I am very happy to let you know that the book from Aazan Makhdoomi ”MENTALISM PRESENTATIONS” is finally out and available to your favorite dealer!
I met Aazan about a year ago and I was really impressed by his way of thinking and after months of work we finally produced a book which I really think was something missing in the mentalist’s library!
In this book you will find original presentations and justifications for classic methods of mentalism.
For more detailed info read the ad copy below:

"Aazan is a deep thinker and has a wonderful understanding of how our audiences think too. Lucky for us he shares his insights in this important book. Justification is an extremely useful tool in the creation of believable miracles and Aazan has crafted some really excellent ideas. There are loads of books about HOW to do what we do but very rare are the books that discuss WHY we do it! This is one of the rare ones and may even change how you think about mentalism."
- Marc Paul

MENTALISM PRESENTATION by AAZAN MAKHDOOMI & LUCA VOLPE PRODUCTIONS

Presentations and Justifications in mentalism are topics towards which we don't pay much attention to.

We tend to forget that its only our words that stay with our audience. Therefore, Aazan has filled this book with scripts hoping that with the help of presentations will aid performers to justify their procedures.

Justifications for such as:

WHY should the spectator write down their thought?
WHY do we touch the billet?
WHY do we need to tear the billet for a center tear?
WHY dp we put the billet inside our peek wallet?
WHY do we go back to the wallet?

And not just that. Injecting presentations in classic methods such as acidus novus, billet switches, Nail writer and much more, to improve the existing effects and make them more entertaining and engaging.

For those who like to use playing cards in mentalism, there are scripts and ideas to create very clean, direct and powerful effects without sleights.

A section on audience engagement in which there are ideas provided which can be used by the stage performer to engage the maximum possible audience.

Finally, bonus presentational ideas for effects like Double Cross, Invisible touch, Svengali Pads, PIN reveals. and a bonus effect for iPhone users which is a self working and impromptu principle to create clean and direct effects such as book tests, thought of card, star sign divinations etc, all without the use of any magic apps!

SOME OF THE TOPICS INCLUDES:

Write it down
Billets
Billet Switches
Center Tear
The Swami
Peek Wallets
Playing Cards
Audience Engagement
Additional Presentational Ideas
Bonus: Failsafe
All the material in this book can be used right away by any level of performer. Whether you're an experienced performer, you can definitely find presentations in here and customize it to your needs. Or, if you're starting out in mentalism, then this book will be a great way to understand the significance of presentations to help you become a better performer.

If you missed the live Azaan also shared a full routine (and a fantastic justification) on why we have to place a business card back into the peek wallet.
We then brainstormed and I think we come up with a lot of food for thought!

Just finished reading this gem. I wish I had this book when I got in mentalism.

This book has around 30 presentations. It covers topics like :
why is a thought written down?,
why do we put a billet in our peek wallet?,
why do we tear the billet for a C.T. and so so much more!

Aazan has attempted to answer questions with the help of presentations, questions which have always bothered us, questions we always ask ourselves.

I got my copy from Vanishing and I'm so glad I bought it. I'm teliing you that THIS IS A MUST BUY!

Hello everyone, i’m Aazan and I am a mentalist from a place called Kashmir.

I’ve been extremely privileged to release my first book to the community which became a reality with the help of Luca Volpe.

The book is quite different than the usual mentalism books because it’s main focus is presentations and justifications.
Over the years I’ve seen some questions repeatedly come up in discussions and I’ve attempted to answer them using
presentations in the book.

If you’re someone who believes whatever happens in our effects should be justified and should have proper motivation,
then look no further because this book is for you.

If anyone has questions regarding the contents of the book feel free to ask. Smile

We all have a tendency to gather a ton of methods and spend little to no time focusing on presentations. Aazon’s book is full of solid presentations that are engaging and justify (should you desire to) the necessary work. I’ve been involved with mentalism for about a decade, almost 8 performing professionally; and this book is definitely in my top 10 list. Soooo good!

Hi josh, thank you for your kind words Smile. I'm glad you found the book interesting and hope you find the presentations useful in your own effects. The presentations(around 30) in the book can be directly used by anyone and are actually meant to be a road map on how to solve problems using presentations. I hope more and more performers find it useful.

Thanks again for sharing your thoughts! <3


Aazan.

I just finished reading this and and now re-reading certain parts. The mentalist community needs more books like this. Every day we have a new peek wallet/device, new methods for everything, but what do you do with all this? Does a new method or trick really help move your performance forward? What Aazan Makhdoomi in ”MENTALISM PRESENTATIONS” offers is thought into the why and how to actually present routines based on how our spectator's minds work. How to maximize the impact and limit or eliminate the spectator even recalling writing or the process itself. The book is formatted like Scripting Magic, if you are not familiar with that book I can't help you. Not every routine in the book is my style but each routine shows teaches you how to approach a presentation, how to motivate moves so they are forgotten. If you are a serious mentalist, if you have a peek wallet, if you use billets, a swami, etc...if you care at all about improving your performance and looking for inspiration for your routines I strongly recommend this. I suspect we will see more from Aazan Makhdoomi in the future.
