Von Paoli am 30. Dezember 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
Ich liebte es. Dieses Buch ist so fesselnd, dass man es beim Lesen beinahe verschlingt. Es beinhaltet eine Menge Informationen zu dem Thema und es werden viele Beispiele gezeigt, anhand derer man die Analyse selbst nachvollziehen und erlernen kann. Man muss aber dazu sagen, dass die meisten (ca. 80 %) der Beispiele von Verbrechern (viele Serienmörder) stammen, und deren Geschichten auch erzählt werden, also ist das Buch vielleicht nicht geeignet für allzu zartbesaitete LeserInnen.

Alles in allem ist es aber spannend aufgebaut, es reißt den Leser mit in die Welt der Analyse und es gibt immer wieder Aufgaben, bei denen man selbst zum Miträtseln animiert wird.

Unterhaltsam. Faszinierend. Fesselnd. Es wird nie langweilig.

Riveting and of Very Good Value 30. Dezember 2012
Von Deborah Dolen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book because of the credentials and acumen behind the author - which are as high as credentials can get in the field of graphology and/or handwriting analysis. Her book is not marketed as a complete course - nor should anyone expect that. However, she does cover a lot of basis and any principles you do learn are SOLID and a result of many experts, (teachers) in her educational profile and not just theory of one or two self proclaimed experts (who are best avoided.)

I say this because if you really want to enter the world of graphology and/or handwriting analysis, you need authors who have studied as a team player and from good sources to learn the right way. It is very hard to be any good if you learned from theories that were never streamlined or just interpretations concocted by an author. Unfortunately, some authors proclaim they have "the only book you will ever need," and this is so not true. This is a science and an on-going education. So, whether you are moderately interested in graphology and/or handwriting analysis, or want to be a master someday - this is a great book to have in your collection.

When this author makes statements she usually explains "why" she came to that conclusion, which also helps you learn. So, she teaches horizontally, not vertically. Meaning the author speaks to you and not at you. She is also a great writer and keeps your attention throughout the entire book and not just parts.

The amount of time she spent on each story really floored me. The author made sure she knew what she was talking about when it came to all the high profile cases and material, and she has more stats and real images pertaining to them, than I have seen in my own studies and writing. I attribute that to the fact her education is as "inside" as it can get. By that I mean her education in part by the government. Obviously they can use real evidence when teaching and have access to some evidentary items or theories not always available to the general public, (moi).

Trying not to be a spoiler, she proved me wrong in my own book - regarding the Ramsey note - I felt the writer was foreign because the characters seemed written from right to left. It never occurred to me a person could just switch to their non-dominate hand and write away. Again, she had access to a lot more information than I ever did, and every time I was sure she was wrong - as I read on, she was correct and full of documentation to support her final conclusion on every item.

If you want a real page turner where you also learn as you go - her book is a great one ! Just remember one tendency may be cancelled out by another tendency, most evaluations should be done as a "whole" and with several samples, so be very well educated before you start figuring someone is Satan incarnate or a real Mother Theresa.

Awesome first book on handwriting analysis, but BEWARE! 9. Oktober 2011
Von Joseph Dewey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent introductory book on handwriting. Why is it so great? It's because the author analyzes handwriting of dozens of historical bandits, miscreants, and murderers, to try to find out if they're guilty or not. This book tells the sordid details of some of the worst scoundrels of the last 150 years, and everyone wants to know the juicy details.

And are they guilty? Yes, they all are. That's why you should beware--after you read this book, you're not going to have any skills of analyzing normal people's handwriting, but you will know how to analyze a killer's handwriting. For a couple days after reading this book, I would grab people's handwriting, suspiciously eye them and their handwriting, and then after a few minutes of staring them down, say, 'okay, you're safe.' I'd recommend another, more boring book on handwriting analysis right after you finish this book, to balance you out. Beware, and don't just read this one book.

This book is really only 1/3rd handwriting analysis, and 2/3rds whodunit mystery book. That's why it's a great introductory book on handwriting analysis is that it's a fun, quick read that educates you at the same time it entertains you. If you're looking for boring textbook, pick another book.

I've wanted to learn about graphology for a long time, but the other books just seemed so boring, and I never made it past the first chapter. Thanks to Ms. Dresbold for writing a handwriting analysis book that everyone can enjoy, and read quickly!

+Awesome first book on handwriting analysis
+Makes handwriting analysis fun and exciting
+You can read straight through this book and learn while you're entertained, without having to do any boring exercises.

-Mainly centers on the handwriting of criminals, so it might make you suspicious of everyone, including normal people.
-Talks a lot about murderers, so it might be a little dark if you're not used to watching things like CSI
-Isn't very in depth, but it will make you excited enough about handwriting analysis that you'll be excited to read another more in-depth book.

Fascinating--and fun! 20. Dezember 2006
Von Frederic B. Sargent - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a cleverly constructed, highly entertaining book that teaches us what our handwriting style reveals about ourselves and others, including many notables from Jack the Ripper to Elvis Presley to whoever wrote the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note. It is an easy read that has made it around our office quickly and led to some fun-filled discissions about each other's handwritten notes. In a way it reminds us of the popular science we know about body language, although handwriting seems to tell us so much more. Dresbold is an "expert" on this subject who, characteristic of the best of those who are tops in their field, can present it in a way that is understandable and enjoyable for a wide audience. Highly recommended.

Such a Tease 6. April 2007
Von mzBEE - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I loved it. This book is riveting and will have you turning pages filled with so much information that makes sense. I enjoyed reading each chapter, looking over the examples she provides in the book. It all makes perfect sense. What did you think of the Jon Benet Ramsey kidnap note? Facinating. I was convinced as I read the analysis and saw each example and it matched the mom. It reminded me so much of what Dayle Hinman (an FBI criminal profiler) says when she is forming a profile of the criminal though Dayle Hinman doesn't use handwriting as a tool. The only downfall was that I wanted information and it wasn't there. This book doesn't teach you handwriting anaylsis, it merely introduces you to it. I'm intrigued. I want more. Very entertaining. Facinating. Riveting. You won't be bored.

Learn in bits & pieces. Not great for beginners 26. April 2011
Von IDIGFLICKS - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I've read 4 handwriting analysis books so far- this was the first one I picked up. Although I will say it was interesting enough to keep me reading I didn't preen much useful information from it because of the format- or lack thereof. There were introductions into topics one piece at a time and then it would jump to another or say 'you'll learn about this later/we talked about this earlier'. It never seemed like a full-on lesson. And I found it hard to trudge through the pages trying to connect this piece with that part and so on.

It was almost more of a look at what graphology can do rather than a useful tool for learning it. There were plenty of true crime cases and the handwriting profiles that went with them. However, it always seemed to me that hindsight prevailed in these profiles, even though a few times she mentions that no prior knowledge is needed or is better that you don't have any. Many times the author came off as more of a braggart, seemingly using her book as a solicitation for new clients rather than a guide to spark interest in the public about the field.

Also, in every example given, only the highlighted topic for that section was pointed out in the handwriting sample. I would have liked to see all the traits of the sample pointed out. And depending on what page you were on, the translation of a trait would mean something totally different from sample to sample even though the trait stayed the same. I'm sure it's all part of the art of translation, but for learning purposes made it very difficult to pinpoint what to look for and how to interpret it.

Overall, it was insightful into how it can be used in solving crimes and other tasks, but jumpy in lesson topics and lacking in full explanations.
If looking for an actual textbook type that's easy to read AND learn I highly reccommend
1. "Handwriting Analysis; Putting It to Work for You" by Andrea McNichol
Handwriting Analysis : Putting It to Work for You
2. "Handwriting Analysis: A Complete Self-Teaching Guide" by Scott P. Hollander (also listed in places as P. Scott Hollander)
Handwriting Analysis: A Complete Self-teaching Guide
