8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Lena, Massage Therapist VINE VOICE on July 22, 2003
Format: Hardcover
I chat online and when I see a photo of a person I've only known a few minutes, this book helped me to truely read their personality. So many have accused me of being psychic, wondering how I knew so much about them. This book proves that people's faces are true reflection of their personality at that time of their life. It proves the old wive's tales are true: weak chins mean a weak personality, generous lips: generous person, etc. Your left side is your true nature, your right side is your the side you want people to believe you are. People mostly zoom in on other's right sides because the eye tends to look more left then right. You can tell easily whether it's a real smile, what personality traits a person has, trustworthiness, etc. This book doesn't go crazy making you remember every minute detail, but by looking at different quadrents of the face individually. Simple, easy & most accurate. This book contains a lot of great b&w photos people, including famous people at different times of their lives for you to practice on.
Even looking at my own photos as a child and through the years, I see how my lips changed, my cheeks, my nose even. That's why some people look completely different years later because their personality changed.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dave Davis on February 16, 2003
Format: Hardcover
I first learned of this book in an early 1990's issue of Omni magazine. After buying and reading the book, I spoke to Dr. Bellak, who had some fascinating stories to relate on his experience in this area.
At times, I think the book makes some leaps that may not be quite scientifically supported, especially in assigning certain character attributes based on facial features. Notwithstanding, the book is thought provoking and interesting reading.
Recently, my company developed a technology and website called Symmeter that uses a somewhat similar approach, and references this interesting and informative book and it's authors.
If you are interested in psychology and symmetry, this is a must have book.

What a great book!!! Learning to read faces is facilitated with this book. Wished I'd had this before I married my first two husbands!
