This is one of my favourite books it’s simply fantastic more than 800 pages full of beatiful ideas. There are a lot of new things, the effects are perfect and can fool even a magician. It’s a giant resource for mental magic. Any mentalist must have it! Simply the best!
In my opinion Phil Goldstein (alias Max Maven) is the best living mentalist in the world. I don’t think all his best material is here (but there is some..) The videoset is great, every effect is performed and explained clearly you can learn a lot just watching him. Some effects are worth the whole cost of video. Again a must for a mentalist!
This is just what you get, an Encyclopedia alphabetically ordered by the object used. There are really a lot of effects and puzzles and jokes the greatest part very easy but only a little part of them is really good you should choose them yourself. Finally a very good book, knowing some impropmtu magic is a must for every performer. Another good thing is that there are a hundreds of principles and ideas you can use to create new 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
