In their international 'underground' bestseller "The Morning of the Magicians," authors Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, in writing about the so-called secrets of science, noted that the "secrets may not be fables, legends, or games," but precise keys to open up and reveal the strengths and weaknesses of man.
Much the same thing, of course, can be said about the secrets and techniques used by the pseudopsychic.
Technique usually doesn't follow science; it precedes it. But in recent years, while man and woman have shifted away from old-time values and have been motivated by needs and ideas that are changing with dramatic speed, the techniques of the psychic reader often remain rooted in the truisms of the 1920s and the 1930s, and even the infinitely more-ancient teachings of Gypsies.
In a world of jet flight, speed-of-light communication, and the breakdown and dissolution of former ethnic, moral, and geographic barriers, the secrets and techniques of the pseudo-psychic nave fallen behind the times.
Long before I first met the shadowy pseudo-psychic known, in the field, as the King of the Cold Readers, his reputation for innovative new concepts and techniques for psychic readings had preceded him, and was widely whispered and much respected.
After we had met and become friends, he pointed out:
"In the laid-back world of a few years ago, life was not constant, but it changed more slowly and quietly. Teachings handed down from one generation to the next often would remain current. Now, many of those past cliches are no longer valid. Some have changed radically, even over a period of a few years. Yet, the secrets and techniques of the psychic reader were never meant to be written in stone. Successful practitioners will remain successful only if they remain in step with mankind."
This book is predicated upon that concept.
