To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am teaching forensics and I thought it would be useful for the students. It is not exactly scientific and not totally applicable. I believe the questions are a little coercive. It shows you a sample and asks, "does this sample makes you think of someone stingy/economical or larger than life". If all the writing is on one corner of the paper you say stingy/economical. It does not necessarily mean that this is the first idea that comes to your mind when you see the writing sample...
It's got good information, but it's bigger than a college textbook. Most of the information could have been condensed down to a fraction of the size. I was looking for a reference manual, this is a text book.
i feel that i should read other handwriting analysis books to have a more educated point of view before rating the book. that being said, i found it interesting and felt it accurately described some of my own writing and the writing of people i know. it's very easy to read and reads quickly. take it out in public. it's a good conversation starter.
Very good reference book when doing Handwriting Analysis. Good book to start out with, as there are several exercises, and quizzes through the book. However, I give this book only 3 stares due to some of the off handed remarks made by the author regarding certain trait indicators, potentially misleading a beginner. A trait is only a trait.
