Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ekman (psychology, UC San Francisco) presents a work that was well known during Darwin's lifetime, providing notes throughout, as well as an introduction, afterword, and appendices. Darwin's text itself goes into great detail describing facial and bodily expressions corresponding to dozens of emotions in humans, dogs, horses, apes, and other animals. Photographs, drawings and woodcuts illustrate the expressions described. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Oliver Sacks
Darwin's most readable and human book, full of enchanting observations, provocative theories, and remarkable photographs....This new comprehensive edition of "Expression" will introduce a new generation of readers to Darwin's masterpiece, undiminished and intensely relevant even 125 years after publication. -- Oliver Sacks
