“Ian Rowland has got his own franchise on modern, sophisticated mental magic. By combining seeming miracles with blistering honesty, his results are unexpected and fascinating. Best of all, he's smart, and he treats his audience as if they're smart, too.” –Jim Steinmeyer
“Ian's been a good friend for about ten years. He poses as a cynic but alas, that heart of gold shows through in spite of his best efforts to the contrary. His work is extremely subtle and ingenious; I'm so glad he's on the side of the good guys.” –Teller (of Penn & Teller)
“What impresses me most about Ian is his ability to really digest a subject, dissect it into very simple straightforward rules, and then again do the reverse so when he performs, his presentations seem flawless and direct yet logical. I truly believe that Ian's book on coldreading is the best teaching tool out there. When you see Ian perform coldreading, he makes it all looks so natural. Ian can't be explained in a few sentences, he is just way too complex. But his manner can: Ian is a gentleman's gentleman.” –Banachek
“Anyone who has seen Ian perform knows how charming and smart he is! But what I really enjoy even more is Ian's lectures and his writing. Ian's creativity inspires me to become a more thoughtful performer.” -Jeff McBride
“Ian Rowland always surprises me with his material, presentations, and writings. He loves sharing his talents with people, and this is evident in his expert performances.” –Joshua Jay
“The breadth and depth of Ian's knowledge of all facets of magic is remarkable, and his unique presentations are riveting and memorable. When he reads the minds of people he never met, telling them in detail their fears, aspirations and personal information, you know you are in the presence of either a divine or a devil. He is my favorite columnist, and his magic and mentalism performances are always both charming and astonishing." –Barrie Richardson
“Ian Rowland one of those rare people who has a lot of amazing stuff in his head. He's also the communicator's communicator, so when he chooses to share some of that stuff, I, for one, pay attention." –David Regal
“Ian Rowland constantly surprises me with both the breadth of his knowledge and depth of his creativity. No matter your areas of interest in the world of magic and mentalism, there are great things Ian can teach you.” -John Lovick
“As soon as I get it each issue of MAGIC magazine, I turn right to Ian Rowland's column. Not because I need new routines for my mentalism act (I don't have one) but because I know I'm going to laugh out loud at how clever both the writing and the trick are going to be. Even if this card guy will never use it, it's always great to learn something smart from someone smart.” -Jon Armstrong
“Ian Rowland is unique in that he not only knows how the flim-flam is done, he also does it very well, himself. I suspect that it's his constant appearance before audiences all over the world, that hones his skill and knowledge of this most complicated and subtle art. Rowland has no peer in what he does. I'm not often in awe of a friend; I make an exception in this case...” -James Randi
“If a Ph.D. degree is ever offered for mentalism, Ian Rowland will be invited to join the faculty.” -Doug Dyment
“With my considerable interest in the world of cheats and con men it is fairly obvious that Ian and I would become friends! Not because he's a cheat or lowlife but because his knowledge of specialized areas of deceit such as spiritualism are really second to none. His knowledge is always astonishing and he's a great guy to hang out with!” -Simon Lovell
“Of all the people I have met in mentalism, Ian is in my opinion one of the finest thinkers. His attention to detail is always staggering. There is a phrase I have often heard that magicians/mentalists stop thinking too soon. Well this simply does not apply to Ian... he never stops thinking!” -Marc Paul
“Ian has no wish or need to be placed on a pedestal but he remains something of a mentalist hero to myself and Kevin Sheldrake at Head Hacking. In all my dealings with Ian he has communicated with total clarity and professionalism. When he speaks I listen. I suggest you do the same.” -Anthony Jacquin, Head Hacking
“I've met Ian Rowland, seen him perform formally and informally, and everything I've read in the fantastic quotes about him is true. Most of all though, I'm thankful and proud that I can call him my friend.” –Allen Gittelson
Ian Rowland is a mentalist, magician, entertainer, writer, speaker, photographer, musician, poet and a recreational mathematician. He ravels all over the world, mesmerizing audiences with his subtle yet commanding performances.

Ian Rowland Lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 9th, 2013
Well, Let me say that I gave this five stars only because that is how high Penguin allowed me to go. I am a very critical guy and am not impressed easily. I have been around the block a few times. But I must say that Ian not only impressed me but actually blew me away. His creativity, mixed with his wit and charm make this lecture a must have. Really! I rarely say that in a review, but it is really true here, in my opinion. Superb mentalism and toward the end, a few card effects. I really don't like cards, but these really are excellent and I enjoyed the, very much, especially the poker deal. Incredible. Read the list of the contents of the lecture. Everything on there is a gem! (No, I am not on the payroll of Penguin!) I really found this 3 hour lecture worth much more than the price charged.
One of the best! Report this review

Ian came out and was funny and amazing. His routines blew me away and then I was shocked to find how easy the methods are.
He confirmed what many of us know: killer mentalism doesn't have to rely on complicated methods.
HIs humor and magical talented are like watching Monty Python crossed with Michael Weber!
Through the filter of a pro Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 6th, 2013
I will recommend this lecture to anyone. Whether you are a pro or not, whether you make money out of magic and mentalism or not, you will gain some excellent material and insight from this lecture.
What I enjoyed most was not only the actual material, but the filter through which the effects were considered and presented. Enormously simply methods built with powerful presentational points sets these aside.
Ian is extremely enjoyable to watch and the 3 hours flew by. He has a wonderful sense of humour, fresh ideas and material that you will not have learned anywhere else.
Don't think twice about getting this lecture, you wouldn't regret it.
Great lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 21st, 2013
I am doing mentalism shows for the past 25 years.
I use many of Ian's ideas in my shows for the corporate world.
I already took 2 new ideas from this lecture.
Thanks for sharing so much.
Entertaining, but Mentalism was Questionable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 24th, 2013
Ian Rowland is a great entertainer and his sense of humor made the lecture fun. The card tricks were good. However, the majority of his mentalism tricks use some degree of stooging or stalking (buy if you want to find out the unique ways he does it) which are both highly questionable methods. Yes, Ian makes the point that you won't get caught if you use these methods, but doesn't that ruin the integrity of your tricks? If you're not willing to cross that ethical line, then do not buy. If you are, than this is for you. I personally have used these tricks and their effects are powerful, but it seems unfair to sell this lecture without the disclaimer I have provided above.

Greatest lecture ever! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 4th, 2013
Not only was it the greatest single magic lecture ever presented by anyone, anywhere, but Penguin may as well just stop doing lectures in the future because nothing will ever top it, unless, of course, Ian does another one.
Superb lecture. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 4th, 2013
There is so much in this over three hour long lecture that it will be something you'll find yourself returning to time and time again.
The routines are all great but it's the other things that Ian talks about that make this lecture so valuable for me. All of the ideas, tips, insights and background to what he does are shared so honestly that even if there's something you might not want to perform yourself directly from this, there'll be a seed of an idea planted for you to develop yourself or a different way of looking at things that will really strengthen any mentalism or magic that you perform.
Having known Ian for his mentalism work and seen him perform a few years ago at the Blackpool convention, this was what I bought the lecture for. I thought the card stuff would just be a nice little bonus. I was wrong. The card section contains very strong effects and techniques and it's the first time I've ever wanted to sit and learn a colour change that itself was part of a bigger routine! Very visual but again, it's the concept, approach and thinking behind the effects that is golden.
Ian is a great teacher and there's plenty of laughter here. Being in the UK, there aren't many things that stream on the internet that I'll sit up till gone 3 in the morning to watch. This was one of them and I'm so glad that I did.
Incredible opportunity Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 5th, 2013
Ever since Penguin announced Ian would be doing a lecture as part of its LIVE series, I was excited. I live in a rural county in Ohio, and I never thought I would get the opportunity to attend a lecture by Ian Rowland.
What I liked about the lecture is how he demonstrated and taught mentalism and card magic. That's right, mentalism and cards. I am so tired of hearing magic and mentalism do not mix.
What I appreciate about Ian's work is how he takes effects we already know and makes them more dramatic or takes them in a different direction that gives it a whole new feel. His Mind Wave, for example, is similar to Alain Nu's Nu Wave, which I learned more than a decade ago. However, with one slight change (perhaps John Guastaferro would say it is a One Degree change), Ian turns it major miracle.
Ian teaches a lateral color change in Las Vegas Cut, and it is the most beautiful change I have ever seen.
His effect Something Inside, which he says he only does one-on-one, is a wonderful way to teach a lesson about trusting your instincts or intuition. I think it would be good for a parlor show and teach a wonderful lesson.
Congrats to Ian and to Penguin Magic for making these lectures available to us.
