The big news is not about Claudia Rose this time. It’s about the other side of my other career. I’ve just published three–count ’em, three new books about handwriting.
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Handwriting Analysis (2nd Edition), is out of print after 18 years as an international bestseller. Readers around the world say it helped them understand handwriting better. Graphology teachers use it to teach classes, too. So, I spent over 100 hours rewriting it. I added new samples of celebrity handwriting and gave it a new name: Reading Between the Lines: Decoding Handwriting. So far, handwriting analysts like even better than the first book.
That inspired me to combine seven of my monographs into a second book: Advanced Studies in Handwriting Psychology. This book is a deeper dive into personality through handwriting. Complex topics include childhood sexual abuse in adult handwriting, addictive personality, defense mechanisms, serial killers, and more.
The third book is Personality & Anxiety Disorders: How they may be reflected in handwriting and other important topics. It’s based on a series of online classes.
The book is about personality and anxiety disorders described in the DSM-IV. If you are a psychologist, you’ll know that’s the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual. Since then, the DSM-V came out, but its unpopularity led me to leave it as-is.
New formats, too
All three books are available in paperback and e-books, which makes it easy to look things up.
