It'll be the same price! I'm only going to let AEIOU run as an ebook til the new year I reckon...

I think lulu.com are still running a free shipping offer (til the 30th I think?) - so you'll get a printed copy in 7-9 days (from my own experience)...

thanks for the support though, I do appreciate it...

I've only just finished reading this, having got it VERY cheaply from Mr Dunford.
Despite this, I'll offer a fair opinion on the work:

If you are regularly doing readings, or wish to start with a simple system to earn your stripes, then this is a great addition to some of the other systems out there.
A mixture of habit, boredom and occasional mental-arthritis sometimes mean it's hard to give a reading to someone, particularly if you have read for them before using systems like "A-Z".
Numerology has always left me a little cold, as linking the numbers to meanings is either a) memorising a lot of stuff, or b) giving basic 'headline' type readings. "Thought Paths" gives a system which is easy to link and also 'loose' enough to jazz with. It's a fine example of intuitive thinking, and allows for expansion of material for people who have received (endured?!) readings from you before!
(BTW my favourite bits of intuitive thinking are Tom's "Tarantella" which was genius, if limited to a specific environment, and Enriquez' feather reading which he demonstrated at TM a few years back...but I digress).

Personally I find I have to work hard to stop giving almost 'stock' readings because of my tendency to think along certain lines and certain word-preferences; "Thought Paths" has given a whole new avenue of spiel, painlessly acquired and logically linked in my brain.
Seems like a good thing to me!

This just arrived! A lovely looking little thing and after a fairly brief glance through whilst drinking my morning coffee I have to say - wonderful, just wonderful Smile

This should be added to every readers book shelf without reservation. Like certain board games - 'a minute to learn, a lifetime to master', this is something you will use. I am utterly smitten! Smile

One thing IAIN, should I be calling the Donkey protection league?! Smile

Cheers krakhead...

I'm glad you like the look and feel of the book - though I wouldnt class it as vital, I do like a handsome looking book(let)...so I do try to make it look appealing as well as mentioning donkeys and hoping the content is useful...

and being visually driven is what helped creat AEIOU and Thought-Paths...

I'd love to know how you get on with using it, and what applications you use it for...

very happy reviews are leaking through now...so thank you...

Now the electro-bibliophiles have no excuse. Buy it. Be a better reader.

Hi All,

I purchased this today via Bev's Cold Reading Company website and even though I have not yet finished reading it fully I can see how much scope there is within this to really expand on what Iain has shared within these pages.
My initial thought was to extend this to any letter of the alphabet in the same way Iain has taught the reader to use the technique with numbers. This gives the reader a huge amount of bases to start a complex reading.

As others have said and I can only whole heartedly agree with is both this and AEIOU are brilliant but simple concepts.

I will add an additional review when I complete my first read through.

Warmest Regards
Dr Rob.

I have a question for the owners of Thought-paths:

It is possible to adapt the attributes from the numbers in other language like French, Italian and Spanish?

Thanks!

Wouldsay yes, The concept is multi lingual and could be easily used where English is not the first language.

Regards

I think you'd find just the thing on Enriquez's Tarology blog.

Thanks Iain and DrRob for your feedback.

I have AEIOU & Similar cold reading books and already did my extra work on it for other languages.

Yeah, you can read the sound of the name if you want a bit more to play with...some names have hidden vowels when spoken...like mine...in fact, I'm completely different if you speak mine and spell it...E-AN, vs IAIN...so you can play with things like that...notice the commonalities as well as the similarities...
