First of all this is not a book. This is a tiny pamphlet with 9 effects that are ALL either completely transparent, pathetically anticlimactic, or unwieldy and therefore unusable.

I love prop-less mentalism, and I love to be able to perform things at the drop of a hat or in conversation. But sadly I found nothing in this little brochure that is worth using.

Maybe someone out there could make it work, but I really don't think that I can or want to.

You know how in books the author describes the effect, and you are blown away by how impossible it is? And then they reveal the method and its exciting. With this book, the description of the effect alone was enough to give away the method.

I read the description of "62 pence", and "All change" out loud to my twelve year old brother, who has no background in magic or mentalism and he promptly said "Well that's dumb" and proceeded to explain the method perfectly.

Save your money.

Mark Elsdon is wonderful performer and and even better thinker. He shares some great effects in this booklet. I can hardly wait for volume 2. These are all effects you can perform anytime, anywhere as no props are used.

If you are looking for some truly impromptu effects, get this booklet, It's GREAT! I also suggest getting Marks Live lecture only available here on Penguin, It's priceless. Get this one, it's a very worthwhile investment.
