A classic of mentalism comes to life!

Annemann's Practical Mental Effects has been a landmark book for magicians and mentalists since its release in 1944. The routines that are contained in its pages have been influencing mystery performers for over 75 years.

This exciting new DVD series explores the work of Annemann and his Jinx contributors in a scholarly way, analyzing not only the presentation of some of the strongest mentalism ever created but also the thinking behind the effects. Richard Osterlind first performs the effects in their original form before an audience of non-magicians and then very nuance is exhaustively explained with the assistance of Jim Sisti.

Volume 1:

  • Magic vs. Mentalism
  • Slate Immortality
  • A Question and the Answer
  • The OM Billet Switching Box
  • Psychic Slate Test
  • Taps
  • Notaria
  • The Word On The Page
Volume 2:
  • Bert Reese Secrets
  • You and Yours - Me and Mine
  • Extra Sensory Perception
  • Prophetic Tissue
  • Ultra Addition
  • Dead
  • Yggdrasil
  • 20th Century Newspaper Test
  • Par-Optic Vision
Volume 3:
  • Mindreading Publicity Effect
  • The Brain Wave Deck
  • Half and Half
  • Two Papers and a Spectator
  • Graphology
  • The Al Baker 3 Billet Trick
  • Triple Coercion
  • Devil Device
Volumes 1, 2 and 3 of Practical Mental Effects has been lauded as the perfect accompaniment to Annemann's age-old classic. On the first three volumes, Richard took effects straight out of the book and used them to completely destroy a modern audience of college students.

On volumes 4, 5 and 6, Richard Osterlind and Jim Sisti return to the same school and do it again, but with many amplified versions of other Practical Mental Effects material. For most of these routines, Richard changed the workings and methods slightly (or sometimes very significantly) to make the effects more direct and streamlined. You will love his thinking!

Additionally, we have added what is possibly the best electronic version of Practical Mental Effects on disc 6. Created specifically for this project, the book was scanned at a high resolution and is entirely searchable. You can open the book on your computer or download a copy to your tablet, smartphone, or e-book reader to enjoy on the go. It's the perfect complement to the material here!

Volume 4:
  • 40,000 Words
  • Number Thot
  • Pseudo-Psychometry
  • Mind or Muscle?
  • A Card to Be Thought About
  • A Torn Letter
Volume 5:
  • Bert Reese Secrets (for Groups)
  • Horrors!
  • Who Killed Mr. X?
  • Cherchez La Lady
  • Between the Lines
  • Ultra Slate Message
Volume 6:
  • Tervil
  • Symmyst
  • Death Flight
  • The Phantom Artist
  • Whim of Tituba
  • BONUS: Annemann's Practical Mental Effects - high-resolution e-book (PDF format)
These six volumes truly offer the definitive work on the material from this classic book. There are routines for any situation whether close-up, parlor or stage and, additionally, you will learn classic principles of mentalism which you can apply to your own, original routines.

Richard Osterlind Annemann's Practical Mental Effects Report this review

This six DVD set is, in a word, historic. Annemann's Practical Mental Effects is one of two books most often recommended to people wanting to learn mentalism. It's been easy to find and read the book, however, seeing these effects demonstrated by a pro, not so easy. Now, anyone wanting to read the foundational book can do so - and see many of the effects demonstrated by a Master of the Art with 40 years experience.

I own most of Richard Osterlind's DVD sets, and had to get this one to make my Osterlind library almost complete. If you are a beginner, just getting started in mentalism, I cannot recommend this DVD set highly enough. An ideal companion to the book. In fact, this set includes a PDF version of the book as a nice bonus. If you are a Richard Osterlind fan, and enjoy his teaching style, you will probably also enjoy this set, as will those interested in mentalism history.

Highly recommended.

As a teacher ,video quality and effects 100% satisfied ..my BIG complain comes as a customer of this product the total set originally cost around 0 even when buying disc individually there around each.. as a profesional entertainer i value the price i pay for the product and invest on it . I feel left down since my investment and collection value came crashing down by offering this set for even on his site , and this is not a product that is been out for many years ,so money wasted is the biggest concern for a product that is really awesome but for those who pay full price is a hard kick to our wallet . Great for those who waited and not that much time for this product to devaluate market wise so fast ... the product is 5 stars .... the value $$$ 1 star for those who collect or invest in great products and item gets devaluated by author or company producing product
