The Illustrated Textbook of Psychodiagnostic Chirology in Analysis and Therapy
by Arnold Holtzman, Ph.D.

2nd edition This new edition brings together in one extended volume the complete original edition with the critically important and recently published addendum. This addendum introduces 25 entirely new and clearly identified markers in the hand identifying neurotic and pathological developments in personality.

Psychodiagnostic Chirology (PDC) is a singularly unique, state-of-the-art, discipline in psychological diagnosis introduced in a language most layman would understand. Laboratory tested with published documentation it delivers an accuracy and reliability that surpass any battery of tests presently available to the professional clinician. More than giving the measure to traits, capabilities, intellectual potential and sexual (libidinal) expressions among other constructions in personality, it focuses powerfully on how personality is given shape, and how behaviors assume their patterns.
The original work introduces syndromes that are wholly unknown in professional literature. Yet the most distinguished academicians and clinical psychologists today have endorsed this new material - indeed the discipline in its entirety - with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in this field of study.

The PDC textbook is now a 500 page laminated softcover edition printed on high gloss chrome paper.

"The Wrestler from Montreal"

A huge, powerfully moving, and very Jewish saga. Its world is a pulsing, turn of the last century theatre beginning in Eastern Europe and shifting to the steamy St. Urbain Street ghetto in Montreal. Its stage is the labyrinth of an ancient destiny with its players driven by every deadly sin. “An engaging read…” wrote Chuck Shelton from KIRKUS REVIEWS.

Available as a Kindle e-book at Amazon.
