The Black Book of Cold Reading

Picture this: Guy A walks up to a group of girls and smiles, says ‘hi’, and starts talking to them about mundane topics such as school, work etc. The conversation naturally gets stale and he walks away defeated as usual. Guy B walks up to a group of girls, takes one of them by the arms, and proceeds to read her mind in front of all the others. After talking about some other supernatural or paranormal topics for a bit he then tells them things about themselves that they hardly ever reveal to anyone – EVER. Every girl at the table is intrigued with this man and is hanging on his every word. This book is designed to help you become Guy B. There are some rules I’d like to set forth before you begin learning these effects and performing them that will keep your integrity and image intact: Rule #1: NEVER refer to what you are doing as a ‘trick’.

Rule #2: Women will invariably ask ‘how did you DO that?’ after you perform many of these effects. NEVER tell them no matter how much they beg or whine.

Practice as much as you can to become the best performer you can be – a PERFORMER knows his material well and makes it sound great. And when you execute these routines in front of women you are indeed a PERFORMER. Rule #4: Do not perform more than two or three effects for any given group of women, unless you become a pro and are paid to do this. Do a couple things to create intrigue and mystery, and then talk to them about the wonders of the mind, the unknown, your cousin’s birthday, or whatever else you have rehearsed and practiced. Rule #5: Don’t do mental effects with playing cards, ESP cards, or other props while at bars and clubs. Do you really want to be seen doing card tricks while out on the town? Every time I see this done I cringe. ‘Pick a card, any card’ – blah. Be ORIGINAL. Bear in mind while reading this book women think of magic in different ways than men do. When I

It can be used as an opener but I think it is put to better use a few minutes after meeting a woman and chatting with her. Whichever hand she is concentrating on will have a quicker pulse. You can perform this effect more than once with the same person but I prefer not to. Practice different ways of introducing them to see what suits you best. so select that one. Effect: You take her wrists and tell her to close her eyes and concentrate on one hand or the other.
