It's good. You can always get welfare. No, my wife doesn't think I'm funny either.

At the end of the day, the mentalism is as strong as YOU make it. Smile

Simply a MUST HAVE. It's a collection of previous book of TA Waters. And it's really good: from psychometry to prediction, from tarot to reading...

Get it... no more questions!!!
The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

Buy it. Very few books have such a range of ideas. If you're hoping to write your own material, this is THE source of inspiration.

It's a great book, but worth remembering is that Waters wasn't really a performer as much as he was a thinker.
Most folks place this book in the top 4 or 5 mentalism books of all time, but are also quick to point out that not every effect in it is an ideal one to perform live.

Having read the book more than a few times I'm not sure I agree that some effects aren't for performance if one was seriously enough inclined to want to perform every single effect in the book.

Suffice it to say that the book contains MORE than enough practical material for performance, and MORE than enough material designed to stimulate your mind into thinking more about the craft and what's possible.

As others have said above, it's a must have.

My favorite effect is the one with the dancing monkey demon. Now, I carry a monkey with me everywhere I go.

If mentalism is your thing, this book is a must, together with Corinda's 13 Steps to Mentalism, and Annemann's Practical Mental Effects.

Silverking,

Did you ever get the chance to see Thomas perform?

No Tom, I live in the wrong part of the continent to have been able.

But my post referred anecdotally to the fact that Waters is remembered by most folks today not for his live performances, but for his written record....and primarily this book.

Having seen him perform, I can report that I found him to "have the chops" as I stated in another of Mr. Crebar's topics.
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......um=15&14


I found him to be very much a performer. He was an actor as well, for any who did not know.

I can't account for the quantity of his performing, but I can attest to the quality!

Cheers,

Tom

Mind, Myth, and Magick is a must. In addition to a wealth of "workers", there are also what Harry Lorayne might call pathway ideas. Simply a watershed volume for mentalists and Bizarreists.

Best,
Vlad

This thread got me re-reading Mr. Waters classic. While I have already heartily recommended this book in this thread, I am simply astounded by what I missed upon the first reading.

If TRIONIC was sold as a seperate effect today (with DVD lol) it would easily sell for 50.00.

What can I say? BUY BOOKS!!

Best,
Vlad
