I could resist no longer, and picked up Stuart’s new e-book up this morning. Inside, you will find his takes on six classic Annemann effects.

These are some of Annemann’s top routines. Add Stuart’s presentations and tips, and you have some real winners.

This is really cool because you already know (or can easily learn) the basic methods. If any one of these classic effects appeals to you, you’ll easily get your money’s worth from the book. If more than one of the effects are your “cup of tea,” then it’s a no-brainer. Just click “Buy.” If none of the effects fit your style, then you know that up front.

Here is a breakdown of what you get:


Pseudo Psychometry – This is a classic effect suitable for stage or parlor audiences. It packs small (all you need is a few envelopes) and plays really big. Stuart tips great patter, which provides a strong contemporary presentational framework. He has some great advice regarding the basic methodology, what to do and what not to do, how to properly conclude the effect etc. Then, he moves on to discuss the readings in some detail, which is the most important part of the effect. This is definitely a solid effect, made even stronger thanks to Stuart’s great advice.

Mystery of the Blackboard – This is a great Blindfold routine. Stuart includes some absolutely fantastic patter. There are also some great tips regarding the method and various aspects of the presentation. I saw something similar performed on stage, and it played fabulously. The only downside is that blindfold routines aren’t so great for folks who need glasses to see properly. Still, this is so good that I may need to buy a set of contact lenses.

Dead Men Tell No Tales – This is a cool impromptu one-on-one effect that I will definitely attempt. It’s funny, I’ve seen a lot of methods used for this, but don’t recall coming across the original version. It uses a method that I have never tried, and may need a little practice to get the hang of. Without giving it away, you will have to evaluate the performing environment to determine if the effect can be performed. Once again, Stuart provides some great patter that puts the effect into context. In this case, I will make some changes to the patter based on where I live, but the gist will remain the same.

Test of the Tiber – This super strong effect is not so well known because, for some odd reasons, it was not included in Practical Mental Magic. Some billet switching is required. Not much detail is given on this front, but there are plenty of available options out there, including two large works by Mr. Cumberland. Stuart also tips his presentation and provides a great deal of information on “pumping.” I will definitely use that information and it is, by itself, worth the full price of the e-book.

$1,000 Test Card Location – This is a good trick and Stuart provides some great tips. That said, it requires a certain amount of spectator management to ensure that things go your way. Stuart deal with this in the instructions, and details what he does if things don’t work as planned. It’s definitely a strong trick for experienced performers.

Easy Design Duplication – This is Annemann’s little known “Psychic Card Test.” It’s about as easy as they get, but uses playing cards. It will either fit your style or it won’t. The tips here are not voluminous, but they are good, nonetheless.

- - -

I can’t wait for the other two e-books in the series.

Together, the three books may become the definitive re-work of Annemann’s material.

Bottom Line: If any one of these classics is your “cup of tea,” this is an absolute MUST BUY.

Thanks Pete. Sorry for just noticing the post. On the plus side, I am sure that, by now, any paypal issues must have been resolved Smile

I just sent Stuart an email letting him know about the Paypal trouble. Hopefully, it'll get straightened out pretty soon.
