Today, known throughout the world, Corinda has been acclaimed as inventor, writer, and teacher of Mentalism - the art of mind-reading. While on tour in America, his friends persuaded him to write a book and with the support of nearly every professional Mentalist in the world, Corinda set out to compile The Thirteen Steps to Mentalism.

After two years the series was published step by step. Without the advice of friends and invaluable assistance of the Puslisher, Harry Clarke, the task would have been impossible. However, Corinda succeeded in producing what has now become the most classic encyclopedia of mental magic. For this, he has received many honours - including recognition from The Magic Circle who awarded him membership to the Inner Circle with Gold Star - a covetous award.

My Review

If you're at all interested in mentalism, you really need this. It provides the foundation for 90% of what you're doing. It's not as if you'll be getting a series of hot routines out of this... it's more about the thinking and psychology that goes into the effects you're performing.

Yes, much of this might seem dated now, because so many mentalists have taken the ideas and principles in this book and improved them, modernized them, and made them their own... but it should still be part of your education to see where it all started.

I would also recommend Osterlind's excellent DVD series based on this book. It does a great job of bringing the material to life; however, don't make the mistake of thinking the DVDs are an adequate substitute. It'd be impossible to distill this entire book into a set of DVDs. You really do still need the book.

I found this book to be very long winded. A lot of complicated material in here, but also very good material. I can't really say this is the beginner's book to mentalism. When I got it I was a beginner and found a lot of it very hard to do. There is a ton of really nice information in here but it's not all the most practical. And comparing to today's modern mentalism acts, it doesn't really compare because of the variety. We are doing more direct effects now that it's only worth the read in my opiniion. Maybe you can branch off to other things, but it's up to you.
