This book is actually super interesting. I got it for an essay I was writing in school, expecting to have to push myself through it, but I actually found myself sitting down and reading it as if I were reading a fiction novel. Of course I had to take notes too, but that wasn't too much of a problem. I got it used, and it was in really good condition as well.

This will give you "Face" when explaining whom you find attractive.Pretty much every bit of relevant scientific study that's been recently done on the human brain's involvement with faces is touched on, one way or another, in this book. The chapters follow one another in a very logical sequence, and the arguments are bolstered with a wealth of photographs that you can use to very effectually test them on yourself, in the course of which you'll discover that much of what the author says is dead-on. You'll never look at another's face, or your own, quite so casually after this.

I love this book. It's well written, incredibly well researched and beautifully illustrated. And don't let the cover fool you, it may cover some science of sexual attraction, but the content is informative for any relationship. I'm using my new-found knowledge to help me draw faces that better represent the emotions I try to convey in my art. Thank you, David Perrett, for making the science of faces even more attractive!

I wanted more in-depth information and I got tired of this book. I skim-read the last 1/3 of it and was glad to be finished.
  • Marirne
Very good book. Learned a lot about what we see in the human face and what we like about it.

While there are some interesting bits of information, the author is trying to find a scientific justification for how people feel about beauty. He uses computer imaging to merge or distort various facial features to explain variation from an imagined "average." It was too dense and became very uninteresting.
This book so far is interesting. I am only a few chapters in but i like the picture examples they show. I only wish there were more samples of tests conducted and in color. Otherwise, a great read.
