Description″No one in the world has studied facial expressions as deeply as Paul Ekman. In Emotions Revealed he presents—clearly, vividly, and in the most accessible way—his fascinating observations about the overt or covert expressions of emotions we all encounter hundreds of times daily, but so often misunderstand or fail to sec. There has not been a book on this subject of such range and insight since Darwin’s famous Expression of the Emotions more than a century ago.”— Oliver Sacks, author of Uncle Tungsten”Paul Ekman is one of those rare thinkers who can connect what scientists have learned with what the rest of us wonder about in our everyday lives. If you read this book, you’ll never look at other people in quite the same way again. Emotions Revealed is a tour de force.”—Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point”Ever since Darwin, no one has contributed more to our understanding of how humans go about communicating emotions than Paul Ekman. In this masterful overview, he reviews how emotions are communicated, and the implications for topics ranging from mental health and interpersonal relationships to law enforcement and violence. A fascinating and important book.”— Robert M. Sapolsky, professor of biology; Stanford University, and author ofWhy Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers”‘Paul Ekman is the master of emotional expression, and this is a masterful account of his field. He even suggests how we can use findings about emotional expressions to guide and improve our lives.”—Joseph I.eDoux, professor of neural science, New York University, and author ofSynoptic Self and ‘The Emotional Brain”What a pleasure to have Paul Ekman, a pioneer of detailed facial analysis, help us to see what others feel.”— Frans de Waal, professor of psychology, Emory University, and author ofThe Ape and the Sushi Master”Emotions Revealed showcases Paul Ekman’s forty years of academic research and great, common sense, providing a fascinating and enormously helpful picture of our emotional lives.”—John Cleese”Emotions Revealed’ will leave everyone who reads it more intelligent about their emotional life..
