View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Learn to read your emotions and desires, and those of people you deal with every day. A graphology expert instructs readers in the basics of handwriting analysis. He shows how to employ a step-by-step method that gives a reliable description of a subject, based on a sample of his or her handwriting. Just as our voices reveal much about our emotions, our motives, and our needs, so too does our handwriting present a psychological profile to the analyst who knows how to decipher it. A simple but clever set of tools, devised by the author, is enclosed with this book. Its components are:

  • A protractor to measure angles of handwriting slant and gauge emotions at the time of writing, as well as to interpret enduring personality traits
  • A gauge for estimating the zones into which each part of a handwritten letter falls
  • A rule for measuring any letter's size and spacing
All components in the tool kit are printed on sturdy, transparent acetate, to be used as an overlay on handwriting samples. An opening chapter presents an overview of handwriting analysis, discussing handwriting pressure, size, spacing, slant, and the qualities these features indicate. Subsequent chapters discuss what handwriting reveals about a subject's public life and inner life. A final chapter offers an at-a-glance guide to decoding psychological meanings underlying the various ways in which a subject shapes each letter of the alphabet. This fascinating book provides a key to self-understanding and the understanding of others. More than 250 instructive color illustrations.
