Excellent Supplement Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 29th, 2010
This is an excellent supplement to the book - I would recommend getting both. Then you could read each chapter then watch the corresponding section on the DVD. The DVDs update the information in the book. I can see that I will be spending allot of time with this series and making it a priority for 2011. If you are looking just for effects there are over 70 on this series - but this allot more then just a DVD of tricks - this is the college course in Mentalism and will get on a solid foundation.

In my opinion you can't go wrong with 13steps its the very
first book to get and most any successful mentalist will
tell you that. Now to the DVD's Richard Osterlind is truly
one the Most Brilliant minds is the art of mentalism. what
you have the DvD's is his take on some the effects you find
in the Book 13steps to Mentalism reworked to fit the Present
times.Meaning the effects in Tony Corindas 13steps where written about 50 or so years ago but that does not mean you can't make them work in the present time you just need to use
a bit of creativity.
The perfect way to assist the Book Report this review

The DVD set has really helped me speed up the learning process for the book, and showed me the way presentations of the effects are done, as well as introduced me to Richard Osterland, who has some amazing insight and concepts of being a Mentalist himself. It is a bit pricey, but if you can afford it, it is well worth the money.
great! Report this review

Outstanding Report this review

About 20 years ago I went to see Max Maven live. It was mind-blowing. After the show I asked Max how I could learn to do what he does, and he told me to get the books 13 Steps to Mentalism by Corninda and Annemann's Practical Mental Effects. When I got the books, I almost immediately disregarded them as being old and 'outdated', thinking Max had tricked me.
Little did I know.
As it turns out, the principles in these 'old' books provide the core concepts and foundational principles for almost all mentalism performed today. It's true there is a never-ending stream of innovation, clever new twists and creative application by contemporary performers, but most of the effects are still achieved by the principles taught in 13 Steps to Mentalism and Annemann's Practical Mental Effects.
In the incredible DVD set, Richard Osterlind has ingeniously taken many of the core principles Corninda taught, updated them, and brought them to life.
If you want to learn how to become a mentalist, and want to gain a solid understanding of mentalism's key principles and methods, studying this 6 DVD set is one of the best possible places to start.

When I got the book 6 years ago I was very dissapointed because of how outdated it was. Boy did this dvd set compensate for it.
- I should have got this dvd set 4 years ago. If you are looking to just learn a few tricks for your company picnick or Christmas party. This dvd set is not for you.
-This dvd set is for the working professional who is using mentalism to suppliment thier income. What you see is what you get.
- Ive bought dvd sets in the past that were let downs & even held back tutorials on the really good stuff ( Mr. Spellman). You won't have any of that here.
- Don't let the price discourage you, its well worth the price of admition.

Firstly, I was enormously impressed by the speedy delivery of this DVD set, my first purchase from Penguin Magic. You can only imagine my further delight as I ploughed through these discs watching Richard blow half a century of dust from this essential book, bringing the subject matter to life in a highly entertaining way. If you are a budding mentalist, you could do a lot worse than buy the book and DVD set. Then you can work through both, step by step. Richard Osterlind has devoted a sizeable chunk of his life into making Corrinda's impressive effects more accessible to the student, and I am sure that if you put in a fraction of this effort into absorbing what he says, and listen to the explanations and interviews carefully, you will be amply rewarded.
Absorbing and very helpful. Report this review

If you have experienced any difficulty visualising or interpreting the ideas presented in the pages of this essential classic, then seriously consider treating yourself to this DVD set. Devoting a considerable portion of his life to this volume, Richard Osterlind has worked hard and blown away half a century of dust from these great effects,showing how with a bit of tweaking and imagination, you can extract the gold that lies therein. And it's a rich seam! n.b.There are also absorbing discussions between the two presenters. The perfect companion to a must-have book.
PS Thanks for the lightening fast delivery - outstanding!
