How to read geometry charts

Lately I have been spending time looking at different manufacturers geometry charts. Much of it doesn't mean much to me because I don't know how to interpret the numbers.

I'm curious to know who here can look at a chart and say to his or herself how the bike will feel/handle. From what I understand there is a relationship between head tube angle/rake/trail. Any tips on how to interpret these charts?

Thanks
