your same old habits.

Recently I have felt unmotivated: beat-up, beat-down, and beaten. To pick myself up, I actually like to lie down (which I can't do at work), nap (which I also can't do at work), or shower (nor this). Adopting power poses sounds like a great idea.

Reading this book is a great idea, too

A great writing about why we do what we do concerning our gestures, mimics, body motions and the expressions of the feelings in our faces.

This book includes a bunch of evolutionary aspects of why we are the way we are, which is a great knowledge in a world that has lost its straightforwardness.

It's hard to write a review for this as I was almost finished with the book when all my questions ("Really? ALL her hypothesis were proven true?") built up and I started researching and realized...oh dear. If you haven't read up on the revolution within the social psychology field I highly recommend it as it brings up some really interesting points.
What does this have to do with the book? Unfortunately for Cuddy and her co-authors, they got caught up in a huge change of philosophy of research and since publishing their papers, almost none of the results of their power posing and hormone studies have been replicated. None.
Personally, Cuddy has been attacked, but also she hasn't admitted fully that her research in many cases is not valid. She's still giving talks and her TED talk is still up, even though what she's talking about is not true.
It's a shame since she's a genuinely good writer and I think her heart is in the right place but there's something about having humility to say, "I made a mistake. I want to do better."
