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.



Thank you so much for sharing your detailed feedback David! I'm really glad that many performers are finding the material inside thought provoking and applicable in their own work. Looking forward to share more with the community in the near future. <3

Picked this up based on that review. I would have passed otherwise. Looking forward to receiving this.

Hey, there Smile
The book contains presentations for classic methods of mentalism as mentioned in the description. The presentations can be modified to fit your needs depending on your style. There are some briefly explained ideas for audience engagement for stage, but overall the purpose of the book is to be a guide on how to create justifications and make effects meaningful using presentations.

Thanks Smile

I have just started to read this and already it has given me much food for thought - and I am only on page 17. Over 200 pages to go!

This really is a meaty and excellent publication. My one quibble is that there should have been a table of contents and listing of the chapter headings eg Billets, Peek Wallets etc. But apart from this, from what I have read and seen so far, heartily recommend.

Now back to the book ....

I was really tempted by the description of the effect here, but haven’t bought the book yet as I thought a possible method might include nail writing which I’m not fond of.

Obviously I’m not asking for the method, but would you be able to confirm (maybe via pm) if a nail writer is used at all?

I don't think you understand what this book is/what's in this book.

Hey, glad you’re interested. I understand why you’re not fond of a NW. but that’s not the purpose of the book Smile The book contains only presentations(around 30) for classic methods of mentalism. These presentations justify our procedures and add meaning to the effects that we already do.

Here’s a review by Chris if you’re interested( https://youtu.be/oE95BuCW0AI )

Hope it clarifies any questions you might have, in case of further question, kindly feel free to ask Smile
