Synopses & Reviews
Sasha Fenton, author of Modern Palmistry
, proves that you can hold the truth in the palm of your hand. With her help, you can learn to recognize if the lifeline is wide-forked (happiness at home) or narrow, which signifies a long struggle. You'll check whether the first phalanges of the fingers are long (intelligence) or short (someone who thinks less but possibly achieves more). You'll even be able to tell if that new romance is a good catch without the person knowing that you're "reading" them! A good palmistry session is a fun way to get acquainted. It breaks the ice, and its uncanny accuracy never fails to impress. Special feature: a step-by-step breakdown of a palm reading in photographs.
"There's no other way to say it: this book is fun. Fenton, author of Modern Palmistry, takes a pastime that many love to dabble in-climbing narrow stairways to patronize candle-lit palm reader's shops-and makes it into a party-friendly do-it-yourself activity. From sneakily discerning whether someone is really datable by studying 'attachment lines'-which (beware) are faint if someone is 'still playing the field or looking around'-the love-oriented palmistry will surely fascinate. Be prepared to read one-handed, scrutinizing Fenton's detailed palm diagrams while glancing back and forth to your own hand, trying to understand how heart lines, fate lines, Venus mounds (yes, that has to do with sex), Apollo phalanges and other important nooks and crannies reveal something about the past, present and future. With colorful drawings throughout, Fenton offers an entertaining gift book for party planners (think bridal showers), bar-hopping date seekers and the mildly curious, while at the same time satisfying the serious novice interested in learning palmistry as a craft."
