I posted this in the ebook review section of the Café, but there hasn't been a reply, so thought I would post the question here:

I've seen 2 ebooks by Chris Wardle on lybrary.com. One is on the Svengali ("Beyond Svengali: Applying the Svengali Principle to Mentalism") and one is on the Mene Tekel deck ("Investigating the Mene Tekel Deck").

Curious about your thoughts on these 2 ebooks. Like/dislike, unexplored material & ideas, etc...

Re: the Svengali ebook, would you recommend this to someone who has Mark Lewis's books and Daryl's Essentials in Magic DVD (Wardle's focus seems to be mentalism, still...)?

Re: the Mene Tekel ebook, would you recommend this ebook to someone who has already explored "The Encyclopedia of Card Magic" and Kranzo's "Mene Tekel Miracles"?

Thank you in advance -
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I'd just like to point out both books mentioned are available again in print form individually or in combined form under the title "Investigations: The Chris Wardle Trilogy" (with Chris's first book "Ten Mysteries"). They are print on demand from The Book Patch. The cost is not much more than for the e-versions.

I love the Mene Teckel deck! Thanks Chessmann, I'm going to check out that book you mention. I have the Nate Kranzo MT DVD (and the EoCM of course). The other book I really like is Shawn Evans' "The Self-Contained Card Delivery System: Mene-Tekel Magic Maximized" from Memesis Magic. It's pretty basic but covers the history plus a lot of varieties of the MT concept.
