I believe this book to be one of the most comprehensive books on muscle reading ever written. I have read many other books and have always had trouble really understanding muscle reading and relating it to real world situations.

Banachek teaches you ways to practice muscle reading in the real world with no fear of failure. That idea alone makes it a lot easier to practice. There is a lot of info on the history of contact mind reading. All I can say is like anything Banachek puts out, I highly recommend this book. If you are truly interested in learning contact mind reading this book will make that an easy process.

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is "Muscle Reading?"

What muscle reading is isn't important. What it allows you to do is what's important.
Muscle reading can allow you to find an object someone merely thinks of, no billets no paper, no peeks, they never write down the object or even say it. They only think it so they alone know what the item is, yet you are able to lead them to the thought of object. You can find objects hidden while you are out of the room. These are only a few example of the limitless things that can be done.
I believe this to be one of the purist forms of "mindreading" available. Yes it does takes hours, months, or years of practice, but so does a double lift.

braunmagic,

You obviously have not read Satori, Fitzkee or any of the other standard books on this topic.

I wish to correct your review as follows:

For someone interested only in muscle reading who already owns the standard texts there is not much in the way of new information.

The true merit of the book lies in the way it functions as a general introduction to ideomotoric responses, dealing with dowsing, pendulums and table tilting as well. Also, the inclusion of Burlingame's text is brilliant.

For muscle reading alone, buy Satori. For a "13 steps" of ideomotoric responses, buy this book.

FYI, Banachek's book also includes an interesting section on pendulum work that might interest some. I know I felt it was a pleasant suprise because, either it wasn't advertised or I missed it.

My opinion, if you are new to muscle reading, is to read Satori first. But do not forget that to use muscle reading is very difficult and needs a lot of practice.

It takes practice, but really is easy if you just concentrate. About ten years ago I read how to do it from a book that I can't remember the title of. I was at a party and left the room. A spectator placed an ink pen in the room for me to find.

She held my arm as I went around looking for it. I found it and was just as amazed as everyone there!

Muscle reading is fun to do and looks like real magic.

Bamba,
I have read the Satori book, and I personally feel that the Banachek book is easier to understand. After reading it I had a better understanding of how to start and practice muscle reading in the real world. The fact that the Banachek book has a way of practicing in the real world with no risk of failure is something that I don't recall reading in the Satori book (although I maybe wrong).
I am in no way saying the Satori book isn't a great book, I just feel it's a lot easier to really grasp and understand the ideas behind muscle reading after reading Banachek's book. Heck, buy both! Smile
Just my thoughts,
Brent Braun

Banachek is an easier read and has more "cheats" than Satori, but the idea of cheats is in no way new. If you want, I can check what other books they show up in. Most of the Banachek cheats are original though. Oh yeah, Lee Earle has one also.

It's a wonderful book and contains much food for thought, especially for those who want to get into 'real' mindreading. What really tickled me though was the section on teaching your dog mindreading ( not strictly in the Banachek section I might add ). As the owner of a cute and intelligent mutt, it opens up many possibilities !

Haven't seen the Banachek book yet, but I'm sure it's excellent. Just for the record, Making Contact by Satori is a small (about 70 pages) but solid intro to muscle reading (or contact mindreading, as Satori calls it in the subtitle) that was published by H&R Magic Books about five years ago. I think the book is well setup to give a beginner exercises, etc., as a way of developing skill. And it is a developable skill. I remember first fooling around with this years and years ago. My friends would be shocked when I could find small objects hidden in their apartment. Done right, it can seem as close to real magic as possible.
