What does a yearbook photo have to do with future marital success? Can the CEO's appearance tell you anything about a company's quarterly earnings? In The Tell, psychologist Matthew Hertenstein reveals that our intuition is surprisingly good at using small clues to make big predictions, and shows how we can make better decisions by homing in on the right details. Drawing on rigorous research in psychology and brain science, Hertenstein explains how to hone our powers of observation to increase our predictive capacities. By training ourselves to read facial and bodily cues, we can accurately predict everything from divorce rates to sexual preferences, election results to the likelihood of corporate success. A charming testament to the power of the human mind, The Tell will, to paraphrase Sherlock Holmes, show us how to notice what we see.

"A study that is lively and engaging." (Publishers Weekly)

"A book full of observations"
Doesn't helping with poker. The writer is engaging in a wind baggy old neighbour kind of way. Lot's of books on the shelf just like it. Meh.
"Load of tosh"
Ok so well done for writing a book - which I have not - but seriously the content does not match to be description and is very limited - could have been covered in 45 minutes.
There are so many other factors that could have been explored - rather disappointing
