I've read a lot of handwriting books and have been teaching my self about graphology and one of the most important aspects of learning the science is to be able to identify a particular type of stroke. While this book describes with words many types of strokes, for a beginner, a physical look at the stroke for example, of what a double looped O looks like, is vital to the learning process. The examples which are given are actually photo copied and blurry and not large enough on the page to get a good idea. Not a big help to a beginner. Maybe there was a budgeting problem in the idiot's guide department??

It really is a very basic book. At first you get the idea that by the time you read the entire book, you're going to feel as if you've learned something. Although it showed me basic concepts and margins, slants, etc. When it comes down to individual letters it's very lacking, and left me disappointed. e.g. a paragraph on K's, a paragraph on F's (out of a 400+ page book?!); examples if you're lucky. There was plenty of examples and explaining margins, slants, and some letter height (maybe because of this there was no more room for indepth knowledge behind each letter?) Only a few letters and basic things to lookout for were covered, such as the vengeance hooks at the bottom of letters and the crossbars of T's... I will give this book kudos on explaining the variants of stroke pressure to the beginner, that seemed the main focus, along with the overall look of samples. If you're looking for a beginner's book to dip your toe into graphology/handwriting analysis, this is it. If you're a beginner like me who's looking for a better beginner's book that covers a variety of things more in depth, this book is not it.
