I have been anticipating the release of the English version of Quyen’s book. It is a fascinating read and will be used as a reference book for many years to come. Growing up I would hear bits and pieces from my mother and other adults and didn’t think much of it and attributed it to just being coincidental. Just one of those things that go in one ear and out the other. In the last 6 years, I have been more curious because many things Quyen has shared has taken place in the community and the lives of my family and friends. I always wondered how does he do it! By reading this book, it has helped me understand Quyen’s diagnoses/readings and the how’s and the why’s behind it. The illustrations and case studies are useful in helping to bring it all together and help you understand the whole picture/situation. There are many moments that led to chuckles and laughs because you will identify people in the news or in your work and personal life that fit the physiognomy features described to the tee. I will be reading parts of this book over and over again over the years to fully understand the meaning and teachings. Another thing that I really liked that Quyen did was he took in account functionality and modern issues and its application. If not, this ancient art will remain mysterious and foreign to many people. I am so thankful the author has shared his gift and simplified this ancient art/science for more to understand and appreciate.

I am so thrilled that the English version of this book has finally been released. After meeting the author several times I really wanted to read the Vietnamese version but much to my dismay, I was not as fluent in my parents’ native language as I had thought. Physiognomy: The Art of Reading People was a very captivating, yet easy to understand read. Although I have accepted that I will never be able to read people as the author can, this book has provided me guidance in my daily life. Many of the chapters in the book are very useful to my everyday life. Everything is covered, from the type of person that you should go in to business with to the type of house that will suit an individual! I will be reading this book several more times in order to try to fully understand all of the author’s teachings. However, from what I interpreted on the first read, the teachings are spot on in regards to personalities in those around me. One of my favorite parts of the book is that the author teaches you how to overcome certain things in your life. For instance, just because you have a grim fate at a specific period of time in your life, doesn’t mean you can’t change it (and he teaches you just how to do that!!). Who wouldn’t want to know the hardships coming up in the future and potentially prevent them from happening in the first place?
This book has become my sole bedside read and I can’t wait to see what knowledge I gain each time I re-read it. Thank you for dedicating your time and efforts to sharing this wonderful gift with the public.

This book was given to me as a gift from a dear friend. I could tell from a first reading of it that the author, Mr. Tran, poured his heart and soul into this book. Imparting his life’s knowledge of physiognomy into this carefully written book that provides in depth coverage of the subject matter to share with the general public. It contains so many priceless lessons, insightful and thorough analysis, and past stories of actual events and people whom Mr. Tran did readings for that would mesmerize any reader. Through his lessons, Mr. Tran gives me hope by showing me how to handle life’s difficult situations, how to deal with certain type of people, how to potentially prevent certain disasters from happening or at least alleviate them. This is my go-to reference book for life!! Nothing can compare to a physiognomy reading from the Mr. Tran, the master himself, but this book could provide the reader the next best thing.

Ever wonder why certain people “look” more successful than others? Ever wonder why that one couple “looks” more compatible compared to others? This book might help you answer those questions and many more.
At first glance, I was very skeptical about this book and its methods. But after hearing the author’s genuine tone and careful attention to detail – I was completely sold. The basis behind this book is that a person’s personality is directly reflected onto their physical appearance (which in extreme cases can be very apparent when comparing the before & after facial features of soldiers or drug addicts). The author goes into great detail to describe each physical feature and type of person it belongs to. Some of the concepts may seem abstract, but don’t let that deter you from continuing. I truly believe that there is something in this book that can add value to anyone’s life if applied correctly.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone with the slightest interest in learning how to read people or just someone who is looking for a nugget of guidance to a brighter future.

I highly recommend this book! It can change your life and perspective for the better! I am so glad for the English version. I grew up hearing about physiognomy but didn’t really understand it. This book is enlightening and brings clarity to some stories and situations I’ve come across over the years. I like that the author provides examples of modern day celebrities and politicians to paint a clearer picture for readers to make it more relatable and easier to understand. I love the message the book delivers–that we all have a hand in our own destiny. A quote from the author, Quyen Quang Tran: “The person with a good heart and leading a virtuous life will envelop himself or herself in a flourish countenance, creating a favorable condition for the form to develop, the color to brighten, the voice to strengthen, and other signs of good karma. By contrast, the person with a bad heart and leading a malicious life will damage his or her countenance, form, color, and voice, creating a condition conducive to bad karma.” Thank you, Quyen Quang Tran, for sharing your stories and invaluable insight.

This book is valuable to me. It takes the reader through the essentials of physiognomy and provides guidance in making important decisions in life. Obviously, the book can not make us half as skilled as the author himself, but it could nevertheless give us useful tips in life, such as choosing good friends or business associated, finding soul mates and avoiding evil people.

I have read the Vietnamese version of this book, and would like to recommend it to all my friends and relatives. I was so thrilled when I heard that the English version would come, as I really want my son, nieces and nephews to read this book as they cannot read the Vietnamese version. I was so excited when the English version was finally published. This is really a great gift to the world by the author, as he has put so much effort in imparting his great knowledge of this mysterious science. It is a very compelling read, and it’s hard to put it down once you start. It will be by my bed as I will need to read it again and again to remember the lessons in the book. I will buy this book again to give as a gift to my close friends and relatives.

So wonderful to have this book translated to English!! Very interesting information – plan to re-read the book several times to try and slowly learn more. Some items I don’t think translate well but the Author does a great job trying to explain as best as possible and I appreciate the diagrams to assist with the explanation. Very Fascinating!
