Palmistry: The Universal Guide

Nathaniel Altman

Our hands offer revealing insights into who we are, where we’re going, and who we take with us on our life journey. What are a person’s strengths and weaknesses? How might he or she behave in a relationship? What type of career could bring someone the greatest amount of pleasure and fulfillment? Through hand analysis, we can not only learn more about ourselves and others, but we can also work through challenges and obstacles with optimism and purpose.

The culmination of over fifty years of research and experience this second edition of  Palmistry the Universal Guide covers all aspects of hand analysis in a comprehensive and easy-to-understand manner.

Author Nathaniel Altman begins with a brief introduction to the art and science of hand analysis and then focuses on the meaning of different hand and finger shapes, palm mounts, lines and skin ridge patterns. Next, he focuses on the psychological aspects of palm reading, such as character analysis, using a variety of lines and other features of the palm. He then moves on to romance, focusing on sexual personality, compatibility and how to achieve happy and long-lasting relationships. Palmistry can also be a helpful diagnostic aid. The book also covers careers and self-fulfillment, as well as how palmistry can help us find a spiritual path that is right for us. The book ends with advice about how to read hands and take handprints.

Both thoroughly fascinating and eminently practical, Palmistry: The Universal Guide makes an age-old practice relevant for us today.
