Mentalism books have come and gone, and the classics have stood the test of time. We will have to wait to see if this one stands up alongside of the timeless classics. In the meantime, I think this is a worthwhile book with some interesting ideas.

I haven’t used any of the full routines in my work, but I have implemented some of the suggestions, methods, and theories into my work and I’m quite happy.

If you do any kind of metal bending magic, this is almost a must have. Some interesting, fresh ideas are shared here.

If you do strolling magic and want to add a few simple mentalism effects, this is a good source. You will get a few very simple, usable effects for strolling. If you are already established, you will probably already have a favorite handling of some similar effects printed here, but there will be new principles and ideas for you to use and experiment with.

My only major issue is the price. I think this is slightly overpriced. I understand books are expensive to produce. This book DOES have a huge dose of information. It will depend on the reader if the information is useful. I think those odds are very good.

If you are into mentalism or metal bending, I would recommend you make the investment in this new book that I hope will become a modern classic.
