Amateur Magician's Handbook- H. Hay
-It's all in here

Mind, Myth, & Magick- Waters
-Basically a how-to of moving from moves and techniques to actual routines

Strong Magic- Ortiz
-How to evaluate yourself and your magic/mentalism, and improve them both.

Art of Astonishment series- Harris
-The written pieces on Astonishment should be required reading. The effects themselves are varied and anybody should be able to find several somethings for them out of this.

This last slot is pretty tough to fill, I haven't even got to 13 Steps, PME, anything from Banachek or Becker, etc... Hmmmm... HMMMMM...

Well, in terms of impact, I am going cheat and go with a three-way tie:

For Mizarrism:

13 Steps / PME / MMM (I consider that one large set of books sorta like the Bible)

The Mind and Magic of David Berglas (demonstrating the power of knowing two techniques well can make you an International Man of Mystery - its all in the presentation afterwards)

Maximum Entertainment (I am surprised only one person mentioned this yet - very important)

5 Points in Magic (Juan T) and Ascanio Volume 1 (I put these together as they are buddies and they sort of go together - theory and practical nuances

Finally, the complete set of MAGICK (for a plethora of ideas and inspirations)

-------------------

OK, I sorta cheated since the above is more than 5....

I am happy to say I own most of the sources listed by others - it really is hard to nail down the most important but really, I'd say thematically:

1 book on the Basic concepts and techiques

1 book on presentation

1 book on applications

1 book of fine tuning methods and subtleties of theatrical angles

1 book of a plethora of effects for trying out


Fill the above, you are doing well.

I find it interesting that, 3 or 4 years ago, most every such list contained "The Color Series." They were legend when they were difficult or expensive to get, and rarely seen on these lists now that Prism is widely available. Likewise, a lot of books on these lists are expensive or difficult to get.

My own Favorites are

Artful Mentalism
Perception Is Everything
Psychological Subtleties
Mindsights
And finally, in the "I know something you don't know" spirit that drives our art and which I alluded to in my opening comments: Anything that I have that you might not be able to get your hands on.

OMG, I cannot believe more people [b]did not[/b] mention... .Mind, Myth, and Magick By : T.A. Waters. To me it's the New Testament of the Anneman and Corinda Book. I don't have much books, as I learn more by Video / DVD. My Top 3 Mentalist are Osterlind, Banachek, and Brown, and [b]in that order[/b]. Okay with the few books (like 12 on Mentalism I do have), my top five in no order are....

1. Mind, Myth, & Magick - T.A. Waters.
2. 13 Steps - Corinda
3. Practical Mental Effects - Anneman
4. Paramiracles - Ted Lesley
5. Mentalism With You In Mind - Craig Karges (This is a gem even if the manuscrpt is 52 pages. Like the Hector Book, this or him, I [b]rarely[/b] ever seen mentioned.

Other books I have, I might as well name them as I only got a few, are:

1. Theater Of The Mind
2. Prism
3. Peek Performances
4. Larry Becker's World Of Super Mentalism
5. Tarbel only 4 & 6.

I am going to assume that you intend this listing to be magic/mentalism books and not books released to the general public. Here goes in no particular order:

1) Psychological Subtleties
2) Maximum Entertainment
3) Mind and Magic of David Berglas (I sold mine but cried every minute packing it)
4) Wise Guy
5) Expert Coin Magic (It don't make sense to some, but to others it does.)

That's my list of favorite books for mindreading available to the magic community. Items such as short run editions and material available to the general public at stores like B&N, Borders, and the like are not included here.

Am I the only one here who's read "Maurice Fogel - In Search of the Sensational"?

I agree that Marvin Kaye's book is underrated and in my opinion Prism is overrated - but then I don't do "mental magic".

My top four would be:

13 steps
Practical Mental Effects
Mind, Myth and Magick
Mind Reading (Knepper)

I'm struggling with the fifth. It could be Kaye, the Fogel book, Act Two, Tarbell... If you count E-books it would be Switchcraft.

I'll say all of Karl Fulves's Dover books.

Message: Posted by: Logan Five (Nov 6, 2008 09:33PM)
Here is mine for your consideration:

Sensational Mentalism Books - Robert Nelson/ This was my first taste of mentalism when I was a kid ordering tricks from the Tannen's mail order dept. Those books had an impact on me.

Mind, Myth and Magick -Waters/ Can I say anymore?

Mind Reading- KK/ There is a lot of material in here that many of the " shut eyes " use in there work. Kenton has done his homework. Also, EE's reading presentation is excellent, a new approach IMHO and I use a modified version of this in my work.

Divine Intuition - Lynn A. Robinson / No, this isn't a book on mentalism but in my work doing readings..the book is a Godsend of information and quotes and soundbytes and just common sense info. Lynn is a reader from the Boston area ( maybe TonyEye knows her ), and she knows her subject inside and out. Invaluable!!

Stunner's Plus - Larry Becker/ Lot's of ingenious methods and routines in this book. This book leans more on " Mental Magic " rather then old-school mentalism but when I doing performance mentalism, I used a lot of the material.

I guess those are my top five but I have to say that I read a lot of spiritual type of books and these books bring some sense of contentment in my life. Some of these books are Ask and It Is Given, Conversations with God, Illusions, The Seth Material, The Secret, The Divine Matrix, The Artist's Way, Dr. Wayne Dyer's books, 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself and many others.
