The definitive book of

Handwriting Analysis

March J. Sifer, Ph.D.


Marc Seifer’s book is one of the best written on the subject in the last 10 years!

Robert O’Block, Ph.D. founder,

American College of Forensic Examiner


For over 20 years I have made it my self-appointed task to scan the graphological landscape to document and report on significant researchers and events. Marc Seifer has consistently

hit my radar with his research and sharing of knowledge. His Definitive Book of Handwriting Analysis is a fine example of a work that is both a point of reference and a suitable book for teaching. He has fused modern thinking on the subject from many different nations. For the beginner this is a perfect starting point and even the most knowledgeable graphologist will find something new.”

- Nigel Bradley,

Graphology commentator based in Great Britain
