[a touch of wear to extremities, pocket on rear pastedown (see notes), generally a nice clean copy; jacket shows edgewear and light rubbing, minor paper loss at both ends of spine]. (pen and ink drawings) "This book explains simply the famous Balkin system of reading character at sight scientifically. It will show you exactly how to judge others accurately and tell at a glance whether they are dishonest, stubborn, generous, sensitive, thick-skinned, impatient, etc. and how to deal with them. Learn here how to make friends and how to know the people you meet every day; how to judge your own character, recognize your own natural talents and weaknesses and use them to advantage or correct them. Find your right vocation or your hobby -- the things you were meant to do best, and thus increase your income and your happiness." Ah, yes, your income -- and as we know, this system led to the creation of so many millionaires that Harry H. Balkin is a household name, even today. Uh-huh. (The pocket on the rear pastedown apparently once contained "The Famous Balkin Success Chart," blurbed on the front of the jacket. Alas, it's missing from this particular copy.) This seems to be a reprint of the author's 1938 book "How to Measure Your Powers and Increase Your Income" (used here as the subtitle); he had been writing various treatises on this topic since about 1919, which no doubt accounts for his system being "famous." Dust-jacketed copies seem to be uncommon -- no doubt because leaving the jacket on is a sure way to tip off anybody who sees you reading it to the fact that you might be analyzing THEIR character.
