  • Simple observations do help

    By TRP-ME
    I liked the basic facts to look for in common looks and behavior of a person to help understand how to better know how to work or socialize . Also some of the does and don’ts that can help others to know how they can embitter there own lives or deal with others.
  • All over the place

    By Gezie1287
    It is very difficult to follow. Each subsection highlights different points and there is very little cohesiveness. It is definitely something I'd read to pass time but would not recommend to anyone for whatever reason.
  • Really outdated

    By rumulous
    Concentrates on body types and makes lots of assumptions based on nothing but how fat or slim people are. Bad read
  • Great book

    By Tahanahahajah
    The content of the book is really amazing and interesting, however its too long a read and i found myself forcing my way through it.
  • An Honest Guide to People.

    By The Mr. French
    This book identifies 5 different systems and behavior that people are partial to. It is an in-depth look at appearance, tendencies, and dispositions for people of the Alimentive, Thoracic, Muscular, Osseous, and Cerebra type. While probably not the only way of discerning people and understanding them, this narrative makes clear the actions and features of people to certain systems that I had come across in life. I would reccommend it. It was a good read.
  • Entertaining read

    By cindyyyyrodd
    Don’t take it literal. And remember it was written around 1921. Still interesting to read.

  • Surprisingly helpful

    By Axleonex
    I had expected the book to be outdated, but the subject of analyzing people was handled surprisingly maturely given the time that it was written. It makes a full disclosure to inform the reader that this is not meant to be used to judge people. It assures the reader that the statistics used are only the numbers that have been proven consistent. Although I wouldn't say it helped me read other people better, it did help me better understand myself after finishing a self-analysis.
