About the Author

Andrea McNichol is one of the leading forensic graphologists and examiners of questioned documents in the United States, and a highly respected researcher in the field. McNichol studied graphology at the Sorbonne and at the University of Heidelberg. After receiving a bachelor's degree and teaching credential from the UC Berkeley, she undertook an eight-year study in conjunction with psychiatrists and other medical doctors, and criminologists, correlating graphological characteristics with mental and physical conditions, and forensic handwriting comparison. In 1975, McNichol designed the first college-level graphology course at an accredited U.S. university, UCLA. Since that time she has taught courses on graphology at eight campuses of the University of California. She has been consulted on such celebrated cases as the Hitler Diaries, the Billionaires Boys' Club murder, the Howard Hughes Will Case, the Josef Mengele Nazi War Criminal case, the OJ Simpson and JonBenet Ramsey murder cases. Andrea has been featured in such publications as the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Psychology Today, U.S. News and World Report, Time Magazine, and has appeared on numerous national television programs, including most of the major network news shows, Good Morning America, CNN, the Tonight Show and Geraldo Rivera. The author of HANDWRITING ANALYSIS: Putting It to Work for You, Hidden Messages in Your Children's Writing and Advanced Studies in Graphology, along with numerous technical articles, Andrea has been published in a wide variety of books, magazines, and other publications. In 1980, McNichol founded the Los Angeles-based firm Graphology Consultants International, specializing in examination of questioned documents and behavioral profiling for businesses and law enforcement agencies. Andrea regularly consults with several Fortune 500 companies and other corporations in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. She conducts training seminars throughout the world in the use of graphology, and forensic handwriting identification, and is one of the most sought-after speakers and teachers of the science in the United States today. McGraw-Hill authors represent the leading experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving the lives, careers, and interests of readers worldwide

Reviews

McNichol's commonsense explanations are salted with wry humor and ironic observations on the handwriting of the famous as well as the infamous. No one, including the reader, is safe from her barbs. This is an excellent introduction to graphology ... and an incentive to type all correspondence! Library Journal 19940103
