Cheiro predicted that he would soon be in a fight for his life, talking about the battle surrounding the Titanic sinking.
I ought not to confess this accuracy, still I am moved to do so. I have met and consulted scores. In almost ever respect I consider Cheiro the most highly gifted of all. He helps as well as astonishes.
What more can I say"- Madame Nellie Melba. Death[ edit ] After some years in London, and many world travels, Cheiro moved to America. He spent his final years in Hollywood, seeing as many as twenty clients a day and doing some screenwriting before his death there in following a heart attack.
His widow, the Countess Lena Hamon, said her year-old husband, who had been a friend and adviser to film actors late in life, and to European aristocracy and royalty in his early career, had predicted his own death to the hour the day before he died.
From Time Magazine of October 19, Died. You and Your Hand, as the title implies, is much more personal.
Benham sought to bring palmistry to popular attention by emphasizing logic and analysis, therefore, it is no surprise that his work displays an anti-Moon anti-intuition bias. In contrast, Cheiro, also eager to advance palmistry as a study that could be of great benefit to humankind, relied heavily upon his intuition; making his mark with fantastic predictions that later came true. It is no surprise to find You and Your Hand filled with descriptions of how to read accidents and death.
For instance, Cheiro says that breaks on the Head Line "generally indicate some fatality by which the person's head is injured," page 34 and that having breaks in both Life Lines almost always means shortened life page 5. Both these statements seem extreme and disempowering in today's world. There are several clear-cut inaccuracies in You and Your Hand, although no more than in most palmistry books. For instance, Cheiro, in talking about the Simian Crease, states that this combination of Head and Heart Lines occurs in about one hand per thousand the actual average is between three and five per hundred.
In addition, there are the usual differences in interpretation based upon the worldview of the eighteenth century compared to today. Cheiro describes flat Heart Lines as stable and reliable just like Benham does , whereas today's, less Victorian interpretation might focus on the challenge of appropriate display of feelings.
As in almost every palmistry book I have read, I did pick up a few pointers. I enjoyed Cheiro's discussion of the Girdle of Venus, particularly his assertion that, when inclined towards Jupiter, it indicates hero worship. Some the information was helpful. I guess i should read it again maybe second time around will be better. Since I read my books on a tablet, the ebook can't access the plates, so i don't know what they are exhibiting on the plates plate IV and et cetera. No appendix neither in hopes of accessing the plate.
There are no pictures, which I suspect are the plates.
One person found this helpful. The book was interesting and well written as I love palm reading. It went well until I found out that all the plates, diagrams and pictures were missing. A palmistry book without sample prints of palms are of no use. Reading about the lines and mounts on the palm for examples of which the plates were omitted left me wondering whether anybody checked or edited the book before publication. I would have rated this e-book 5 stars had all the plates and diagrams been correctly included.
My rating might have been higher if my Google Kindle app on my phone had been able to show the many 'plates' indicated by links in the text. This may be a poor review of the app rather than the book. Without being able to see the diagrams the text along did not provide enough useful information. This might be a good book, but the downloadable version for the Kindle was missing the illustrations that should be in the book.
I would not recommend this to anyone. I have always found palmistry interesting, so I gathered several sources. This is a good one, but it is not made for entertainment. More for education.
