Michel Weber is the author.
Unfortunately I don't have the books. The content of each volume seems to be pretty good though.

The problem is that the author didn't ask the originals authors the permission to use the articles.
It's an articles compilation of the magazine Exortisma.

If any publisher read this post: translate it to english. I think many mentalists/magicians would buy it.

Is it this Michel Weber who´s the author?

Here is the translation. There is some thing that I had some hard time to translate but I hope it all makes sense.

"In this encyclopedia, you’ll find all that you always wanted to know about mentalism. Once you’ll get your hand on the knowledge included there, you’ll be able to build your own professional act and impress even the more skeptics. In this work, all the style are covered: stage, close-up, card mentalism, the living room, the natural brain possiblities and even more, each as mysterious as the other.
