I cant tell you how much that book has helped me. But for me this is number 6. doesn't make the top 5 cut...........just yet. Smile

This SEEMS like an unusual choice? Books for laypeople aren't usually useful to Mentalists i.e shuteye material. Is this one different?

What do you mean by 'what'?
Surely you mean 'how'?
And what about my question:

Why name your own book??

Because it's one of my top five favorite books for mindreading this being Christmas and all ... and also because it is a book born to belong in such a list.

Had you read it you would have listed it. Consider it for 2008!

OMG, I cannot believe more people did not 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 in that order. 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 rarely 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.

As far as DVD'S I tell you Osterlind's and Banachek's are tough to beat!!!

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.
Author of Illusions of Influence, a treatise on Equivoque.
PM me for details and availability.

In the spirit of non-conjuring books, everything by Carlos Castaneda.

I enjoyed the Don Juan books, but had personal issues with the drug references.

My favorites are:

Paramiracles by Ted Lesley.
Annemann - The Life And Times Of A Legend by Max Abrams.
Mind, Myth & Magick by T.A. Waters.
13 Steps To Mentalism by Corinda.
World of Super Mentalism Book Two by Larry Becker.

There are so many fantastic books out on the subject of mentalism but these are the ones that I frequent in my magic book library most often.
As magicians we create what onlookers call magic. If they truly believe in what we have created for them to witness then magic is real!!!

I always find it interesting when this question is asked that rarely do I see a book mentioned that I have always considered second only to Corinda,and that is The Handbook of Mental Magic by Kaye. Don't be misled by the title. It is a very comprehensive book for mentalists not magicians.

Does Annemann - The Life And Times Of A Legend by Max Abrams, contain everything within the book Practical Mental Magic, or would you advice to get them both?
