I'm a sucker for unique skills and psychology. The Body Farm fascinates me, not that I'd want to be the scientist who digs into the putrid place, but the mystery and marvel of the human body amazes me. My Psych 101 class included The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat as one of the required textbooks. I loved learning, and still remember twenty years later, some of the details of the way a mind can twist.

Handwriting analysis is another one of those quirky sciences that grab my mind. I even sent my handwriting away to be analyzed during my Psych 101 days and the results we astonishingly accurate.

My fascination with the subject may color my review. I can't tell you how accurate or spot-on Sheila Lowe's information is or how it compares to colleagues. But I can tell you that this book is cool. The basic whys, hows and how-tos are included as are juicy evaluations and samples of handwriting styles.

If you are fascinated by the subject I think you might find this to be an excellent beginning look into this intriging skill.

Shielah Lowe knows wherefrom she speaks and writes. This book contains more "how-to" and "what-is" information about graphology...handwriting analysis...than any other I have read, with the possible exception of Victor Povsner's (Allan K. Grim, Jr.) book "Strokes." I mention Povsner's work because in her book Lowe addresses the gestalt, or 'whole page' viewpoint of analysis and Povsner looks at handwriting from the atomist, or individual stroke, perspective. Until I read Lowe's book I was an atomist. Because Lowe exudes credibility via her writing convinced me to accept the fact that the two approaches to handwriting analysis, taken together and used by a professional, will yield the most comprehensive and correct analysis of a given sample.

Lowe's book contains many sample handwriting illustrations to go with a seemingly endless supply of graphology features that will keep a reader occupied as he or she learns to interpret page after page of handwriting, much of it from names most readers will recognize. She wastes few words in her text. As they say, "Highly recommended."

If you have been caught up in the "the methods incorporated in graphology vs. the other methods" debate, I believe that this book will go a long way towards ending the debate in your mind...if it doesn't end it altogether. I respectfully request that readers ignore review comments written by those who state that there is no basis for handwriting analysis. As usual, Europe leads the way, so do your research starting over there, then come to a conclusion about the art and science of handwriting analysis after carefully reading Shielah Lowe's book and practicing what she preaches before making snap judgments about handwriting analysis.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Handwriting Analysis by Sheila Lowe is a MUST HAVE for everyone who plans to interact with people in any situation, be it professional or romantic or familiar. Understanding how the subtleties of a person's handwriting can tell us different things about that person, and may keep us from falling into bad relationships (business or personal) is invaluable. This book is so chock full of useful information, it is worth its weight in gold!

I highly recommend this book.

handwriting analysis is becoming much more sophisticated and is entering a stage where it is more than a simple parlor trick like palm reading or astrology. this book is a fine overview without taking some of the older claims too seriously (trait-analysis/freudian analysis). i still wouldn't use the information here in any serious way, but mostly for fun. i've noticed, though, even when you don't pretend that it is no more than an elaborate fiction, people do use the analysis to look more seriously at themselves, so i always encourage subjects to think critically about whether the analysis really does reveal anything of consequence or not.
