About Paul Ekman
Paul Ekman (born February 15, 1934) is an American psychologist who is a pioneer in the study of emotions and their relation to facial expressions. He has created an "atlas of emotions" with more than ten thousand facial expressions, and has gained a reputation as "the best human lie detector in the world".
He was ranked 59th out of the 100 most cited psychologists of the twentieth century. Ekman conducted seminal research on the specific biological correlates of specific emotions, demonstrating the universality and discreteness of emotions in a Darwinian approach.

From breaking the law to breaking a promise, how do people lie and how can they be caught?
In this revised edition, Paul Ekman, a renowned expert in emotions research and nonverbal communication, adds a new chapter to present his latest research on his groundbreaking inquiry into lying and the methods for uncovering lies. Ekman has figured out the most important behavioral clues to deceit; he has developed a one-hour self-instructional program that trains people to observe and understand "micro expressions"; and he has done research that identifies the facial expressions that show whether someone is likely to become violent—a self-instructional program to train recognition of these dangerous signals has also been developed.
Telling Lies describes how lies vary in form and how they can differ from other types of misinformation that can reveal untruths. It discusses how a person’s body language, voice, and facial expressions can give away a lie but still fool professional lie hunters?even judges, police officers, drug enforcement agents, and Secret Service agents.
'You'll never look at people in quite the same way again. EMOTIONS REVEALED is a tour de force' Malcolm Gladwell, bestselling author of BLINK
'A fascinating and enormously helpful picture of our emotional lives' John Cleese
'A charming, sound, sane map to the world of emotions, the perfect guide' Daniel Goleman, author of EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.
Using 40 years of groundbreaking research, Paul Ekman explores why and when we become emotional and what happens when we do - the external signs and facial expressions. So much of what we communicate is non-verbal. In this very practical book, Paul Ekman helps the reader to observe the underlying, concealed emotions that we can observe in those around us, and understand why our bodies react in the ways they do.
EMOTIONS REVEALED also helps the reader to identify why they might feel 'overly' emotional in some situations, and why some people wear their heart on their sleeve whilst others manage to conceal their feelings, even from those close to them. Chapters include 'When do we get emotional?', 'Changing what we become emotional about' as well as 'Anger', 'Fear', 'Surprise' and 'Happiness'.
Most importantly, it shows how we can apply this understanding to everyday situations to improve our quality of life.
Emotion in the Human Face, originally published in 1972, was the first volume to evaluate and integrate all research on facial expression of emotion since Darwin published The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals a century earlier. In this edition Dr. Ekman presented a detailed, critical discussion of research involving the face and emotion, focusing on the complex conceptual and methodological issues involved in this study, and settling many outstanding controversies including whether facial expression accurately represents emotion, and whether some facial expressions are universal. In 1982, Dr. Ekman expanded, reorganized, annotated, and cross-referenced the contents of the first edition, bringing the review of basic research up to date and charting the new developments in the field. This special Malor Books third edition includes a new Preface, three additional chapters, and a new conclusion summarizing Ekman's final views on the field that he has played such a large part in creating.

This book is comprised of 21 chapters and begins with an overview of questions about how the face provides information about emotion, with emphasis on evidence based on scientific research (largely in psychology). The reader is then introduced to conceptual ambiguities and methodological decisions related to research on the face-emotion connection (including sampling), along with some important research findings. In particular, emotion categories and dimensions that observers can judge on the basis of facial behavior are analyzed, and whether such judgments can be accurate. The similarities and differences in facial behavior across cultures are also considered, along with the relative contribution of facial behavior and contextual information to the judgment of emotion.
This monograph is intended primarily for students of psychology, anthropology, ethology, sociology, and biology, as well as those planning or already conducting research on the face.
Darwin claimed that we cannot understand human emotional expression without understanding the emotional expressions of animals, for, he argued, our emotional expressions are in large part determined by our evolution. Not only are there similarities between man and certain other animals in the appearance of some emotional expressions, but the principles which explain why a particular emotional expression occurs with a particular emotion apply across species.' -- From the Preface
