  • About the Author
"This book is easily worth twice the price, if for no other reason than the illustrated plans for creating your own mentalist's switch clip device (eerily similar to Nelson's Mental Gimic). Thornton's 'Direction of Thought' routine with ESP symbols also blew me away. What a great collection!" - Brett McCarron

Partial review from Burling Hull in "The G-D D--n Truth About Magic" Vol. 2:


"At last here is a really top value and PRACTICAL series of effects and routines that work by Dr. Thornton (medical doctor) who plainly PERFORMS mentalism feats. The best publication of practical effects in five years in my judgment."
