From the disturbed mind of Paul Voodini comes this latest ebook - Hypno-Mental Self-Working Card Tricks
. Simple and classic self-working card tricks are taken and thoroughly shaken up in a way and manner that only Paul Voodini could conceive of.
While on a trip to Bermuda, séance host and mind-reader Paul Voodini is forced to while away the hours by entertaining his fellow travellers with his favourite self-working card tricks. However, as you can imagine, the card tricks soon become demonstrations of the untapped power of the mind. Spectators are placed into light trances which allows them to tap into the intuitive parts of their brain, selected cards are used to divine the future and tell fortunes, and the power of positive thinking is demonstrated beyond doubt! This is simple magic transformed into strong magic, self-working card tricks that will simply blow your spectators away! All routines outlined are ideal for both close-up and parlour work.
To the spectator, this is as close to real magic as it’s possible to get!

Simply put, this may be my favorite magic ebook. It's fun to read and it offers a few wonderful routines. 'A Demonstration of Hypnotic Mind Reading' may be a rather boring title, but it is a perfect set piece for a small gathering. The method will disappoint (it's almost TOO easy), but it's not about the method. It's an amazing routine if you are able to conjure up the appropriate atmosphere. The other routines are great as well, offering good stories, straightforward methods.
