Palmistry has traditionally been blighted by superstition and hocus-pocus. It's been impossible to learn the art from a long list of signs, markings and squiggles to remember. Until now that is. Here's a simple, commonsense guide that works. You can start palm reading after a few hours of study with this book. Using the modern language of psychology, rational observation and common sense, you'll be amazed at how much you can see in your own or anyone's palm. Try it - it works!
REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS
This is a slim volume containing a wide range, and reasonable depth, of information for people new to the world of palmistry. Topics covered include skin texture, hand and finger shapes and print and palm patterns. For those with some basic knowledge of the subject, the presentation can be a little confusing, as he assigns new names to familiar hand parts. For example, the Mount of Venus is called the "primal home, body and family quadrant"; the fingers, from index to little, usually ascribed to Jupiter, Saturn, Apollo/Sun and Mercury, are here presented as the Mirror, Wall, Peacock and Antenna fingers. Would make a very useful supplementary book for those taking a course.

Mr. Fincham’s new book Palmistry Made Easy is exactly as it promises – a clear overview of the basic tenets of palmistry, which provides the reader with simplistic guidelines for using this age-old technique for understanding the connection between the hands and the persona of the person. Fincham brings forward some new information not found in earlier manuals on this subject, allowing for a deeper insight into the tapestry of the human design. ~ Jean Adrienne, Author of Power Tools: The Ultimate Owner’s Manual For Personal Empowerment
This is a small book, it is only 80 pages in length, but the author Mr. Johnny Fincham does seem to pack a lot of information into those 80 pages. In the introduction, Mr. Fincham mentions Charlotte Wolff who was a physician and psychoanalyst in 1936 and John Manning who wrote several articles in Psychology publications in the early 2000’s. And he also says that Palmistry is a vibrant and powerful tool used now in criminology, psychology and anthropology and genetics. On page 1 he writes,”The palm is proving to be an incredible mirror into the workings of the human mind.”
One of the first things Mr. Fincham says to do when doing a palm reading is to use water soluble ink to take prints of both hands of your client. You’ll need these to do the full reading that he is talking about doing. He then goes through the book breaking down all the different parts of the hand from different sections to the texture of the skin and the flexibility of the fingers. And one thing that I notice missing in the section on the flexibility on the digits on the hand is any type of warning when bending the digits to check for flexibility. The author instructs you to bend the thumb back toward the wrist, not to have the client do it.
There are 10 chapters in this book, each taking a look at a specific area of the hand. Chapter 7 is where he starts talking about the lines of the hand. And how they each have their own meanings and what part of a client’s or your mental approach to life they connect to. He also breaks the pattern of lines down into race and gender. In Chapter 8 he talks about the teacher’s square, and how that relates to careers. But later in Chapter 9, Mr. Fincham writes that stars and other shapes hold little to no meaning in a palm reading. He does mention in Chapter 9 a line he calls Spirit Line and writes:” It shows psychic perception and intuitive potential. It’s a very rare marking.” pg 60.
I feel that this is a base book, that you would need this and maybe an older book that talks about the “Mount of Mars” or the “Mount of Saturn” to do a full palm reading. This is a good book to have as part of a toolkit in studying Palmistry, but this is only part of a toolkit. ~ Dawn Borries, PaganPages.org
An amazing book, easy to read, simple to learn, the results are simply amazing. ~ Angela Dunn, Astrologer magazine
I wish the new book Palmistry Made Easy had been around when I was a kid.
I’ve just finished reading Palmistry Made Easyby Johny Fincham and I think that if I had had this to learn from I might have done better. It is, as the title suggests, aimed at beginners and is a very easy book to use for picking up the basics.
One of the tips it starts with is to take a print of people’s hands and then spend as long as you like studying the lines to discern their meaning, rather than trying to work it all out in a few minutes while the hand’s owner is pressing you for answers to their questions. The book also has lots of photographs of prints taken from real hands to demonstrate each point.
The chapters in Palmistry Made Easy are straightforward and cover each of the main things to consider when reading palms – the shape and size of people’s hands, skin texture, fingers, the patterns found on fingerprints and palm prints, the main lines on the hand and also the minor lines. None of the chapters are too long – and neither is the book too long. It is quick to read then to use as a reference when practising reading from prints of hands.
I also like the way in which the focus of palmistry seems to have moved on since I first had a go at it. Back then, it all seemed to be a bit fatalistic - prophesying things like when you would get married, how many children you might have and even how long you were likely to live. Now, it is more about understanding someone’s personality, strengths and weaknesses to help them become happier and healthier. ~ Lucya, www.badwitch.co.uk
