Mentalism from Copenhagen - New Routines with Classic Ideas by Dennis Hermanzo. This is a book several years in the making. The concepts are clear, concise and easy to execute.
If you are not familiar with Dennis, do not let this deter you. Dennis is a very well studied, and honed performer. In his own words:"There are 19 effects in the book! (197 pages) Every effect in this book has been performed many times in real situations, except one! Using classic principles is why they work. I have learned from the best, Bob Cassidy, Richard Osterlind and Banachek. Their work inspired my life and set a blueprint for my years in this wonderful world of Mentalism."
Everything in this book is based on classic principles!
No effects rely on pre-show work!
No effects rely on electronics!
No effects rely on stooges!
Clean, crisp, classic mentalism - the type used by real workers who make their living and reputations due to the fact they know when you are on the front line you need sure-fire consistency.
