This is an excellent book that was both at times slow to read, and enormously fascinating. For me the challenge came as I was very interested in the topic, but would get slowed down by the details (of which there are many). But really, why would you want a general book about emotions. If you're like me, you nt to be able to better understand the emotions in those around us--and that is going to take effort.

It's worth it... ( )

As a general review of emotions this book was average. The recognition of minute facial expressions aspect was poorly organized, wordy and really quite tedious. Perhaps I will be more aware of true smiles in the future. Apparently the eye muscles cannot be tricked when there is no true happy emotion behind the smile. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805083391, Paperback)

"A tour de force. If you read this book, you'll never look at other people in quite the same way again."--Malcolm Gladwell
 
Renowned psychologist Paul Ekman explains the roots of our emotions--anger, fear, disgust, sadness, and happiness--and shows how they cascade across our faces, providing clear signals to those who can identify the clues. As featured in Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Blink, Ekman's Facial Action Coding System offers intense training in recognizing feelings in spouses, children, colleagues, even strangers on the street.

In Emotions Revealed, Ekman distills decades of research into a practical, mind-opening, and life-changing guide to reading the emotions of those around us. He answers such questions as: How does our body signal to others whether we are slightly sad or anguished, peeved or enraged? Can we learn to distinguish between a polite smile and the genuine thing? Can we ever truly control our emotions? Packed with unique exercises and photographs, and a new chapter on emotions and lying that encompasses security and terrorism as well as gut decisions, Emotions Revealed is an indispensable resource for navigating our emotional world.
