February 2013 - Emotions Revealed by Paul Ekman

Details from

Renowned psychologist Paul Ekman explains the roots of our emotions--anger, fear, disgust, sadness, and happiness--and shows how they cascade across our faces, providing clear signals to those who can identify the clues. As featured in Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Blink, Ekman's Facial Action Coding System offers intense training in recognizing feelings in spouses, children, colleagues, even strangers on the street.

In Emotions Revealed, Ekman distills decades of research into a practical, mind-opening, and life-changing guide to reading the emotions of those around us. He answers such questions as: How does our body signal to others whether we are slightly sad or anguished, peeved or enraged? Can we learn to distinguish between a polite smile and the genuine thing? Can we ever truly control our emotions? Packed with unique exercises and photographs, and a new chapter on emotions and lying that encompasses security and terrorism as well as gut decisions, Emotions Revealed is an indispensable resource for navigating our emotional world.

    I thought maybe this time we could do a little extra to breathe a little more life into the meetups. How about everybody prepare at least one question for the group as well as one thing you liked and one thing you didn't like about the book. If you are feeling frisky come with more than one question. I figured that way we can go around the circle and give everyone a chance to speak and get involved in the discussion. Also everyone do your homework and come with at least one book to nominate for the next meetup. I think if we all come with at least this much the discussions will be a little more lively! Using sticky notes for book markers for interesting points in your book can be a great way of keeping track of points to bring up at the meeting and you can jot down notes on them! See you all next month!
