Well there is no point trying to hide it from you all any longer...

My Secret is Out! Smile


THE SECRET, is a very simple and direct act of Mind Reading, you have three spectators on stage, sitting on the chairs, you tell them to close their eyes and to think one secret...after a little concentration you are able to read the spectator's secrets! Nothing is written down and no pre-show at all!

Very well structured and I can see myself doing this!

Bravo!

- Luca Volpe, Mentalist



One of the best impromptu Mind Reading effects taken one step further.

Almost REAL Mind Reading!

Very emotional and intense!

- Lars Ruth, Mentalist




Being able to perceive the thoughts of an individual without them speaking or writing down any information is impressive enough.

Imagine taking that amazement and trebling it. You read it right, three thoughts revealed without any prior knowledge of the individuals involved.

It’s shocking to say the very least.

It’s a reputation maker for the novice performer to the seasoned pro; nothing to carry, no fancy equipment to buy.

Easy to learn technique and clearly explained by Anthony Black.


The future is bright; the future is Black.


Mark Thorold – Mentalist & Creator

As it stands...Yes. I do believe though once you read the method...it will allow you to create other ideas and presentations...so maybe you could develop other ideas with the method.

Hmmmmm tricky one to answer...

It's currently written up as a stage/parlour piece and that is how it stands today.

I got this today and got to say its one of those things you read and think ' why the hell did I not think of that'!!
It's mixing an old technique with something new and resulting in a lovely principle which can be expands to be used in many effects
Anthony reminds me a bit of Luke Jermay in his writing, well done
I will be using this for sure

Just be careful with mentalism adverts. I bought a DVD by Ben Earl called Skin. The ad suggests no gimmicked coins are used.

You be the judge. Hardly the impromptu trick I feel I was led to believe it was. The rest of the DVD was terrible too...there is a description of the Primacy/Recency effect on the DVD in Earls apparent attempts to infuse Psychology with Mentalism...well Mr Earl, the secrets out, you explained the theory totally incorrectly. You gave it the polar opposite description of it's actual meaning. So the secrets out then re your depth of knowledge of psychology and mentalism! If you want good mentalism with accurate 'Psychology' references and 'non' gimmicked items then stay well away from Ben Earls 'Skin'.


You do know I'm not Ben Earle...Right Smile

You got the right thread?

Indeed.

I think "the secret" is exactly the kind of release bruce berstien is referring to in his "reading between the lines" essay in unreal.

Highly annoyed that I spent cash on this.
I no longer smoke camel cigarettes.

Anthony´s ‘The Secret’ is a great take on Jermay´s Touching on Hoy; which allows the performer to create a solid piece with a unique premise.

The "failsafe" technique is excellent!

To Smoking Camel , its a gem for what you paid. Ive blown stacks more on pure **** that has been promoted by various arse licking friends of friends on this Forum . Chalk it up to experience if you don't like it and be glad Anthony is modest with his pricing .

Some things to think about:



*Nothing is written down by you or anyone else
*Can be performed Blindfolded (my preferred style)
*Can be performed Naked (not my preferred style)
*No pre-show involved
*No Electronics
*No Peeks
*NO 'Touching'
*No Pumping
*No Fishing
*No nothing 'extra' to buy or make!
*Suitable for stage or smaller parlour type settings
*Can be adapted to fit your own theme/persona/ideas and further routines
*It's Powerful, Simple and Direct...Mind Reading at its Purest.
*A Reputation Maker

Is it possible to explain how we ask the spectators to think of a secret a little more? Is it A secret or one of THEIR secrets?

are there any bits of writing used? I know you say nothing is written down, is anything printed used?

If that sounds like fishing just ignore it, genuinely interested to hear the answers though, sounds like a nice routine!

Can this principle be applied over the telephone? In other words, can this be made into a phone effect?
