This systematic how-to is NOT about the kind of face reading you probably do already-expression reading. Instead, this book takes you for a wild ride into the human face. At every phase of your journey, you'll gain a new kind of insight into people. You'll start reading physical face data, like ear angle and lip proportions, and open up the art of physiognomy.

With Rosetree as your tour guide, you'll romp across eyebrows and cheeks, delve into noses, and wiggle over to ears. With each chapter, you'll discover things about physical faces you never noticed before... including fascinating things about your own face.

Additional chapters apply face reading to problem solving, sales and communication, improving self-esteem, and better relationships. Of particular interest is a fascinating chapter on facial sexiness, including _macho knobs_ and other unexpected ways that faces reveal information about sex.

Considering that physiognomy has been practiced for thousands of years, it's not surprising that many different systems have been developed. This book uses Face Reading Secrets(r), a loving and insightful system that is easy to learn. Over 100 illustrations by Robin Ludt help readers identify face data on themselves and others.

Author Rose Rosetree has earned a reputation for her lively, humorous style of teaching. It certainly shows in this book, with its hilarious Q&A sections and, scattered throughout the book, references to more than 500 famous faces, from Fred Astaire to the Marquis de Sade, and Dr. Mom to Oprah Winfrey.

Tables list such indispensable information as "The Top Ten Temper Traits" and "Persuasive Mouths."

Three indexes at the end of the book also add to its usefulness: Index I, Famous Faces, helps you find Rose's comments on your current movie-star crush or most admired historical figure. Index II, Face Data, enables you to look up whatever part of the face is on your mind-helping you to find the meaning of such things as "peek-a-boo dimples" with lightning speed. Index III, Behavior, is your resource for finding other topics of interest, from Rosetree's controversial comments about race and the New Betty Crocker to a view of cosmetic surgery that you won't hear from the new-nose pushers.

Incidentally, this book is especially recommended for the nation's estimated 60 million grumpy nose haters... or anyone who could stand falling in love with your face. Because once you've read _The Power of Face Reading_, you'll see how every face is _perfect_ as a reflection of the inner person. Faces will never look the same again.

From the Author:

Why did I write this book? It's a matter of quality of life. You could also call it quality of face. It would seem there's enough face to go around, but there's not enough love to go around with it. Instead we have a society filled with judgments and stereotypes.

Laughter is the best way to bump us out of this grim rut, but after the laughter fades we need a new way to follow, which is what I've attempted to supply in this book. Along with some laughter.

Even among people who work hard at being "spiritual," there's a great need for more love in the way we look at faces. The power of face reading shows in relationships, especially those situations where people normally feel the opposite of powerful--like singles events; meeting your prospective mother-in-law; wondering about your grumpy new next-door neighbor with the rottweiler.

What do all these situations have in common? Lacking an abracadabra wand, you're stuck with people. They are stuck with you. How can both of you make the best of it? Without power, you're left wishing these strangers would be nice. You hope they'll see the real you (which is, of course, magnificent). You wish. You smile. And, mentally, you cross your fingers.

But your mind doesn't have fingers! That's just the most obvious reason why this sort of stance won't ever make a person feel, or be, powerful. Knowledge is power. If you're wise, you'll wish you could see the best in all the strangers who enter your life. And I don't mean reminding yourself of a cheery slogan, like "God is in this person; so as long as I can ignore the rest, we'll get along fine."

So, with this book, I've made available my hard-won knowledge about physiognomy, which has been a passion of mine since 1975. May you learn it easily, enjoyably, profitably.

I believe that face reading will help you discover as never before that, with any face, God don't make no junk. And, in conclusion, I've done the ultimate volunteer work: On the last page you'll find my photo, not airbrushed, ready for you to read along with the rest.
