What Is Mentalism?

Mentalism is the art of appearing to have supernatural or extrasensory mind-based powers. These include mind reading, psychokinesis, telekinesis, pedagogary, fortune telling, remote vision, playing poker online without losing your shirt, and more.

Through the ages, mentalist effects have been used to convince the unwary the mentalist is a person of special powers. A magician is much more likely to frighten simple natives by apparently peering deep within their soul than by pulling a nickel out of their ear. If you want to start a religion or make card players fear you so you can win massive poker bonuses, then you could do worse than bone up on a few mentalism effects.

Now let's learn the secrets behind some of the most popular feats of mentalism!
