Handwriting Analysis (previously published as Reading Between the Lines) by P. Scott Hollander is the most complete book available on the subject of graphology. The book clearly explains how to interpret the meanings of the slant of the letters and the baseline, whether letters are smooth or jagged, and how the letter "t" is crossed.
For example, if the letters have a slight slant to the right, it indicates a person who gets along well with others. A little more means that the writer has a greater need for the company of others. A further tilt to the right means the writer is less rational and more excitable. And, if the tilt if very extreme, it means that the person is dependent on others for ego-support. The book goes into more detail and gives examples so you can easily learn to detect the angle of writing.
Other topics include the size of the letters, the pressure of the pen and the high, middle, and low zones of the script. You'll learn the importance of capital letters (which indicate confidence) and the special identity words (which reveal the self-image). Then you will learn exactly how to do a complete session of interpretation, step-by-step through an entire analysis.
The book also shows you how to analyze the handwriting of children and how their words differ from those of adults. You'll see how handwriting can indicate health problems, with examples including everything from pain to drug addiction. The book explains how you can actually overcome a problem by changing your handwriting.
If you want to learn graphology, get this book.

Handwriting analysis has always been an interest of mine. I liked the fact that in the back of the book there is a glossary for terms that graphologists use. Graphology isn't necessarily made easy with this book, but nothing worth learning is. There are many illustrations, and in every chapter there is a little quiz to put what you learned to the test. The only down side to these quizes is the fact that the answers are not very detailed. I don't expect anyone to make any money by being a graphologist by merely reading this book, because I have tried to analyze other people's handwriting, and I could only give vague generalizations. I would have had to look up the information again, and I didn't bring the book with me on that day. Another problem with analyzing other people's handwriting is the fact that they want to prove you wrong. I however found that what the book says about other people's personalities or his or her state of mind at the time of writing, is very...
Very easy to understand and follow. It gives great tips on how to apply each concept to the piece of writing that you are trying to analyze. It also gives examples of what you are looking for, and what they mean.
I liked how it explained from the very first steps how to analyze an handwriting sample. Very easy to read & understand also.
