Présentation de l'éditeur

This reprint edition of Ekman and Friesen's breakthrough research on the facial expression of emotion uses scores of photographs showing emotions of surprise, fear, disgust, anger, happiness, and sadness. The authors of UNMASKING THE FACE explain how to identify these basic emotions correctly and how to tell when people try to mask, simulate, or neutralize them. It features several practical exercises that help actors, teachers, salesmen, counselors, nurses, law-enforcement personnel and physicians -- and everyone else who deals with people -- to become adept, perceptive readers of the facial expressions of emotions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lie to me...the truth lies here ! 3 juillet 2010
Par Cortex
Voici une des publications du Pr Paul Ekman qui a inspiré la série Lie To Me. Vous n'arriverez sans doute pas à lire les micros-expressions en refermant ce livre mais vous regarderez vos semblables d'un autre œil. Bien que conçu de manière scientifique, le discours reste simple et didactique, il y a même des photos à découper pour s'entraîner seul ou à deux à différencier les expressions faciales. La réalité rejoint la fiction: la vérité n'est plus ailleurs: elle se lit sur votre visage !

C'est certainement le livre le plus explicite écrit par Paul Ekman (beaucoup de photos pour illustrer). On apprécie particulièrement les photos à découper à la fin qui permettent de s'entraîner.
En ce qui me concerne, j'ai trouvé ce que j'y cherché : un guide pour s'initier à la reconnaissance faciale sans trop rentrer dans les détails (bien que cela ne permette pas de devenir un véritable expert).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Un peu trop academique pour une lecture ludique. 26 août 2011
Par Ivan_GH
Le livre est bien ecrit et très facile à lire. Il est un peu trop academique pour une lecture ludique. L'information est détaillé et concreté.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Have Primer for Learning to Recognize Facial Expressions 14 juillet 2006
Par D - Publié sur
Ekman is a leading authority on the study of the facial expressions and their relation to emotion, and this book is a methodical and thorough introduction to the field, with special focus on recognizing what he calls the six basic universally expressed emotions: happiness, fear, anger, surprise, disgust/contempt, and sadness.

Ekman provides clear, well-detailed instructions for recognizing each of these emotions, and the book includes plenty of photos to illustrate the different facial contortions of each emotion. The only complaint I have is that I had to do a lot of page flipping back and forth to read Ekman's remarks and subsequently refer to the relevant picture. Perhaps a future edition could be better formatted to make it easier for the reader to view the expression alongside Ekman's comments.

In addition to writing about specific emotions, Ekman also covers some fascinating related topics such as recognizing facial deceit and discovering the patterns of one's own facial expressions, i.e., what you're telling the world with your own face.

Ekman is an academic and his writing shows it; he's precise, methodical, thorough, and careful in the extent of his claims. Readers who are new to the subject of reading facial expressions but are seriously committed to learning about it will find this an invaluable book.

(Ekman's later work, "Emotions Revealed," is also a great read and contains much of the same information as "Unmasking the Face," although I found the former to be lighter on technical information and practice faces, and more focused on the larger reflections Ekman has made looking back on his work over the last few decades.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 About "Unmasking the face" 9 septembre 2005
Par Serge A. Winitzki - Publié sur
This seems to be an excellent resource for someone who would like to study facial expressions or improve one's ability to recognize emotions by looking at faces. The text is not just a popular blurb but a fully scientifically backed and high-level textbook designed for a serious student. There are exercises, suggestions on how to overcome one's difficulties or shortcomings, lots of photographs of faces, detailed comments on how certain facial features reflect certain emotions, and so on. I am looking forward to studying everything this book has to offer. Worth every penny!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great content, few difficulties on kindle 4 mai 2010

Paul Ekman gives a very useful and comprehensive instruction on how to read emotions from facial expressions. I probably would have given five stars for the printed edition. But having downloaded it on my kindle I can't use chapter ten properly, where the reader is invited to cut out the pictures for practise. In my opinion that's a real disadvantage one should know before deciding which edition to buy.

I have been a writer since I was fourteen years old. Being a writer, you watch people, you study them from afar, you take note of those small looks, those simple smiles, those cringed expressions, and those annoyed twitches that define their feelings on any host of a number of topics or events. People become easy to figure out. I've been a salesman, and the rule of thumb there is, you have seven seconds, from the point that you outstretch your hand, to the point that you say, "Hello, how are you today?" to size a person up, to figure out what type of mood they're in, are they serious about buying, or are they there really to just look. As a heavy man with a taste for beautiful women, you have to know when a woman is interested, when she wants that moment of escalation, when it's the right time to touch her hand, and the right time to kiss her, and the right time to suggest a change of venue. And last but not least, at a poker table, asking those four simple words, "Do you have them?" can mean all the difference between walking home with empty pockets and walking home with a few extra thousand dollars.

People wear their emotions on their sleaves, whether they want to admit it or not, we are all emotional creatures, bound to bouts of anger, happiness, sadness, contempt, disgust, fear, and surprise. This book is a great book to start your education with, though I'm personally more in favor of Emotions Revealed by Eckman. This is an informative book, well written, with the strongest grasp you're going to find on the topic of facial expressions that is not in the academic field. I will be the first to say, for those who have a great interest in understanding how to read people, that this book is not the only material you will ever need. No, there are at least three commercial texts on body language that everyone should have, then, I would recommend for those who seek greater knoweldge, getting home study courses from some of the professionals. Kevin Hogan, Patti Wood, Janine Driver, and the such. I have personally only tried Kevin Hogan's course and I have no regrets.

Now, to some fun stuff. I'm 22, so, I'm always looking on how things can be used for either dating, or party entertainment. After studying Paul Eckman's books, I have been able to consistently 8 out of 10 times, guess the card in a person's hand, by reading their facial expressions, in 5 to 7 questions. It's a fun trick that leaves everyone amazed and I'm asked to do it a lot because people believe they can't be read. Here's the fun secret about people, the harder they try not to be read, the easier they can be read. Though the book does not delve into micro-expressions, for which, Emotions Revealed, Second Edition: Recognizing Faces and Feelings to Improve Communication and Emotional Lifedoes a far clearer job with, this book is still a strong foundation into the knowledge of the face and emotions.

I've said before that with a clear understanding of body language and the knowledge of how to use persuasion and speak deliberately, you become able to sell anything, get any job, seduce any woman (if you're a guy), and just have a lot more fun and control in and of your life.

Books on body langauge that I would recommend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Ultimate Guide for Reading Others 1 avril 2009
Par Vincent Harris - Publié sur
I've been familiar with Ekmans work for several years now; I have found nothing else that even comes close to providing the reader with the knowledge they need to master the science of reading the emotions of others by decoding their facial expressions. Ekman is the king!
