which preposition

Je devine le passé d'une femme à la façon dont elle tient ses cigarettes,...

is translated above as:

I guess a woman's past from the way she holds her cigarettes

I would have translated the French to read "I guess a woman's past by the way she holds her cigarettes.

Bonjour Brian,

Thank you for your comment! Both (from the way / by the way) are equally correct. 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
