Unlike any other study of this nature in the parapsychological world, the author’s background lies in the art of conjuring, sleight of hand and mentalism. You will learn how to replicate these demonstrations in the real world.
Christopher divulges secrets held close by these figures who have conned the world into believe their psychic skills are real and offers an insight in the history of psychic and psychokinetic stunts.
Honestly I expected a bigger book. That said, it is full of great information from Dee Christopher about preforming, his methods and how to be a good mentalist, and some tricks. It is more of a pamphlet than a book however. Also a lot of the pictures are a little too small to be useful. I'd say I'm 3/4 happy with the book. I just wish the pictures were bigger and that there was maybe more in it.
Interesting book. I got it today and read it front to back in one sitting.
Dee Christopher is a fantastic mentalist with some good insights on performance. Close to half the book is on spoon-bending follow by coins, keys, psychic surgery, etc. His techniques are well thought out and come with detailed explanations.
That being said the book could have used an editor. For example the spoon bending pictures are too small and cramped to be useful and twice he included rather long URLs to youtube videos. Don't get me wrong if this were a website with hyperlinks that would be great but I don't think many people will sit there and type out ./watch/feature= . . . well, you get the point. . .
All in all I like the book. Good moves, good routines, and good thoughts on performance. I'm happy.
