Quick and Effective Cold Reading
A complete text on how to give brief cold readings to anyone and astound them with your accuracy.
THE CLASSIC BOOK ON COLD READING.
When the first edition of Quick and Effective Cold Reading was published, Bascom Jones, editor of Magick, wrote that it was "one of the all-time GREAT publications in mentalism." If Bascom was here today, he would not be surprised to discover this book is now considered the classic book on the subject.
Cold reading is the art of giving a reading to someone without knowing anything about him or her beforehand. Quick and Effective Cold Reading teaches you how to give short, factual, informative and satisfying readings to people you know nothing about, and may not have met before. The ability to give a satisfying reading is a useful, arguably essential, skill for anyone involved in the psychic entertainment field.
For many years, copies of this book were hard to obtain, as distribution was deliberately restricted to people who were serious about learning how to become good cold readers. This new, updated edition is especially produced to commemorate this book's twenty-fifth anniversary
Please Note: This book centers largely around using palm reading.
Customer reviews for Quick and Effective Cold Reading
Yup, the book is mostly based off palm reading, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get this book, although its mainly palm reading (which is a good back tool just incase) it can help you with cold reading over all, the book has a few ideas (if your looking for those) in helping with your cold reading (of course on what to say) and it's perfect for beginners. (like me) It's nothing hard hitting, but it's a great place to start, it's powerful (if done right) and super easy to learn, this won't teach you everything on palm reading, but teaches enough to get a grasp on it. It's a cool book and I recommend this.

- 1. Tom answers: The methods seemed to easily explained, understood and performed but It's entirely about palm-reading which is a very specific facet of cold-reading so be aware of that. The write-up does not mention this important piece at all.
