“Handwriting Analysis: An Adventure in Self Discovery is, as Peter describes it, truly “an adventure in self-discovery.” The material is a clear and concise basic course in handwriting analysis. The organization is excellent; I particularly like how each characteristic is interpreted, both in its positive and negative aspects. Too, the various worksheets provided are excellent tools that facilitate interpretation. As well, the sections on kids and the signs of dishonesty are priceless additions. A valuable addition is the section on determining emotional intelligence, an often ignored, but very important understanding of self and of others. This book is one of the several books that I keep within reach and use quite frequently when I’m when I’m doing an analysis.”

“I can’t say enough about this book. Being very basic, it is terrific as a guide to my beginner course. It is clear and concise, and very easy for non-handwriting analysts to understand. In addition, it covers different subjects such as compatibility in relationships, children and how we can help them learn and develop, as well as learning about our emotional intelligence. Included in this book are many traits that are defined in our personality. It’s a book that I keep going back to as I attempt to learn more about the human personality. Very fascinating.”
Donna Browning, Past President of the Ontario Chapter of the International Graphoanalysis Society.

“Pick this book up first if you're new to or want to understand Handwriting Analysis. It is indeed an adventure. As one of my favourites, it's more than a basic introduction, offering straightforward information that is well explained and categorized and in enough detail to get you going. The additional chapters are as articulate and even more intiguing. While some books contain only enough information to tease and others give so much detail you're confused, this one is truly helpful. I frequently use it as a reference and am still surprised at how easy it is to use.”

Author does not show actual handwriting samples rather uses his own handwriting (I'm assuming) to show each example.

There are better books out there for handwriting analysis than this one. I believe the author is only showing a VERY basic outline of what you can with handwriting analysis.

My suggestions pick another book.
