Psychological Subtleties 1 - magic

Banachek, first came to national prominence as one of two teen-age "psychics" validated by the Parapsychology Department at Washington University as part of Randi's "Project Alpha" experiment. 

In this mentalism classic, Banachek reveals the true secrets of his success: psychological subtleties that transform "mental magic" into "psychic entertainment." Most of the effects require no advance preparation and may be performed at a moment's notice. 

From the introduction by Teller: "BANACHEK IS BRILLIANT at subtle deceptions. My partner Penn and I have repeatedly called upon his vast knowledge, diabolical ingenuity, and remarkable imagination, and have never been disappointed. This man has the goods, and now you do, too. But be careful. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS BOOK. In the wrong hands, these subtle, deeply devious methods could be used to convince audiences that the performer is not an artist, but a supernatural being. .."

Pages: 212 - Hardbound with Dust Jacket

Customer reviews for Psychological Subtleties 1


Honestly it was an okay book.

If I hadn't gotten a deal on it I would be upset. The first half of the book was really good and I opened my eyes to the psyche of people. After that part of the book, not so much.

If I was to grade it on a one to five-star scale I'd be comfortable with three stars.
