The author had provided lively examples throughout the book as she illustrated the basic concept of graphology. Review exercises also helped in checking the understanding of the readers towards each of the topics. This is the first book for me on graphology and I have fallen in love with this "Art of Graphology"!!

this was an excellent book. It really made me interested in graphology. Ann Mahony goes into great detail to show us how our handwriting is the blueprint of our thoughts and how it is reflected in our personality. She explains how word spacing, line width, writing pressure, word size, word slant, style, and signature all ties into our personality, who we are privatly and publicly. I recomend this book to anyone who is remotely intersted in graphology or just seeking for insight to understand people more. Graphology is a very detailed science but it is so easy to learn.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Though this book is structured around a literary contrivance; that of a dinner party with diverse invitees, it provides a lot of useful information shedding light on how many different character traits show up in peoples' handwriting, as well as numerous samples depicting the different ways in which the handwriting traits discussed play out in writers of different ages and backgrounds.
Though several things, such as the description of some of the dinner party fare, render this book dated, it is safe to say that the author's decision to stay away from examples of celebrities' handwriting, on the grounds using well-known personages as examples detracts form the mission of illustrating the emotional states and personality traits depicted in the handwriting samples, makes it less overtly dated than some other books of this kind.
I recommend a careful reading of the front matter, as the writer credibly and carefully links the practice of graphology to the science(?) of mainstream, Establishment-accepted psychology.

I found that this book was phenomenal. I was kept interested from front cover to back. It tells all the basics, and then some, about graphology, and it is helpful in analyzing your own handwriting.
