Below is a partial
listing of books and manuscripts written and/or published by Bob
Nelson. The dates of publication are approximate, and based on their
appearance in the Nelson catalogs I have access to.
Many people in
the trade have read at least one Nelson book (usually "Art
of Cold Reading") and been put off by the dated nature of Bob's
writing. Considering that little was written about the profession
prior to the 1920s, you still have to give him credit for writing
a small library on the subject over the course of 35 years.
And for those
who are willing to look past the occasional stale bits of history,
there is still some sound philosophy to learn from.
of the titles can still be found at the Hades Publications website:
