Tony Corinda's landmark work, 13 Steps To Mentalism, is widely considered to be the mentalist's bible. In this comprehensive DVD series, modern-day master Richard Osterlind performs dynamic effects from each step of Corinda's seminal work in front of a live audience. Then, along with co-host Jim Sisti, digs deep into the principles and concepts that make this material so strong and timeless.

Customer reviews for 13 Steps To Mentalism (6 DVDs)



It's an incredible resource for anyone interested in mentalism or magic. Osterlind is a master of the art, and his insights and teachings are invaluable for both beginners and experienced performers.

What's great about the DVD is its structure. Osterlind takes you through each of the 13 steps in detail, covering everything from the basics of mentalism to more advanced techniques and routines. The explanations are clear and concise, and Osterlind's demonstrations are a joy to watch.







What an incredible stroke of luck it was for me to come across this video. Actually, it wasn't really luck, since a reviewer if the 13 Steps book highly recommended it. The teaching by Osterlind feels like an old friend sharing some insider secrets ... which it is, I suppose! Well worth the money for the download, and I highly recommend it to anyone who didn't really get as much as they had wanted from the book itself.



Wow, it's hard to even convey how much inside, super-pro material is covered in these videos. I've already put some into practice with a lot of WOWs and HOW DID YOU DO THAT?s.

13 Steps to Mentalism is the beginning of great mentalism. The DVDs are crafted well and follow the concepts in the book of the same name. I was glad I found these DVDs.



This is a remarkable work. I am fairly new to magic and was quite interested in Corinda as it is mentioned by all blogs about mentalism, it seems. I got the book and was working my way through it, but I am much faster and better as a visual learner. I watched the discs in no time. Now, I'm going back to the book (as there is still much in the book that is not on DVDs). I would recommend this for anyone who is fairly new to mentalism, especially if you are a visual learner. It would be a little better if it was a download as only one of my older laptops even has a disc drive.
