The best mentalism book I've read in recent years is "Mental Sweets" by Fabien Arcole. It's real world mentalism, well written and illustrated. Seems to be getting overlooked for some reason. Perhaps because the methods are not "clever" enough. They merely work.


Thanks for the heads up on "Mental Sweets!"

I just ordered a copy.

That is exactly the kind of mentalism book I like: fresh takes on classic effects by working pros.

Thanks Robb, very touched!!!
It's a book that I have co-written with my good friend and expert on billet work : Eric BERTRAND

SeattleSteve : I wish you a "good tasting". Don't hesitate to leave your impressions in the dedicated review topic once you have read it ... and if some questions remains, feel free to contact me in PM.

Holy moly is Atlas's new book terrific. Kind of stunned that it hasn't been discussed in the last few days in this context. Hard to think of things that are any better. I just was blown away by it.

Too many great books - I keep searching and discover more and more books - the really interesting thing for me is taking a little from each and getting a great routine - just need the finance to get everything on my wishlist

I've just seen this post - thanks and I'm pleased you liked it. I put a lot of effort into balancing philosophy and effects and am very pleased with the outcome. And thanks 252life as well - it is flattering to be ranked so highly on your list.

Best,

Atlas

Alain Nu has some great work available. If you can find a copy of his secrets and realities, there are some killer routines in there.

Check out the brilliant work of Sean Waters. His material is fantastic, and I consider him to be the best writer in the genre.
