I wish, it is so easy to gain this power quickly!

I always wondered why some people had such strong mental powers over other people. This is a powerful skill to learn, but I thought it wasn't something I could learn. That is until I listen this book! It gives easy step by step examples making it possible for anyone to learn how to do mental feats that will impress anyone around you. This isn't about magic, but when you see the results you will make people wonder whether it isn't magic you are doing! I wish, it is so easy to gain this power quickly!

Good discussion.

This was a good intro. Gives you the basic foundation, but what really makes this is that it introduces you to how this genre works. You know what to look for when you want to dive deeper.

This book DOES NOT teach mentalism!

It speaks about reading minds and feeling "energy".
This is a scam! Mentalism, like all magic, is about cool tricks - people don't really read your mind, they use a trick to seem like they do.
This book claims they can ACTUALLY do that.

much less mentalist material than title suggests

material seriously lacking. this is merely an overview that actually gets lost on other topics.

Excellent Book!

It is a very thorough delineation of the classic techniques. Great book on psychology. There are card tricks, amnesia tips and even illusions in here. If you are into mins control, you are definitely going to want to listen this book to the end.

Just don’t

Lying opinionated waste of time. Taking about everything and nothing. Touching on so many subjects that none is provided with any insight.

Expecting More Details

It is difficult to find useful insight on Mentalism, I was hoping that wasn’t the case with this book ... but .this is an overview of Mentalism and a career in Mentalism. I learned nothing here I could not find on YouTube lol.

Mentalism just became clear

Even though I never understood what mentalism was or why people were acting so mysteriously about it, it all became clear now because of this short guide. Thanks.
