The Universal Guide



This is my largest, latest and most comprehensive book on hand analysis. Based on The Palmistry Workbook, Palmistry for Lovers, Medical Palmistry (co-authored with the late Eugene Scheimann, M.D.) and Palmistry: Your Career in Your Hands (co-authored with Andrew Fitzherbert), the text has been expanded and revised, and many new graphics have been added. The book is printed in large (8" x 10") format to make for easier reading of the drawings and hand prints.
