Reviews

"In this comprehensive guide to hand reading, based on Ellen Goldberg's 40 years of teaching palmistry and the Western Mystery tradition, the authors make the powerful insights of the hand accessible in an inviting and user-friendly manner. The book presents the character traits and personality archetypes associated with each of the seven mounts of the palm and shows how to determine which are most influential in the nature of the individual" * The Edge, March 2016 *
"Anyone interested in palmistry will be hard-pressed to find a book more thorough than this one. Classical planetary correspondences are melded with crisply defined pictures of hands, hands and more hands. From broad general interpretations to the most minute details, mounds, lines, spacing, phalanges and much more are illustrated clearly, with Goldberg and Bergen helping the reader combine all the myriad parts into a clear and cohesive reading. Well-written and well-designed, this book is a simply beautiful bible of palmistry. Highly recommended." * The Witches' Almanac, March 2016 *
