The book endeavors to show in a clear and simple manner the useful and practical truth that underlies the so-called occult study of reading character and disposition by the 'period of birth' and the meaning of each day and the influence of such things on human life. By a reading of the book, one can see how perfect the mechanism of the Universe is, by which certain characteristics, and even details as to health, may be traced by means of a study. The book is of practical use to the everyday man or woman who has not had the occult training necessary to understand complicated expositions on this subject.
About the Author:
Cheiro, greatest and most successful seer of modern times, retired from public life after forty years of continuous research work. For years he toured the cities of the world lecturing, teaching and encouraging.
For many years the true identity of Cheiro was carefully guarded secret. Only when he had reached the very peak of his profession did Cherio allow it to be known that he was Count Louis Hamon, a Norman nobleman whose ancestry could be traced back to the early days of the Norman French.
He was commanded to read the hands of many of the crowned heads of Europe, of presidents of republics and of leaders of commerce.
He predicted the date of Queen Victoria's death, the year and month when King Edward VII would pass away, the grim destiny that awaited the late Czar of Russia, the assassination of King Humbert of Italy, the attempt on the Shah's life in Paris, and in thousands of well-known persons' lives he foretold with equal accuracy the outstanding events of their careers.
