Essential Reading for a Mentalist Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2014
This book is the "Bible" of mentalism. If you aspire to perform this type of magic, this is essential reading. Regardless of what you may have read about the book being dated, it's principles are still used by today's top mentalist's. It is relatively easy to update the effects for today's audiences and fit them to your style of performance. At its current selling price of $25, it is a steal.

This is my go to book when I am stuck. It is not a sit down and read for the afternoon book. For me it has been more of a reference book. When I am stuck on a creation I go to this book for inspiration and ideas. It has helped me many times. And I found a few cool tidbits along the way.
The classic fundementals are all here. So if you are beginning then you want this book.
My only complaint is that the print is very very small. The positive is that left more room for more material !
Very important education Report this review

Just like Practical Mental Effects, the writing in this book is dated, but the concepts can all be modernized and improved upon. The point is to get a solid grounding in the basic ideas of mentalism, and that is what you get with 13 Steps.
Each step offers loads of information on beginning in different facets of mentalism. Some stuff you will never use in a million years, other stuff you will use immediately.
To be honest, I use more tricks from Practical Mental Magic than 13 Steps, but this book taught me more about how mentalism works, which is extremely important if you want to take those skills further.
Great classic work! Report this review

If you're interested at all in doing mentalism, this book is a must-read. Although it's 40+ years old, I watched Criss Angel do a routine straight out of this book in his Vegas stage act, which speaks to the durability of Corinda's ideas.

13 steps is without a doubt one of the most essential books to read if you're serious about mentalism, however I wouldn't recommend this for magicians who are just looking to add a bit of mentalism to their magic routines. The amount of principles and effects you will learn in this book are incredible compared to the price you pay. If you're a mentalist and don't have 13 steps, ADD TO CART!

As with anything you want to do you have to start with a firm foundation. This book will provide you with the foundation needed to build on and increase your mentalism skills. It's way way underpriced and would be a steal at $100. Get it!
