Unreal Book - magic

Bruce Bernstein has spent over three decades creating, refining and developing some of the most devious feats of mentalism known to man. He's become a trusted, go-to source for many of the greatest mind readers of the last twenty years. He's collected an enviable list of endorsements from nearly every great magician and thought reader of the last thirty years. And now he's gathered together years of thought-provoking, engaging writing into a comprehensive hardbound collection that showcases his work in the finest possible light.

It's called Unreal.

This new book contains Bernstein's most baffling, amazing brainchildren. From commercial predictions (Eat at Joe's), to mind-numbing card miracles (Psych-Out, a revelatory 10 Card Poker Deal), to must-learn techniques (Bernstein Center Tear), and beyond, Unreal covers territory essential to every wonder worker's repertoire.

The book outlines mysteries with the most basic of objects: slips of paper, cards, and money, as well as inexplicable feats of thought reading: predictions, mind reading feats, psychometry, utility techniques for obtaining secret information, cold reading scripts and techniques, and more. Ten new essays compliment the tricks themselves, each written specifically for this book.

All of the miracles described in these pages are within the skill set of the average mentalist. No complicated sleight-of-hand or digital dexterity is required. That said, a healthy dose of chutzpah may be necessary in several instances.

It's all explained in a familiar, engaging style, expertly illustrated by Tony Dunn. Unreal may be the book's title, but performing the miracles it explains is most definitely within reach of everyone that reads it.

All material newly edited and expanded and illustrated, with an introduction by Jon Stetson.

Pages: 242 (plus xii) 7.5" x 10" - Deluxe real linen hardcover - Black and white illustrations

Customer reviews for Unreal Book



I had heard of Bruce Bernstein before, but this book was an absolute treasure. Turns out Bernstein has created or tweaked some of the most important principles in mentalism. The book is dense-absolutely full of practical mentalism material. And I got the same feeling reading it that I got reading the Barrie Richardson books: that this man is a sage, wise guy who knows his own material inside and out and has a reason for everything. It's the kind of book you will WANT to re-read as soon as you're done.
