Hey all,

I'm thinking of ordering this book but I have a question, I already know the following from other sources:

Ring of truth
Number reversal
1-50 odd or 50-100 even force
word game(letters in a word)
shape force
vernons 5 card force.

Does the book have a lot more information or would I be better off getting something else? I just don't want to buy it to find I know everything already.

If you are buying this book for tricks you'd be better off with something else.

What are the other sources? Just curious to know.

Just can second Anabelle. A lot of tips on techniques and psychology as stated in the title.

Great tips on watches, Drawing dups, Verbal forces, etc.
IMO a must have for serious mentalist.

HIGHLYYY recommended.

The book does contain some tricks and routines but I found it WAY more valuable for its look at the use of wording, implication and indirect suggestion to help make ALL effects far more resonant and powerful.

Personaly, I find the book is like a special polish for all magic and mentalism:) You can use it on all your work.
I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner though, it would be kind of like haveing the most amazing polish with nothing to polish.

Number Reversal/Ring of Truth: Psi Series
Number Force: Don't remember heh
Word Game/Shape Force: Taught to me by another mentalist

This is a new classic, which means : Don't ASK!, Order it Immediately if you are serious about what you do.

This little, yet powerful book has given me tons of ideas and improvements and has made me smile in joy many, many times...

I think it's not a book to learn routines. This book give some elements to create your owns routines.
Don't buy it for the tricks, buy it for the treasures it contains.
It's a must have.
