Yaakov Rosenthal is not just an expert in his field of graphology (handwriting analysis) but more importantly he has a strong desire to make a difference through what has become his passion, teenagers. It is evident that what he wants to convey is the importance of learning how to communicate with teens. Using graphology is a powerful and transformative way to open up communication channels. His book, Unlock: The Secret Word of Teenagers reflects Yaakov’s desire to educate people on this important factor. At the same time he gives us a glimpse into the world of teenagers through the world of graphology. Yaakov approach is very different. Rather than making handwriting analysis a pure perfunctory science of a person’s handwriting means, he explores the deeper psychological messages. By using his knowledge based intuitive prowess sharpened by his years of experience, love of teenagers and graphology, he is able to gain the trust of teenager quickly. This is no easy feat for anyone who has or had a teenager knows. They become closed circuits between the age of 13 and 22. The handwriting analysis that Yaakov employs empowers his young clients to explore their inner world with all its strengths and challenges. This allows them to reveal their inner selves and true power in a safe, gentle and effective environment. Locked away inside teens are their fears of so many confusing things. Their new awareness’s are expanding from childhood through adolescent to adulthood. It is within this period of time we expect so much and provide so little support.
I truly respect what Yaakov Rosenthal is doing and encourage anyone to purchase his book. It is not exclusive about teenagers. The topic may focus on them but in the book he provides examples of handwriting and various meanings that can be elicited from it. The “I” for instance is universal for revealing the relationship we all have with our mother and father and ourselves. This is a fact I was not aware of but in the book he gives multiple examples. There is no right or wrong, only what is and that reveals a great deal about a person and what is locked deep inside.
Each chapter gives a description of the style of writing which is being reflected like “Rollercoaster and Blob”. The ink blob on the page and the occasional doodle does have meaning and Yaakov makes sense of such enigmatic human peculiarities that we all have when we write. Even in the age of computers, texting, I phones and I Pads where we less and less take time to actually write it does not take us off the path of what is lined within our writing.
Yaakov believes that there is no such thing as “raging hormones” in teenagers but rather it is their brains that are starting to grow and it through this growth that amazing and scary processes occur. Our culture misunderstands so much of what should be a natural transition into adulthood. Yaakov has provided an elegant solution for our teenagers to bridge the gap and make the journey a bit less bumpy. Hand Writing Anaylsis with Yaakov Rosenthal is one amazing way to tune into your teen!
I encourage you to get the book, “Unlock; The Secret World of Teenagers it is for everyone but especially for parents, educators and teens themselves to learn a new way of viewing the inner world. He reminds us there are 6 indicators in a teen’s handwriting which reveals their essence, their strengths, their challenges and their outlook on life. The insights in discovering personality alone is worth the time and effort to engage ourselves to a new discovery!

Subject: Yaakov Rosenthal: Unlocks Secrets with his new book!
UNLOCK THE SECRET WORLD OF TEENAGERS By Yaakov Rosenthal
Unlock: The Secret World of Teenagers speaks well for using graphology to shed quick insight on the
special problems of teenagers. The book is clear and simple, focusing on gestalt areas of handwriting
– margins, baseline, PPIs (the letter 'I'), zones, size, pressure, connections - to gain important clues to the
teenager’s personality and behavior, opening the door to understanding and communication.
Using the bell curve, Rosenthal gives a whole new meaning to “accepting the things we cannot change.”
Understanding this concept alone could allow a troubled teen to see his mistakes and accompanying discomfort
in the world as simple, normal annoyances. Without any wasted words (about 100 pages), Rosenthal (who
studied with Felix Klein) shares meaningful personal anecdotes, exemplifying his many years of experience and
success in counseling teens since 2004. His heart-warming stories model the focused use of handwriting
analysis to understand and change the lives of troubled teens at four different high schools where he is
Unlock the Secret World of Teenagers is beautifully simple in its presentation and instills confidence in graphology
as a tool for parents, counselors, educators, coaches, graphologists ---- and teens!

No two teens are the same. They are all very difficult to get through to and trust me I am a teen. "Unlock The Secret World of Teenagers" will undoubtfully enable you to discover ways to better understand your child and even yourself. Mr. Rosenthal is spot on and gave me a new prospective on handwriting and myself. There is a story behind every word.

I believe with full faith that the advice and guidance that Mr. Rosenthal gave me changed my life for the good.
I will ever forever be amazed how he can help people just by analyzing their handwriting!
Do you really believe that’s a science?

This was the reaction of one of the judges as he viewed my exhibit at the
science fair. I was in the eleventh grade. I was surprised at the comment, even
a bit insulted. But it had an effect; it made me more interested than ever
before in the science—yes, science—of graphology.
It is a fascinating area of study. But, like in medicine, it’s not only about the
science; it’s about the practitioner, as well. And my school, Bnos Chomesh
Academy, has been blessed with a marvelous practitioner of graphology.
When Yaakov Rosenthal first started working with my students, I was
excited because I felt that his sessions would add a dimension of fun to our
curriculum. The students would think it was cool that he could see some of
their traits in their handwriting. What I did not anticipate was the incisive
manner in which Mr. Rosenthal would see into our students’ souls and help
them to grow in ways I could never have expected.
When we encounter a student who presents as a brick wall, it is difficult
for us to figure out what is going on and what approach to take with her.
With all the patience our teachers can muster, we sometimes find ourselves
stumped for a strategy. Enter Yaakov Rosenthal’s special brand of therapy,
and a girl whom it might take us six months to get through to is talking after
45 minutes. When I look at a student and talk to her about her behavior, she
goes on the defensive. When Mr. Rosenthal looks at her handwriting and
says to her, “You are telling me here that you don’t trust people,” it just breaks
down barriers. She can’t argue with the assertion because she herself told it
to him, indisputably, right there on paper. The work on personal growth can
start immediately because he has cut through all the layers of denial.
I should mention that it is not just Mr. Rosenthal’s skill that makes his
magic work. Mr. Rosenthal brings to his work not only years of experience
but also his characteristic warmth and caring. The combination is stunning.
The young people he works with are given more than insight into their
behavior; they are also given gentle guidance towards a more positive way of
leading their lives. They feel that he is a safe person to talk to and know that
they will get the encouragement they need if they share information that
makes them feel vulnerable. They will never be judged.
Many times throughout the year, students have stopped me to ask, “When
is Mr. Handwriting Guy coming?” or “Can you get Mr. Rosenthal this week?”
When they ask that, I realize that they are either stuck at some difficult
juncture and need him to help them work their way through it, or they have
made some important strides and want to share their accomplishments with
him. Either way, it is an incredible blessing for us to have him as part of our
educational support team here at Bnos Chomesh.
I am thrilled that Yaakov Rosenthal has decided to share his gift with
the world in the form of this book. It is my fervent hope that with Mr.
Rosenthal’s guidance, parents, educators, and youth directors of all kinds
will be able to improve their understanding of the children and teens in their
care. With greater understanding, we can usher the adults of tomorrow into
adulthood with more self-awareness, more confidence, and greater ability to
be productive members of our society.
