Terms used in this book

In this book I will use the term 'psychic reading' to refer to any or all of the services described above under 'What is a psychic reading?'. The only common factor is the claim, stated or implied, that a person can provide meaningful personal information other than that which can be accounted for by (i) the normal human senses, i.e. senses regarded as non-controversial by the scientific establishment (ii) rational thought (iii) guesswork and luck.

I will use the term 'client' to mean the person to whom the reading is given.

I will use the term 'psychic' to mean anyone providing such a reading and using cold reading to do so. This point cannot be emphasised too much. Let us imagine for a moment that there are genuine psychics, and people who pretend to be psychic but just use cold reading. This book is exclusively concerned with the activities of the second group.

Incidentally, this book ought to be welcomed by genuine psychics, if there are any. It will help people to discriminate between authentic psychics, generously bestowing their gifts upon the world, and shameless fakes.
