Explorer beat me to it. But "Quick and Effective Cold Readings” by Webster will give you the quick lines you need for a 2 minute reading as well as setting you up to learn a full reading in the future. It focus' on palm reading so you always have everything you need in your head. There are enough twists and variations to give one reading after another each with a unique charater.

For anyone getting into readings, I suggest getting a copy of OORT put out by Philemon Vanderbeck.
As it says on the cover, it's "a collection of twenty essays on the subject of cold reading covering methodologies, techniques, anecdotes, and philosophies..."
This is a great book full of ideas and presentational angles. I especially like the essay on Tooth Reading. You guys have to get this if there are any left.
Good luck!

Thank you for the kind words, Marduke. Smile

For those who might be interested in "The Collected OORT," I'm currently out of stock, but will have an expanded edition out sometime next year.

Meanwhile, the quarterly newsletter continues to be published on a erratic schedule. For more information, check out http://www.elementalent.com/oort.htm

Thank you!

While we are on the subject of recommendations, can anyone recommend cold reading audio tapes?

I have the Lee Earle tape which is fine but I would like something a little more meaty.

Wonder Readings has tapes but everyone seems to either love them or find them worthless. With so many diverse opinions on it, I'd rather not shell out $250 to find out which camp I fall in with (at least for now).

I am in my car a lot so tapes (or CDs) work great for me. Any suggestions?

(Just so that no one says anything else; I don't have the Earle tape, but I do have Websters and I'm pretty sure it's not meatier. It's a nice intro chatting around the classic Forer reading and that's all.)

Philemon,

I have "The Collected OORT" and it has inspired me to learn more on the subject.

I know it is more work for you but, could you do a "The Collected OORT 2" instead of expanding the current book?

Yes... I will be publishing "The Supplemental OORT" before the end of the year which will cover the material from the second year of the newsletter.

Great! Make sure you do a plug when it is ready.
