Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

'A charming, sound, sane map to the world of emotions, the perfect guide' Daniel Goleman, author of EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.

Using 40 years of groundbreaking research, Paul Ekman explores why and when we become emotional and what happens when we do - the external signs and facial expressions. So much of what we communicate is non-verbal. In this very practical book, Paul Ekman helps the reader to observe the underlying, concealed emotions that we can observe in those around us, and understand why our bodies react in the ways they do.

EMOTIONS REVEALED also helps the reader to identify why they might feel 'overly' emotional in some situations, and why some people wear their heart on their sleeve whilst others manage to conceal their feelings, even from those close to them. Chapters include 'When do we get emotional?', 'Changing what we become emotional about' as well as 'Anger', 'Fear', 'Surprise' and 'Happiness'.

Most importantly, it shows how we can apply this understanding to everyday situations to improve our quality of life.

Biographie de l'auteur

Paul Ekman is a professor of psychology at the University of California and a world-renowned expert on facial expression, deception and emotion. He has consulted on and appeared in many television programmes in the UK and US and is the author or editor of 14 books and over 100 scientific papers.

Le livre contient des informations utiles mais j'attendais plus.
Je reconnais quant meme que le sujet est assez difficile.
Je pense aussi qu'il y a beaucoup d'information inutile a propos de la vie personelle de l'auteur.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Emotions Revealed: A thorough evaluation of emotions 7 octobre 2012
Par Yongyong Wu - Publié sur Amazon.com

Point of the review

As a student in Neuroscience class, I read this book because its discussion about emotions corresponds to my research topic in Pseudobulbar Palsy. The central focus of this book, emotions, caught my attention since emotions are a huge part of our lives and we are constantly dealing with our own as well as other people's emotions everyday. Thus understanding better of emotions, I may be able to improve relationships with people in a more conscious way.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

overall opinion of the book

I love how this book allows you to be able to reflect on yourself in terms of how you express emotions and how well you deal with them; as you're reading the book, you are slowly becoming aware of why certain people act a certain way (because of the impact of their emotional state) and being able to evaluate other people's emotions more accurately so that you can avoid conflicts to occur. This book is very practical to real life situations. I feel that reading this book definitely helped me to improve the quality of my emotional life in the sense that now I am more aware of my own and others' feelings through noticing the facial, vocal, and physical emotions expressed.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Style and structure of the book.

This book is written in first person by a professor, Dr. Paul Ekman, who has dedicated his research in emotions through scientific studies around the world. The materials discussed in the book are constructed with both his scientific findings and also his proposal of concepts from his observations that had not been scientifically tested.

The book is consisted a total of ten chapters, with the first four chapters discussing Dr. Ekman's research findings, explaining what emotions are and how they work, and how one can become more aware of the emotions. In the beginning Dr. Ekman would ask many questions to involve the readers into deeper thoughts. In the last six chapters, Dr. Ekman focused in more details on discussing how to deal with each type of emotions such as sadness, anger, surprise, fear, disgust, contempt, enjoyable emotions, and lies.

Throughout the book, Dr. Ekman would suggest a concept, such as the refractory period for anger, then he would elaborate on the issue with a real life example so that the reader can relate and understand the idea better. Not only that Dr. Ekman explained the important concepts/definition of certain emotions, he also explicitly suggested ways to deal with them, making the book even more useful for everyday life.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Synopsis of the book.

Emotions Across Cultures
In this section, Dr. Ekman explained how he began his area of research in emotions in the time of late 1950s. The main idea of this first chapter is that Dr. Ekman wanted to discuss the issue of whether emotions are universal or culturally variable. He obtained his conclusion through scientific experiments by traveling to various isolated villages that had no contact with the media and the outside world.

When Do We Become Emotional
In this chapter, Dr. Ekman listed the situations, a total of 9 pathways, in which we become emotional. These pathways were proposed in conclusion of research findings, and the experimental methods are briefly described in the text. There are triggers to all emotions, both socially learned and genetically inherited, and understanding the source of trigger will be beneficial in a variety of ways. "We share some triggers, just as we share the expressions for each emotion, but here are triggers that are not only culture-specific, they are individual-specific."

Changing What We Become Emotional About
"We do not seek to challenge why we are feeling a particular emotion; instead, we seek to confirm it."
"For a while we are in a refractory state, during which time our thinking cannot incorporate information that does not fit, maintain, or justify the emotions we are feeling."
With the information and concepts provided above, Dr. Ekman began to suggest ways that we could control our emotions such as how to weak our emotional triggers through various ways in order to change what we become emotional about; since most of the time the things we feel angry towards to may not necessarily be as harmful as we see it.

Behaving Emotionally
Most people have two main conflicts with emotions that they either over-control their emotions or they over-express it. In order to find the balance between expressing and controlling, Dr. Ekman identified many problems we encounter unconsciously that cause us to behave emotionally inappropriate such failure to recognize the source of emotion and jumping to conclusion too quickly. Thereafter he suggested many ways in which we could deal with the problems such as being more attentive to our emotions.

"One method people use to become more attentive to their emotions is to use the knowledge about the causes of each emotions."

In the rest of the book, Dr. Ekman addressed the following emotions of sadness, agony, anger, surprise, fear, disgust, contempt, enjoyable emotions, and lies. For each emotion, Dr. Ekman gave a detailed explanation of what kind of situations cause such emotion, how should we recognize such emotions in ourselves and others (illustrated pictures of facial expression are shown), and finally how we should use the information we perceived in a sense of how to deal with the emotions.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recommendation
I recommend this book to everyone because emotions are universal that we have to deal with everyday. I am sure everyone has experienced in a situation where someone become angry with you, and you became angry too because the other person's anger; such situations most of the time result in ugly conflicts. However after reading this book, you might consider the source that triggered such emotion and evaluated the other person's feelings before you can react emotionally so to avoid unnecessary conflicts. This book helps you to develop a stronger relationship with people, to improve one self's quality of life, and ultimately helps you to become a happier person. So this book is definitely for everyone, especially for those people who are experiencing emotional conflicts with families or significant others.

Reading this book has personally helped me because I know of someone who becomes frustrated very easily over trivial things. After reading this book, I am now more aware of his frustrations (breathing more heavily; eyebrows pulled together), and that I know during this refractory period (the period that he is continuously emotional), he cannot gather information that are not relevant to his frustration, so he would say hurtful things. Now that I am more aware and understand better of the source of his frustration, I do not take his words personally whenever he is under such emotional stress, and I have also learned to give him space whenever this emotion occurs, so that he will have time to get over his refractory period. This is so much better than me getting angry at him also. ☺

Paul Ekman, who is also author of the landmark book Unmasking The Face – A Guide To Recognizing Emotions From Facial Expression, has been at the tip of the spear in regards to the topic of emotions and behavioral psychology.

In Emotions Revealed – Recognizing Faces & Feelings To Improve Communications & Emotional Life, Ekman speaks at length throughout the book about the extensive research he has conducted throughout his life in respect to the emotional behaviour individuals display, and also offers ways of ascertaining whether those individuals are carrying deceit or not.

The book Emotions Revealed couples extremely well with Unmasking The Face because the former provides ample emotional data for reading/understanding individual behavior, while the latter offers dozens of visual examples of these emotions – happiness, surprise, fear, anger, disgust and sadness.

Ekman in Emotions Revealed helps individual glean information in a manner that is reasonable and easy to follow with the photographs used, and the exercises to carry out, which helps individuals seep within the mind of another potential person. This aids individuals in the comprehension of how others would behave in many emotional-charged situations.

The author states in the preface to the second edition that his goal is to ‘help people improve four essential skills’, which are:

First, becoming more consciously aware of when you are becoming emotional, even before you speak or act.
Second, choosing how you behave when you are emotional, so you achieve your goals without damaging other people.
Third, becoming more sensitive to how others are feeling.
Fourth, carefully using the information you acquire about how others are feeling.

Knowing the goals the author had in the beginning of the book, it can be said without equivocation that the author did a trenchant job at fulfilling his goal.

Not only did Ekman provide individuals throughout the book with extensive data that merges with his central goals, but he also carries it out in a clear and direct manner.

This book is indispensable in the field of emotions and behavior and it is an essential tool to understanding how people behave.

Kindest Regards,
Zy Marquiez

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Shining the light on covert aggression. Keep it and use it! 14 mai 2016

Emotions are suppressed and ignored in America. We see the ill effects in society every day. This book is great for being able to point to out facial expressions to people who are accustomed to passive aggression.

Having something in writing that is research based helps. I'm a supervisor and have one in my office for such occasions. Ideally you won't keep someone on board who can't know their emotions and express them in words instead of going covert.
