Why do we have a face? What is the function of its features? How can we read its complex signals? Do those people with beautiful faces lead a more charmed life? In this fascinating study of the human face, Daniel McNeill, co-author of Fuzzy Logic, examines what we see - and how we interpret that image - when we look in the mirror, at a portrait or at the face of a friend or stranger. Drawing on art, history, literature, anatomy and a great deal more, The Face is a brilliant and enlightening exploration of the essential human mystery.
'A clever romp of a book... The Face is enormous fun... filled with the stuff of great cocktail party chatter. And isn't that why most of us read science books in the first place?'
'The face is a perennial fascination, and so is Daniel McNeill's book.'
