Bob Cassidy

Intuitively Yours by Bob CassidyThis is a complete presentation for corporate and professional groups - performance rights included.

It's no secret that public and keynote speaking is one of the most lucrative markets for the skilled mentalist. Instead of earning $500 to $1500 for a typical program, the speaker generally makes ten times that. Many mentalists, though, feel a bit awkward with the idea of wrapping a piece of entertainment up as a serious lecture. Probably because of the natural feeling that's it's just a bit dishonest to use mentalism as a means of "selling" pop psychology or spurious science.

It was exactly...

Juegos Mentales by Bob CassidyEl legendario Bob Cassidy solía terminar su famosa actuación de mentalismo con una demostración que dejaba boquiabiertos a propios y extraños: era capaz de memorizar una baraja realmente mezclada por los espectadores en menos de quince segundos.

Este breve manual es la síntesis de décadas de trabajo para lograr ese efecto, al alcance de cualquier persona con unas capacidades mentales estándar. El sistema que aquí se describe permite memorizar secuencias completas no solo de cartas, sino de palabras nombradas al azar por espectadores, listas de objetos o cualquier otra información...

La Vera Arte Del Cold Reading by Bob CassidyBob Cassidy, autentico genio del Mentalismo del XX secolo, offre la sua visione a proposito del Cold Reading, uno degli strumenti più potenti a disposizione degli intrattenitori del mistero. E lo fa a suo modo!

Non solo propone la sua «review» critica circa molti dei testi riconosciuti come autorità, spesso demolendo (in modo assolutamente costruttivo!) alcune autorevoli voci del settore, ma fornisce al lettore decine e decine di suggerimenti, finezze e segreti derivanti dalla sua decennale esperienza nel campo.

Chiunque proponga Mentalismo avanzato (Q&A, one on one, lettura di biglietti,...

Laboratory Conditions by Bob CassidyHistory - "Laboratory Conditions" - Bob's first commercial effect - was originally released in 1976 by Frank Pazel. Supplied with the effect were two pieces of plexiglas, rubber bands, some aluminum foil and a specially gimmicked pen. Except for the foil, none of the other items were necessary to accomplish the effect, but Frank felt that the effect wouldn't sell unless it came with props.

The late Ed Mishell gave the effect a very favorable review in Genii magazine - but, then again, Ed gave favorable reviews to just about everything. That, together with the fact that nobody in the magic world...

Mind Burners by Bob CassidyMind Burners - illustrated with color photographs and videos of each critical move, features two completely routined performance pieces from Bob's own working repertoire. "The Manchurian Gambit" is a demonstration of "psychic brainwashing", based on Richard Condon's novel and John Frankenheimer's 1962 film classic, "The Manchurian Candidate". An audience member, completely unaware of what he or she is doing, follows the mentalist's psychic commands. Not only completely amazing, this is one of the funniest and most memorable routines Bob has ever performed.

Mind Explosions by Bob CassidyMind Explosions is about closers, the routines which will leave your audience laughing, crying, awestruck, applauding, or sleeping. The two routines, "The Number of the Beast", and "Checkmate" begin as traditional, albeit very impressive, demonstrations of lightning calculation and memory. Both end with an unexpected synchronistic twist that leaves audiences stunned.

If you have ever performed the super memory effect or "The Knight's Tour", you already know that they are classic effects that are effective before any intelligent audience. In Mind Explosions you will learn a method of performing...

Mind Razor by Bob CassidyBob wrote: "Too many of the secrets of our art have become useless because of widespread exposure in the media. It is only via limited releases that I feel I can contribute to the art while not unwittingly prostituting it."

Since Lybrary purchased the copyrights to this ebook we will honor the limited edition to protect past and future customers.

Effect:

A spectator writes a word, a question, or draws a picture on a card-stock billet. (No impression device is used and the mentalist's back may be turned while the spectator writes her thought.) She drops the billet into an ordinary sugar...

One Man Billet Routines by Bob Cassidy
". . . I have found most uses of billets that I've seen to be painful exercises in self-deception on the part of the performer, as to what the audience finds convincing or entertaining. But when I saw Bob Cassidy do his billet routine for an audience of more than a thousand, those silly bits of paper were reduced to virtual non-entities. By the time the routine reached its conclusion he was on stage, standing back-to-back with a spectator, engaged in what was apparently a full scale drawing duplication - with no billets or envelopes anywhere in sight or awareness." - Jamie Ian Swiss, Genii, The Conjurors' Magazine, January 2005

Pseudomentalmente Vostro by Bob CassidyContinua la serie italiana di Bob Cassidy con Pseudomentalmente Vostro, il primo libro pubblicato da Cassidy nel lontano 1977 come supplemento n.2 della rivista Invocation (fondata dall'intrattenitore del mistero Tony Raven e dedicata principalmente a mentalismo e bizarre magick).

La quarta di copertina della prima edizione recitava:

"Una raccolta di inganni psichici originali creati per i mentalisti semi-professionisti o professionisti. Cercando di soddisfare il bisogno di potersi esibire virtualmente in qualsiasi condizione, l'autore ha sviluppato dei principi che rappresentano l'approccio...

Psi Apps by Bob CassidyFeatures "The Elementulum", "Bottled", "Dunningered", and "The Cooperative Almanac" - four completely routined original performance pieces.
  • The Elementulum is a pendulum routine that is visually stunning.

  • Bottled is among the rarest of mental effects - it is performed on a billiard or pool table! A spectator shuffles a pack of cards and scatters them face down all over a pool table. Pool cues are stood upright in each of the six pockets on the table to prevent any balls from being sunk during the effect.

    The performer writes a prediction which is placed in full view. The balls are...

Puzzled by Bob CassidyTHE ONLY VERSION OF THE CLASSIC PUZZLE EFFECT THAT APPEARS TO BE A NEAR TEST CONDITIONS IMPOSSIBILITY.

The method used in Puzzled is completely original with Bob Cassidy. It is based on an "out-of-left-field logical disconnect" that will positively fool anyone who sees it.

The premise of the effect was created by the late English mentalist, Romark, back in the 1970's. A few years ago there was a minor hissy fit in the magic world about the creation and ownership of a jigsaw puzzle effect involving an image of the Mona Lisa. (But apart from the fact that the effect used a jigsawed version...

Return to the Crossroads by Bob CassidyThis is a PDF plus five Real Media video clips demonstrating the moves and handling. Bob works with black cards and black tickets, a nail writer, a fiendishly gimmicked dictionary, a voodoo doll, black clipboards and index cards.

He mixes and matches methods where he finds them most appropriately. A move here, a clever use of ordinary props there and a gimmicked item when the effect calls for it.

Side Effects by Bob CassidyOne of the inherent difficulties in presenting effective mentalism is that it generally lacks the element of surprise. The performer states that he will read a thought and proceeds to do so. He says he will predict tomorrow’s headlines and he does. Many would-be mentalists infallibly demonstrate so many different alleged mental powers that the element of believability is lacking as well.

By applying the "Side Effects" principle, the element of surprise is returned to the art and variety is introduced into a performance without sacrificing believability. Bob's good friend Ross Johnson, one...

Sleightly Mental by Bob CassidyFrom the introduction:
As far as I'm concerned, sleight of hand (or any other artifice for that matter) has but one purpose - to convincingly establish a false premise, which I believe to be the cornerstone of all effective illusion and deception. The more convincingly that premise is established, the more amazing the resulting effect will appear to be.

The subtleties and psychological approaches of mentalism can, when augmented by sleight of hand, provide a directness and clarity of effect that is too often lacking in mental routines. The fact that sleights are avoided by many performers...

Staging It by Bob CassidyThere is no argument about the dilemma faced by many newcomers to mentalism. Are mental effects best presented as natural phenomena of the mind, or as examples of rare paranormal or supernatural abilities?

Most of today's mentalists use the "mental skill" as opposed to the "psychic gift" approach, but only rarely are they particularly consistent about it. Even Joseph Dunninger, the pre-eminent mentalist of the twentieth century, sometimes made conflicting claims. While he stated that his thought reading skills were "scientific" and not those of a fortune-teller or psychic, his promotional materials often...
