Ok guys let me tell you. What Juan Pablo is offering here is something really inspiring cuz he wanted to write a book on BODY mentalism ... and trust me there is one piece there that totally worth twice the price of the book. When I saw it for the first time I felt in love with it !!! And I instantly saw the potential of the method to adapt it and aply it in any field of magic.

He took some old principles and adapted them then he decided to replace props with bodies or part of em and developed something really interesting.

So... its an amazing idea to spend 30 usd in this project you will find a LOT of food for thought and really baffling principles and effects Smile

And diving into those pages you will dive into one of the most creative and passionate magician's minds of our times.

Look for BODY MENTALISM by Juan Pablo you won't regret it Smile

Can you describe what one of these effects might look like?

The description is a little light.

Also, how many spectators are involved in the effect?

Hi guys! This is our first published book and we’re very proud of it!
Juan Pablo Ibañez has a great creative mind!

This is the basic effect:
Five spectators go on stage and the Mentalist gives an object to one of them. While the Mentalist has his back turned, the spectators randomly pass the object on among themselves until one of them hides it inside his pocket. Now the Mentalist concentrates and tries to discover who is hiding the object. Finally, the performer starts “discarding” spectators until only one of them is left on stage, the one who is hiding the object.
This is the basic effect and its method is so versatile that it can be presented in endless ways. Here are some examples:
The spectators can pass the object on after they are being “discarded”.

It can be presented as a “Lie detector” routine. The spectators can tell the truth or lie, or even change roles (“honest” or “liar”) but the Mentalist always finds out where the object is and reveals the role chosen by each spectator.

Even though the mentalist does not know how many changes of the object’s position were made, any spectator may hide the object, but who has it can always be discovered.

If the object used is a deck of cards, an incredible prediction can be made, name a card they have thought of or perform an “Any Card at Any Number” Routine.
A book might be used, ending the routine with a Book Test.

A wristwatch can be used and as a climax, a selected time can be guessed.

Other options are to use drinking glasses containing different drinks or to discover the location of five different chess pieces.

The object may be a crumpled paper ball with the description of the last spectator remaining on stage, written inside.

It can be performed with 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 spectators.
The possibilities are endless!
I hope you enjoy it!

I liked it! Its exploring one concept, which isn't new, in many different ways. Lots of food for thought. The I.D. presentation I started doing straight away.

All the best,
Dan

From the title I would expect something involving body parts being used in a magical process. Like in a PK touch, where the magic happens to someone’s body, so to speak. You mentioning the ID it sounds like the body is only used instrumentally in the reveal, like “so you chose to put four fingers on your heart? Well, only one card in this deck is reversed... the 4H.” Is that assumption correct?
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

Without going into too much detail. It's an old principle using bodies (hence the name I guess) instead of things. But exloring this concept and taking it in some interesting directions.

All the best,
Dan
