The Know Yourself Series

Download PDF

This series of books explores personality and bio-types through the prism of the four elements – Air, Fire, Earth and Water – and four seasons – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter –, bringing the knowledge of firasa – physiognomy and bio-types – into a modern context. They very simply but profoundly equip you with the knowledge to understand the pattern of your own type and by that effort to understand why others act as they do.

Alex is presently writing Know Yourself Choleric which is due in 2o16.
