Renowned psychologist Paul Ekman explains the roots of our emotional responses-from anger and fear to sadness and happiness-and shows how these emotions cascade across our faces, revealing information to those who can decipher the clues. Ekman's research and practical training were prominently featured in Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Blink, and the insights in Emotions Revealed provide us with the skills to recognize feelings in our spouses, children, business colleagues, even strangers on the street.
