In this popular American book from the 1920s, accomplished public speaker and self-help charlatan Elsie Lincoln Benedict outlines her pseudo-scientific system of "Human Analysis". She proposes that, within the human race, five sub-types have developed through evolutionary processes, each with its own distinct character traits and corresponding outward appearance. She offers to teach the reader how to recognise these five types of people and understand their innate differences. Her ideas have never been taken seriously by the scientific community, but this book is considered a classic within its genre and remains in print today. Summary by Carl Manchester.



- Good book

I opted fornthe audiobook version and would definitely advise against it. Late chapter 1 or 2 was spoken by a Chinese woman with a very thick and hard to understand accent. I recommend the book but don't get the audio version due to what I previously mentioned and the book refers to charts/figures that you also lose out on with the audio version.


- Great book

I always liked the idea of being able to read people and know a lot about them even before they start speaking. This book is simply the best in the fild that i found so far. Highly recommended. Thanks for the good work guys :)

It was interesting to see that this was more stereotypical than scientific. It's funny at times but may cause some offense to those whom are overweight. You should hear/read this because it is interesting.
