    Don't be fooled by the cheezy 80's style cover Report this review
    Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 29th, 2011
    Don't be fooled by the cheezy 80's style cover this is a very good dvd.
    Likes : The tricks definately pack small and hit big, theres not a weak one in the bunch. Its definatly as good as what I anticipated aswell as fairly priced.
    Dislikes: Cassidy humor is borderline vulgar and somewhat rude. A good mentalist doesn't need sexual inuendows to get over with his audience. His sense of humor won't fit most performers.
    Footage is poor quality, however one must understand this was transferred from VHS.
    Explanations could have been a little more thourogh. You will definatley have to watch the explanations more than once. He completley lost me on the "Card Memory" explanation.
    Overall, I would definatly co-sign for this dvd. If you can't add atleast one of these in your arsinal, theres something wrong with you.

    Some good stuff here Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2011
    soI think it's necessary for anyone studying Mentalism to give some time to Bob Cassidy...to both learn what to do and what NOT to do...
    If you can let yourself get past the fact that this footage is antiquated & that Cassidy is a MAJOR ARROGANT A**HOLE then you can find some quality material here and it's worth the investment...you will find 2 excellent billet routines that are absolutely indispensable...& you will learn a valuable lesson in performance art...how you should NEVER treat an audience...I am baffled as to how this guy ever got booked..

    Best Bang for the Buck Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 16th, 2015
    This was the first formal mentalism lecture I ever saw and I think it is the perfect starting point for anyone considering a pursuit of the art.

    Mr. Cassidy is one of mentalism's living legends and rightly so. Here he performs some of his best known routines, including Name/Place and his take on Fourth Dimensional Telepathy (both are both killer).

    Highly recommended!

    Valuable lesson in structure Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 11th, 2015
    I think the most valuable thing I learned from this DVD are ways to structure a routine such that it makes it nearly impossible for the audience to backtrack and reconstruct how the effects were done. Very deceptive and mind boggling stuff.
    As to his style and interaction with the audience, it's unfortunate that nowhere on the DVD is it conveyed that the most rude comments he made were jokes directed at fellow performers in the audience that he knew personally that were attending the event. It gives the impression that he pushes it to that extreme with all audience members, which is not the case.

    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 14th, 2014
    I loved this product. If you are good with misdirection and are confident this is right for you. Plus many of the tricks don't require many materials. Overall a very useful product.

    Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 6th, 2013
    Bob Cassidy tips the real work: the techniques used by performers world-wide to earn a 6 figure income while entertaining audiences.

    A live performance shows you how it's all brought together.

    Only two good ones, but good for the price Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 15th, 2011
    Unless you are one of very few people who think card magic has a place in mentalism, there are only really two effects on the DVD. However, they are two very good effects. The subtleties are well taught and the routines are intelligently structured.

    A most have in your Video Lybrary Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 24th, 2011
    Bob Cassidy is indeed one the most Brilliant performers in Mentalism. This video Contains alot of useful techniques
    and effects. in my opinion what some don't understand is
    that in Mentalism you don't think like a Magician you think like a mentalist. I think that is why most people find his
    performances not to there likings. for me this is a great
    DVD and in my opinion

    some great mentalism routines Report this review
    Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 6th, 2010
    I'm new to mentalism and enjoyed the routines included in this dvd. The recording quality isnt the best (?converted from old video) but the routines and discussion about the routines is what your after and is quite effective. setup for 4dimensional is little tricky and could be explained a little clearer - but skip back over the dvd a couple times and becomes easier. I would recommend it if your interested in doing some mentalism in your routine
