At first read of Roses other book ;"The power of face reading", My first reaction within the first few pages was OH NO not anouther american celebraty over kill and plug. It was only when I read this book wrinklies etc where she goes into how faces change over time that it really catches a cog. There are quite a few books out there on faces but alot of them are mainly re-written from other sources. If you can filter out some of the celeb chatter this book becomes a refreshing and original book er sorry, BOOK'S' ie if read together. I feel so happy to have read this book and now, after pause and initial hesitation, would scream from a hill top to READ THIS BOOK either for fun or self knowledge,,, oh and of course a whole load of angular featured american presidents and celebs.

HASH(0x9b0917a4) out of 5 stars Learning from Rose 7 Nov. 2003
By Teresa Kramer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wrinkles Are God's Makeup

Rose Rosetree's amusingly written discussion of wrinkles and other facial features, and the changes in them over time, may not be scientific, but it surely adds to one's understanding of people while being interesting reading. I enjoyed Wrinkles immensely, going back to pore over the face changes in the many pictures of famous Americans, trying to discern the length of lip, tilt of nose, eyebrow angle, and suffering lines that Rose believes betray information about who a person is and what s/he has experienced.
Now I find myself studying the faces of those around me whenever I have down-time, looking for those marks I can remember the significance of and making mental notes on face changes I know I read about but whose meaning is not clear to me. I rarely buy books that are not reference works nowadays; in view of its amusing title, I was amazed to find that this is a reference book! If fact, I have been keeping it on my bedside table, going back to look up some famous person or other, rereading a section about the specifics of that face with the intent of applying the ideas to faces around me.

One interesting "wrinkle" I learned from Rose is the "burnout line" just above the nose. I have in fact found it on the faces of friends I know work too much! Knowing to look for that line is worth the price of the book to me! I was also fascinated to learn that the diagonal line on the earlobe, whose supposed relation to heart disease I had read about, is not in fact related to heart problems, but, says Rose, to suffering. Wrinkles offers lots of rebuttals of what I thought was true about faces. And as I observe the faces of those I know well, I find that what Rose says about "God's makeup" often seems to be right on! (If I had been considering a face-lift, this book would certainly have talked me out of it!)

I wish that there were page numbers after each mention of the names of famous people pictured in the book. I spend a lot of time looking back to the List of Photographs on page iv, trying to relocate a face I want to look back at. It might also be nice to have fewer capitals and font sizes-in other words a more even look to the text. On the other hand, this is obviously a book from the heart, not something some author hoped would earn them fame or fortune. The ideas in Wrinkles have stayed with me in the months since I first read it and have, even without serious study of face-reading, given me a number of useful insights into the faces of those around me. I certainly will hang on to this book and go back to it often, hoping to remember more about God's makeup and apply it to understanding myself, my friends, and whoever I have dealings with.

HASH(0x9b5c2b34) out of 5 stars Fun and Profound 25 Jun. 2003
By Paige Turner - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has changed the way I look at people! It has plenty of clear, detailed, well organized data about what facial characteristics mean. It is much more than that though. Rosetrees fundamental philosophy is that when we see traits in people's faces, we are seeing strenghts and sometimes challenges that go along with them. In this sense, everyone is perfect and we can have compassion for those with challenges.
Another important theme running through the book is the idea that any cosmetic surgery could change your strengths in a way that you might later regret. So it is best to really be aware of what your face is all about before doing alterations - even plucking your eyebrows!
The book is loaded with photographs of famous people. There are pictures of some people from different stages of their lives. So we get to see how the faces have changed along with their lives. The corresponding life changes and face changes is very interesting. Not all faces end up "sagging"! Some do just the opposite. Rosetree challenges are assumptions about ideas like, "sagging," and nudges us towards seeing the beauty in all faces. At the same time she acknowledges what society's standards of beauty are and shows how they affect our lives and sometimes facial management choices.
This book will make you profoundly aware of the details and incredible variations in people's faces, and therefore give you a better appreciation of all humans. What could be better than that?

HASH(0x9b0361bc) out of 5 stars let me tell you about the lines above my nose ... 10 Feb. 2005
By Massage by Jacqui - Published on
Format: Paperback
What a refreshing book! In these days of botox and cellular peels and microderm abrasion, this book provides some wonderful insights on the aging process. Our faces -- evey line, every angle, every sag -- are all part of our life stories. After reading this book, I found myself celebrating that story, not resenting it. How magical to see someone's evolution, from the gentic base to the manifestation of his/her life choices, reflected in the face. As an added plus, the book conveys this very revealing subject manner in a casual and easily readable style.

HASH(0x9b039a6c) out of 5 stars Change the Way You View Faces 16 July 2003
By Beautiful Flower - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wow... there is so much to say about this book, it works on so many levels! First, it is an excellent book for anyone interested in Face Reading (an ancient method of learning specific human qualities related to face data, that Rose has created anew with her own Face Reading Secrets). Rose's method for describing Face Reading cuts to the chase-- providing instant, meaningful information related to specific face data, like noses or chins. This makes it a great book for those with "high placed" ears who are quick and adept at receiving facts, and those of us with "lower" ears can savor each bit of face data as it is evaluated for its specific gifts or challenges. Rose takes Face Reading to a profound level by showing us with her distinct passion and respect how each of our face data relates to a particular expression of our soul. In this way our connection to our own faces and those of others changes in way I can only describe as spiritual.
I feel like I know all the people highlighted (with photos) in her book greater than I could have imagined, like Diana, Princess of Wales and Justice Thurgood Marshall, of whom she does comprehensive Face Readings. Through the amazing Transformational Readings of Eleanor Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, I gained greater understanding of how the human face can evolve based on the choices of a person's soul.
This book has many treats, and I don't want to reveal them all here! It's far better to read it for yourself, and even if you're not interested in Face Reading, you will have a greater respect and admiration for those on our human path, who've made personal choices that are remarkably and easily seen on their faces!
On a societal level, "Wrinkles Are God's Makeup" is the ultimate service to people who are encountering the aging process, and who may be considering cosmetic surgery. Deep down I think most people know that cosmetic surgery is vanity surgery, but it can be difficult to acknowledge this fact when you inwardly feel that people reject you for your appearance. Rose brings us back to our inner truth with her descriptions of the glorious way in which wrinkles reflect our inner decisions and how they emerge as indicators of conscious or unconscious lessons we have learned on our life path.
Another gift of this book is that I now see wrinkles in a new way, as gifts, as beautiful testaments to what a soul has gone through. Wrinkles reveal information about our collective human experience that no soul should want to hide. Rose calls them "badges of honor". And Rose rightly points out that even if a person should choose to "erase" wrinkles with Cosmetic Surgery, even that, over time, won't keep ALL of aging at bay.
And what if surgery would work over time? Rose answers that too--I recommend reading the book to see how certain cosmetic procedures affect your soul. Rose emphasizes that what you change on the inside you change on the outside, and vice versa. In our current times where we have advances in cosmetic surgery on the one hand, and the desire for a meaningful, soulful life on the other, Rose's book and teachings couldn't have come in at a more significant time. If you honor your soul and are considering cosmetic surgery, check out this book!

HASH(0x9b35a3cc) out of 5 stars Your face is perfect! 12 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
And it's not about expression, age, or societal standards of beauty. (I love the section describing how average these standards really are!) Rosetree's version of the ancient Chinese art of face-reading shows that each facial trait indicates a possible benefit AND a possible challenge. And as one's life evolves, so do the facial features. You will find yourself appreciating others, and yourself, so much more when you learn the meaning of these traits and their evolution. (You'll be amazed how much just your eyebrows, and their changes over time, tell about you!!) There's beauty of a lasting sort in every face, and you will see faces differently forever after you read this book. It's lavishly illustrated with photos of famous people. Don't miss this chance to love your own face, and to think twice about the spiritual effects of cosmetic surgery (even Botox!).
