  • Do you have an ISBN or author name for that book?
    • Regrettably, no. From what I could tell, this was something that someone put together at home and distributed by self-publishing. In fact, my friend only received a photocopied (several generations of photocopies, by the looks of it) copy by promising the person that he received it from that he wasn't going to let people outside of the industry know about it. Since my friend was in the industry and proved his "street cred" by doing cold readings in bars (he found he had a talent for it), he managed to hook up with others in the scene. I suppose I shouldn't know about the book, but I hardly feel bad about exposing con artists.

      I've begged him several times to let me photocopy any of stuff on this, but he won't let me :( Mind you, this is not some "friend of a friend of a distant cousin told me" type of scenario. I've personally held and read -- well, skimmed anyway -- this manuscript (and one other whose name I can't remember).
