Bound to be a classic. Report this review

Face it: Bob Cassidy is a legendary performer. This book, Fundamentals, is not a sequel to VOL. 1. It is it's own work, and is invaluable to those developing a mentalism show. What makes it classic is that you can apply Bob's advice to mentalism or anywhere else. This is an easy read & a gold mine of advice on stagecraft, character development, blocking, audience management & just about any other aspect of performing live. Must read.
Destined to Become a Classic Report this review

The Artful Mentalism of Bob Cassidy VOL. 2 is destined to become a classic in mentalism, right up there with Practical Mental Magic by Theodore Annemann and 13 Steps to Mentalism by Corinda. It contains numerous effects and routines, but it is far more than just a book about effects. It covers presentation, staging, psychology and more. Bob Cassidy's knowledge of his craft is encyclopedic and his reputation is well deserved. Plus, Bob share's his real working material and the way he thinks. It is a must read for anyone serious about performing mentalism. Is it worth $65? No, it is a priceless beautifully bound modern day classic. Bob could have priced it at $100's and it still would be worth every penny. I highly recommend you get it and read it. I think it is possible to create a complete mentalism act using just the material from this book.
Great Book Report this review

I bought this book about a year ago and just happened to see how few reviews it had by chance, so I felt I should review it as well.
This is an amazing book, which covers some amazing effects very thoroughly. There are quite a few effects in the book and they all seem great - nothing seems purely like filler.
(Also Mr. Cassidy always keeps it entertaining to read!)
Only downside: Spelling errors. There should never be errors in spelling in a book and in this one there is a few. One can always understand what is meant, so they pose no real issue.
Amazing book - buy it! Also if you buy his (in my opinion INCREDIBLE) lecture with this you are standing with an entire (great) act.

This book is designed to set you out on your path in mentalism on the right foot, and it does so with eloquently. There is some really strong material in here, the mentalism effects and routines are exceptional, however, even more importantly, there is powerful theory and applications of Cassidy's personal system of making mentalism look real. Its been said already but I'll say it again, this book really is an instant classic.

Bob has done it again! His way of thinking and explanation great as always. In this book Mr. Cassidy starts with basics and then goes to the more advance stuff showing us why he is one of the bests and most respected performers in our art. To all those who think that they need to read vol 1 first, well... good news. You don't need Vol. 1 to understand vol 2 and actually you could benefit from reading this book (vol 2) first. Won't say why, because I don't want to spoil the secret, although "Fundamentas" is quite self-explanatory!
