“Conversations as Mentalism is Mark's latest must-buy release. As well as the clever effects, and probably more importantly, you're going to learn an attitude which can be used to approach performing in all real world situations." -Colin McLeod

"Conversations as Mentalism is a collection of impromptu gems that can be used at the drop of a hat. Just the piece with the invisible dice alone is worth the cost of the entire booklet! With just what you carry in your pockets and the knowledge in this booklet, you will be able to perform a whole host of practical material anywhere." -John Carey

“It is my firm belief that the title of this book should be changed to The Essential Handbook of Impromptu Mentalism. The routines taught are all very simple, direct and deeply fooling. This material should be in the arsenal of every modern mentalist! I give it my highest recommendation."- Michael Murray

Would you like to add some killer mentalism effects that you can perform anytime, anyplace and without any props to your repertoire?

Well, good news! Conversation As Mentalism contains tried and tested material that you can start to use immediately.

The participant’s experience of what occurs during these casual performance pieces is this: during the course of an interesting conversation, things take an odd turn and something strange and completely inexplicable happens.

Maybe you read their mind about a film they’ve seen or a book they’ve read. Maybe it’s a simple verbal game that you ‘hypnotise’ them into being unable to win or perhaps you are able to correctly predict the change in their pocket.

Those effects and more have been designed with one outcome in mind – to amaze whoever you are talking to without the aid of any gadgets, gizmos or gimmicks.

Conversation as . . . disapointment Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 25th, 2019
Generally, I would rather compliment, then complain, but this PDF at $26 is perhaps the worst purchase I've ever made, and certainly my worst purchase in magic . . . so far. (Side note: my sister made a worse purchase, but got a great story when she found an incredible on-line deal on a 6 foot ladder. When it was delivered, it turned out to be 6 inches. Hilarious!)

Anyway, Elsdon's text -- it should be noted somewhere on the site -- is written for someone who already knows the principles (I challenge you to make sense of his reference to a "branching anagram and some simple pumping" if these terms are not already in your repertoire). I decided not to bother trying any of the effects because they seemed rather indifferent and the whole experience put me off. Really, you assume that Penguin is going to deliver some value if they put a $26 price on a PDF, for goodness sake.

Further undermining the sense of value is that all the tricks (or perhaps 9 of the 10) are taken from other sources. They are not original. I give Elsdon lots of credit (and one of the stars in this review) for citing his sources. Yay for acknowledging the work of others!

I do give Elsdon credit as well (and another star) for a great title: Conversation as Mentalism. I loved the idea that this was really going to be about engaging people deeply in a thoughtful way that led to magical experiences, and wish it had taken me there.

Final note, I've only seen volume 1. Perhaps volumes 2-5 will be worth another $104. I suppose I'll never know.

The effects taught are simple, easy, and amusing. The kind of effects that you'll definitely use and enjoy. This is a must buy.

Not a big fan of Mr. E. Not because of his magic but because of his "customer service" on backing up his gimmicks. All great routines in this book but at least explain the money conversion and save us the trouble for us using dollars. Mark also seems a little nebulous on the "seven deadly sins routine. Maybe I am a little harsh after being "screen burned" on two gimmicks but hey, Who would't be?
