Sex, Lies, and Handwriting: A Top Expert Reveals the Secrets Hidden in Your Handwriting by Michelle DresboldHave you ever looked at someone and thought: He looks honest.
She seems friendly.
He doesnt look like a serial killer.
Are you always right?
Looks can be deceiving, but handwriting never lies. Handwriting profiling is an amazingly accurate tool for assessing how people think, feel, and act. In fact, handwriting profiling is so accurate that the FBI, the CIA, and the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad use it to build detailed psychological profiles of some of the worlds most dangerous individuals. And thousands of major corporations use handwriting profiling to help them make the right hiring decisions.
Handwriting expert Michelle Dresbold -- the only civilian to be invited to the United States Secret Services Advanced Document Examination training program -- draws on her extensive experience helping law enforcement agencies around the country on cases involving kidnapping, arson, forgery, murder, embezzlement, and stalking to take us inside the mysterious world of crossed ts and dotted is.
In Sex, Lies, and Handwriting, Dresbold explains how a single sentence can provide insight into a persons background, psychology, and behavior. Throughout the book, Dresbold explores the handwriting of sly politicians, convicted criminals, notorious killers, suspected cheats, and ordinary people whove written to Dresbolds The Handwriting Doctor column for help. She shows you how to identify the signs of a dirty rotten scoundrel and a lying, cheating, backstabbing lover. And she introduces you to some of the most dangerous traits in handwriting, including weapon-shaped letters, sharks teeth, club strokes, and felons claws. (When you see these traits in someonesscript, she says, its time to stop reading and start running!)
Dresbold also explains how criminals are tracked through handwritten clues and what spouses, friends, or employees might be hiding in their script.
Finally, Dresbold re-examines the handwriting evidence in several notorious unsolved cases. She uncovers fascinating clues that reveal the secret side of Lizzie Borden, acquitted of the ax murder of her parents in 1893s trial of the century. Dresbold also reveals astonishing details about the author of the JonBenEt Ramsey ransom note, and she presents startling new evidence that exposes the real Jack the Ripper (contrary to popular theories, he wasnt a prince or a painter after all).
Sex, Lies, and Handwriting will have you paying a bit more attention to your -- and everyone elses -- penmanship.

On days 1 - 3, students write letters and words from the week's Scripture verse.
A Reason for Handwriting provides a fun, meaningful approach to developing effective handwriting skills. Contextual lessons are built upon Scripture verses chosen for their proper letter combinations and inspirational content. The included "Border Sheets" provide a nice way to showcase newfound writing skills and serve as a fun coloring opportunity; at the end of each week, children copy their "Verse of the Week" on a perforated border sheet of their choosing, using their creativity to color and decorate their very best handwriting. This Level T for Transition book features instruction on the transition from manuscript to cursive handwriting through practice writing letters, groups of letters, and Scripture. Correct alignment, slant, size, shape and spacing are emphasized. Practice sheets provide room to trace letters before writing them individually. Scripture verses are taken from The Living Bible.

Writing Skills: The Paragraph
A Reason for Handwriting uses ball-and-stick printing and a traditional style cursive, with scripture as the writing subject. Scripture verses are modified to be understandable for children—more at younger levels than older. One of the most popular features is the set of decorated border sheets in the back of the books for children to color and write their Verse of the Week. These completed pages are attractive enough to hang in prominent places, use as family memory verses, or send to grandparents and relatives. Eight different books labeled K and A through F correspond to kindergarten through sixth grade. There is also a Transition book with a letter designation of T. The first book, level K , is an introduction to printing for kindergarten level.
