Publisher's Note
The Art of Hand Reading uses color photographs of hands and handprints to teach you how to analyze all the significant lines, mounts, and markings on your hands. Find out how the different areas of your palm reveal the balance between your instinctive desires and your powers of intellect and reason. Discover how, by decoding your hand, you can build a perfect picture of your personality, your gifts and talents, your love, work, and true direction in life.

Industry reviews
YA Chirology, or the art of hand reading, seems to have appeared about the same time as the caveman. For centuries its reputation has oscillated between a venerated science and a banished hoax. Currently, it provides geneticists and psychologists with opportunities to study an individual's personality, health, physical characteristics, and background through the appearance of a person's hands. Reid's concisely written text contains the history, physiology, and the practical how-to of this practice. Intriguing tidbits of data strategically punctuate the presentation, adding interest, as well as educating and entertaining readers. Together, text and illustrations build a harmonious display of written word and visual effect. Most teens will enjoy finding personalities and potential in the palms of their hands and in those of their friends.
