How is this book? What's the best effect there or your favorite?
I've seen its vote(http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=316524&forum=15), but feel like the number of voters is quite small.

I would like to echo VIEW's sentiments. It is a wonderful book, with some very interesting information on the 'history of' .... as well as some superb routines provided by some of mentalisms greatest thinkers. Highly recommended.

Tom, sadly, seems to have vanished. Hasn't answered an email in maybe 18 months.

I'm in agreement here. In fact I have to be honest and say I haven't really dug into it. I paged through it but wasn't compelled to set aside time to dig deeper, not just yet anyway.

Much appreciated!

Perhaps I'm biased to be fair. I love his academic writing style.

It's just WONDERFUL! Can't recommend highly enough. The information on making your own is worth the price of admission.

I think Thomas Baxter, the author has moved from one end of Canada to another. Or so I hear anyway. He is out West somewhere by all accounts. Probably British Columbia. I also get a feeling, although I may well be wrong, that he is fed up dealing with magicians for the moment and I can well understand why.

As for the book I do own it. I consider it worthwhile. My favourite part of the book is all the historical information compiled by Tom Ransom.

The Café wasn't really worthy of Tom, and it isn't worthy of lots of names who have chosen to stick around. When you've performed as long as he has, I imagine you'll want to spend time pursuing other interests. Glad he gave us the NW Anthology, the OP Project, and Any Card Thought Of.

He also gave us RPS Entity which is what inspired "all the recent work" on Rock Paper Scissors.

I highly recommend this book. I personally love knowing the history of things we as performers take for granted. This book really goes places most compilation books wouldn't go. You really don't need any other writings outside of this in my opinion. In my opinion every mentalist should have this book.

I'm new to NW (not the mechanics but implementing it into my act). Please can you advise where I can purchase this?
