2.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight and lacking insight, 7 July 2007
A Richardson (Berkshire, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Mian Xiang: The Chinese Art of Face Reading Made Easy (Paperback)
This is an enjoyable enough read but it comes across as rather basic and without the thoughtfulness and personal insight of Lilian Young / Lillian Bridges books. There are no photographs as in Lilians books, so each feature is illustrated by an over simplified and rather inhuman looking line drawing which seems lazy on the publishers part - its difficult to compare the differences without real-life faces and consequently you have to work hard to see differences at all, i.e. the cheekbones all look the same really and the tapered versus the rounded forehead actually are the same diagram. The eye section especially is very poor at illustrating the features he lists. He concentrates on the fortune-telling and personality aspects of this art (his main interests are which features show wealth, high sex drive, worldly power, social status, mean mindedness, longevity etc.) There is little here for seekers of health or spirituality indications. I think that if you based your face-reading on just this book it would be a case of a little knowledge being a dangerous thing. I'm sure he is very respected and knowledgable, but this book really suffers for the poor diagrams. I honestly think this is a fun book for parlour games, but not for serious study.
