Awesome! Report this review

Pre-thoughts is a fantastic mentalism booklet from Banachek. For just 10 bucks, you get an entire mentalism set that contains some awesome effects. But you not only get the “how-to’s” of the effects, you get Banachek’s entire script and presentation surrounding them. My favorite routines in this booklet include:

1. Be Seated
An awesome prediction effect using four chairs. I have used this on stage and it’s a great piece of mentalism. Essentially, you are able to predict which chair will be left empty by the spectators. They have a free choice of which seat to sit in and they can change their mind at any point. A volunteer has been holding your prediction the entire time, and at no point do you go near the prediction or switch it in any way.

2. Add a number
This is an awesome add a number effect. Banachek teaches you how to make your own add a number pad without have to buy one. I have used this on stage as well, and it works really well.

Oh my God!!! These are the words that first left my mouth after reading this booklet. The routines are priceless, his thoughts and ideas priceless, his insights into the way he thinks and why, priceless. This booklet is invaluable to anybody. Don't get me wrong, I know that I'm calling it a booklet, it's 21 pages long, but the pages are (I think) around A4 size. There are illustrations, as well. This booklet is great, and the icing on the cake is

MY COPY OF THIS BOOKLET HAS BEEN SIGNED BY BANACHEK!!!

That's right, on the first page it says "In Thoughts Banachek"...

Wacked!!!!

‘Pre-Thoughts’ has several techniques that pay for the book many times the already low price. As you read on past the first two pages you realize you have just received an actual show that you can market and perform.

I am a beginner mentalist and have purchased a lot of products to get me started, and this was one of the best. The routine is so simple but the effects are killer and the reactions are priceless.

Cheers, Penguin, you are the best!!!

my first mentalism show was ripped straight from these pages and played very well for everybody in the audience. i still have people requesting items from this show on a regular basis. seriously this will pay for itself after the first performance, and only minimum practice is involved!! you cant beat it!

A full act. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
A full mentalism act written by the very clever Banachek...why wouldn't you want to get this?

Even if you don't use the whole act theres plenty of tips and small tricks in the act which are worth learning about and even using.

Must have for mentalists. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Thinking of trying out mentalism? Then this is a must have. I used part of this routine as part of my act for about a year on stage. I've moved on since, but when I was a budding mentalist, this proved to be an invaluable resource. The material is very simple and Steve gives great pointers on how to make the presentation great. He actually provides the entire script if you need one. I've personally never used his script (doesn't match my style, at all) but it is still a good one. Highly recommended and a great bargain!
