Item Description...
Shows us the science behind the hit series "Lie to Me: the Truth is Written on our Faces"

This is the only book helps you "read faces," and interpret their emotions, in an easy-to-read visual format. There are hundreds of illustrations which show how to tell what someone is experiencing. Great for viewers of "Lie to Me," people interested in understanding their friends and coworkers, and students in College and High School.

Dr. Paul Ekman, who is the basis for the character Cal Lightman in "Lie to Me," is the researcher who developed the new science of face recognition. There is a lot of media and popular interest in this work, as well as its use in the classroom.

"I've been familiar with Ekman's work for several years now; I have found nothing else that even comes close to Unmasking the Face] providing the reader with the knowledge they need to master the science of reading the emotions of others by decoding their facial expressions. Ekman is the king " Vincent Harris --

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Unmasking the Face  Aug 26, 2008
I gave the book three stars because I felt the writing could have been better. Other than that, I thought the book was filled with interesting and useful information. It is an unusual subject looked at from a different perspective. I liked it. The subject is all about how to read facial expressions and our unconscious responses to body (facial) language. It is filled with pictures and examples and over all is a good read.
Read faces, read people  Sep 3, 2007
Learn how to read people by reading their faces.

Lots of examples, to read the emotions on peoples faces.
It will require some hard work to get really good at it, but is worth it!
A Must-Have Primer for Learning to Recognize Facial Expressions  Jul 14, 2006
Ekman is a leading authority on the study of the facial expressions and their relation to emotion, and this book is a methodical and thorough (for the layperson, at least) introduction to the field, with special focus on recognizing what he calls the six basic universally expressed emotions: happiness, fear, anger, surprise, disgust/contempt, and sadness.

Ekman provides clear, well-detailed instructions for recognizing each of these emotions, and the book includes plenty of photos to illustrate the different facial contortions of each emotion. The only complaint I would have is that I had to do a lot of page flipping back and forth to read Ekman's remarks and subsequently refer to the relevant picture. Perhaps a future edition could be better formatted to make it easier for the reader to view the expression alongside Ekman's comments.

In addition to writing about specific emotions, Ekman also covers some fascinating related topics such as recognizing facial deceit and discovering the patterns of one's own facial expressions, i.e., what you're telling the world with your own face.

Ekman is an academic and his writing shows it; he's precise, methodical, thorough, and careful in the extent of his claims. Readers who are new to the subject of reading facial expressions but are seriously committed to learning about it will find this an invaluable book.

(Ekman's later work, "Emotions Revealed," is also a great read and contains much of the same information as "Unmasking the Face," although I found the former to be lighter on technical information and practice faces, and more focused on the larger reflections Ekman has made looking back on his work over the last few decades. In other words, both books are great, but "Unmasking the Face" is a bit more technical and thorough, and therefore a better book to pick up for learning how to recognize facial expressions.)
Smiley Faces  Mar 20, 2006
Nothing new here. Very basic for what everyone has experienced. It does have good usable insight into what causes the face to contort. It establishs basic parameters for everyone to know and articulates them well. I thought the basic knowledge was very well put forward with great emphasis on the reasons to watch the face of a person. This is what enables you to get to a conclusion.
About "Unmasking the face"  Sep 9, 2005
This seems to be an excellent resource for someone who would like to study facial expressions or improve one's ability to recognize emotions by looking at faces. The text is not just a popular blurb but a fully scientifically backed and high-level textbook designed for a serious student. There are exercises, suggestions on how to overcome one's difficulties or shortcomings, lots of photographs of faces, detailed comments on how certain facial features reflect certain emotions, and so on. I am looking forward to studying everything this book has to offer. Worth every penny!
