Reviewers praise Rich Fergusons This is Mentalism for avalanche of advice, practicalityReviews for Rich Ferguson’s latest video, “This is Mentalism,” have been posted on the forums and reviewers are praising the video’s quality, variety and Ferguson’s teaching. Some of the comments we’ve heard from forum members include:

“At the end of the day, this is a really solid collection of mentalism effects that will hit audiences hard, but that don’t require a lot of work (method-wise) from you. There’s a lot of focus on presentation, which is really the more important element when performing mentalism.” –Kevin Reylek

“He comes off as a very personable guy who really wants you to learn the material. You can tell he’s not a magician looking to spill out a bunch of sub-par effects onto an overpriced DVD.” –Jason.Michael

“There are many useful effects that can go right into your routine. There are some old ideas that have been re-vamped, and Rich is great at re-creating an old idea.”
–Mallow81

“What I liked about the DVD is the value. You get alot of psychological subleties, mentalism information and advice.” –FishSticks

“When I first started looking into mentalism routines they seemed boring and complicated. I did not realize how much easier it could be and how interesting it was until I watched this DVD. Ferguson’s advice on mentalism is great and sensible. He could have done an entire DVD over just mentalism theory and it would have been worth the twenty nine dollars! I truly learned a lot.” –Brandon Sheffield

“The real gems are the bits of advice on performance, framing and structure of the effects that Rich talks about. The mechanics are always simple. There’s not one ‘real’ sleight in the DVD. There’s a couple bold moves, but nothing is difficult. The real genius is the way he presents those simple mechanics. There’s also a nice 15 minute or so section with Rich just talking about different ways to perform and frame effects at the end that is pretty great.” –Christopher Thiesse

“The value of This is Mentalism is that Rich teaches you the nuances of how to perform those effects. You can watch this video just to learn the effects or you also can think about what Rich is telling you regarding presentation and apply that to other mentalism effects and magic effects. If you do the latter, you will get a double benefit from this video.” –RealityOne
