Care that even when you focus on the peop,e(like you said, patterns, tells, psychology, etc), you are still trying to get to their range. For example, "They tend to only raise preflop with premium hands, but now I can see they are on tilt, so maybe they are also raising with suitted connectors and any AXs". NLHE is basically a range war, and most of the people-focused strategies are aimed to get to the range. Of course, there are some opponent-focused strategy, like bluffing, that depend more on the person, but even those are highly dependent on their range as well (you can't expect them to fold a high flush into your bluff, for example).
As far as the original question, I wish I could answer but I also have some troubles with that. Everyone else above gave pretty good answers, and I can only learn from them reading ranges is crucial in poker, but it takes a lot of effort. Start by profilling the player in general (tight, loose, etc) and give him a bunch of hands based on that (ex, how many times does he play preflop? If he plays 25% or so, he's playing KQ, AJ+, JJ+, ATs or so. A poker software like Equilab lets you sellect the hands and see the % they show. Then as the hand progresses you analyze the betting patterns and start eliminating some hands (ex. If he doesn't raise, he probably doesn't have AA, AK, QQ, KK. If he doesn't bet/raise on a JK6 flop, he doesn't have JJ, etc. Of course this depends on his p,aying style too (he could have JJ and be slowplaying; you need to take into account if he's and opponent willing to do that).
It's a skill though, and it requires lots and lots of practise. Be sure to keep trying to read ranges even when you're not in the hand
@EvertonGirk: Care that I think you read the 60/10 wrong. In theory books 60/10 is used as the most basic stats: VPIP and AF, assuming VPIP also includes 3bet preflop and calling then folding to a raise. In most theory books they used these to profile their opponents, because it shows how many hands they tend to play and how aggresive they are with them, which allows you to say they are a fish, TAG, LAG, etc
