Mental Sweets 1

Mental Sweets 1 is a book written for the mentalism community that comprises three chapters:

  • The first chapter is dedicated to four effects that all use billets. Switch aficionados will find there many opportunities to satisfy their curiosity and some interesting variations on famous mentalism routines, such as the Q&A or Fourth Dimensional Telepathy.
  • The second chapter deals with experiments that have nothing to do with billets. This part will cover such concepts as psychological forces, pumping, dual reality, to name a few. The three effects that are fully explained will allow the mentalist to read thoughts that have NOT been written anywhere, and they are based on different principles each time.
  • The last chapter shares some of the principles and ideas that led us to the effects described earlier in the book. For example, the reader will understand why we tend to favor switches over the center tear, or how we design a pumping sequence.

All the effects described in Mental Sweets 1 have been performed many, many times by the authors (Fabien ARCOLE and Eric BERTRAND) in various settings, from one-to-one performances to stage shows for large and paying audiences. This is not « armchair mentalism » but a collection of routines that have been audience-tested.

Perfect-bound paperback, 156 pages printed in full colour, 6×9 inches.
