From the mind of one of Mentalism's rising stars comes an important book of practical, simple and direct mentalism.

Why should you be interested in this book? Because it features powerful, entertaining close-up mentalism that has been sharpened to a razor's edge by constant use in the real world. Looch only performs direct, uncluttered effects that are guaranteed to astound an audience. Overcoming one of the problems with a lot of mentalism material, Looch has devised clever ways of retaining the element of surprise in his work, which elevates the material, even standard plots, to new levels of astonishment.

If you've ever wished that you had available effects that were more visual, presentations that were more engaging and methods that were more practical, then this book will delight you.

Design duplications, photographic-memory stunts, predictions, impossible co-incidences, ESP tests and psychic control are all given the Looch treatment and prove fertile ground for his beguiling presentations.

He even has a routine that will let you fake Superman's most well-known powers!

In all, there are over a dozen complete 'Simple and Direct' routines, plus three bonus effects, along with Looch's thinking on his approach to working with billets, books, playing cards and other props in a mentalism context.

The clarity of these performance pieces allows the mentalist to concentrate on the essence of each effect, communicating to the spectators a believable yet utterly incredible premise that they will be talking about long after the performance is over. If you want strong, contemporary material that will leave a lasting impression on your audiences, then this is it.

Spelling aside this book contains some wonderful material. The tricks are very well thought out and build to a strong and logical climax. I think this is very much a case of classic mentalism methods brought up to date with some clever subtleties. Great read!

This is now a classic of mentalism. Looch is nonchalant and supplies an extraordinary range of material in this book that plays so strong. His approach is make every thing look innocent and then fry your mind with hard hitting mentalism. I have seen him perform several times now in the UK and shared the stage with him a few years ago. His style is great and the material in this book is some of his best. I can highly recommend this book.
