Volume 2 continues where A Lifetime in Magic Volume 1 left off with detailed explanations for over 20 Devin Knight masterpieces. (Note that this is a compilation of items that were released earlier. All of them are available individually on Lybrary.com. See links throughout the product description.)
It starts with three stunning effects that appear to be as near to real mindreading as you can get - Almost Real Mindreading Feats. Devin explains little known principles which will enable you to reveal repeatedly which hand a spectator is merely thinking of, to remove the card a spectator simply looked at in a fan, and to name a mentally chosen card without fishing or clues.
- Think of a Hand
- Challenge Think of a Card
- Super 52 Card Challenge
The ebook then moves into a section in which Devin offers you six different effects using his Sanda Panda Mystery Box
. This is a simple ungimmicked drop lid box which you can handle in such a way as to create unfathomable miracles. For example, you can use it as a prediction container, for a book test, or you can have a signed selected card appear folded inside the box. There are so many ways that this principle can be used.
- Impossible Card Predictions
- Uncanny Book Test
- Rapid Card Flight
- Deal or No Deal
- Precognitive Cold-Reading
Next you come to the core of this ebook's material - Clip Sight
. This is a special clip board that is very easy to make which will enable you to create miracles without having to resort to dodgy electronics or unnatural handlings. This is very clever and so practical, and although Devin provides full details of 10 killer effects using it (including an awesome Headline Prediction), any mentalist worth his salt will be able to find many other applications for it too.
- Encircled Thought
- Double Take
- Mental Vacation
- Question Revelation
- Simplex Drawing Duplication
- Revealing a Thought Never Written
- Impossible Card Prediction
- Totally Impossible card Prediction
- Foreseen - A Nu-way Headline Prediction
The ebook concludes with four more routines, including a very unusual book test in which a selected signed page is ripped from a book and burnt, only to return fixed inside the book.
Volume 2 contains a lot of reputation making mentalism and psychic material, and so if this is your area of interest, you will find much to inspire you in its pages.
