I used to read a lot of books like this one when I was a lot younger, and I love this sort of thing. I’m curious how it might read to someone who isn’t already accustomed to and accepting of the style and tone.

No, I have no interest in learning mentalist and you won’t see me with a deck of cards at parties. But as long as you’re not the sort that is disappointed when the magic is “ruined”, it’s a fun read.

I enjoyed reading about the things within because it gave me some interesting ideas and inspiration. Overall, this book is good because of Corinda’s voice. He is both to the point which is something often evaded in modern day effects and quite funny.
There are moments, for example, where he tells you to keep the attention off certain things and not “wave it around like a flag on coronation day,” – he is witty and engaging and this book is certainly comprehensive. Jan 12, Alan rated it it was amazing. Like an old fashioned builders yard this book has enough information laying around in it to build a dozen houses in different styles.
This book may not appeal to non magicians, but for those wanting to know about the art of mentalism this is still a great place to start. As once you start to learn you will realise the true value of what is contained within.
