A forty page book on how to give readings for money. 's what the author has to say in The INTRODUCTION :

I have been successfully doing cold reading for a number of years

in my home town and the surrounding districts. I have built up

quite a fine reputation and am kept very busy reading tarot for

ladies groups in their own homes, with many return visits being

requested. I also lecture at local Women's Institutes, which provides me with a vehicle to advertise my services.

It all started for me when I did a lecture demonstration on

'The Power of the Mind' at a local Women's Institute and I was

asked if I did readings. I immediately replied in the

affirmative, even though I'd never done a reading in my life,

unless one could call doing a question and answer routine as part of a club mental act, doing readings. The upshot of this

conversation was that I was invited to the home of one of the

ladies present, the following week.

The next day I hurried went out and bought my first Rider-Waite tarot pack and the accompanying booklet by A E Waite. I spent the best part of the next few days boning up on the meaning of the various cards.

I was quite confident about doing the reading on the night.

Being a working mentalist I'd got used to thinking on my feet.

I'd also spent the greater part of my working life as a detective

officer in a northern police force, before retiring on a pension,

so I was used to listening to what people said (and, more

importantly, to what they didn't say) and forming reasonably

accurate conclusions.

A little knowledge of body language was

also of great help to me, inasmuch it helped me decide when a

person was agreeing or disagreeing with whatever I was saying.

Sufficient to say that on the night I gave a very credible

performance which opened up a brand new world for me.

I decided that I would offer a regular tarot reading service

as a supplement to my regular mental act. Having made the

decision, I scoured all the book catalogues in an effort to find

material which would help me get the project off the ground.

Many of the books I read were of some value to me, but most were of little or no use as they nearly all presupposed that one was

conversant with the basics of cold reading. Now could I find a book which would introduce me to this particular art.

How does one make a start? What does one look for when first meeting a client? How can one structure a reading in such a way that it doesn't sound the same each and every time?

Finally, I didn't want to learn a 'spiel' or routine that

could be given to everyone regardless of which strata of society

they belonged to. Through trial and error I eventually worked

out a system which works for me. On the principle that what

works for one will work for another, I decided to commit my

system to print. So now you have a book which will teach you the

basics and help you on your way to Money Making Cold Reading.
