So, You Want to Be a Sensitivity Reader? by Patrice Williams Marks is a book that explains to you how you can make a living by being a sensitivity reader. Patrice Williams Marks gives you the definition of it and says what it isn’t as well, and lets you know if you are qualified for it. She talks about how to start the business and what you can charge for it. Then she shows you how to sign up for her class (a cost involved) if you want to learn even more about it.

So, You Want to Be a Sensitivity Reader? by Patrice Williams Marks gave me an 'a-ha' moment. I had never heard of this before, and I may have just found my calling, thanks to Patrice Williams Marks. I loved how she explained what it is, and gave examples. She even helps you figure out how you should start your business and how you should decide what to charge. I thought that was extremely useful. This book is a very quick read, especially since the last part is about her class. I would have loved to sign up for it. She does, however, give you a special coupon at the end, which could be helpful to readers contemplating this option. If you are looking for a career or a side job, then you might want to check this book out. Patrice Williams Marks does give you a lot to think about. I liked how she helps you in deciding what niche you should choose as well, so it would not seem overwhelming.
