Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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 --

Book description

Can you tell when someone who is actually afraid is trying to look angry? Can you tell when someone is feigning surprise? With the help of Unmasking the Face, you will be able to improve your recognition of the facial clues to emotion, increase your ability to detect "facial deceit", and develop a keener awareness of the way your own face reflects your emotions. Using scores of photographs of faces that reflect the emotions of surprise, fear, disgust, anger, happiness, and sadness, the authors of Unmasking the Face explain how to identify correctly these basic emotions and how to tell when people try to mask, simulate, or neutralize them.

And, to help you better understand our own emotions and those of others, this book describes not only what these emotions look like when expressed on the face, but also what they feel like when you experience them. In addition, Unmasking the Face features several practical exercises that will help actors, teachers, salesmen, counselors, nurses, and physicians -- and everyone else who deals with people -- to become adept, perceptive readers of the facial expressions of emotion.
