It was very interesting and informative, some of the content felt repetitive but a great general understanding of the five people types .
I was pleased with this book, it has helped me look at humanity in a better way, increasing my curiosity to know more about it
Strange view of the reality
Wrong vision of the human being, sometime even a racist analysis, the author is completly detached from reality
Simple observations do help
I liked the basic facts to look for in common looks and behavior of a person to help understand how to better know how to work or socialize . Also some of the does and don’ts that can help others to know how they can embitter there own lives or deal with others.
All over the place
It is very difficult to follow. Each subsection highlights different points and there is very little cohesiveness. It is definitely something I'd read to pass time but would not recommend to anyone for whatever reason.
Concentrates on body types and makes lots of assumptions based on nothing but how fat or slim people are. Bad read
An Honest Guide to People.
By The Mr. French
This book identifies 5 different systems and behavior that people are partial to. It is an in-depth look at appearance, tendencies, and dispositions for people of the Alimentive, Thoracic, Muscular, Osseous, and Cerebra type. While probably not the only way of discerning people and understanding them, this narrative makes clear the actions and features of people to certain systems that I had come across in life. I would reccommend it. It was a good read.
Don’t take it literal. And remember it was written around 1921. Still interesting to read.
