hallo everybody,
d.brown gave in a clip different persons a some page long cold-reading form with the same content. most people where impressed about the accuracy. so i am looking for a book (or better a ready 2 print file) without cold reading techniques but only (or mainly) with such forms. does anybody know where 2 get?

David Blaine has one in Mysterious Stranger


or, you could just compile all of the horoscopes from a newspaper together to make sense.

If you'd like, Derren's entire cold reading script from that show is in his Tricks of the Mind book. So that'd most likely be exactly what you are looking for. Also, there are books that teach cold reading which would give you a good general overview on the subject, and make you look more professional if you are planning on presenting Derren's script as cold reading. The Full Facts of Cold Reading is the one that most people end up buying as their starting in cold reading. It is highly recommended on the magic cafe forums. You could also look into the Forer effect, that's just a little one paragraph thing that most people rate highly as being true to them.

Tricks of the mind has a rather long reading in it. I think if you really want to learn cold reading you have to be observant and go with your gut.

somewhat of a generalized view of cold reading...
Cold Reading is much more than looking and going with your intuition. Although that is some of it, it is not all it is. He would surely have to read about it not just "be observant and go with [his] gut".

Get Quick and easy cold reading by Richard Webster then get Psychometry from A to Z by the same author :

http://www.deceptionary.com/webster.html#pendulum

A very good start,
then you might want to get your hands on Ian Rowland Full facts book on cold reading (even if some people will say it's a tad too advanced...)

Max.

Please note, the original poster was not looking for books to learn cold reading, simply to find resources for a generic horoscope.

would you please put a freaking 'e' in front of your words that start with the sound "ex"? It gets really annoying to read your posts when you talk about 'xposure' and 'xactly'. You obviously know how to speak the english language, now please spell it properly.

I'm not offended by your laziness. I just find it annoying. You surely have freedom of speech, but I was asking, not telling.
