The Nelson Legacy
Secret Methods of Private Readers
"There are two types of "private readers" or office clairvoyants. The first and most common are referred to among members of the profession as 'shut-eyes'. Shut-eyes are sincere people who really think they possess genuine psychic power and are able to legitimately divine the future.
The above text is a quote the book. In Secret Methods Nelson draws a picture of what it was in the middle of the 20th Century. Today's facts may differ greatly from those facts(?)!
Today's reality is, of course, much different. However there are things to be learned from the text. Things such as palming and switching. The use of 'billets' and how to switch them while sitting at a table. As a Mentalist I would not even try to set up an "office" and do the things and use the ways Bob writes about. However there is much to be gleamed and a 'fun' read in Bob's writings. I have updated some of the wording and terms or titles given to people. We now live in a different age.
