4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most
Many books of this type come across as very parlour-game orientated, but Lilians book is insightful and lavishly illustrated with photographs which clearly show the features she is emphasising. She doesn't just cover the usual 'auspicious social standing, sexual vigour, power in politics' etc but goes in the health and spirituality characteristics using the five elements...

2.0 out of 5 stars dissapointing
I bought this book with high hopes. I knew that Lillian Bridges was a respected lecturer, and understood something of face reading from the study of muscles and emotions. Unfortunately, what I got was a bunch of old wives tales: a chinese version of the discredited science of physiognomy. I expected somethng far more scientific, far more concrete than was given. Whilst I...

5.0 out of 5 stars face reading in chinese medicine by lillian bridges, 21 Nov 2008
This review is from: Face Reading in Chinese Medicine, 1e (Paperback)
Found this facinating book excellent. It is well illustrated, easy to read and would satisfy the most discerning chinese medicine practioner as well as anyone with an interest in this subject.Should be recommended reading for all sales people,interviewees,medics and a present from all mothers to their daughters as they search for a partner or vice versa to find out what you did wrong the first time.

2.0 out of 5 stars dissapointing, 4 Sep 2010
This review is from: Face Reading in Chinese Medicine, 1e (Paperback)
I bought this book with high hopes. I knew that Lillian Bridges was a respected lecturer, and understood something of face reading from the study of muscles and emotions. Unfortunately, what I got was a bunch of old wives tales: a chinese version of the discredited science of physiognomy. I expected somethng far more scientific, far more concrete than was given. Whilst I could use what Lillian teaches, it would lend itself no more credence than the infamous Barnum statements: Your weak chin shows that you shy away from confrontation but make tough decisions when you have to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 15 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Face Reading in Chinese Medicine, 1e (Paperback)
Useful but slightly too 'American' in its approach. The author sees everything as good, never even marginally iffy even. However, overall useful and interesting from an experienced practitioner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly thin book for the price !, 2 Dec 2011
This review is from: Face Reading in Chinese Medicine, 1e (Paperback)
For the price, 30.00 near enough we were expecting a substantial read and were shocked when a very thin light weight parcel arrived on the doormat. If we had seen it in a bookshop we would never have considered paying that much for a book of this size. Would send it back on that basis alone if it wasn't for the hassle.
