Face reading is a traditional Chinese art that can be applied to medicine as well as to business affairs and to personal relationships. I remember reading many years ago that when Margaret Thatcher visited China she was introduced to Madame Chou Enlai, a woman educated in some of the old traditions of China. The first thing Madame Chou Enlai said to her after inspecting her face was "I must congratulate you on your excellent constitution". Thatcher later became famous for her ability to work up to twenty hours a day.
Lillian Bridges started learning face reading at the age of five from her Chinese grandmother whose favourite saying was "From birth until the age of 25, you have the face that your mother gave you. From 25 to 50, you create your own face. And, from 50 on, you have the face that you deserve".
This lovely book is clearly written by someone who has been immersed in reading faces all her life and who spent twenty years before writing it, studying further from Chinese medical and other texts and from family members. It clearly lays out all the theories and principles of face reading, mostly relating to understanding personality ( but also in a final chapter to medical diagnosis) and illustrates these with numerous black and white and colour photographs.
This is simply the best book on face reading that we have seen, and if the subject fascinates you, you just have to get it.
