    A Handy Future

    As we all may or may not no, idiot guide books can be famous for taking complex information and simplifying it for us common folk. No exception to that rule with this book. You are greeted with a short but somewhat detailed history on palmistry as well as what it is and isn't. From there you move on to the hands as well as which hand is your active hand(the one you use the most) and which one is your destiny hand(the inactive one)For ambidextrous people(asking which one you use the most or using a pendulum is usually the most accurate way to tell which is which, also hand shapes and there meanings as well as the finger tips and their sections(top section intuition,middle section knowledge,and last section need for material world) and the lines on the palm of the hands,heart,head and life lines,known as the big three. In later chapters you go more in-depth into the palm itself looking at the various small markings such as the mark of the teacher(a diagonal line touching a perpendicular line between your pinky and ring finger) as well as the camera eye mark( a distinctive curve line between your heart and head lines. Your heart line is the top line, your head line is the line under that, and your life line is the line that curved around your thumb. What fraying, dots, and discoloration,branching, and forking lines mean on your hands,as well as clues to how your are doing health wise. Special markings such as the mystics cross(a taste for the occult) and whether you'll save someones life(Saint Andrews Cross)are all included as well. There are a number of vocabulary words scattered through out the chapters that are very helpful as well as advice on handling many situations that come u up in the real world when you need to convey a sensitive message to the person who's palm your reading. The downs sides to this book is the sheer amount of information can be very daunting for the beginning palm reading and perhaps even for the experienced palm reader. If you decide to take the more professional route with this book, then be advised you're going to need a few tools to help you out as you gain experience and proficiency as the book suggests. On a few of the pages, the Jupiter finger(your luck finger) and Saturn finger( your relationship to the law and authority) are mis-matched and switched around.There are sections and pieces of information in the book that are a bit vague. The Vague comes from the pictures they use for examples of what the mounts and lines would look like in the real world, it doesn't transition well from color to black and white pictures. At the back of the book there are worksheets in which you can use to practice your new found knowledge, but unless your going to be professional with it, its almost useless. I would highly recommend this book for the adventurous beginner. For the person with an unquenchable curiosity,and even the experienced palm reader wanting a refresher course.

    I've been reading palms for over 15 years and would not recommend this book for those just starting out.

    A good book for Palm Reading

    A good book for beginner's palm reading or just starting out. It explained the meanings of each line, the differences, and how the lines on the hand changes. I wish it had more information about unusual lines in the palm and what they mean. I would recommend it to anyone who would want to learn Palmistry.
