Despite over four decades of magic and mentalism experience, Rick Maue has always managed to remain a bit elusive...until now! On this DVD set, Rick presents a number of his signature pieces, as well as several unreleased items, with many of the effects coming from his working repertoire.

Mental Deceptions is loaded with strong mentalism for stand-up or close-up performances and remarkably, none of the effects require expensive gimmicks or props - just everyday items such as envelopes, poker chips, paper, playing cards, etc. (It's why Michael Weber dubbed Rick "OfficeMax Maven.")

What's more, no sleight of hand is required. Rick calls it VdM Magic - material that's so technically easy that the Venus De Milo could perform it! In other words, everything is well within the technical reach of every performer.

You'll also be able to step inside the mind of Rick Maue during informative interview segments conducted by magician Francis Menotti. You'll see for yourself why Marc DeSouza once asked Rick, "Why is it that when I see you lecture, I feel like I am watching a mad scientist at work?"

Volume 1 features:

Heads & Tales- Rick's opener...but much more than a simple coin toss. this is the way that Rick has set the tone for his stage show for more than a decade.
Group Dynamic- A versatile routine that plays as strong in a living room as it does in a large theater.
Reverse roulette- Rick's closer for many years, a poison roulette routine with an unusual twist.
The hole card- a simple and quick poker-themed piece for platform or stage.
Mixed Emotions- A strong effect that also teaches a powerful way to read minds from across the room without ever having to touch anything!
Body Language- An anytime/ anywhere chair routine, and everything that you need fits in your pocket (except the chairs, of course).
Focused thoughts/ Dichotomy- A couple of basic card effects that are used to illustrate several versatile, yet simple, techniques.
Fate?- A strong effect involving four audience members and a number of powerful payoffs. One of Rick's most popular creations.
Interviews (with Francis Menotti)
Bonus feature: Seeds- The hand-out force; the classic pass false cut; Ashes from the palm.

Hi Everyone,

Frank from Australia again here giving my humble opinion for ,''Mental Deceptions'' volume 1 by Rick Maue.

I love it when a performer speaks clearly,speaks well and doesn't repeat himself which is what Mr. Maue does on both of his volumes.

Regarding the effects I personally found,''Group Dynamic'',''Reverse Roulette''( away from the usual danger!! but still makes people go - what if;''Mixed Emotions''and of course,''Fate'' to be his very best effects.

Group Dynamic and Fate are easily worth the price of this DVD.
