Overview

You’ve probably heard of heart, head, and life lines, but did you know you may also have a flower line, a destiny line, or intuition lines in the palm of your hand?

In this illustrated guidebook, bestselling author Richard Webster presents the essentials of palm reading with fun and easy-to-learn techniques. He offers “quick read” tips that give a beginning palmist the confidence and ability to do readings almost immediately.

Straightforward and friendly, this guide includes information not found in any other palmistry books, such as fingerprint analysis and the emerging art of skin ridge analysis, which reveals potential health issues and is taught in medical schools.

You can read palms—and use the knowledge gained to optimize strengths and navigate challenges in everyday matters of love and romance, career, health, communication style, creativity, flexibility, and more.

Meet the Author

Richard Webster was born and raised in New Zealand. He has been interested in the psychic world since he was nine years old. As a teenager, he became involved in hypnotism and later became a professional stage hypnotist. After school, he worked in the publishing business and purchased a bookstore. The concept of reincarnation played a significant role in his decision to become a past-life specialist. Richard has also taught psychic development classes, which are based on many of his books.

Richard's first book was published in 1972, fulfilling a childhood dream of becoming an author. Richard is now the author of over a hundred books, and is still writing today. His best-selling books include Spirit Guides & Angel Guardians and Creative Visualization for Beginners.

Richard has appeared on several radio and TV programs in the United States and abroad including guest spots on Hard Copy, WMAQ-TV (Chicago), KTLA-TV (Los Angeles), KSTW-TV (Seattle) and the Mike and Matty Show (ABC). He currently resides in New Zealand with his wife and three children. He regularly travels the world to give lectures, workshops and to continue his research.

    Lots of information, but it would help if there were pictures or diagrams of palms to make it easy to identify and understand. No such help is in this book.
