Your Hands: How They Shape and Reveal Your Nature explains how our hands and brains imprint each other in ways that ultimately find expression in our gestures, handedness, palms, prints, handwriting, and more. In so doing, it brings to light little-known yet fascinating results of scientific research, such as—
· Children who are allowed to gesture perform significantly better on tests to recall words than when keeping their hands still.
· 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 Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities.
· On the basketball court, the amount of touching among teammates correlates with success.
