Editorial Reviews

Review

The face is the most distinctive part of a person. Genetic differences cause great variations as each specific area can be linked to certain types of behavioral patterns. Face reading can be a great help in everyday applications for; for improving relationships, interacting more effectively with people, selecting better partners and understanding other's needs and responses. Mac Fulfer is a teacher, author and jury consultant. He expanded his law practice of 20 years to include face reading. Amazing Face Reading is a comprehensive easy-to-read book, with 275 superb illustrations. This is an excellent book on the subject. -- Natural Health Book Reviews by David Schiller Summer/Fall 1998

From the Author

I became interested in Face Reading in order to do better jury selection. As an attorney for more than twenty years I realized that the least reliable information we get from people is what comes out of their mouths. After reading everything I could find on the topic I began to read faces to get feedback. After reading someone's face the person often thought I was psychic but the most common remark was "That's amazing, how do you do that?" So I changed my sign to Amazing Face Reading and began writing the book. It has changed my life and the lives of many people who have heard my lectures or taken my class.

Just carry around this book so that other people can read the title, and soon you'll be deep in a conversation with someone. That has been my experience. Even learning a few major facial attributes: "Large eyelids mean you want deep connection in a relationship; when you commit, it is for life which means it is difficult for you to end even a bad relationship." Or "A line in your chin means your self esteem isn't what you deserve and you need validation from at least one external source." As you notice just a few major features, people will reveal more about themselves because they feel seen and understood and have a rare opportunity to be self-revelatory. You learn that each feature has a positive side and a "challenge." As people validate your observations, you will be inspired to continue learning more about the traits until you hear a "that's amazing" as Fulfer does with each face he reads. The book is written with a compassionate outlook towards everyone. Fulfer emphasizes that the purpose of the book is not to "nail" people or categorize them, but to understand them and open a deeper dialogue than we have with most people. In relationships, understanding face reading can help lighten areas of disagreement. For example, I found myself saying, "Oh, you interrupt me because you have low eyebrows and you want to participate, and you're afraid you'll forget what you want to say" instead of "you're rude and you have no interest in what I'm saying." I can joke about what once felt like an insult. The interest Fulfer inspires in people who hear hin lecture and want to buy his book was recently shown at the Ontario Human Resources Conference, where people literally stood in line for hours to have their faces read. Amazing Face Reading was the best selling book in the history of the Ontario Human Resources Conference.

Sometimes I like to supplement my studies of psychology and "personality typing" by picking up a book that falls outside the mainstream framework. Mac Fulfer's "Amazing Face Reading" caught my eye while I was looking for something completely different, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
Face reading-- also known as physiognomy-- is the 2,000+ year old "soft science" of learning about people and their personality from looking at, and understanding, their facial features. The author is an attorney and jury consultant who studied 1,000s of people through his work and established correlations between certain physical characteristics, behavior and personality. After 20 years of study, he summarized his findings in this informative, interesting and easy-to-read book.
The book is richly illustrated with 200+ high quality pencil drawings, accompanied by concise paragraphs about each facial characteristic. After covering the basics of face reading, Fulfer includes a section on different applications for what you have learned-- as applied to the fields of Sales and Jury Selection-- and also includes brief coverage of reading facial expressions and body language.
Is "Face reading" a science? Well, I'll leave that for someone else to decide. Does it have merit? From what I have learned, Fulfer's principles seem almost uncannily accurate-- although I expect they are best used in conjunction with other psychological tools. To those who dismiss face reading out of hand, I do have to point out that many of the principles draw on pretty well researched fields such as NLP and reading body language. There's also a large component of intuition and common sense involved.

I have just posted a review for Face Language 2000. It is always interesting and useful to compare different face reading books. Each claims much success and accuracy and yet different authors have different criteria for interpretation. Is it because of the vague and general descriptions that we use? In NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) it is called nominalisations, which are specifically used for Ericksonian hypnosis. So given the rapport, people may give their own meanings to those words and feel how right on they are. This book is more comprehensive in scope. The pencil drawings are artistic and very helpful. Overall, it is a great tool for developing one's sensory acuity in perceving people. But we must read that with a pinch of salt. Face reading is still a long way from being scientifically or statistically reliable. Some interpretations may have higher validity. E.g. the correlations of heart lines (vertical line on ear lobe), p.66, with certain coronary heart problems may be higher. But not every interpretation. The Chinese Face Reading system goes into mapping the location for each year on the face. That helps to make interpretations more precise for verification. This is a fascinating field that is worth studying. We need to work out more systematically the rationale underlying the interpretations. The present book is a good introduction if we approach it with an open, objective and discriminating mind and have the sensitivity to racial differences also.

At first, I was kind of skeptical about all this face reading, but after some time reading the book and trying out the face techniques described in the book, I slowly realized that about 95% of the time, my analyzing of the persons face was acurate. This book should be read by anyone trying to get an edge in everyday life
