Format: Paperback
This book unfortunately is an inferior reproduction of a genuinely valuable book by Cheiro. It appears to have been xeroxed then mass printed. The reproduction is so bad that the photographed palm prints given as crucial examples at the end of the book cannot be read because they came out black rendering the lines of the palm invisible. The information Cheiro has to give is truly important. He was THE premiere palmist of the late 19th and early 20th century and what he has to say is extremely important to anyone interested in palmistry. This book however, because of its poor reproduction, is worthless. Try to find a better reproduction or investigate auction sites for an original copy.

Format: Paperback
This is a very good book. You need to spend time on it to appreciate its value----accuracy!! Follow closely what the author says, attempt to read the lines on your palm and judge for yourself... At least in my case, they are amazing accurate.
One concern about this book are the 31 plates of Famous Hands at the end of the book. You can hardly see them clearly (too much dark parts with the lines), the last printed page is a picture of Cheiro's Indian Room (an absolute black-or-white "photograph", not a normal black-and-white photo in shades of grey). Fortunately, the author makes little reference to the 31 plates, the only mention is on page 147 (refers to Plate XXV) and page 150 (Plate XXIV). With a brief description of the appearance, for example, on page 147, "The excessively drooping of the line of head (Plate XXV) on a pointed or conic hand ...", is useful when the reader reads parts of page 147 and 150.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
Certain parts of the main texts are also not very clear (but still can make out the words)---looks like xeroxed copy of a xeroxed copy, for example pages 16 and 17. If you can get hold of this copy, look at these two pages and decided whether you still want to buy this book. Not all people will find the printing acceptable.

Format: Paperback
Yes, there are 296 pages including the blank ones. though the book brings valuable information about hand reading, the price is too high for a xeroxed copy. But if you don't mind that and you are seriously involved in learning hand reading it is OK.
I am happy anyway, the information here will let you know accurately the past, present and future, health state and much more.
Good Luck
