Publisher Comments:

“A tour de force. If you read this book, youll 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 Gladwells bestseller Blink, Ekmans 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.

Paul Ekman is the worlds foremost expert on facial expressions and the professor emeritus of psychology at the University of California Medical School in San Francisco. He has served as an adviser to police departments, antiterrorism groups, and animation studios, and Ekmans research inspired Lie to Me, the FOX TV series. The author of fifteen books, he lives in northern California.

"Emotions are what 'make life livable,' writes psychologist Ekman . . . His 40-odd years of research have led him to the conclusion . . . that emotions, and their 10,000 facial expressions, are largely universal . . . Ekman addresses in detail the 'cascade of changes' that occur physiologically in an individual in the throes of one of five salient emotional categories . . . in his engaging style, he asks his readers to conjure these emotions by studying photographs, meditating upon their own experiences."—Publishers Weekly
"Ekman's book . . . posits that feelings of sadness, anger, surprise, disgust, and happiness lead to the production of the same looks across cultures, although these expressions may be minimized or exaggerated to accord with cultural norms. While this was controversial when Ekman first studied the emotional displays of New Guinea natives in the 1960s, it has been a standard part of social science and popular understanding for several decades. The second point is that we can better 'read' others if we analyze the minimal versions of these universal expressions."—Mary Ann Hughes, Neill Public Library, Pullman, Washington, Library Journal
 
"Emotions are what 'make life livable,' writes psychologist Ekman in this unique hands-on volume that flirts shrewdly with psychology and anthropology. His 40-odd years of research have led him to the conclusion (originally presented by Charles Darwin) that emotions, and their 10,000 facial expressions, are largely universal. While an American smile may look much like a grin expressed by a Fore tribesman of Papua New Guinea, what actually triggers the toothy twinkle is culturally, socially and even individually determined. Emotions theselves can't be turned off, but they can be controlled, and Ekman draws upon the Buddhist concept of mindfulness to explain how, by tuning in to one's own emotional triggers, one can develop a heightened 'attentiveness,' thereby side-stepping future blowouts. Ekman addresses in detail the 'cascade of changes' that occur physiologically in an individual in the throes of one of five salient emotional categories (sadness, anger, fear, disgust and enjoyment). In his engaging style, he asks his readers to conjure these emotions by studying photographs, meditating upon their own experiences and, if that fails, to contort their faces into specific expressions, for Ekman has found that physical manifestations actually generate corresponding emotional responses in the brain. It is Ekman's hope that once these expressions have been identified, his readers will benefit from an increased sensitivity, and will possess the skills necessary for approaching others gripped with apparent emotion."—Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Beautifully interweaves research with anecdotes, recommendations, and the behind-the-scenes flubs, accidental discoveries and debates . . . that are the essence of scientific inquiry. --Scientific American

A renowned expert in nonverbal communication, Paul Ekman led a revolution in our scientific understanding of emotions. In Emotions Revealed, he assembles his research and theories to provide a comprehensive look at the evolutionary roots of human emotions, including anger, sadness, fear, disgust, and happiness.

Drawing on decades of fieldwork, Ekman shows that emotions are deeply embedded in the human species. In the process, he answers such questions as: What triggers emotions and can we stop them? 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? Unique exercises and photographs help readers identify emotions in themselves and others.

Emotions Revealed is a practical, mind-opening, and potentially life-changing exploration of science and self.

Taylor, September 15, 2008 (view all comments by Taylor)
In Emotions Revealed, Ekman discusses how a person's face can be "read" to determine what kind of emotions s/he is feeling. The author then proceeds to focus on emotions such as contempt, disgust, sadness, happiness, and anger. In each chapter he has a model who shows different expressions. He explains in great detail how to read the facial expressions as well as what they seem to mean. He also has an exercise that people can do to use facial expressions to invoke feelings. Overall, it's a fascinating read, which shows how much the face is integral to feeling emotion as well as expressing it. At times, the book is dry and can be a bit of a slog to read through, but Ekman does a fairly comprehensive job of explaining the subject. I'm already eager to see how I can apply the concepts in my everyday communication.
