by Kaufman, Hobbs, and Racherbaumer
Richard Kaufman also sent along the second issue of The Looking Glass, and it is terrific. Material from Alex Elmsley (an off beat method for discerning three selected cards), Ryu Susato (an ingenious dollar bill penetration), John Bannon (a fine variation of "Henry Christ's Ace Trick"), Martin Gardner (an odd production of a finger ring), Lennart Green, David Gripenwaldt, and Bill Goodwin. The Goodwin item is probably worth the price of admission. Jon Racherbaumer has a wonderfully nostalgic article about Derek Dingle, Larry Jennings, and Martin Nash; and if you haven't been privy to all the buzz about the recent discovery of Fred Braue's daughter, you can read about it here.
If you were undecided about subscribing to this magazine, this issue should push you over the edge. Highly recommended.

Today I'm going to teach you a fundamental Mentalism technique known as 'cold reading'. Cold reading is a technique employed by mentalists and charlatans and by charlatan I refer to psychics, mediums, fortune tellers or anyone that claims false abilities that is used to give the illusion that the person has some form of super natural power.
