Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written.

When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review, courtesy of the Midwest Book Review:

Handwriting Analysis: Discover Your Own Vocational/Career Potential

by David J. DeWitt

Publisher: Outskirts Press

ISBN: 9781478729396

Synopsis:

Handwriting Analysis: Discover Your Own Vocational/Career Potential offers a new perspective not found in conventional books on Graphology. David J. DeWitt links handwriting analysis with professional satisfaction and instructs the reader in the analysis of their own handwriting. It is not uncommon for individuals to labor a lifetime in an occupation that they truly dislike or to which they are, at best, indifferent. Or they might move from job to job multiple times, desperately seeking a ‘career’ that is edifying. Moreover, young people just entering a sparse job market might find that they have little idea of occupations that could be personally and professionally rewarding to them. Handwriting Analysis: Discover Your Own Vocational/Career Potential will help direct the reader to determine their own career potential in order that they may make the best career choice fit their personality.

Critique:

A professional graphologist and certified graphoanalyst, David J. DeWitt draws upon his many years of experience and expertise to write Handwriting Analysis: Discover Your Own Vocational/Career Potential. Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Handwriting Analysis: Discover Your Own Vocational/Career Potential is very highly recommended to students and practitioners of handwriting analysis, and is ideal for the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the subject.

Here’s what some other reviewers are saying:

Handwriting Analysis: Discover Your Own Vocational/Career Potential by David J. DeWitt GA is a great addition to anyone’s bookshelf. It is written in a textbook form. It has room at the bottom of pages for you to make notes or to do some of the activities he shares with you. It has examples, charts along with black and white drawings that are used to promote personality tests to match specific personality types to viable occupations. This is a real fun and instructive guide for high school and any one else who is looking for their area of career choice. This book will help you unlock your potential but it would be up to you to do everything else. Your handwriting may just surprise you as mine did me. I enjoyed it. I gave this book 5 stars but wish I could give it more. I highly recommend it to everyone. I look for more from David J. DeWitt GA..

This book provides an extremely clear and practical application to career selection based on what handwriting reveals about one’s thinking style and aptitudes.

As the author notes, handwriting analysis has graduated from parlor entertainment to a professional tool used in personality analysis, hiring evaluations, jury selection and others. This book offers the reader a method of using those same techniques as a personal tool.

I have had the pleasure of taking a similar course from Mr. DeWitt and can testify to his knowledge of Graphoanalysis, the clarity of his explanations and his ability to integrate the analysis with career choice evaluation. His book evidences all those same qualities.
