Hi Everyone, I receive my contributors copy of Liber Mentis this morning.
It is a thing of beauty. It runs to over 387 pages.
I'm going to have to find some time today to dive into this, there are so many exciting contributions.
Congratulations to everyone involved.

...and a fine piece of work it is too Dale. For the record my contribution is no pipe-dream either. With several hundred performances, it's one of my impromptu 'go to' effects.

I am really enjoying the book, the range of effects, routines and essays is wide and varied.

Mine has arrived but as I ordered two other books at the same time, it may be awhile before I can offer any substantial comments.

At last I have it in my (huge) hands.
Not had any time today in the afternoon to read it seriously, of course (academia, preparing to leave for TM, being tired..)

BUT:
three things I did have a look at. And these are gorgeous:
- D. Berglas on a *very* peculiar form of mindreading;
- Enrique's thoughts on the Tarot; and
- Dan Baines about how to 'do certain things' to a deck of cards.

The level is, like, -*outstanding*?
Yep - If you like understatement...

This will be on display tomorrow at Tabula Mentis XII with Freddie Valentine, Dale Shrimpton, Peter Antoniou, Jon Thompson, Alex Marsh, and Christian Chelman...

Many of the contributors will be there and I hear some signing will be taking place as well.

Copies are whisking their way around the world to the United Arab Emirates, Seattle, Santa Barbara, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Scotland, New York City, Miami, Belfast, Germany, among others...

Very pleased with the take up of this and do hope that folks find great value between its pages.

Cheers

And Canada too

Mine arrived and its amazing

Kudos to psycrets!!!!!!

This reminds me of the now over oracle magazine - except on steroids - all the stuff I love - blends of mentalism, bizarre, storytelling, performance art and more.

And although I bought it for Berglas material automatically - the level of other contributions are high caliber - no garbage or pipe dreams seem to have been included.

It's also massive so I can't give it a full review as yet.... But I will say this is more than worth what I paid...

Hype? No - am I known to hype???? I'm just saying I found my holiday reading and practice book!!!

I just wish this would be a limited run so that they would likely become worth $1000 each in a couple o years

I'm surprised that no-one's submitted a full review of this yet. Surely there must be enough copies of it around by now.

Perhaps only Todd, Steve and I have read the whole thing...

Jheff has just issued a positive review in his newsletter, but it doesn't seem to be on his website yet.

I have received lots of feedback Barry and Jheff has sent a review in his newsletter based on having read a third of the book...it is worth reading the whole book, so I for one am happy to wait for the reviews once colleagues have had a chance to read and digest the contents.

Cheers

I would very much appreciate a review as well and for the same reason.

Given the amount of material contained in the extra-dimensional space between the covers, you may be waiting a while. Smile

My initial impressions: loads of contributors, lots of usuable stuff, and at the very least, and you also get the Atlas Brookings effect ("Real Thing"). Am I going to use everything in the book? I doubt it. That said, I think it's very inexpensive for what you get, especially if you're a performer.

I'm imagining this is going to be very close to Neal Scryer and Friends, in that it's a combination of multiple performers' material varying over different subjects. Am I correct?

Also, I hear that Carnival of Secrets is along the same lines as well. Could it be correct in saying that all three books are SOMEWHAT of an extension of each other?

I don't have Carnival yet, so I can't comment. I think the Neal Scryer & Friends comparison is an accurate one.

I have all three and think they are great. Carnival is about half Scryer and half from his friends.
