I officially hate you, Luca. Smile

Kidding, of course! I'm still waiting for "Emotional Mentalism" to arrive before I can even think about this one, but this is definitely on my list.

Luca sent me a copy of Psiuke a few days ago. I was still in post-holiday crash mode (lying on the couch moaning about the fact that I COULD have completed that degree instead of flitting from party to party with bits of paper and mysterious pads in tow) and so the timing was perfect. I read the whole thing through cover to cover.

I'll often look at a book and think "If there's even just ONE thing in here I can use, it's worth the price of the book." The problem with Psiuke is that there's too MUCH great stuff here. First: you get all of Luca's material -- effects he's done in the real world -- on cruise ships as well as for his corporate clients. The nuances are there. The routines are beautifully explained and illustrated...but best of all there's room for each reader to inject their own personality and performance style into any routine. If you've heard of Luca's Ultimate Chair Test Routine -- but never seen it -- prepare for pure delight. This is a brilliant concept. Commercial and fun to present.

And as if that wasn't enough -- Luca also includes new material from a who's who of mentalism: Osterlind, Knepper, Harlan, Amira and many more. Each one brings a new perspective -- a new concept. These are wonderful routines from other performers who present mentalism for a living. There is just one professional routine after another. As with all quality books you'll find at least one thing in every routine that you can use.

You know something else about this book? It's one of the few out there that don't just contain great routines -- but there's a pile of theory and solid thinking about mentalism and the presentation of wonder. Psiuke really is a handbook for the serious performer -- a wonderful resource for the mentalism community.

And, while it's true that I have a contribution in this book as well -- I'll be completely honest: if I didn't like what I read...I wouldn't endorse it. I'd just stay on the couch. But Psiuke (aside from being a title that will make you go "huh") is a vastly under-priced resource and is absolutely worth every accolade it's going to get.

2013 is off to a strong start with this one.

Before talking about PSIUKE I would just like to go on a little detour first.

If someone buys an effect that turns out to be, in their opinion, very good. They like the way the creator thinks, they way they structure things and feel like they have a similar mindset to the purchaser. It is not unreasonable to assume they would buy more work from the same creator. And assuming no sudden massive change of focus from the creator, it's not unreasonable for the purchaser to be happy with this second purchase.

Some people then go on to buy everything that this creator puts out, and when opinions are being offered they would naturally be positive about the effects and the creator in question.

This can (and has) lead to accusations of being a member of the creators "band of followers" and being guilty of hype. (though no suggested motive for this hype is ever proffered)

So at the risk of the same accusations here goes:
I have a lot of Luca's work. I like the way he thinks. I like his focus on making effects meaningful for the audience. (whether a full theatre or a single person)
I also like the way his effects leave plenty of scope for each performer to put their own spin on things.

I haven't finished the book yet, but as I know a fair amount of the included material from previous purchases, I can say that I think this will be a highly beneficial read for anyone whatever their level of involvement in mentalism.

I am looking forward to another evening on the sofa finishing this off.
A nice collection of works from the best dressed man in mentalism Smile

PSIUKE,
It is amazing how Luca comes up with his routines and ideas. I am a fan of his work and have always find value in his top notch routines.

Once I sat down to read PSIUKE I realized that this was a book that contained professional advice and effects. Not only from Luca but others! I like the idea of Luca placing some of his best between the covers of the same book. Including his hard hitting 'Ultimate Chair Routine Act'.

PSIUKE first effect is a chair type routine where the spectators will believe that they have the ability to read minds. This is a fresh approach and I found it to be refreshing and something that will pack small and play big.

I am sure many here already have books by Luca and already know many of the routines. So it isn't hard to believe when I say that within these pages are professional routines that can enhance your own program and make you money. I love doing Luca's P.D.R (Psyhometry Drawing). This one routine I have done in the middle of a room full of people and had everyone's attention!

Another routine that I like is 'Stone of Destiny'. It is Luca's take of the which hand routine. Another winner for me.

I have a small list of performers who I really enjoy learning from. And Luca is among this small group. What I find each and every time that I read something by Luca is that every little thing has been thought through. As you read a routine, you just know that it is going to play very well for your paying clients.

For those that haven't taken the plunge into the world of Luca Volpe, I can honestly recommend this book because of the professional routines contain within. There are routines and bits of advice from Luca and others that are thought provoking as well as being highly commercial.



Best

Luca kindly sent me the pdf. for "PSIUKE" about a week ago. I was honored a while back when Luca asked me to be a contributor to his book.....thank-you Luca!

I have been busy with some personal projects ...so I really have not had the time to fully delve into this 205 page book.....that is packed with Luca's presentations, and those of the guest contributor's.

While perusing the table of contents...I was immediately drawn to the title: "The Horus Eye" p.36. I guess being an amateur egyptologist ma have helped catch my attention.

'The Horus Eye'...is a brilliant and very interesting routine that I look forward to performing. Now.....I look forward to finding other gems in this book that suit my personal style.

Excellent job on this book Luca!

Thanks Rich glad you like it! Hope you will have time to read all!
Just to clarify, that the pdf is not for sale (I had someone asking me if this book will be released as pdf) this why I decided to make a nice hardbound copy to collect all the past pdf and single booklet PLUS, obviously, including great routines as the one from Rich, David Thiel, Osterlind, Harlan,Amirŕ,Nefesch and others great minds!
