I've been wanting to get into Mentalism for a LONG time...I've looked around this forum alot and, even though I don't understand alot of what you guys are talking about, I find alot of stuff very interesting. I've realized from the gazillion and one topics of "Hey ... I'm new ... what should I read" posts that I should start with 13 Steps, the apparent "bible" of mentalism. I have two problems and two questions.
First, my local magic shop is either closed down or the guy has been on vacation for quite some time...(I'm assuming the former)
Second, 13 Steps has been OOS forever @ Penguin.
My two questions are...
1. How long does it usually take Penguin to restock this book? I know everyone's after it and it's in high demand, so I'm just wondering how long I'll be waiting for it. I really don't want to buy it off a site like eBay or Amazon b/c I don't really trust either, whereas I've never gone wrong with Penguin.
2. Are there other "bibles" of mentalism besides 13 steps? I've seen Building Blocks by Luke Geramy thrown around along with some Max Maven stuff, my inquiry is are there any other "definitive" works that are recognized such as 13 Steps is..
My apologies for how long this post is. If you're still reading, well, 10 points for you
