Despite the word 'practical', the book contains many tricks that do require you to build special props here and there, This book will be great for serious magicians mostly. If you are looking for simple, almost 'propless' magic tricks that focuses more on language, speech and other things, you should probably look elsewhere.

This is an amazing look at how some "psychic" tricks such as telekinesis, mind-reading, etc. are done.
You can try some yourself... but practice and timing is crucial to make things "smooth".

The book is literally packed with excellent routines and techniques, most of which require little or no sleight of hand skills. Though somewhat dated (you may have a litlle trouble finding some of the materials used) it is chock-full of "how'd he do that" stuff. The variety of material contained is wonderful also. From billets to cards to envelopes to codes to blind-folds to money routines. Just get it! You won't be sorry. I hear that Mark Striving has modernized some of it with a book "Annemann Updated" or something to that effect. I would be interested in that but can't find it

Although dated, this collection of mental effects was and remains one of the best ever written for this subject. (only surpassed by Corrinda's 13 Steps to Mentalism)
Not to be taken lightly, there were performers whose entire acts are condensed on but a few pages contained within.
Not for the young or for the beginner, this book is a requirement for any serious magician's bookshelf or one interested in psychic phenomena.
I bought this book hardbound for many times this price and felt it was one of the best purchases I made in the field

This very popular book shows you how some mentalism tricks are performed through the use of additional hidden objects. Covers mind-reading, spiritual effects, etc... and making them LOOK REAL !! But a couple tricks are sort of outdated because the audience is becoming more demanding and intelligent and may be able to guess what exactly going on. For example, writing words in a special way and by "erasing" part of these words/numbers reveal a specific message.
Overall it is a worthy book considering that it is not expensive, easy-to-understand and the sort of book that the conjurer would not want you to know about.
