The Invisible Smile

Living without facial expression

Jonathan Cole and Henrietta Spalding

  • Provides first hand accounts of living without facial expression, allowing a completely new way of looking at ourselves
  • Enables us to understand the crucial role of the face and facial expression in our social lives, identity and selfhood
  • Underpinned by medical and neuroscience expertise, resulting in a scientifically credible volume
  • The result of a 4 year collaboration between a clinician/neuroscientist and a teacher/lobbyist who lives with Moebius, providing an authenticity and immediacy often missing from such accounts
