Emotions Revealed


Renowned psychologist Paul Ekman explains the roots of our emotional responses-from anger and fear to sadness and happiness-and shows how these emotions cascade across our faces, revealing information to those who can decipher the clues.


The insights in Emotions Revealed provide us with the skills to recognize feelings in our spouses, children, business colleagues, even strangers on the street. Ekman translates his research into a practical, mind-opening guide to reading the emotions of those around us. He explains what triggers emotions and whether we can control them; shows how our body signals to others whether we are slightly sad or truly anguished, peeved or enraged; and teaches us how to distinguish between a polite smile and the genuine thing. Packed with unique exercises and photographs-and a new chapter on emotions and lying that discusses how to identify possible deceit “hot spots” in everyday life-Emotions Revealed is an indispensable resource for navigating our emotional world.
