Mastering Q&A: Jazz Mentalism (Teleseminar CD) by Bob Cassidy - DVD
Price: $29.97
Out of stock.

This is the third in a three-part series on the Q&A routine, which has long been considered as the most powerful routine a mentalist can do and the "backbone of mentalism," according to Bob Cassidy. The first teleseminar featured the history, foundations, and background of this essential mentalism art. The second featured advanced techniques and additional routines.

Now, Bob Cassidy, arguably the most influential mentalist the last few decades, brings it all together for performers who want to bring their Q&A act to the highest, most professional level. With this material, one will appear to actually read minds and even those in the know will not be able to follow any methods. This is the incredible information that was shared in Cassidy's landmark, exclusive, and highly acclaimed Q&A workshops!

Learn the following techniques of Q&A:

  • the art of answering questions, which is one of the most important and necessary techniques to performing as the answers are the crucial part of the routine!
  • how to integrate cold reading into the answer revelations and make them sound even more incredible!
  • modernized and modified Anderson/Hoy techniques!
  • how to use misdirection and logical disconnects so that even audience members in the know will have a hard time following or determining the methods!
  • Jazz Mentalism, the most powerful Q&A approach! Using this, one can walk into any environment, grab some paper and pencils, and do a complete, convincing, and unforgettable Q&A act!
Your purchase includes the teleseminar notes, the MP3 recording of the teleseminar, and the postnotes.

Further rambling history lesson Report this review

If you like the history lesson approach to learning message reading Q&A where the author drones on and on with rambling stories, you may like this audio CD. The author talks about lots of ideas and approaches without stopping to really explain how to do any of them. A great deal of material quickly covered glossing over the concepts without going into much detail.

I really do not care for this approach to teaching.

If you had a specific home repair you needed to make, and went to the hardware store and the clerk ask you what you needed, then proceeded to take you through the entire store, quickly showing you every nut and bolt and telling you who invented each one and when, would that really help you solve your problem? Or would that just confuse you with a bunch of information?

That's the feeling I got from listing to these CDs. Too much information covered too lightly. Nothing explained or demonstrated in any depth.

After listing to all three CDs in this series I scratched my head and asked, 'Okay, so how do I do Q&A????'

I guess all of the pieces are there. But you have to figure out how to put them together yourself.

Some people might prefer that. But I was looking more for a Q&A act explained in detail, what to do, when to do it, how to do it. I did not get that from this program.

Richard Osterlind has several 'out of the box' Q&A methods (Thought Scan, Vinyl Folder Q&A and Final Answer are three that I know of) which are better suited to my needs.
