Which books do you recommend to start out with, I am more interested in fortune telling & tarot work and things along those lines. Are his books hard to come by ?

Not sure about the Robert Nelson books, but I do know Richard Webster is a genius in this area... if you want to make a living with these skills then Mr. Webster is your man.

You can find details of all his works here:

Yes, I agree with you Socrates, Richard Webster is the man..and I have some of his books.

Just looking for some old school tarot work, I know that the gold can be found in some of the older books out there. Lots to chose from on e-bay and at Misdirections Magic Shop in SF.

Best,

This isn't old school, but it's VERY good.

You could start with The Art of Cold Reading (50pg) and Sequel to The Art of Cold Reading (25pg).

But honestly I feel that some the lines sound really antiquated.

All of your advise that I have taken has been spot on. Can you tell us more about it without tipping the method? I do have books that teach the meanings of the cards so I am ok in that area.

In the ad it states that you can know what is on their minds before the reading starts..that of itself would be very good to know.
In his book The Tarot Readers Notebook, Ron Martin uses three index cards and three envelopes to get to the sitters question. It's kind of bold and I've never tried it before, but, I am sure that Ron used it in his readings.

It would be advantageous for anyone interested in understanding how to give successful readings to get their hands on a copy of 'Tarotmania' by Jan Woudhuysen.

You can also read it for free at the authors website online:
