The hottest new field in emotional intelligence (EQ) involves reading and navigating the personalities we encounter both at work and in our private life. What are the characteristic emotions on display, and the motivations underlying them? Using a database of 173 celebrities from Hollywood, music, sports, media, politics, and the business world, this book reveals that people’s usual accuracy rate for detecting the emotions of others hovers in merely the 50% range. How to get it higher? By learning the secret sauce of how 23 facial muscle movements relate to seven core emotions. Along with illustrative photographs, Famous Faces Decoded is full of lively stories about stars you know, or think you know, drawn from the past 75 years of American culture. This unique book has been endorsed by everyone from EQ co-founder John D. Mayer, to basketball coach Tubby Smith, CNN commentator Jeanne Moos, and best-selling business authors Daniel Pink and Jon Gordon.
