(This review is for Mystique by Richard Osterlind - Book)
I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this book up, but I enjoy Osterlind's other material so much that I thought I would give it a try. The methods, essays, and thoughts that he has put into such a short book are very, very good and a steal at the price offered here. Seriously, no need to read on - its worth it.
That said, there are a few things I did not like, which I will address first:
* Paperback - should have been in hardback
* Editing - some editing was missed. All minor things, but found a dozen mistakes or so as I read. Takes you out of the flow of reading, but not too much.
* Chapter dividers - the one page chapter dividers seem odd. Filler that's not needed, does not add to design of book in my opinion.
Things I liked:
* Artificial Intelligence - I have been doing a version of this routine for years, but never liked it because it seems so obvious. This version is very good, and solves all of those problems. A great example of how to improve something you already know.
* The advice given in physical misdirection is very, very good. I can't say much without giving it away, but really starts the book off strong with some very good thoughts on misdirection and purposefulness - worth reading even if you don't perform magic at all.
* First Dog - Really good. Simple, but worth the price of the book. Again, a great example of how a seasoned performer thinks.
* Old Brainwave - very good, and true. I have received strong reactions from a very similar routine.
* Miracle Thought Projection - Very, very good with some excellent advice on timing.
* Memorized BreakThru - Love this idea. So simple to memorize with this system, and will serve you well.
One of the best 'value' buys I have ever made. For the routines, thinking, and effects, some of the best money you will spend in magic or mentalism. Highly Recommended.
