Don't be fooled by the cheezy 80's style cover Report this review

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

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..

Disappointed. Couldn't use a thing. Real old school stuff. To each his own. I like Matt Mello's Modern Mentalist much better!

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).
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.
Very good Report this review

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.

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

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
