When this book was published in 1921, Elsie Lincoln Benedict's How to Analyze People on Sight was received as a serious scientific work of analytic sociology, but fast forward 90 years and the same words ring hilariously. Apparently well intended at the time, the book appears to invent the very notion of stereotyping. One can only imagine the number of hapless souls that must have trudged forward through life after reading Benedict's masterpiece, certain in their belief that their fate was inescapably governed by the shape of their face or the length of their neck.

    " Fascinating, insightful, and hilariously politically-incorrect. If nothing else, it provides a humorous look into the popular mindset of the nineteen-twenties. "

    " Just couldn't bring myself to continue after she claimed that acquired traits are passed on genetically to children. "

    " Utter garbage. I can't really mark this as 'read' because in no way did I finish it. It's terrible fluff, padded with needless "examples" of the (supposed) true types of people. Don't bother. "

    " This book was written in 1921. As a result, it is quirky and outdated. Still, it is interesting to read about different body types having different qualities to their personalities, especially when you realize you have come to yourself. "
