A balanced evaluation of the ways that our hands shape our lives.

Synopsis

College-educated lefties earn more than their right-handed counterparts. The length of your ring finger relative to your index finger can predict sports ability. Abnormal palm lines indicate chromosomal abnormalities, such as Down syndrome. Such little-known, yet fascinating, information is the stuff of Connie Leas' book, a wide-ranging exploration of our hands, beginning with their evolution and including their roles in shaping us, both as a species and as individuals. In lively, easy-to-read prose, Leas explains how our hands and brains imprint each other in ways that ultimately find expression in our gestures, handedness, palms, prints, handwriting and more.
