To Aristotle, the phrase was a sure indicator of character, and Renaissance sages considered ' face-reading ' a signs. Today we may no longer believe that people with small heads are fickle, or that large years are a sign of the tendency to chatter. Yet we are still inclined to like people -- even fall in love with them -- because of their faces, and we may dislike them just as smoothly and irrationally. We are is fascinated as our ancestors with the most human of all averages: the face. This slightly and provocative book explores the mysteries of the face." -- From the front fold over panel blurb.
