Theater of the Mind by Barrie Richardson

(c. 1999) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Details: 1999 recipient of the Psychic Entertainers Association award for creativity, and with over fifty years of professional performance behind him, Barrie Richardson has gathered together 53 of his best mental routines, many with complete presentations, for this large volume of baffling experiences.

In THEATER OF THE MIND, you will find page after page, of fresh, practical material, tested and perfected before thousands of audiences; astonishing feats that use only ordinary items, and few of them, entertaining mental experiments that involve the whole audience, that pack small and play big, and that exploit a devilish combination of simplicity and cleverness. What you will discover in Theatre Of The Mind is a wealth of professional material at a pauper’s price. A 320 page hardbound book with detailed instructions and illustrations!

    Great new mental effects

    If you are looking for new mental effects to add your act you can try this book. There are many effects and ideas but not all are so good.
    But two or three worth the whole price of the book (cheap for a book like this). There is a method for knowing how many coins from a can will a man pick up; one of the greatest predictions ever where a billet is sealed in a inflated balloon and burst by the spectator himself reveailing whatever prediction you want; there is even a chapter with three methods of the famous" Any card at any number".
    Very good book
