If you're the least bit curious about human relationships, you'll want to learn PHOTOANALYSIS.
It is an exciting new technique, never before explained to the general public, to increase your understanding of people, especially those who are close to you now or were part of your life in the past.
It is a scientific method, yet you can teach it to yourself simply by following this complete step-by-step manual, compiled by the best possible authority—the psychoanalyst who refined PHOTOANALYSIS by working for nearly twenty years with photos of his own family, friends and people who came to him for help, allowing him to check and recheck his interpretations.
Every photographer will enjoy his own photos more after interpreting them through PHOTOANALYSIS. But you don't even have to take pictures to join the fun. All you need are some personal photos, old or new—snapshots of the type we all treasure and keep accumulating—plus the ability to enjoy sheer discovery, the thrill of going on a treasure hunt.
Here you're hunting psychological treasures, because photos—like dreams, body language and handwriting—contain clues invisible to the untrained eye: the true meaning of smiles, hands, groupings, poses, distances between people; why your little brother never looked at the camera; who was your grandmother's favorite grandchild
PHOTOANALYSIS will turn your family album into a fascinating new world —familiar, yet freshly revealed through your newly sophisticated eyes, enabling you to enjoy long-forgotten incidents; pinpoint dramatic changes in your life; correct distortions about yourself and others.
A special section on V.I.P.'s interprets the power structure within the Kennedy family; the "two faces" of President Nixon; the romance of President Roosevelt; the sexuality of Marilyn Monroe; and truths revealed in the media pictures of many other headline personalities; so that you'll not only be able to interpret the clues hidden in personal photos but in public photos, too.
