"A tour de force. If you read this book, you'll never look at other people in quite the same way again."-Malcolm Gladwell

Renowned psychologist Paul Ekman explains the roots of our emotions-anger, fear, disgust, sadness, and happiness-and shows how they cascade across our faces, providing clear signals to those who can identify the clues. As featured in Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Blink, Ekman's Facial Action Coding System offers intense training in recognizing feelings in spouses, children, colleagues, even strangers on the street.

In Emotions Revealed, Ekman distills decades of research into a practical, mind-opening, and life-changing guide to reading the emotions of those around us. He answers such questions as: How does our body signal to others whether we are slightly sad or anguished, peeved or enraged? Can we learn to distinguish between a polite smile and the genuine thing? Can we ever truly control our emotions? Packed with unique exercises and photographs, and a new chapter on emotions and lying that encompasses security and terrorism as well as gut decisions, Emotions Revealed is an indispensable resource for navigating our emotional world.

Paul Ekman is the world's foremost expert on facial expressions and the professor emeritus of psychology at the University of California Medical School in San Francisco.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic! This is THE word on emotional states and their physiological responses (...and vice versa...), from the man who took the concept to new heights in the early 1970's. Engagingly written and utterly fascinating, this fantastic piece is a prime example of the day-to-day, even moment-to-moment, application of extensive psychological research. Brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So interesting! I had expected a rather dry book, filled with research and facts from the author. But instead, this book is insightful, personal, well-written and so congenial to the layman. I got interested in Ekman from watching "Lie To Me", and it is really a joy reading this book. There is a nice balance between the science and the personal experience/wisdom gained from Ekman.
