5.0 out of 5 stars An innovative book that should become a classic in palmistry, 10 Oct. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Palmistry 4 Today: The Fast and Accurate Way to Understand Yourself and the People Around You (Paperback)
This is an excellent guide to palmistry – the author has found a way to reveal all the mysteries of the hand without teaching us everything line-by-line, chapter and verse. I’ve read dozens of books on hand analysis but this book is truly original and helpful. There are authoritative sections on love, sexuality, career, success and health – and the author, Frank Clifford doesn’t judge or condemn; he writes in a positive, encouraging way. I loved the DIY sections, the party piece and the way he helps readers grasp the essentials of the hand. The sections on the Head and Heart lines (as well as the Simian line) are the best I’ve seen.

This review is from: Palmistry 4 Today: The Fast and Accurate Way to Understand Yourself and the People Around You (Paperback)
This is the first ever book I've read on palmistry, and it actually came recommended by my palmistry teacher and got glowing reviews on here, so I was optmistic about it before reading it.

Pros of this book
- It's well laid out, clearly written and easy to follow.
- It covers a LOT of subjects in a manner that isn't too overwhelming despite covering a lot of things.
- It contains a lot of great palm print examples to help visualize the signs.
- The book feels like it's well-researched, often quoting other prominent palmist's interpretations and thoughts on hand signs, and using personal research (ie personal experience in palm reading) to solidify the information.

. . .

Cons of this book:
- Although I did resonate with many interpretations, there were a few cases where the meaning didn't feel right for the palms I was analysing when practising palm reading on real life people.
- The book contained no colour photos of hands - it only contains hand ink prints. I felt that photos of hands would have been useful additional illustrations since more casual palmistry involves looking at the actual hand as well as looking at prints.
- Sometimes it felt like a hand sign was assigned a list of properties without having much logic behind it; just a list to memorise. eg stuff like this: "When finger spacing is examined, when the index finger is separate from the middle finger it can mean: self-determining, like to be in charge". This makes it really hard to internalise and remember. I'm going to palmistry classes at the moment and our teacher there ties much more logical connections between the signs which makes it easier to understand and remember things than the book does. eg for the same example I gave earlier, our class notes would be more like this: "When finger spacing is examined, when the index finger (the finger that relates to the self), is greatly separated from the middle finger (the finger which relates to society / parents / authority), it is a sign that the "self" wants freedom from the society. ie freedom of thought is important to them. They have their own opinions and want to express them." The latter is easier to remember than just remembering a list of qualities.

- - -

Bottom line:

Overall, this is a generally good beginner's book covering a lot of material. I learned a lot from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, engaging and superbly researched, 19 July 2010

This review is from: Palmistry 4 Today: The Fast and Accurate Way to Understand Yourself and the People Around You (Paperback)
Whether you're a palm reading novice or an established professional who works with the hand to discover personality traits and life events, this is the book for you. It is joyously littered throughout with startling factoids based on current scientific research, but is largely founded on the author's many years of scrupulously documented observation. This is an engaging book, and is highly recommended by even this casual reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Palmistry at it's best, 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great read it gives you the basic knowledge you need in order to understand all the different lines and mounts. By the end of the book I had a better understanding of my own palms and I was also able to give friends and family readings. Frank has a simple and straight forward way of teaching you all you need to know about the principles of Palmistry. Fantastic I would recommend it to everyone.
