Reviews From The Critics
"Pick this book up first if you're new to or want to understand Handwriting Analysis. It is indeed an adventure. As one of my favourites, it's more than a basic introduction, offering straightforward information that is well explained and categorized and in enough detail to get you going. The additional chapters are as articulate and even more intiguing. While some books contain only enough information to tease and others give so much detail you're confused, this one is truly helpful. I frequently use it as a reference and am still surprised at how easy it is to use." Carmen Kirschling, President of The Ontario Chapter of The International Graphoanalysis Society. "The new chapters in this third edition make this an invaluable resource to the beginning Graphologist as well as to the seasoned analyst. As well, this book will appeal to parents and teachers who are genuinely interested in helping their children to learn and develop. It will help those who are looking for meaningful relationships. And, it will help anyone interested in knowing about their level of emotional intelligence. A fascinating and practical book, and very easy to follow." Elaine Charal, Master Graphoanalyst, President and Owner of Positive Strokes. www.handwritinganalysistoronto.com "Handwriting Analysis: An Adventure in Self Discovery is, as Peter describes it, truly "an adventure in self-discovery." The material is a clear and concise basic course in handwriting analysis. The organization is excellent; I particularly like how each characteristic is interpreted, both in its positive and negative aspects. Too, the various worksheets provided are excellent tools that facilitate interpretation. As well, the sections on kids and the signs of dishonesty are priceless additions. A valuable addition is the section on determining emotional intelligence, an often ignored, but very important understanding of self and of others. This book is one of the several books that I keep within reach and use quite frequently when I'm when I'm doing an analysis."
Len Ryan, Vice President of the Ontario Chapter of the International Graphoanalysis Society. "From the time I was a child, without knowing anything about the art and science of handwriting analysis, I often thought people's handwriting reflected their personalities. If I wanted to be like someone I would try mimicking their writing, but it never felt right. Peter's book explains all this and more. Whether you find it amusing entertainment or something more serious, I think you'll take something interesting away from this book. Highly recommended." Anne Wolfe "Having just finished teaching an accredited Ontario College, Introductory course in Handwriting Analysis to mostly Law and Security students, I can say that the choice of using Peter Dennis's book, Handwriting Analysis, An Adventure in Self-discovery, as our main reference text was a resounding success. The students said they liked the book and found it easy to read and understand; and from the dogged-eared look of some of them by the end of the course - proved that they were well read."
Paul Boivin, Certified Handwriting Analyst, NLP Trainer, President of Paul D. Boivin + Associates. "Congratulations on a nicely written manuscript. At The International Graphoanalysis Society, we all agree that this manual is an excellent informational tool and we are pleased to be recommending and promoting it to our members as a companion to our introductory program, The Eight Basic Steps to Graphoanalysis."
Kathleen Kusta, President, The International Graphoanalysis Society, Chicago, Illinois. "If you want a clear and organized introduction to this amazing subject, this is the book for you. I teach this subject and my students report that this book is easy to understand, comprehensive and a great reference that they refer to frequently."
Mary Ann Matthews, owner of handwriting.ca and Past President of the Ontario Chapter of the International Graphoanalysis Society. "I can't say enough about this book. Being very basic, it is terrific as a guide to my beginner course. It is clear and concise, and very easy for non-handwriting analysts to understand. In addition, it covers different subjects such as compatibility in relationships, children and how we can help them learn and develop, as well as learning about our emotional intelligence. Included in this book are many traits that are defined in our personality. It's a book that I keep going back to as I attempt to learn more about the human personality. Very fascinating."
Donna Browning, Past President of the Ontario Chapter of the International Graphoanalysis Society. "Here is a beautifully and clearly structured book which gives the reader insight into some aspects of handwriting analysis. It is both instructive and entertaining. For each personality trait Peter Dennis gives a positive and a negative meaning, a truly wise approach reminding us that we can use every one of our faculties either for good or for evil." Edith Leslie, Certified Graphologist "At last - a serious look at handwriting analysis for the lay person. Clear, concise and packed with valuable information. A fine resource."
Ann Marie Fish, Special Education Teacher "This book is a great introduction to Handwriting Analysis and chapter 10, on the subject of 65 different signs of potential danger and dishonesty, is well worth the price of the whole book." Anonymous "Peter Dennis's book on Handwriting Analysis is excellent. Easy to use, with clear examples and concise explanations. A great resource and one I would not be without. I recommend it highly."
Cathy Weeks, Secretary of the Ontario Chapter of the International Graphoanalysis Society. " Here is a concise and well organized manual with a ready-to-use analysis worksheet"
