Review quote

McNichol's commonsense explanations are salted with wry humor and ironic observations on the handwriting of the famous as well as the infamous. No one, including the reader, is safe from her barbs. This is an excellent introduction to graphology ... and an incentive to type all correspondence! Library Journal 19940103show more

Our customer reviews

For someone who's getting started in handwriting analysis this is the go-to book. Everything is well supported with samples. The only flaw would be that everything is equally represented - and so with some of the more difficult things to spot, there aren't enough lines/samples devoted to it. But if you have a ''good eye'' that won't be an issue while learning to analyse.show more
