Dear Martijin and Lynn,

Please share your experience and opinion about " The complete encyclopedia of practical palmistry" by Marcel Broekman, published by Granada Publishing Limited in 1981 in New Delhi - India.

I bought this above mentioned book today.

Hi Asif,

First of all I want to not that I am not really familiar with Broekman's work.

But I would like to report that Ed Campbell mentiones in 'The Encyclopedia of Palmistry' a quote from Broekman's book. But unfortunately, that quote indicates to me that one can not rely on Broekman's writings.


Let me explain this by presenting the passage from Ed's book where he mentions Broekman's work. Ed Campbell writes on page 73:

"... In addition to these groups, we have a curious observer, Marcel Broekman, who found 'a whorl in the print of the skin' 'under each finger'. He proposes that the apex of this whorl indicates whether the mount is centered or displaced. Strong qualities are found in mounts where the apex is centrally located. Later we discuss whorls, but they are, as commonly conceived, most likely to be found in fingerprints. Whorls are seldom seen under the fingers. Was Broekman finding whorls indicated by the incomplete pattern of skin ridges above the triradii? Perhaps he sees triradii as whorls. Because of the rarity of whorls as commonly understood under the fingers, his observation is obscure."

I understand what Ed describes here... and I am 100% sure that Broekman's claim that a whorl can be found 'under each finger'... an example of pure speculation by a non-expert.

I can not support the work of authors who describe things that not true.

PS. Broekman's was listed in the previous version of Amazon Palmistry books TOP 100, but his ranking dropped to position 102 - and there for it is for the time being no longer listed in the ranking of the first 100 books.

Broekman's was listed in the previous version of Amazon Palmistry books TOP 100, but his ranking dropped to position 102 - and there for it is for the time being no longer listed in the ranking of the first 100 books.

Presently, the author and book name is not present in any category of Amazon Sales.

Hi Asif,

The book is present + featured with a rank at amazon.com, see:
The Complete Encyclopedia of Practical Palmistry - Marcel Broekman

(Amazon Bestsellers Rank today: #2,878,204 in Books)


PS. But you will probably never find Broekman's book in the TOP 100 at Amazon.com, because that always based on the daily rankings... but these fluctuaty very much from day to dayI Therefore I don't use the 'daily ranks'.

I am using another website (titlez.com) where I monitor the 90 day average rankings of the Amazon rank - but that info is never available via Amazon.com, that is why my TOP 100 project is actually much more reliable than the daily rankings of Amazon!

I hope this now make sense?

Hi Jeanette,

Lynn is a few days away, so I present you the link to Google books where you can enjoy the full book online: The Science of Fingerprints [FBI]


PS. Not sure, is this the answer that you were looking for?

Oh...nooo! Amazon has recently changed the name of it's 'Amazon Sales Rank' measure into the new 'Amazon Bestsellers Rank'.

And it appears that they introduced this change early in february 2011... but unfortunately it appears that TitleZ.com is currently no longer able to deliver the data that I used to update the Palmistry TOP 100 books project.

Now I am not sure that I will be able to present again a likewise quality update... Hopeless

Hello Martijn,

Perhaps we have to do our own updates,too.
What do you think about `Das Handlese Handbuch`from Werner Koch, 2003, Windpferd?

cheers ... I found an alternative for TitleZ.com:

http://www.novelrank.com/user/martijnvanmensvoort?domain=com&sort=salesrank


PS. I have just added the books of the first 10 authors in last update of the Palmistry books TOP 100; notice: the 'salesrank' probably fluctuate from day to day... so I will have to wait for a while before I can start updating the TOP 100 again.

... Wow, this new tracking-system brings new opportunities:

We can now even see how many copies of the books have been solved since I have started tracking them!

And... this looks like a 'top of the pyramid takes it all' situation:

2 books have been sold during the past 6 hours:
- 2 for the current TOP 100 no.2. (Dennis Fairchild's book)
- 1 for the current TOP 100 no.3 (Richard Unger's book)


Also, nice to see that my account provides an overview of the 'current rankings' (based on today's statistics)... but my TOP 100 project will continue to provide the most reliable info: based on rankings during timespan.

In the comming days/weeks I will continue to add authors & titles to my novelrank.com account, and after all significant authors & titles are included... it will not take long to present a new update for the Amazon TOP 100 project on my website:
http://www.handresearch.com/book/palmistry-top-100-amazon-books.htm


(All books of the TOP 20 authors at my website are now included in the new tracking system!)

hand dance ... I love this new Novelrank-tracking system:

It even allows us to monitor how many books are sold via other Amazon domains like for example: amazon.co.uk - for example:

During the past day only 1 book of Johnny Fincham was sold via Amazon.com, see:
http://www.novelrank.com/user/martijnvanmensvoort?domain=com&sort=salesrank

However, via Amazon.co.uk up to 6 books of him were sold, see:
http://www.novelrank.com/user/martijnvanmensvoort?domain=co.uk&sort=salesrank


PS. I assume that everybody can see the rankings...?

Yes I can see them fine.
But I'm not sure what it is showing me. When it says for example, June sales 0
Is it counting only since you started the page a couple of days ago? ie I guess sales before 21st June are not recorded?

Hi Lynn, thanks for your feedback!

Yes, that's correct: the 'sales' reflect only the activity since I included the title in my account. Some of these book are only listed for a couple of hours, but it is interesting to see that even after a few hours it is quite obvious that most of the 'sales' relate to books which are high listed in the ranking at my website.

Have you tried to put your mouse on a title?
(A box will show up displaying even more details!)

... The preperations for the new TOP 100 run smoothly:

Over 100 titles are now being monitored (including all TOP 60 authors from the last update - others will be includded soon):
http://www.novelrank.com/user/martijnvanmensvoort?domain=com&sort=salesrank
http://www.novelrank.com/user/martijn?domain=com&sort=salesrank


thinking Interesting... after observing the rankings during the past day, it has become obvious for me how the Amazon 'Sales Rank' works:

Only the 'Average Rank' for each book provides reliable info (after being monitored for at least a few days) - because the (daily) 'Sales Rank' becomes highly INFLATED if a 'sale' is made for a book that is not very popular at all.

For example: 1 'sale' can make a book jump from position 1.000.000 to position 100.000 - but the 'Average Rank' will only slightly improve due to one 'sale' (after the 'Average Rank' has stabilized after being montiored for at least a few days, etc).

Hi Rajan,
I am thinking it is very difficult recommending books. What I like and what others do is a very different thing indeed. I think on the forum you eventually tune into people who you sense have similar minds. My opinion still is the Benham book is a very good book and recommend it, but there are always books which turn up and were unknown to me and are really, just not good, but to me great and an example is I recently got Andrew Fitzherbert's Hand Psychology and just love it. Anyway good luck and hope you find the books that will help you but remember you will get all the help and advice you need on this forum and don't hesitate to ask.

Hi Martijin and Lynn,

Today, I bought " Everybody's guide to Palmistry" by Sri Krishan Das published by a Sterling Paperback in 1988, India.

What is your opinion about that book have you ever read it.

... After almost 4 weeks, the 'dynamics' become obviously:

http://www.novelrank.com/user/martijnvanmensvoort?domain=com&sort=salesrank
http://www.novelrank.com/user/martijn?domain=com&sort=salesrank

Via the first link one can see that over half of the books (50 titles) with a lower average Amazon Salesrank have been sold, while the only four of the books (4 titles) with a higher average Amazon Salesrank have been sold (only 2 titles have been sold so far in the first 2 weeks of this month).

(I will soon add a few more books into these pages, and afterwards it won't take long before I can present a new ranking based on average Amazon Salesrank)
