Chinese face reading is deeply rooted in Chinese culture and evidence of its importance and use has been recorded as far back as during China's Warring States Period (481-221 BC). The Chinese believe that an individual's characteristics and personality traits are all etched onto one's face. Not only can one gain insight into another's personality, one's past and future is written onto his or her face. Understanding and being able to read facial features and marks (such as moles and wrinkles) means that a person is able to prepare him or herself for what destiny might bring. Filled with illustrations and examples and written in an easy-to-understand manner, this updated book is an essential read for anyone who seeks to know how an ancient art is still relevant for contemporary times.
