I am looking to acquire a few books to help me with my live play.

Internet play has been my home for a long time, this has helped my gain a good knowledge of pot odds etc..

I am looking for a book that helps more with tells/body language because I have realized this part of poker is holding me back. Not only do I have no idea what some people are up to, I want to make sure I am not giving away to much information when I play
 
Could anyone recommend a good book that focuses on improving these areas?

Its ok but I wouldn't go out of your way. There is supposed to be a fantastic book coming out soon written by an ex fbi agent on tells. He did a talk at the recent camp helmuth and was supposed to be superb. Even the pros were glued to his presentation.

Navarro is the FBI agent. Apparently Helmuth and Cloutier were taking pages of notes when he was speaking at his first camp. Cheesy

Caro's book is still pretty good, when you play the smaller buy in tourneys its like the book has come to life.

I've got a book coming out next month, but it's for internet beginners and only about 300 words on tells. Sorry!
