Mentalism is perhaps the most challenging form of mystery entertainment. Your premise must be sound, your process streamlined, and your presentation flawless.

Learning to entertain with mentalism helps in all other aspects of our art. In this lesson, you'll learn how to connect with your audience on a whole new level.

I begin with a simple, yet clever, method from Richard Himber that I further disguise allowing you to duplicate a magazine page with artistic precision.

Then, I give you a modern twist on an impossible addition prediction with a calculated method (hiding in plain sight) that always gives you the result you desire.

There's even a variation for a do-it-yourself approach, but be warned, you will have to do the math. I suggest a device you probably haven't seen in a long time.

Next, I teach you how to find hidden money, or play a blind game of three-card-monte where you can name the money card without ever having seen it.

And, for the first time ever, I share my completely impromptu way to separate the good from the bad, know who wrote what, and even exactly what they wrote.

Plus, I go the distance, taking one lucky person for a ride to an isolated location, where I read the minds of five helpers still on-stage back at the theater.

You'll also learn a very direct way to predict many random choices made by your audience, how to influence the audience to hit a hidden target date, and how to make an imaginary journey become suddenly real, complete with a souvenir postcard. And I finish this lesson with a drawing duplication as direct as it gets.

There's a lot to learn here, and I predict you'll be pleasantly surprised how well these updated presentations play for a modern audience.

Money well spent Report this review

After purchasing this download I have to rate it as the top of all downloads I have gotten from Penguin! Just watching Dan Harlan perform these effects is alone worth the purchase price, but the fact that he also gives very detailed instructions how to perform each one is fantastic!!!! This was the first of his Tarbell lessons I have purchased, but it certainly will not be the last.

More clever thinking Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 5th, 2020
It's becoming repetitive to say that Dan always gives you excellent spins and takes on classic ideas. And this one is no different than the other courses.

Loved some of his subtleties for the math related effects and the way he has structured the Living & Dead tests.

There's a monster routine that involves remote viewing that someone could use for a TV appearance. It would take some work, but it's very impressive.

And he gave me something to think about in how he handles the Yogi Prediction.

Cool stuff!

Dan Harlan is not only a master magician but a great teacher as well. Here he teaches you stuff that can be performed in a variety of settings - from close-up to stage! Considering the price, it is a steal deal. Great work, Penguin Magic.

Educational, entertaining, a great value Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2016
Dan Harlan is such an amiable, non-assuming nice guy--with an infectious laugh--that he makes this stuff seem really easy, like he's hardly even trying. But behind that veneer, he's one of the best. He has a great mind for technique, subtlety, and nuance, one that can even improve upon the great Tarbell canon. The two Tarbell 52 lectures are incredible values for someone just starting out in mentalism. Where are you going to get just south of nine hours of material for about $40? And there are some nice ideas for more experienced folks too.

There are so many excellent beginner/fundamental videos for mentalists that it is hard to know where to begin. But you can't go wrong with reliable Dan, who personifies the platinum standard for creativity and instruction and has a great sense of humor too. These lectures should be Penguin best sellers for sure.
