The first volume of THE ARTFUL MENTALISM OF BOB CASSIDY has
already been acclaimed as one of the best books on mentalism
ever written! In this follow-up second volume, Bob Cassidy
has collected ten more of his e-books and created yet
another must-have masterclass in mentalism! Included in this
volume of over 400 pages are dozens of practical and
powerful effects, three complete acts (including Bob's
incredible 21st Century Q&A act), invaluable performance
tips, and futher examinations of Cassidy's classic routines!
It's kind of hard to be objective about this since I edited
the book and wrote the forward for it, too. This contains
ten of Bob's e-books, most of which were published about ten
years ago: FUNDAMENTALS, 21ST CENTURY Q&A, ONE MAN BILLET
ROUTINES, STAGING IT, WORKING IT, UNIVERSE, SIDE EFFECTS,
INTUITIVELY YOURS, THE ART OF MENTALISM 3, and A JOURNEY
THROUGH THE FOURTH DIMENSION.
All of these have been re-edited and revised and are now in
this 400 plus hardcover book. Some of the pictures have
been replaced with gorgeous illustrations by Tony Dunn.
There's also an index to the effects in the back of the book
as well as a full table of contents for each book.
As to what it contains, let's just say it covers just about
everything. Yes, Bob does go over some material that is
discussed in the first volume, but the majority of the
material is different.
Obviously, I highly recommend the book and most certainly
place it in the must-have category. I probably would do
that if I hadn't been so deeply involved in its publication.
But I was and so I wouldn't blame you if wanted to get a
less biased opinion about this. (You know you can't wait
for this, though, right?)
