Sex, Lies, and Handwriting: A Top Expert Reveals the Secrets Hidden in Your Handwriting Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Handwriting expert Michelle Dresbold—the only civilian to be invited to the United States Secret Service's Advanced Document Examination training program—draws on her extensive experience helping law enforcement agencies around the country on cases involving kidnapping, arson, forgery, murder, embezzlement, and stalking to take us inside the mysterious world of crossed t's and dotted i's.

In Sex, Lies, and Handwriting, Dresbold explains how a single sentence can provide insight into a person's background, psychology, and behavior. Throughout the book, Dresbold explores the handwriting of sly politicians, convicted criminals, notorious killers, suspected cheats, and ordinary people who've written to Dresbold’s “The Handwriting Doctor” column for help. She shows you how to identify the signs of a dirty rotten scoundrel and a lying, cheating, backstabbing lover. And she introduces you to some of the most dangerous traits in handwriting, including weapon-shaped letters, “shark's teeth,” “club strokes,” and “felon’s claws.”

Dresbold also explains how criminals are tracked through handwritten clues and what spouses, friends, or employees might be hiding in their script. Sex, Lies, and Handwriting will have you paying a bit more attention to your—and everyone else’s—penmanship.

The topic of handwriting analysis has always intrigued me and this book was a great beginner’s guide to understanding the basics of graphology. Dresbold gives wonderful examples of the handwriting she discusses. She illustrates the major points of handwriting profiling be utilizing examples of criminals, madmen, and the average person. This was a relatively light and easy read that was always interesting. This is a great book for anyone interested in graphology that wants an easy to understand explanation of handwriting analysis.
