Tarot readings will never be the same again – Ron Martin
Cover Art: Thomas Wilmer Dewing – Fortune Teller (1904). Book is 8.5 x 11-inches and hardbound.
It is rare that the term “Game Changer” can be applied to any discipline… Something rare has happened – The Unholy Grail… The Unholy Grail will change the way serious readers, magicians and mentalists approach the art in the future. The many techniques used herein have never been applied as they now are in the Unholy Grail. There is no other book, anywhere, that resembles the Unholy Grail approach. The Grail is completely new and original in its practical applications.”
This volume has been a long time in the making. The reason for the lengthy incubation period, is that Larry wanted extensive field work to accompany this production. To say everything within its covers is ‘real world’ is an understatement!”
For those sincere and experienced readers willing to put forth the effort required, they will have developed a skill that will allow them to give readings that will solidly connect with their clients and suggest some new potential ways to work through many of the kinds of problematic situations that bring people to readers in the first place.
Larry Baukin Is one of the top readers today and has been for over 40 years. He is considered to be, by many pro readers, the best of the best.

This book has my highest recommendation! – Tony Razzano
“Q: What happens when you take one of the world’s foremost psychic reading experts, decades of his real world experience in the field, boil it down, strip away the fat and cut off any excess, focus and concentrate the true fruits through an actual utility tool and item, complete it with a self contained reading system and top it off with the total overhaul and a dynamic core transformation of the ways, methods, manners and fashions in which you have previously given your readings to the paying public and high end private clientele that we cater to?
A: Larry Baukin’s “The Unholy Grail” – that’s what! If you give readings of any kind (Tarot or otherwise) and you want to be as effective, helpful and therapeutic as possible, take my word and GO GET THIS NOW. You’ll be thrilled you did. I was!” – Jerome Finley, Psychic Medium & Spiritual Healer
In Larry’s Own Words:
From The Preface: “Human kind cannot bear very much reality.” — T.S. Eliot
For years – nay, decades – I have kept a vigilant eye out for what can only be called ‘the Holy Grail’ of Tarot card reading and cold reading alike. I sought a system that would allow me to instantly know the location of all 78 cards in the deck. A card system that would enable me to gain this knowledge without using any complicated mental gymnastics requiring mnemonic or mathematical calculations during the actual reading itself.
In addition, I wanted to be able to identify any Tarot card by casually glancing at the back of the card as it lay atop any face-down stack of cards. This would need to be accomplished surreptitiously while considering from three to twelve face-down piles of cards simultaneously.
The 78 card deck itself would also need various options for me to move about the system with ease, confidence, speed, not to mention, psychological effectiveness. Ultimately, the pack would offer a more powerful, successful and even intuitive reading for my clients. To top it all off, I wanted to be able to draw on this dream system anytime, anywhere sans the need of a Tarot pack at all. Imagine, I thought, consider the doorways and pathways still hidden within the world of cold reading that would avail themselves to me!
I dreamed of finding such a Holy Grail in magic shops, catalogs, sessions with mentalists, cold readers and so on. I filled those wells of knowledge with a lot of wishes. But in vain. That left me with two options. Either continue waiting for Godot. Or design the miracle myself.
So what you are about to learn is a cold reading system born purely out of necessity. As I explain the intricate workings of the following discovery, do not be daunted. Trust me when I assure you that my descriptions and explanations appear far more complex and difficult than they actually are in practice.
Most of you will already be familiar and experienced with the principles that I will be introducing. Simple card stacks, crimps, marking procedures, and a potentially endless array of useful applications.
The advanced nature of the system herein will require an investment of imagination on your part. I believe the instructions will be made easier and quicker to master if you assemble a practice deck. All requirements will be forthcoming.
This book contains two basic parts. The first and largest section will present the foundation or mechanics required to build a whole new approach to reading cards professionally. I recommend that you skim lightly through this area. Do not let yourself get bogged down in needless concern regarding memorization, etc. There will plenty of time to return to this initial section for study later on.
Finally, I will be sharing with you in a section of the book I call ‘True Places Never Are,’ an extensive collection of my most favorite and real world stock cold reading one-liners and short paragraphs. Each one will be presented verbatim, followed by a brief explanation as to when and why the statement is utilized.
It goes without saying that I have been using these statements for many years and this is the first time I have shared them anywhere. I am confident that you will employ them often. They are as close to hitting the mark nearly a 100% of the time as any reader could hope for.
The Unholy Grail is a tool that I use virtually every week in my cold reading practice. I read with this deck when performing short five to fifteen minute readings. I read with the deck when giving full-length half-hour and one hour private sessions as well. It is beyond flexible.
The Unholy Grail system has been my constant cold reading companion for a fair number of years now. It accounts for a substantial percentage of my income. I can promise you that the amount of time and effort that you invest in learning and applying The Unholy Grail deck will be more then worth it. Your readings will improve beyond your expectations.
I predict that once you read with the Grail, the possibilities created for you, will permanently change the way you do readings, or even conceive of the way readings can be done. By traveling the path of this work, you will expand the vocabulary of your cards, forever.
Johann Hofzinser said that ‘cards are the poetry of magic.’ Then surely cold reading is the poetry of mentalism. Welcome to my humble poem.
Disclosures: It is important to note that this book is for “serious” readers. If you are looking for the latest novelty that can be performed a few minutes after arrival – do not buy this book. If you are willing to take the investment of time and energy, you will have a system that will produce a cornucopia of benefit to you whether that be in the good will you provide or measured in financial means.
