Modern science has proved that the fundamental traits of every individual are indelibly stamped in the shape of his body, head, face and hands-an X-ray by which you can read the characteristics of any person on sight.

The most essential thing in the world to any individual is to understand himself. The next is to understand the other fellow. For life is largely a problem of running your own car as it was built to be run, plus getting along with the other drivers on the highway.

From this book you are going to learn which type of car you are and the main reasons why you have not been getting the maximum of service out of yourself.

Also you are going to learn the makes of other human cars, and how to get the maximum of co-operation out of them. This co-operation is vital to happiness and success. We come in contact with our fellowman in all the activities of our lives and what we get out of life depends, to an astounding degree, on our relations with him.

Elsie Lincoln Benedict was a famous human analyst and her views, especially as put forward in this book, captured an enormous audience and were massively famous in their day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Stars! I was taking a philosophy class at college and had to write some papers. These proved to be helpful during the class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kind of Accurate!!!!! It's about body types as relating to psychological profiling. It's sort of like rudimentary profiling but I could read it and pick out people I know, me included, that fit the profiles generally. Not a bad read, modern, concise style of writing and the text flowed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious Hilarious. And every now and then, I have to admit, actually insightful (especially its advice about how to choose a vocation). But mostly, just hilarious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes...Its a must read... So much interesting and relevant information of the 5 types of people. Much scientific research must have been conducted prior to the publication. Before you get a new job, intend to marry or make life long friends, its a must read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Read Every person who has a sense to read should read this book. i also recommend it for every person who wishes to improve themselves and to understand why people in society behave, act and think the way they do. it is as informative as it is entertaining but only if you have been keen enough on your environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great basis for further study After reading "the five human types", I came to amazon to see what people said about it, and it was as I expected: many people are bashing it without explaining why, and saying it's outdated. People have noted that the book is not politically correct. Indeed, there was no such thing as "political correctness" back in 1921, at least outside of the soviet union! The very concept that biology might influence our behavior is now anathema in our sanitized, feel-good society. I'm sure the reason for all the low scores is that people started reading the book, where offended by what they read, and stopped immediately, venting their anger writing a review here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an eye opener.. The truth is sometimes hard to assimilate. We express who we are in innumerable ways.. This is a very interesting approach and I have personally match all different types of individuals to the examples given in this book. Interesting skill to attain with practice will definitely give you an insight into other people by just looking at them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astoundingly accurate! Many people simply will have trouble facing the truths of this book....but it was written in an era where one simply enjoyed more freedom of speech and was less concerned about being politically correct. This books information is priceless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read it. For something so old it is amazingly accurate. If you can get past the creative analogies and odd format you will enjoy it. I high recommend this to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good book Lot of great info and it seem pretty true. A great read for a free book. I would suggest reading this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting read... The best book no one has ever heard of! Can you really determine a person's whole character by the shape of his or her hands, or face? Elsie says you can and I believe her, because the measurements she gives for deciding each person have been so scarily accurate, I almost don't believe it. I found this book on Newshunt. A really interesting find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly remarkable.... This book have more haters than lovers, perhaps people hate to be identified in certain patterns, behavioral or physical ones. The book allows you to understand yourself, your nature, as a social human being, and your environment. The author of the book divided people into certain categories based on their physical appearance and connected it to habits and behaviors. According to some people, it seems absurd to judge the book by its cover; however, is this case, the cover is your skin, fat, bones, wrinkles, facial hair and so on. Those are major clues to analyze and identify the characteristics of humans who roam around you. I, myself, found most of the patterns logical, though the analysis lacks proofs sometimes, but, over all, what the author wrote is real and it exists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful read... It's funny but if you look at it closely but People who complain about this book are the ones who cannot accept and do not like the type they are after they have learned which one they are. If you look at their comments carefully they don't state to why exactly it is a bad book and just goes off saying its racist or inaccurate without really having a strong standpoint. Also I would suggest comment readers to use what they have read into use and observer the people who are complaining and what type they are. Surely, a cerebral or two will have a good smirk out of what I just said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining Book... Entertaining Book from a time when speaking and writing plainly was a virtue. Surprisingly true on many levels, however there's always exceptions to the rules. To all those who doubt it's efficacy, I ask why would physical composition not govern our relationships and behaviors? I'm sure if Elsie and Ralph were around today they'd write an even more compelling version with the benefits of modern science at thier disposal.
