Product description

From the Inside Flap

Recall a time when you were blissfully happy, utterly despondent, or furiously angry - a single, raw emotion can be an incredibly powerful thing to experience. Whatever culture or background we come from, emotions play a vital role in all of our lives and more specifically in every relationship and interaction that takes place within them. They can add colour and drama to our existence whether subtly or passionately felt, but they can also be incredibly confusing and even damaging. In Emotions Revealed, Paul Ekman, a world-renowned psychologist and expert on non verbal communication, draws on forty years of groundbreaking research to provide a revealing, fascinating and above all, practical tour. In doing so, he explores when and why we become emotional and what happens when we do, from the changes that occur inside our bodies to the signals that we give through our body language, voices and our faces - the muscle movements of which can be combined into more than 10,000 configurations. Within the pages of this stunning and mind-opening book, Ekman answers such questions as: What are the most common emotional triggers and is it possible to bring them under control? Why do we sometimes become overly emotional or experience an emotional response that is inappropriate and can we do anything about it? Why are some people good at masking their emotions, while others wear their hearts on their sleeves? Emotions Revealed contains a test to find out how good you are at spotting emotions, help in recognising and understanding their subtlest signs in ourselves and others, and exercises to improve your awareness of the bodily sensations they produce. Most importantly of all, it contains information on how to apply all of this to everyday life - we couldn't live without our emotions, but it is possible to live better with them. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Reviews are just starting to come in: 'Here Paul Ekman doyen of contemporary emotion researchers, turns to the practical management of emotion in everyday life. The result is an outstanding example of popular scientific writing.'NEW SCIENTIST 'There are some fascinating titbits along the way. I was struck by his suggestion thatwhile emotions are vital tools for dealing with the outside world, moods area destructive by-product and that we'd be better off without them. Ekman canbe riveting on the minutae of facial expressions, especially the way that anexpression can be observed even when an emotion is being half-felt or suppressed.'Robert Hanks, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A brilliant and gripping read'THE GOO --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
