We have to admit it – sometimes being selective hurts. Why? It takes time to hand select and pre-select products for our clietele that meets a high standard. So, we came in late on this book – but at least you have a company that does it’s best to pre-select the best for you! This book is certainly in the catagory. The reviewer’s that have provided me with glowing feedback are names I really “wish” I could list here… But wasn’t given permission to do. Simply, if you don’t have this book – get it! Mark Stevens
What Lies Inside is the greatly expanded, updated English edition of a best-selling German book on mentalism (originally titled 13 Steps to Vandalism!) published by Vanishing Inc. Florian Severin is a respected mentalist in his native Germany. In this acclaimed collection, he details sixteen chapters of mentalism effects and theory.
His opinions and material are often shocking and always insightful. You’ll find a balance of methodological ingenuity, presentational inspiration, and technical innovation. And thanks to Florian’s casual, witty style, you will enjoy the journey.
With a foreword by Ken Weber and an introduction by the publishers (Andi Gladwin and Joshua Jay), this is a beautiful, thick hardback book that will delight magicians and mentalists alike. Florian Severin’s approach is perhaps a little different to most mentalists and we think that his book will offer a brand new perspective to presenting mentalism.
Just a sampling of What Lies Inside:
- Help a spectator meet the girl of his dreams!
- Convict a gruesome slasher of beautiful blondes!
- Perform brain surgery on yourself!
- A brand new take on the classic add-a-number…with no adding!
“This cult book was a good reason to learn German … and now the new and strongly revised version is a good reason to learn English!”
