Psychologist and author of Emotions Revealed, Paul Ekman has been studying emotion for over 40 years specialising in the expression, and more recently on the physiology, of emotion. It shows. Emotions Revealed focuses on the universal emotions--the ones experienced by all human beings and for which there are clear universal expressions (sadness, anger, surprise, fear, disgust, contempt and enjoyment). The goal of the book is to help the reader better understand and improve their emotional lives in practical ways.
The fascinating opening chapter describes the history and development of Ekman's research and things just get more and more interesting as we get closer to the emotions themselves. He leads us to the big questions: Why do we become emotional when we do? What triggers each of our emotions and how and when we can change what we become emotional? Will emotion always, somehow (in a "micro-expression" perhaps) reveal itself? Ekman also explains how we can become more attentive to our emotions as we have them and so increase the possibility of behaving in emotionally more constructive ways.
Having prepared the territory Ekman then moves to physiological ground explaining that each emotion has unique signals, most readily identified in the face and voice, that generate a unique pattern of sensations in our body. By becoming better acquainted with those sensations we may become aware early enough in our emotional response that we have some chance to choose, if we like, whether to go along or interfere with the emotion. We are also made aware of the connection this process has to the Buddhist practice and ideal of "mindfulness" through Ekman's discussions with the Dalai Lama. The appendix contains a set of photographs designed to test our skill at spotting the subtlest signs of the various emotions which the reader is advised to take before beginning the book. --Larry Brown -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

""Emotions Revealed" will leave everyone who reads it more intelligent about their emotional life . . . A charming, sound, sane map to the world of emotions, the perfect guide." --Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence"

Having the information about feelings of other persons would it even give you the right to talk about with them? Actually, are you the right person to give that comforting? Those and more questions are handled in this book. But the most nice thing are the pictures of Ekman himself and his daughter. The explanations and composite facial studies unveil different movements and positions of mouth nose lips eye-browns and eye-lids. A really amazing information is the fact that we can influence our emotion by using backpropagation technique, that is to say by imitating and tension those facial muscles consciously which are in action when a specific emotion is triggered by our brain and limbic system. What is the difference between emotion and mood? How long does it takes to die away or clear a "fall in love" imprint?
What are the sixteen enjoyable emotions and what exactly is the emotion called naches and fiero. How do we name them in German or French? This book generates wonderfull questions and thoughts which might help everybody to cope much more better with one's own and that of their spouses bad emotions.
