Emotions Revealed: Recognizing Faces and Feelings to Improve Communication and Emotional Life

by Paul Ekman, PhD Author

If you're never quite sure what someone's trying to communicate, have trouble reading between the lines, or frequently find you've misread the room, this book is incredibly helpful. Psychologist Paul Ekman took hundreds of photos of his teen daughter making specifically calibrated facial expressions, and uses them here to reveal the anatomy of how we express our emotions on our faces. Anger, fear, disgust, sadness, happiness, and every variation, degree, and mixed feeling is shown plainly. Helpful in understanding your own feelings too, if you tend to keep those secret from yourself—your face doesn't lie.
