Second Edition



This is an enlarged and updated second edition of acclaimed palmist Nathaniel Altman's largest, latest and most comprehensive book on hand analysis, first published by Sterling Publishing in 2009 and long out of print. Based on his previous palmistry titles including The Palmistry Workbook, Palmistry for Lovers, Medical Palmistry (co-authored with the late Eugene Scheimann, M.D.) and Palmistry: Your Career in Your Hands (co-authored with Andrew Fitzherbert), the text has been expanded and revised, and new graphics have been added. The format for this second edition has also been redesigned for better understanding. Unlike the original edition, the book is printed in a larger 8-1/2" x 11" (21.5 X 27.5 cm) format in order to make for easier reading of the drawings and hand prints. The typeface for this edition (12-point Georgia) is larger than in the Sterling edition as well.
