Details: This book presents the classifications, principles and examples of important psychological techniques every magician should know about. The author has identified four fundamental Principals (Objective Illusions, Subjective Illusions, Influence by Suggestion, and Intellectual), with fifteen Specific Principles as sub topics within the major classes.

In addition to the basic principles and their historical use, there are extensive examples of memorization aids and Key Word charts. Tips on transmitting numbers and words to a confederate are also detailed.

Appendices deal with Music and Magic and the Causes of Laughter. This volume is a must for the serious magician who wants to know why his audience reacts and how to channel that reaction to be a positive experience for all.
