What the Face Reveals dramatically illustrates the value of precise measurement of facial behavior in illuminating an impressive range of issues in basic and applied research. The chapters present innovative state-of-the-art applications of facial measurement, and the commentaries by authors and editors greatly enrich the readers experience. This is affective science of the highest quality, brimming with intriguing findings and promising new directions. (Robert W. Levenson, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley and Director of the Institute of Personality and Social Research and the Berkeley Psychophysiology Laboratory)
About the Author
Paul Ekman was a Professor of Psychology for 32 years in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California at San Francisco. He also served as chief psychologist in the U.S. Army, Fort Dix New Jersey from 1958-1960. His interests have focused on two separate, but related topics: He originally focused on nonverbal behavior, and by the mid-60s concentrated on the expression and physiology of emotion. His other interest is interpersonal deception. His research program was supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the DOD, loosely affiliated with UCSF. His many honors have included the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award of the American Psychological Association in 1991, and an honorary doctor of humane letters from the University of Chicago in 1994. Dr. Ekman retired from UCSF in 2004.

Well, it is irrelivent how long it took, because the fact is that I eventually managed to pass through all 600 wafer thin, acedemic, thesis styled pages and realise how brilliant this fantastic pallet of articles documenting findings from painstaking research is. It introduces you to FACS and you read about how it is applied and what your interpretations mean. By no means a light or entertaing read which will teach you how to smell someone lying but it certainly vital reading for anyone wanting to develope those skills. It leaves the aspect of the intuition taken to detect lies but actually adresses the title with extreme profficiency. You will learn what the face reveals, and actually how it reveals it- Be it predicting sucide, cigaret cravings or even heart deseise! Study this bible and you will be on the way to becoming a God in reading human emotion- with the added effect of looking like a mind reader.
There is endless volume of information contained inside this no-nonsense mannual, so stop reading this and begin your true journey to understanding how good the book is- buy it, then read it!
Some great examples of tests carried out using FACS. I will have to say knowing FACS will be useful in understanding this collection of work[s], but not essential.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone inerested in undersatnding human behaviour.
There is a massive wealth of knowledge and other great minds to research into to help your own personnal development.
This book shows the different "micro actions" facial expressions that people give when they lie. These expressions are involuntary and are almost guaranteed clues to deceit.
So if you want to get an angle on your bosss, check if your wife was at bingo last night or whether your hubby is really working late - check it out.
But remember dont tell your partner you read it, they might buy it too!.
