By and large this is an enjoyable, well produced/researched compilation, but two things touch on my own sensitivities. Microexpressions, are they really very accurate? Facial ticks, hellooo! We do make expressions to try to alter our emotions certainly; the person who lies could be hoping to make a grimace. You really have to have a history of watching the person. Along with that, is the claim for the appeal of white; Assessing health of a person by skin hue on a first encounter? Probably not the best selection process.. This is painting with too broad a brush, but just expresses the direction of the wind. A strong 6.
