The effects I'm revealing in this book and some of the strongest in all of mental magic. All of these effects can be successfully performed by a complete beginner almost immediately. Please, do yourself justice though, read through the book several times and practice by speaking out loud. If you do this, I promise - you will be baffling your mates and literally be the star attraction of any party of club you go to!
I have written the instructions as concisely as possible. It has taken me a long time to work through countless magic books in order to provide this information - I've done the hard work for you, so the last thing I wanted to do is over complicate things with unnecessary information. For each trick, I have explained the Effect, the Basic Secret and then a Full Methodology which will allow you to amaze whoever you perform on.
Each of the main tricks has a full script you can use when performing. Feel free to change it to suit your needs. The words in (italic brackets) explain what you should be doing whilst reading the script.
The Invisible Touch:
Although Derren Brown did not invent the principle for this effect, you will have seen this perform this trick with 'the twins' and also 'the lap dancers' in his TV show. It is a classic trick of mentalism any completely impromptu. You can do this at any time and I've personally freaked a lot of people out whilst doing this at clubs and parties. If you want an effect to build a reputation on - read on! Basic Effect
You ask 2 friends if they would take part in a psychological test with you. You ask one of them to close their eyes. Whilst their eyes are closed you tap their friend on the hand twice. You then ask the person with their eyes closed to open their eyes and ask them if they felt anything. They will swear that they felt two taps on their hand - even though you were nowhere near them... in fact you could even be stood the other side of the room.
The person with their eyes open will be amazed that their friend felt your touch even though she KNOWS you didn't go near her. The person with their eyes closed will be so positive that she felt 2 solid taps that initially she simply won't believe that you were nowhere near her! When everybody else watching confirms that you indeed did not touch her - the 2 friends, plus everyone else in the room will be amazed!

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.
