Review: Practical Mental Magic

practicalmentalNice to see a classic get a great modern-day review

From the basic principles most mentalists rely on to some fairly elaborate presentations, Anneman’s 1944 guide to mentalism is amazing. I had some idea how some of these tricks work, but this was a really fun book to find and read. Practicing Mental Magic has been described to me as The Royal Road to Card Magic for mind readers, now I know why. This book is packed the tricks, tips and secrets of the trade.
