Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A master graphologist, East owns the handwriting-analysis firm Strokes and Slants of Washington, DC, and London, which has decrypted for the House of Representatives and Fortune 500 corporations. By using the 50-year-old science of handwriting analysis, East believes that women can find the proverbial Mr. Right. Each chapter analyzes a different trait (e.g., sociability) and is divided into the 12 hours of the day. Handwriting, East asserts, can reveal whether the potential lover is gay, has a temper, or is drug/alcohol addicted. Scrawl samples of 20 happily married couples of various ethnic backgrounds are discussed. The last chapter ends with plenty of advice for the single woman. A quick-find guide is appended that contains an alphabetical handwriting sample list with meanings. An interesting twist to handwriting analysis; for public libraries.

Review

"Written in clear, easy language, and ripe to readiness with hints and tips, Finding Mr. Write is a stimulating companion for anyone whose quest to find true love has been repetitive, boring, disappointing, treacherous, predictable, or bland. As wise as an aunt, as honest as a sister-friend, Finding Mr. Write is more than a book. It is an ode to the truth."
--From the Foreword by Colin Channer, author of Waiting in Vain

"This is a sensitive, practical approach to finding your soul mate. It does not preclude romance, fun, or spontaneity. The wisdom Beverley East passes on to her readers should help assure that love blooms in fertile soil."
--Patrice Gaines, author of Laughing in the Dark and Moments of Grace

"Leading graphologist Beverley East tells us what handwriting reveals and offers women another tool for finding love and fulfillment."
--Bebe Moore Campbell, author of Singing in the Comeback Choir, Brothers and Sisters, and Your Blues Ain't Like Mine

I got this book and could not put it down. It becomes contagious after a while because everytime someone writes me something I have to pick it up again to see if I can find out more about them. It is an easy read with great tips for the single girl making her way. I have learnt so much about myself and others in a very short time. More More More praise to the author.

Of all the books I've reviewed on Graphology, this tops my list. Not only does the author give you clear information on what to look for and how to review it, it is blatantly obvious she is educated and has plenty of life experience to share with her readers. Once you have the information you are seeking, it is good that she explains what to do with it - particularly tips on better understanding the male mind, AND providing a useful guide for the single woman.
"Where you are is where you need to be right this moment because you are not ready for more. When you are ready, your mate will be there."
A MUST READ!

He says all the right things, but does he look good on paper?? That's the question I asked myself after reading "Mr. Write." How could I (how could anyone) resist the temptation to find out using the well-written, clear and insightful analyses provided by Ms. East. Intelligent, witty and sometimes disturbing, Ms. East shows us how cryptology reveals a person's personality through the simple act of writing a note and how anyone can can apply those theories. In addition, she provides easy to understand examples. So, if you're wondering if he's as good as he seems, or too good to be true. Is he kind, open, generous and straightforward or critical, controlling and deceitful? Find out for yourself. By the way, I did. Fortunately, I learned enough to to confirm what I already knew, which was, that while the gentleman in question may not be Mr. Right, he's perfectly suited for Mr. Right Now!! So I'm keeping pen and paper handy while my search continues.

Format: Hardcover
This book is quite unlike your typically self-help books. It provides the reader with a 'slant'on the intricacies of finding a mate. The best thing about the book is that the reader can use it to improve their own personal characteristics AND see if that significant other is really the one for you.
Although the art of graphology is quite new to me, I found the book quite interesting. Also this is an easy read for those of us with little to no time for leisure reading. You can choose the 'hour' of your choice for traits you find the most important in a relationship.
As far as validity of the science of graphology, I'm totally not bought on it yet. After I recieve my in-depth analysis from Ms. East then I'll make judgement. Until then, I think Ms. East succeeded in creating an interesting, thought provoking tool to use for understanding that special someone.

I receieve "Finding Mr. Write" as a gift and wasn't sure what to expect because I haden't heard of it. When I started reading it, the more I got interested in it. I did like it, but I have yet to test it out. I've been paying attention to men's handwriting a lot more lately, but it's hard to evaluate it without having a sample right in front of you and getting that sample is more diffifult that one may think. But, the author's knowledge of this material is pretty impressive. She knows what she's doing. If anyone is having trouble finding that certain somone, maybe this book can help you more than you think!

This book is a must have to anyone interested in many topics. Relationships, Personalities and, most of all, Graphology. I have read many books on Graphology and the Analysis of Hand Writing and find this to be the most accesible yet. It is wonderful! Not only informative but entertaining, I can learn and have fun at the same time, I love that. This book is a treasured addition to my library.

By Brandy on September 24, 2000

I attended a lecture/book signing last week at the Jamaican Embassy in Washington DC. Beverly East gave us a "crash course" in graphology, borrowing from the material in her book. I had been somewhat skeptical of the science of graphology, but Ms. East made a true believer out of me. The one issue I always had with grapholoy was that people change in their charactaristics and traits, so I thought graphology could not be an accurate science. Ms. East addressed this concern, stating that one's handwriting can change as they change. Also, when someone is feeling stressed, or any other emotion(s) differing from their usual state, their handwriting reflects that change. When she evaluates a person's handwriting, she likes to have a recent sample about a day old, not something from six months ago. Ms. East is extremely knowlegable and won over skeptics who were in the audience (myself included). A critic has said that her book should be on the shelf with the thesaurus (allow me to second that). She stated that her book was not a male-bashing book. When I initially read the title, That was not my concern so much as the idea that this book would be like that ridiculous book "The Rules" and put us women back 30 years. Not so! (Thank God). Graphology is a 16th century science and gender has no effect on a person's handwriting and the traits they show through their script. I thought the information I had would be of some help to you. No, I do not work for her or the publishers of her book and do not even know her, I had to go to the lecture for a class assignment, but am very happy I went. Buy this book!
