What does a yearbook photo have to do with future marital success? Can the CEO's appearance tell you anything about a company's quarterly earnings? In The Tell, psychologist Matthew Hertenstein reveals that our intuition is surprisingly good at using small clues to make big predictions, and shows how we can make better decisions by homing in on the right details. Drawing on rigorous research in psychology and brain science, Hertenstein explains how to hone our powers of observation to increase our predictive capacities. By training ourselves to read facial and bodily cues, we can accurately predict everything from divorce rates to sexual preferences, election results to the likelihood of corporate success. A charming testament to the power of the human mind, The Tell will, to paraphrase Sherlock Holmes, show us how to notice what we see.

"David Drummond explains in precise, measured tones HertensteinÕs view that our mind may be our biggest asset. The author elucidates how recognize our intuition when itÕs working for us and the reasons to rely on it to predict the future. Drummond is an appropriate choice for this nonfiction title because his steady pace makes the data, anecdotes, and explanations easier to understand. ThereÕs not a lot of room for flourishes or characterizations in this straightforward volume. But DrummondÕs deep baritone is soothing and may remind listeners of radio documentary style. Those who love learning the hows and whys of human behavior will be pleased with this audiobook. M.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
