    Classic Cold Reading Books

    Hey, haven’t been on here for a while. I’m currently reading The Dance by Brad Henderson. He keeps mentioning that the reader should read the classics on cold reading (I mean cold reading techniques, tarot, palm reading, etc.) but he never mentions what these must-reads are. Any help? Thanks!
