"I've done it literally thousands of times. I'm going to teach you every little detail about how to do it correctly" -Richard Osterlind

For over 40 years, Richard Osterlind has been pioneering new ways to read minds, hypnotize, bend metal and more. He's considered one of the living legends of mentalism.

Aimed at serious students of the art, Osterlind's 13 Steps is a MODERN look at the fundamentals of mentalism based on Richard's lifetime of experience. It has some obvious similarities to the classic text, Corinda's 13 Steps, but is an entirely independent course based on Richard's own experience.

PROFESSIONALS: If you perform mentalism professionally, this is a must-have. If you wanted to introduce mind-reading into your act, there's no better way. Osterlind is a pro's pro.

Good Information, Truly just an intro Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2015
This looks to be a very exciting series. It's free so I really can't complain. Little here is new though it's the best teaching he's done on video of his beliefs surrounding the performance of mentalism. About half of this video is an introduction (sales pitch? which is totally fine) to the upcoming volumes of this exciting series. The second half is Richard sharing his basic philosophy surrounding the performance of mentalism. While everything is subjective, his advice is obviously proven through years of experience and it's hard not to understand and at least partially (or in my case just about completely) agree with his view on how to approach the art and performance of mentalism. Great release Penguin!

stage Routines by Osterlind Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2015
This was a great presentation. He has done a masterful presentation of two of his all time favorites and they are terrific routines! The details are of course the important part and he has addressed them with care and experience.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 21st, 2015
Wow! What a great series! Osterlind is a fantastic teacher. This is totally worth your while to check this out. My only criticism in this lesson was that I couldn't quite clearly see what was being written on the billets. However, Osterlind's instructions were so clear that it wasn't too much of a hindrance in learning these moves. And because of that, this gets my highest rating. Five stars!

Product Specific Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2015
I enjoyed the presentation and the routines and tips are great. Unfortunately the focus of it was showing the superiority of his produced steel blindfold. I would have rated it higher if he had showed more blindfold usage for the rest of us who don't own his product. Still worth the price for the routines but it felt like an infomercial.

Informative, a bit longwinded and some useful stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 20th, 2015
I use two types of blindfolds in some of my routines. Unfortunately, while they get a brief mention in this lecture, there is little in the way of expanding on my current use of them. It was interesting to know how Osterlind's blindfold works. It is by far the most spectator proof on the market and there are some useful tips here but these take up very little of the lecture. Instead you get a lot about how he came up with the concept and design for his blindfold. I wasn't particularly interested in this and it gave the lecture a feel that it was an advert for the gimmick rather than a lecture on techniques and routines. Osterlind does disclose a method for an impromptu blindfold that can be used without buying anything which I may use if the occasion permits. I will also utilise the pointing finger part of his routine and possibly find some plasters to put over my eyes as well. Overall, I was hoping for more ideas to add to my routine.

Proven Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2015
I actually own Richard's Stainless Steel Blindfold as demonstrated here and can personally vouch for it. I tested it on someone who knew how a standard blindfold can be used and had that person inspect the steel blindfold before and after I put it on and as close as they wanted when it was on my face. Richard's blindfold has not been challenged since.
As in the case in most of Richard's videos, he provides alternatives to the quality props he has on the market. I find that classy.
Did I mention he's the greatest teacher in the field of mentalism?

Another Masterpice. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 4th, 2015
Osterlind never disappoints. He is a gifted teacher, performer and presenter. This Volume 5 is no exception.

Thank you, Mr. Osterlind for another impressive presentation covering both the effect, as well as providing historical content and crediting those whose works inspire us to this day.

Sound Advice from a Master Mentalist Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2015
In my opinion, Richard Osterlind is one of the greatest mentalist's of all time. I have purchased almost all of his DVD's and many of his original effects. I consider his material to be A+. He is also a gifted teacher and comes across as genuinely caring. He has offered "Osterlind's 13 Steps Volume 1: Approach to Mentalism" as a gift and I urge you to accept it. He teaches the approach he uses to perform mentalism, which he acquired over a lifetime of study and performances. The material in the first volume is solid gold.

Osterlind's approach Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2015
The more I see of Mr. Osterlind, the more respect I have for him, for doing things the way that he does it. I disagree with him on a few things, but that is just due to my personal character when I perform. Osterlind has thought out the nuances of everything he does, and presents it with the utmost care. I look forward to seeing more from him in the future.
