KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a fuller explanation, in words and in pictures, of the soi-disant sciences which have won ""continued interest"" or ""sprung to public acceptance."" Included here are astrology, cartomancy, colorology, divination by dice or dominoes, dream interpretation (Artemidorus, 150 A.D. not Freud, is the swami), graphology, numerology, the study of moles, palms, phrenology, and assorted pastimes from teacup reading to table tipping. ""Any dream of books is significant of cultural interest that should be pursued for intellectual advancement."" When we dreamed about this one, we found that it was escalating toward a number of readers whose upward cultural mobility was not quite that distinct. And they were reading it avidly.
