Summary
"What makes a face attractive? Why are we attracted to certain faces and not others? In this fascinating and exuberant account from the frontiers of science, David Perrett, a winner of the prestigious Golden Brain award and one of the world's foremost experts in face perception, and Louise Barrett, an evolutionary psychologist, tell the amazing story of where the human face came from, and how our perceptions of the face affect the way we judge an individual's personality, health, trustworthiness, and suitability as a friend or lover. Revealing some truly eye-opening new findings that will change the way you see your own face and those of everyone around you, the authors explore provocative questions and sometimes unsettling facts: How much does facial symmetry really matter? Why do masculine-looking babies commonly grow up to behave like "masculine" adults? Why do so many people at age 50 really have the face they deserve? Why doesn't plastic surgery actually erase the years? What are the skin colors that are most attractive? (The answers are not what you might think.) How likely is it that you have friends that you consider ugly? Far from offering a license to be lookist, Barrett and Perrett offer proof that inner beauty is often what really matters in the mating game and in wider life. And studies prove it makes you better looking, too"--
