I've been out of the magic for a while, but I recently checked out more videos of Derren Brown - who is absolutely amazing - and I was awed. He's inspired me to try that field of magic, and I was wondering if any of you guys could help me to start off. I'm interested in prop-free (completely) mentalism where it's just about you and the spectator/volunteer. Any books or DVDs that you guys can recommend would be greatly appreciated. I've used the search feature and I've gone "forum-hunting" for magic like this, and all I've come to is Corinda's Steps and DVDs that are not what I'm looking for. Don't get me wrong, I agree that Corinda's Steps is a very imformative and useful book, but I'm looking for something more in depth, that concentrates solely on psychological magic. Things that don't involve peeks, switches, or any other sleight of hand/gimmick, but rather with the brain and psychological techniques.

Thanks,
Royce

Get Paralies by Joshua Quinn. In that book he has an effect called Thought Chunnel where the person thinks of a word and from that word they think of different ones. You then tell them what it is. There is nothing written down and no props; it all happens in their head.

Also, try to find a copy of Banacheck's Psychological Subtleties. In this book he tells you ways to read people's minds without props.
