The Black and White Book by Neale Scryer - Book
Original Ad Copy for The Black Book:
Neal Scryer is the pseudonym of a successful New York mentalist and psychic. He is highly regarded by his peers, and has been described as a "creative genius." Over the years, he has helped many top mentalists develop unique presentations. In this book, he shares many of the ideas that have made him so successful.
These include: 17 ideas using the Psychometry from A to Z principle, Neal's Killer Q & A routine, 5 ideas using the pendulum, 2 effects with business cards, 1 with playing cards, and 1 with Tarot cards, Synchronistic Dreams - you and your client experience the same dream. Ted Karmilovich said this effect was "brilliant."
Paper Bag Psychometry: a bizarre effect using a voodoo doll - that helps his clients, a chapter called "The Real Thing." Neal is a psychic, and in this chapter explains how he does genuine psychometry, helps people meet their spirit guides, answers questions, solves people's problems, uses his guides to help others, and advocates humming. The book also includes a blessing ritual that Neal performs at the end of his private readings.
This book contains all the ideas and secrets that have brought him fame and success as both an entertainer and a psychic reader. None of the effects in this book are hard to do.
Most are impromptu, and use simple props, such as a pendulum, business cards, Tarot cards, and playing cards. Some effects use no props at all. Some of the effects are close-up, but most can be performed for both small and large groups. Neal Scryer is a psychic as well as a psychic entertainer. Consequently, a number of the ideas in this book involve no trickery, as they are "the real thing."

Testimonials:Black and White
"We live in an information age. The problem is there is much information. Much of it is bad and, these days, the trick is to find the right information. If you want to do mentalism at its highest level, pure mentalism that requires almost no props, get the White and Black Book by Neal Scryer and Richard Webster. This dual collection, now in a beautiful hardbound edition, represents material that has already been tested by the masters and is just waiting for your study. I personally don't collect books or props. If I can't use it, I get rid of it. Black and White is material I won't part with. Neither will a slew of other workers. That should tell you something."

"There are only a few "insider" books that I would withhold from the general public. This is one of them. The ideas, effects and strategies contained within the 91 pages of this little tome are priceless. That's a large claim to make, but in this case it's absolutely true.
I have made my living with mentalism for many years and if you're interested in how a clever psychic turns a simple system into what I believe to be millions of dollars, read this book.

I have made my living with mentalism for many years and if you're interested in how a clever psychic turns a simple system into what I believe to be millions of dollars, read this book. I have the pleasure to know "Neal", although it isn't his real name, and he is the Winston Wolfe of the psychic market. He thinks fast and he talks fast, but if you listen, you'll hear the voice of experience. You, gentle reader, don't have to listen because he's written it all down for you to enjoy. I seldom write reviews or endorsements, but this is a book that should be on every mentalist's bookshelf, even for its potential alone!"

"The Practical Psychic's Little Black Book is to a Professional Working Reader what Psychological Subtleties is to a Mentalist"
- Sebastian Black
"This is one of the best books for the reader and mentalist that I have seen in many a year. I use several things from it all the time. Of the many wonderful things in this book is the effect 'Last One Standing' which I do over the phone. Great stuff in this book!,"
- Tony Razzano - past president, PEA
"Richard Webster broke new ground for psychic readers and entertainers with his "A to Z Psychometry" book and it's still hugely valuable today to anyone who gives readings. However, one person took the concept and really ran with it. His pen name is Neal Scryer and he joined forces with Richard to write what I consider to be a "top shelf" book. Reputation-making stuff. After you digest this book you'll NEVER be stuck. It will open up your mind and your spirit to the full potential available to you as a reader. I love everything in the book, from cover to cover... you just KNOW when you are reading "real-world" stuff compared to arm-chair theory. Neal has certainly been there and knows his stuff.
But my favorite concept is a MIRACLE CLASS idea. Use this ONE idea and you'll be a legend. Neal was reluctant to tip the idea on page 53. I can see why. You could start a cult with that one idea that Ted Karmilovich called "brilliant."
Honest-to-God, if Richard had only asked me before he published it I would have forced him to release that ONE IDEA separately for $1000.00. Do it and your sitter will NEVER forget you. Ever.
The back cover sums it up perfect: "The Practical Psychic's Little Black Book" was written for psychics and psychic entertainers. It is not suitable for hobbyists or people who perform only occasionally." I agree, and hope it only gets in the right hands and stays there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
- Stuart Cumberland
"This is fabulous book is a thought provoking read as well as a gold mine chockfull of practical advice for the readers' and Psychic Entertainers. Mr. Scryer and Mr. Webster are exceptionally creative persons, with a long tenure for producing high quality material. This book proves this to be true once again... I highly recommend The Practical Psychic's Little Black Book."

"'The Practical Psychic's Little White Book' is now and has been my own most anticipated release of 2011, and few things have me more excited! Knowing what I do of the contents and the man behind them, this one is a no-brainer. I've long maintained that if you're not actively working with material of Neal's caliber, you're working at a severe disadvantage. Get this book and prosper!"
- Jerome Finley
"Once in a generation, one emerges from the shadows to share the inner-workings of priceless secrets. Neal Scryer is in a caliber all his own. For those that have read his first book, 'The Practical Little Psychic's Black Book', no recommendation is needed... I sincerely suggest to everyone that values "Psychic Entertainment" to get 'The Practical Psychic's Little White Book' before it departs back into the shadows from which it came."

1 of 1 magicians found the following review helpful:
I should first point out that I originally purchased the black and white books separately. Any buyer
should feel lucky as they get both great books in one volume. I am a huge fan of both Scryer and
Richard Webster. For those that already perform readings this book is full of ideas to differentiate
yourself from other readers in your area. For those wishing to learn readings, Scryer and Webster
put forth a methodology that is easy to grasp so you can start giving readings without too much
memorization. While not every concept found within may fit each person's ideologies, the core
concepts will certainly fit everyone willing to give it the proper respect and effort. Great stuff
