Richard Unger is founder and director of the International Institute of Hand Analysis (IIHA) and one of the foremost authorities on hand analysis in the world today. His unique system of life purpose analysis is the culmination of nearly five decades of intensive research, including the reading of over 60,000 pairs of hands.

Richard has merged his own experience with an exhaustive study of the medical literature on fingerprints to create a specific and accurate assessment tool that has been useful to business, therapists, and individuals.

He began teaching hand analysis at SUNY Binghamton in 1969 and taught at the Esoteric Philosophy Center in Houston, Texas, from 1975 to 1983. He has taught internationally and has appeared on radio and television.

Richard is the author of LifePrints: Deciphering Your Life Purpose from Your Fingerprints.
