This book contains concepts and references about what is a Mental Magic Trick, The Rules of Mental Magic, How to Become a Mental Magician and how mental cards, coins or table magic tricks work.
You can read about the mental tricks six categories: foreknowledge, mind control, memory feats, extrasensory perception, prophecy and premonition. According to the author, one of the most important components of a mental trick is the performance style. A good Mentalist Magician is very good at reading others (body language) and knows that the brain uses the body’s ears and eyes to help produce images and he will use this knowledge to make the magic more believable.
On chapter 4th you will read about mental card tricks as the author has included several tricks and how you can perform tricks like Mind Reader, Four jacks, Finders Keepers, Impulsable, Flip the Script, Card Never Changes and some more.
On Chapter 5th, the author will show you 10 mental coin tricks and how do they work. And, on the final chapter you will read about 10 table magic tricks and how do they work.

If my review was helpful to you, would you please vote, yes. I try to do my reviews honest with the pros and cons I can see myself in a product, and with facts that a potential customer might find useful.
Chapter two contains this gem that makes no sense, "The best way to describe mental magic would be to call it a combination of Magic the Gathering and blindfold chess." What? The rest of the chapter gives a brief overview of how Magic the Gathering is played. Umm...ok?
At this point I can't take this book seriously and I start scrolling instead of reading. Using body language and probability, along with educated guesswork, those are more mental tricks but the 5 card example trick provided is drawn out and not very impressive. Some of the little card tricks are doable. Then the book finishes with some coin and table tricks.
Not really what I was expecting or hoping for. You may get a few very basic beginner tricks out of this book if you can understand the language, but nothing better than you would get in a cheap magic kit so start there instead.
Disclosure: I received this product when it was free to download for all buyers. I did not guarantee a positive review and was not compensated for reviewing the product.
"What you need in order to perform this trick is a balloon, a coin, a bottle, and a straw. You take the coin and place it inside the balloon. Take the straw and stretch out the balloon with the coin in it, creating a small hole for the coin to go into on the top of the cup."
That's it, no more direction on the cup when or how you get the coin through the hole. Some of the card tricks are more complete and would be doable with practice. He notes a magician needs keen powers of observation and may be able to identify a birth month by birthstone jewelry and to watch reactions as you talk, is there interest or reaction to a guess you make? Then you can eliminate possibilities.
There are some card and coin tricks with enough description to be able to follow but overall I do not recommend this book as there is much lack of clarity, turns out it was not so much fun and not so instructive. So much for my expectations. You may find it otherwise but I found it disappointing. If you just want a light read for passing the time or learning that magic is illusion, it is fine. Disclaimer: I obtained the kindle version for free in exchange for an honest review.
There is a section of card tricks some of which are pretty good and simple to do, great to add to the collection. The descriptions are not the most detailed, but most of the time you can decipher what he is asking you to do.
Then there is a coin section these are a bit more difficult to decipher, if you have any magic background you can figure it out. Some of the tricks tend to just end abruptly.
The last section has a few more random tricks.
I think the thing that disappoints me the most about this book is the title, it is very misleading. I thought the book was going to be mostly about mentalism like future predictions. It is more a book with a bunch of card and coin tricks. Over all I got a few new simple tricks out of it so in my world anytime you can learn something new it is worth the read. If you are hoping to get mind blowing tricks I didn’t find them here but if you are looking to pick up a few simple tricks to throw at your friends and family its worth the read.
