This is some of the most enjoyable mentalism I have ever read or tried. All of Scott’s books are to be savored and used. 5-star material, easily adaptable to anyone’s style. If occasional math frightens you, don’t let it — he holds your hand — and makes it as easy as 1 plus 1. I don’t know where Scott St. Clair has been all my life, but I am glad he is in it now. His material is very highly recommended, and used, by me.’ – Marc Salem
This is the soft cover version. This book is also available in limited edition hardbound (which is limited to 75 and comes with a signed and numbered card and anagram from Scott St Clair). See bottom of page for link.
Scott St Clair is definitely “cooking” after his successful release of BloodSucker, the book-test that has become the 2nd all time selling book-test at Stevens Magic behind MOABT. He has the respect of many of his peers who have provided testimonials including but not limited to Steve Drury and Luca Volpe. We at Stevens Magic have an affinity to recognize a prolific mind when we see it – Scott St Clair has it!
Following the release of his book test, BloodSucker, Scott St. Clair is proud to bring to the community his first book, Ratoon. Ratoon is a collection of mentalism effects that are featured in Scott’s actual repertoire. There are no pipe-dreams, this is all workable mentalism.
Included in Volume 1:
- Sign of the Times—a straight forward, simple star sign divination.
- The Path—a uniquely powerful, numerology effect with an interesting presentation.
- Calendoku—a real fooler and a great follow up for The Path.
- Reading the Signs—a very unusual ‘Tarot’ routine.
- Quick Change—pseudo hypnosis with a simple, no skill method, interesting
premise and killer presentation.
- Quince—a book test without a book!
- PLUS—thoughts on the centre tear and thumb writers.
“Scott has the synapse necessary to understand what makes mentalism powerful… He acutely understands the power and know-how to make a connection. His thought process is calculated in a beautiful way from someone in the art that has a solid understanding of the fundamentals of mentalism. My prediction – his rise will continue for a long time.” – Neal Scryer.
Hi Mark – As part of PSYCRETS, I obviously come across some great underground talent, and wanted to give you a “head up” about Scott St Clair” – Steve Drury.
“I believe Scott’s work opens new dimensions for the Mentalist and every serious entertainer. Buy and savor it. 5-stars.” – Marc Salem

I own every volume of The Greater Magic Library and always thought that series was the ultimate secret exclusive weapon.
