Publisher's Summary

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.
