Most classic magic tricks are carefully guarded secrets of the magician communities all over the world. Common people are never privy to the secrets behind these tricks. Try as you might, you will not be able to find how David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear in 1983.
In his famous ‘Bigger Secrets’ series, William Poundstone tried to give some explanations to the phenomenon, but nothing has been proved beyond doubt. David Blaine, another famous magician of our time, is equally successful in guarding the secrets behind his famous street magic tricks.
I had interest in learning magic tricks since I was a child. Needless to say, I consulted many books on this particular subject. Recently I stumbled upon an e-book, Master Mentalism, that I find truly interesting. This book helps me to reminisce my good old days that I spent on learning street magic to levitation. This book includes tons of great magic tricks I simply fall in love with. It seems like they are coming within my core passion.
The most exciting part of this book is that it covers beyond metalism such as hypnotism, levitation and card tricks. I especially like the simplicity of the chapter arrangement and the way the content is flowing throughout the book. It seems like you are taken smoothly from one chapter to another. Undoubtedly, this book can claim to be a superb manifesto revealing many classic tricks of the most famous magicians of our time.
The sheer simplicity and brilliance of the ideas that work behind some of these tricks just left me spellbound, even when I am known to at least some of magical tricks. More interestingly, this book had helped me to grab attention of my friends when I am in any parties. Even the professional magicians will benefit from Master Mentalism as there are many tricks described are really rare.
Though there are so many positive sides of Master Mentalism, but I personally dislike few factors. I really didn’t understand why Ryan did not add any videos with his e-book, when the primary aim of the tricks is certainly practical and not just theoretical. Also I think more pictures should be added and the reason is same. It’s somehow difficult to grasp the entire feel from theory only.
However, my overall impression about the book is good and I believe that beginners can get real benefit from this book. Though some tricks are known by the professionals, but still gems are there for them as well.
