I remember seeing an advertisement a few years ago where someone was supposed to look really worried but in the closeup photo the actor just raised his eyebrows, the basic signal for surprise. The advertising company probably spent £100k on the campaign, based on facial expression, but didn't know the basic expressive signals, or see their error, they definitely should have read this book!
The Darren Brown-o-philes will be interested in Chapter 11 which explains "micro-expressions" which last less than a second but indicate the true nature of what the subject is feeling. These operate a bit like a blush, by the time you've felt it, its already happened.
If you are interested in portraiture, acting, makeup, or any kind of analysis of emotional states espressed on the face, it is a great reference book and one that is always cited in other face perception studies.
The book appears simple but truthfully it defines what the true scientific understanding of face expressions is. to my knowledge its the best starting point for looking at 'micro expressions' and anyone interested in work by Paul Ekmans work. would highly recommend this book to any one.
Also to anyone who is interested in science behind 'lie to me' its a must read.
Ekman and Friesen do an excellent job in explaining the different emotions and not just how they look but how they feel.
Personally, I loved the book it was exactly what I wanted. Overall i'd say buy it, you wont regret it. But maybe only for people that are really into studying facial expressions.
