YA Chirology, or the art of hand reading, seems to have appeared about the same time as the caveman. For centuries its reputation has oscillated between a venerated science and a banished hoax. Currently, it provides geneticists and psychologists with opportunities to study an individual's personality, health, physical characteristics, and background through the appearance of a person's hands. Reid's concisely written text contains the history, physiology, and the practical how-to of this practice. Intriguing tidbits of data strategically punctuate the presentation, adding interest, as well as educating and entertaining readers. Together, text and illustrations build a harmonious display of written word and visual effect. Most teens will enjoy finding personalities and potential in the palms of their hands and in those of their friends.
