David,

You have inspired more than a few (including me) to purchase a copy. Thanks for your thoughtful posts!

Regards,
Mike

When I get to a show early (which is ALL the time...since I am just a wee bit compulsive about not rushing) there's a book on the seat beside me. It's a heavy book. And, once I've triple checked everything and have a few minutes to relax, I open this book and read.

I'm on my third read-through now. This time, I'm going slowly, giving the material time, study and consideration.

Let me go out on a limb and say this: "Fundamentals" is the single best book EVER on the subject of mentalism. I mean it. The blending of brilliant-will-work-in-the-real-world routines and insightful thoughts and advice on how mentalism is to be performed makes it an instant classic.

I wish it had been given a different title because "2" suggests "sequel" or the whole notion that you should read Number 1 first. And, while the first book "The Artful Mentalism of Bob Cassidy" is a widely accepted classic -- "2" eclipses it.

If you don't have this book yet -- if you've been putting off the decision to purchase it -- can I respectfully suggest that you don't delay another second. This isn't just a book. It's a resource, it's a pile of powerful routines it's state of the art thinking from a guy who proves his expertise here every day. It's an investment in getting better at everything you do.

Take it with you on the road...let it keep company with you in those beige hotel rooms. It doesn't matter where you are in your development as a performer, there's great material in here that will make you better.

Fundamentals is a treasure. It's a gift to the community.

Thanks, Bob. You rock.

David

I am only 30 pages in and I already love this book. Bob's thoughts in the beginning are inspiring and the first effect had my head spinning with different ways to use that principle. I especially liked the inclusion of psycho-linguistics to help make effects happen in the moment. I can't wait to get further into this book.

I was going to include psycho ceramics, but I decided against it.

But thank you all for the kind words. I hope you all find the book useful to you on your journeys in mentalism.

I had to use a bit of deception Bob. I ordered your new book through another entertainer's credit card. I do some psychic entertainment but I can't afford to have my spouse do some psycho stuff if she sees my credit card statement. Can't wait to receive it. The lecture was fantastic.

I got this for Christmas. Should I get volume 1 and read it before I start on volume 2 to get the most out of it?

No. The book is not a sequel to Volume 1. In fact, you would probably be better off reading Volume 2 first. (See earlier posts in this thread where this is discussed at length.)

Good thoughts,

Bob

(I'm thinking of calling my next book "Volume 5" just for fun.)

Great. Thank you Mr. C. I guess I really should have read the thread more carefully.

Received the book yesterday. I only had a chance to skim it. This is a beautifully bound book with gloss pages, filled with over 400 pages of excellent commercial material. Looking forward to devouring this book.

LOL Bob. I've been drooling over it for a long time. I put on a bib so I wouldn't ruin the dust cover.

Bobs work and writings are outstanding, I have read his first two books (Art of Mentalism & Artful Mentalism 1)
and currently reading this one.

His writings are essential reading for the serious student of Mentalism.

It's not about tricks as I have heard Bob say. Forget all the one effect videos on the market
and the gizmos, Bobs teachings are the way to go.

And in this volume he gives some great advise for additional reading as well,
it's money well spent. Bob is the master !

Just a note to thank all of those who have purchased the book and have found it valuable. We're currently planning another one to come out, hopefully, by the end of this year.

Good thoughts,

Bob

As I praised Bob up in the 'Penny', I'd still like to add that this book & his Penguin lecture are great.
I'm so glad I bought them!

Bob, can you hint at what might be in the next book?

I'm planning on buying more of your ebooks but I wouldn't want to duplicate something that may end up in your next book.

I have AT LEAST 30 of your products (ebooks, audio seminars, teleseminar notes, book, DVDs).

Thanks,
Mark

Haven't made up my mind yet about the contents of the next book, although I expect it will include material from Dr Crow.
