Cold Reading

Cold Reading means that your reading uses no previously obtained information about the client. You rely on your powers of observation and the ability to make deductions. Taking note on how a person dresses, their carriage, the way they respond to certain categories of questions and their body language can tell an expert a lot about a person’s lifestyle, point of view and education.

This contrasts with Hot Reading, which exploits prior, often secretly obtained, information (there is also Warm Reading, which makes use of verbal feedback obtained from the client during the reading).

John Wellington Wells

Cartomancy for the Non-Cartomancer by John Wellington WellsCartomancy for the Non-Cartomancer is a collection of two treatises on the art of giving readings with cards. The best card trick John ever did was to tell a diner cook "everything going on around me". You can do the same. Not overnight, but quickly and easily. No cold reading, no spiel reading, no gimmicks or gaffs, just plain old fashioned fortune telling.

Philemon Vanderbeck

A Wicked Pack of Cards by Philemon Vanderbeck
"Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyant had a bad cold, nonetheless was known to be the wisest woman in Europe with a wicked pack of cards." - T.S. Eliot, "The Wasteland"
I've been working on an act designed specifically for comedy clubs based on the premise of "a wicked pack of cards." I have a 'volunteer' select a card, and I then proceed to give the worst possible interpretation of it.

The deck I'm using is "Morgan's Tarot," an unusual 86-card deck that bears little relationship with a normal Tarot deck. I found its simple black and white drawings and irreverent card titles to be apropos...

Bob Cassidy

The Book of the Golden Tortoise by Bob CassidyA complete divination routine based on a unique combination of Eastern and Western methods of geomancy.

Bob Cassidy

The Psychic Tarot by Bob CassidyIn Appendix One of The Real Work of Cold Reading Bob included a cursory overview of a numerological system that could also be applied to the tarot or to regular playing cards. In The Psychic Tarot he has expanded on that and provided a detailed system of interpretation that will be accepted by those who have a general familiarity with the cards. As suggested in The Real Work of Cold Reading, the interpretations of the individual cards are derived - with the exception of the Major Arcana - by combining the general meanings assigned to the cards' suits with the numerological meanings assigned to their values. This is not only simpler and more practical...

Bob Cassidy

The Real Work of Cold Reading by Bob CassidyBrad Henderson taught it to Dance. Kross put it Into the Deep Freeze and Herb Dewey made it Red Hot. In The Real Work of Cold Reading Cassidy makes it explosive and blows it into another dimension.

A good deal of what has been written about cold reading is theoretically and practically wrong and/or misinformed.
