I spend almost more than $1000 per month for buying a magic products, mental effect at the most. Some of it are great, and some sucks. However, I just think about my best investment in my art, and I think it's "conversation with mindreader" by Ben Cummings.

For you guys who don't have it, it's a must!
Basically Ben is asking the same question to those all mentalist, but the answer, the thinking behind them, are just so amazing, contradictive and entertaining.

You wont be able to learn a lot of new tricks there if that's what you wish for, but you'll get things that's worth beyond that. Take my word for it!

I believe there is other treat about this, but I just want to say thanks to Ben for making this project.

Oh, one more thing. You can get it with better price now, since he offers the MP3 version!

Yes, it's a great series---a treasure trove of information.

This is one of those hidden secrets in mentalism. I'd love to keep it that way.

Yes, indeed...that's why I don't tell them how to purchase. Ony serious mentalists will ever get these items.

Don't worry only the serious performer will see the benefit of these. The casual observer will, and they have, say they are no good.

Well, it certainly is well hidden. I tried to Google Ben Cummings and conversations.....no result. So if anybody knows where this can be purchased from then I'll be quite happy.

What is the question that he asks? Also, is there much on the discs that cannot be found elsewhere (in other words, if you've read and seen many mentalism books and videos, will it be redundant)? Is it mainly discussions of technique or more general stuff like style?

Thanks.

I wouldn't mind getting this. It's just a matter of the $399. :(
Message: Posted by: mindgames (Oct 27, 2004 10:34PM)
Scott, I believe that you can get the MP3 version which is much cheaper, and you can use your favorite MP3 player like ipod to hear them.

That has to be the funniest thing I have EVER read on the Café. I just can't stop thinking about it and laughing really hard.

Cheers, Shrink.

Was thinking the same thing, or that he is really Shrink in disguise! ;)

I was only joking, Richard.

Glad to hear your show has sold out! Would have loved to have been there!

I agree, Ben Cummings "Conversations with Mind Readers" is one of my best investments. There are so many 'secrets' within even single sentences from such a variety of sources.

The monumental task of putting it all together and the questions he asks demonstrates Ben's love of the art.

I wonder if anyone could talk about how these CDs are unique. I checked out the web site, but I'm still wondering--are there unique methods or effects?
Message: Posted by: bubbleburst2004 (Oct 28, 2004 05:54PM)
There are very few effects revealed.

There are very few methods of doing effects revealed.

There are plenty of methods for making the performance of mentalism more powerful.

They are unique in that there is no other product like it available.
