Handwriting is an expression of personality, and as unique as a fingerprint. Physical, intellectual, and emotional states combine to produce a writing style. Handwriting analysis, or graphology, was once sneeringly labeled a pseudoscience but is now gaining acceptance as a useful diagnostic tool in business, criminology, medicine, and psychology. McNichol (Univ. of California) has thorough knowledge and long experience as a consultant and expert witness, and teaches the only graphology course sponsored by an accredited U.S. university. Her common sense explanations are salted with wry humor and ironic observations on the handwriting of the famous as well as the infamous. No one, including the reader, is safe from her barbs. This is an excellent introduction to graphology, a great party game, and an incentive to type all correspondence!-- Evelyn L. Mott, Palm Beach Cty. Lib., West Palm Beach, Fla.

In this well thought out and compelling introduction to graphology, McNichol covers each topic in a concise and entertaining way that drives home the common sense and logic underpinning this science. Readers are allowed to reach their own conclusions about each question she poses, before comparing it to the correct answer. McNichol also presents the handwritings of suspects from real past cases, where she identified the guilty parties by looking at their handwriting. Again, she allows readers to make their own deductions as to which one is the culprit, before checking the correct answer and the reasoning behind it.
“Handwriting Analysis-Putting It to Work for You” sparked my interest, and left me eager to learn more. It was the catalyst for my subsequent studies in beginning and advanced graphology, and for my eventually becoming a certified graphologist.
Those who are skeptical about the validity of handwriting analysis are likely to come away from this read surprised and intrigued, if not completely hooked by the direct and logical way in which Andrea McNichol builds her case for the accuracy of this effective people reading tool called graphology.
