Hi there,

Here we go with the next book of ‘The Cavalli Files’: Volume III - SIGMA! Smile
Paolo’s brilliant 2005 book which received recommendations like this when it first came out:

SIGMA is a fantastic a "full time / real world" gets my highest recommendation! It is filled with TONS or great "workers". His ending for "chairvelopes" is VERY VERY VERY clever...I will definitely be using this in my show...


Now the actual print has even a foreword by the brilliant Colin McLeod!

PLUS exclusively for those who already got themselves the first two volumes of the Cavalli Files series and order the third one as well we offer an additional bonus ebook again.


'IRIS' is a brilliant collection of three ideas from the ingenious mind of our friend Looch. You should know that two out of those three routines have never been published before – and they are awesome! You’ll get a ‘bonus’ that would be worth of the complete set alone, …
But again: This bonus is exclusively for those who get themselves ALL three actual volumes of The Cavalli Files – Upsilon, Omicron and now SIGMA as well. So you shouldn't miss this. Smile

The contents of Paolo’s 'SIGMA' are the following:
  • Coinport
  • E-Wave
  • C.K.C. Planet Earth
  • Corinda 2005 Outdone!
  • Any Card, Any Number
  • The E.C.P. Principle
  • Shades Of Mind
  • A Penny For Your Thoughts
  • Beer-It Twice
  • Dove- It Out
  • N.G.R.R.
  • Death Warrant II°
  • W.D.W. Book Test
  • Pun
  • Random Thoughts and Bonus Experiments
    • The Radarama Deck as a Tossed-Out Deck or as Mind-Power Deck
    • Chairvelopes – Alternative Ending
    • Riffletome
    • Con-See-Stency
    • Technicolor Will
    • Psictionary
    • Center Dead
    • Chair Night
    • Extreme Overdrive

You can get 'The Cavalli Files III – SIGMA' again in the Cavalli section of right now.

The price for the printed book is again $ 50 (about € 38.50), shipping incl.


PS: Interested in a description an judgment of SIGMA’s actual contents? Smile
Well, here is what the brilliant Greg Arce wrote about Paolo’s book in 2005:

Coinport – loved the idea. Great mix of ideas and methods.

E-Wave is a great study in the art of equivoque.

C.K.C Planet Earth is another great rendition of the Out of This World premise... something to use in the real world when you want to prove your powers.

E.C.P. Principles is a devastating idea that you can now apply to many other effects. Paolo already supplies two great routines using this principle in Sigma.

Shades of Mind will test your courage in mentalism. Paolo gives you the weapons and how to use them, but you must now go out to the performing world and use these weapons with courage. I like this kind of thinking!

Penny For Your Thoughts is Paolo's new brilliant take and method for a chair prediction. Devious and fun to do!

Beer It Twice is a nice way to start a show or a longer presentation and proves you know your volunteer's choices. Great mix of two methods!

Dove-it Out is a great approach to the Roulette idea. I'm fond of this one because I too worked out a similar principle and I'm glad to see someone else is playing around with it. Of course, I knew Paolo would hit on the idea too because we seem to think alike... maybe we were separated at birth!

N.G.R.R. follows that same route of the Russian Roulette premise and again it follows a path I have tried out myself. This is a dramatic and easy way to show you will face danger, but be aware, it's not for the absentminded performer.

Death Warrant II is a strong routine that uses many principles together to cancel out all the possible solutions. For those that like a bit of the bizarre then this one is for you.

W.D.W. Book test is a new method to do an impromptu book test... anywhere and with any book... all you need is a pen or pencil and you are set to go. This one should be put in everyone's arsenal.

PUN is one of my favorites in this book. I love word association games and so I know I'll put this effect to use almost immediately.

But Paolo does not stop with the above mentioned effects, he continues to give you bits and pieces from other ideas... from a Radar Deck idea to a subtle idea for his Chairvelopes to an idea to use with Maven's Autome to another book test idea to a great verbal misdirection idea to simplify a Technicolor Prediction and then another book test idea that allows for a drawing dupe.

What can I say? Another book from Paolo that is loaded with ideas that no only will you use... you absolutely must use them!

I'm so proud to have been asked to produce the bonus ebook for sigma. Paolo is an incredible thinker and the fact Paralabs are republishing his work into physical books is such a fantastic idea! The next generation of mentalists will be able to enjoy this mans brilliant thinking and it won't become lost in the ether.

A couple of people PM'd me and asked about what was in the bonus ebook well tbh I wanted to keep things under wraps for those who supported this project but what I will say is that there are 3 routines. 2 of them unreleased. One of those is called Kronetik ... A visible PK effect where the hands of a borrowed watch physically move whilst it sits in your hand. Totally impromptu and fooled the hell outta every mentalist I've performed this on in the past 10 years!!
